Still Here and kicking

I wanted to do a quick post so everyone knew all was well with us. We just have a lot going on right now. Looking for a house, health issues for rodney and myself, Cub Scout Blue and Gold, sick dog,teenage drama, pre-teen drama, dealing with an ex-husband who still likes to argue after 12 years,and trying to stay caught up on household stuff. Rodney and I also celebrated our 11th Anniversary last Friday (feb. 22). We went out to dinner at "Louisiana Jazz" It was so much fun! So I will share more details and pics of the recent happenings in our super busy lives in a coming post.
Take care and stay away from this nasty flu!(I am looking so forward to SPRING!)
Keep Imagining!
