T Stands for OMGOSH!!!!

SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE! Hello my dear T-day friends and followers.  Yes it has been a while since I did a T-day post and there are 100 reasons why.....LOL!  Some how April got extremely busy, then the first of May DH and I took 10 days and went back to Colorado for a family reunion.  We were there four days......thank goodness we took the trailer....nothing like your own bed.
The night before we left we went out to a very NICE dinner at the Padre Hotel in Bakersfield.  We had to go out and eat because I had let the fridge go empty, and only bought food for the trip! ( yes, I can be very sneaky)  The wine is mine and the beer is Bob's.


While we were waiting for the food to be served we took a "selfie"

Bob ordered the lobster..............

I ordered a supreme tasting steak..........then we shared...........and still brought food home!!

I have tons of photos of the trip and the places we saw coming home.  We took a different route home and saw some amazing country.........but all that will have to wait for another time............

THIS IS WHAT MY HOUSE LOOKS LIKE

 41 YEARS of "stuff" that has to be packed............... this is day 1


the living room......starting to stack back in the corner....

 the end of the sofa...............

the dinning room..........only the china cabinet is empty........we conquered that last night!! and boxes are stacked at the end of the fireplace.

No, our new house is not built yet, but I've done went and sold this one.........and THAT is how you get a new house! LOL!  The spare bedroom has boxes stacked all around the bed too!

One of my paint pals knew we were going to be wanting out of here, and said she would pay cash.......as is........for  a house for her son (long story).  He needs to get out of his neighborhood badly.
The morning after we got home from our trip she calls and wants to know "how much?" Bob said "what we owe on it".....DONE!!!  
Her son put his house on the market and sold it in two days......now in a 30 day escrow!!!!!
Holy Smokes......everything is moving at warp speed..........and I haven't found a place to live until the new house is built!  We are planning on renting a house for a year, then we can take our time with the building of the new house and not have to rush when it comes time to move into it.......and we were afraid we wouldn't be able to sell this one for what we owe against it......so we are taking the money and running!!!
We are going to store all the stuff we won't be needing (I know why are we keeping it??) until the new house is built, I'm getting close on the "house" part......but then there is the garage......OMGOSH!! I get overwhelmed just thinking about "starting" out there....*grin*

So there ya have it!  I will try to check in once in awhile.....I will be taking breaks *grin* and will try to get return visits made........and maybe a post of two. .......maybe we shouldn't have waited until our late 60s to move................ROTFLOL!!!
Don't forget to check out what everyone else is drinking, eating or doing over at Elizabeth's blog.

MOTHER'S DAY

SURPRISE!!! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, nor have I been sick or hurt.....just extremely busy this spring. We have had family here, spring birthdays, track meets, movies with my Paint Pals, painting with the Paint Pals, painting alone (when there is time) and a long over due vacation for DH and me.......even if it was for a family reunion and the list goes on and on! LOL!! I have tons of photos to share, but now I'm not really sure where to start ha!ha! I've missed sitting here making contact with all my friends, but I feel bad when I don't have the time to blog hop and return visits :((

All THAT being said I have to stop here and leave for our son's house for the Mother's Day BBQ.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
