I am working with WordPress on a way to separate them so that they are not all under Dora and the Explorers.  So far it seems it may not be as clean of a differentiation between the three as I want.  You may see things look a little different or act a little different but please be patient as I try to get this worked out.

It may end up requiring my followers to have to sign up to follow each one.  If you’re not interested in each one it’s certainly not a requirement.  If you read any of them from time to time please go ahead and select follow on the right hand side and enter your email address.  WordPress will send you an email each time a blog post is published so you can stay current with all our travels, all the funny and heartwarming Wednesday things and learn all you can about caring or just loving someone with Alzheimer’s.

give thanks scrabble lettersI just left Roy up in the attic of our sticks and bricks house.  The home inspector report gave our house a pretty good the lord is my strengthreport but there were a few things they recommended we do and we agreed to do them.  The house is 26 years old so we’re pleased (and I’m very thankful Roy can do most all of the work) with our short to-do list!  It is costing us money and a lot of hours work on Roy’s part, but I guess it could be worse.

I joined Roy in the attic for 3 hours cleaning off the duct work insulation so the new duct tape would stick.  I then re-duct taped many seams and tears and am quite proud I didn’t fall through the floor/ceiling or fall out of the attic opening which was my biggest fear!  I just kept saying to myself “Be a big girl and you can do it, you can do it.”

Last Wednesday I cooked a big pot of Chili and brought it to Chip’s house for everyone to enjoy.  Precious Madisyn met us at the door with a big smile.  We had a wonderful time visiting with them. Here’s some pictures from our time with them.

Madisyn coloring at the counter. They display her creations under a plexiglass sheet on top of the counter top. She loves it!

We have a couple of weeks (less if all goes well) before the act of sale when we’re officially no longer Hammond homeowners.  That’s my update on our world!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
