Meeting Boomer Sooner!!!!

I'm so excited that on Friday I get to meet Valerie (Boomer Sooner) from Oklahoma!!!!!
We met this past year blogging and have become good friends via the internet!
Whoever thought when I started blogging last January that I would meet such wonderful folks in the blog world. I have made some awesome friends and have laughed and cried with so many of you over the past year via our blogs.

Valerie will be my first blogger friend that I will have the opportunity to get to meet. Valerie is flying to Virginia with her sister to visit her niece, who goes to college there. We talked a long time ago about how much fun it would be to meet each other. When Valerie decided to fly out with her sister, she emailed me and we planned to meet and go to lunch. It is about a 2 hour drive for me to get to where she is visiting. With the leaves changing colors right now, it will be a beautiful drive!

Poor Valerie, there were problems in Atlanta and her trip from Oklahoma to Virginia took all day and night! They couldn't fly into the city where they were supposed to be visiting. Instead, they had to fly to another city and her niece had to drive over to pick them all up and take them to their hotel.

Valerie called this evening to tell me that they had arrived in Virginia, but they still had the drive to the city where her niece goes to college. I know they are exhausted!
I have never been to the city where we are going to meet (just driven by there on the highway) and I am looking forward to getting to see some new sites. I have a friend who used to live there and another friend whose mother-in-law lives there and I asked them to suggest a good place for lunch. Can you believe it, they both suggested the same place!

I am so excited to meet Valerie, her sister and her niece! God amazes me at how he puts people in our lives. Who would have ever thought when I started blogging that I would meet so many wonderful people!!!!

I'm sorry that I have had a lapse of posting on my blog. My fall has been crazy!
You name it, it has happened.......
My camera broke and I had to get a new one, our computer was on the blink and it took a while to get it fixed, we had to change our internet carrier, I started a new job and I now work full time as a Nanny, for 2 months in the fall I was out of town every weekend but one, our water line broke coming into our house and we had to have a new water line put in, etc. , etc. Now I have misplaced my cord to the camera, so I haven't been able to upload my pictures. I can't win for losing, as they say. LOL!!!!

Hopefully things are going to slow down a bit and I am going to get some semblance of order back into my life. Is that possible? I was off work this past week, because the family I work for has been at Disney World. I love being at home and I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to get some much needed projects done around the house. I have enjoyed spending time with friends and also my family.

I have cleaned out my entire kitchen (cabinets, drawers, etc), cleaned out my master bedroom closet, cleaned out all of my bathrooms (cabinets, drawers,etc), cleaned out my pantry, laundry room, freezers, refrigerator, etc. Plus, I have done some yard work. I have been busy this week!!!

Although I have done a lot, there is so much more that I want to do. I am beginning to panic when I realize that Sunday is November 1st and that means Thanksgiving is just right around the corner and it is less than 2 months until Christmas.

As I am working to get my life back into some order, please bear with me. Although I have not been posting as much, I have tried to read your blogs regularly and make comments to keep in touch. Valerie and I will be sure to take lots of pictures to put on our blogs of our visit with each other on Friday. I can't wait!!!!!

PS I have edited this post for over an hour and I can't get the large type to go away on my finished blogpost. It does not show up on the edited version, before I hit publish post. Go figure!! I am just going to leave it. I have to go to bed. Good Night!!!

  1. you make me laugh.....only because i have similar frustrations with blogging....like trying to change the font, or posting a post more than once. it sometimes seems like it take me forever just to upload pics, write and organize. by then, the words I type come across like a 1st grader wrote it! Anyway, that is awesome that you are meeting up with a blogging friend! You sure have been busy!Thanks for checking in with us though and leaving me sweet comments. Those always brighten my day. Oh, and how lucky is the family to have YOU as their nanny! Pretty dang lucky if you ask me!

    Emjoy your weekend!

  13. Hi sweet friend! Life is gradually getting back to "normal" for me so I'm hoping to be able to visit more often. Thanks for being so sweet and visiting me often and leaving comments while I've been AWOL.

    I've had similar problems with large print sometimes. It's soooo darn frustrating! Here's what has worked for me....click on the "preview" tab and copy and paste the words that are showing up too large; then go back to your post and click on the "edit" tab and delete the words that have been too large; now click back on the "compose" tab and paste it all back again. Now publish as usual. That should work. Hope so.

    Hugs!

  14. I've just discovered your blog, and I'm so excited. While reading your profile, I realized how much we have in common. I too am an empty nester. We have 3 beautiful daughters, with the youngest having moved out in June. I married my college sweetheart 32 yrs. ago - he's the love of my life. I've painted and collected Santas for years, and Christmas is absolutely my favorite time of year. Four yrs. ago I was had breast cancer - only one year to go to reach that 5 yr. mark!!!

    I look forward to following your blog and hope you will visit mine. Just started blogging in October and love it.

    Thanks!!!!

  15. Saw your comment on Rhondi's blog that you live in Greensboro. I live at Lake Norman, so I'm just dropping in to say "hello".

  16. BTW, just went up & read your profile. You should go over to my blog & look at my Christmas photos from last year. I also collect Santas, and did a post on it. In your profile photo, you don't look a day over 35 either.
