Really? It's been that long?

I know it has been that long since I posted an update here. There have been so many things going on in my life. In fact they continue to go on. But all I can say is that life goes on. All I can do is make the very best of every day. That's what I have been doing.

Meanwhile my precious daughter has a new boyfriend. He seems to be a good guy. She has known him for several years and he is a gentleman to her. And he WORKS!!!! They are going to shoot some fireworks tonight I think. Her boyfriend bought quite a bit of them today. This part of Kentucky now sells the "good kind" of fireworks. Most people usually had to make a trip to Boomland in Missouri in order to get them but now they are available locally. It is a bit worrisome for me because I am afraid there are going to be people hurt from them during the holiday weekend but there isn't anything that I can do about that.

For those of you who didn't know my husband and I are separated. He has filed for divorce. There is no chance of any reconciliation. I will spare you the details since it is graphic and not appropriate for a family blog. I will only say that what has happened is something that is an absolute deal breaker. I never thought that my life would turn the way it has but I know that The Lord never puts more on you than you can handle so I turn everything over to Him.

We have our house up for sale. I am getting ready to hire a realtor since the 'for sale by owner' doesn't seem to be working. The realtor I am going to hire is one of the best in town. I realize too that it could and more than likely will take 6 months or more to actually sell it. People just aren't spending money like they used to.

I have my mare for sale. I never ride anymore anyway. My back is getting worse and riding makes it even worse so it is necessary. I know I won't get much for her but that's ok. I just want to make sure that she gets a good home. The equine market has dropped so much in the last few years I might even end up giving her away as long as she has a good home. That is the most important thing to me. She is a good horse but is only green broke and needs a lot of work.

I plan on moving closer to work which means I will live in town. But I will have my babies (Sophie and Patty) with me along with my son who has been living with me for a few weeks now. He is working with his dad's business but his dad is shutting it down so that won't last long. It's ok though. I know that things will work out for the best and I just keep the faith. Every night I turn everything over to God and let Him handle what I can't. So far He is doing a pretty good job I must say.

I hope to get some pictures of my girls on here soon. They are doing so well. Sophie has lost her weight due to a change in diet and Pattykins is just a mess! She is such a talker. I love it. I have been trying for over a year to teach her to say 'I love momma' but she just can't do it. She tries but it doesn't come out like that. I guess ya can't have everything.

I am going to miss my life in the country and all of the peace and serenity that comes with it but I know in my heart that I am doing the right thing. It will all work out. I just keep the faith.
