Why, hello there all (any?) of you out there in Blog Land! I know, I know. It’s like, “New number, who dis?” But you can’t fool me- I KNOW IT’S YOU, MOM, SO PICK UP THE PHONE!

Ahem. Like I was saying.


I don’t even know where to begin. We are no longer in England now- moved back to the US this past summer (YAY!), so there’s that.

Little Mister AND SweetPea are both potty trained (YAY!), talking, in school, and have both lost their first teeth. So. There’s that, too.

Oh yeah. I’ve also had a couple surgeries that changed the course of my life forever and have been trying to find answers to questions for chronic illness….sooooo…….

There’s that, too.

A lot of that, actually.

HOWEVER. The Lord has been good to us all along the way. He has blessed us beyond measure with an amazing time in England, a church and friends that really helped us when we needed it, and one of the easiest moves back home that I can remember. (Note: I’ve not consulted My Mister for this post. His recollection of the move may be a LOT different than mine. Just saying.)

I just know that 2019 will be an amazing year filled with more adventures, love, laughter, and FINALLY, answers. I was actually going to start a new blog- a new beginning since so much has happened in the last couple years. However, I was reading some of my past entries and thought that maybe, just maybe, there might be some folks out there who read this silly little piece of the internet and wouldn’t mind a quick update.

So, here I am, y’all. It’s been forever and a day, but I’m here. I may still start a new blog, to be honest. However, I thought I'd at least drop a line here to check in. I hope you all have a wonderful and very blessed 2019!


  1. I was just thinking about you and your blog the other day. I'm glad to see you're alive and doing well. :-D

  2. I'm *so* glad to see you back! I always enjoy reading your posts, and have wondered about you from time to time. And I *still* haven't finished my husband's Zelda blanket that was inspired by your Mario blanket (It was intended for his 30th birthday. He will be 36 this year, and now I'm aiming for his 40th . . . ) Anyway take care, glad to see you are doing well, and please do update us if you start a new blog!

  3. It's funny that I was thinking of you earlier this week! I've actually strayed away from my blog and decided to take it down this year. I'm not out with blogging but it may be time to explore a new path. So glad you enjoyed your stint in England and are back home safely! All the best to you and yours in 2019. ~ Libby

  4. I loved reading your article! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Gege, just found your post thru your Super Mario Pillow & Party post. The last 4 years have been a whirl-wind for you it sounds like. Bless you for just "keeping on"! I have had 42 years of a "whirl-wind" myself & know first hand how life's twists & turns can throw you for a loop. A good friend has finally been diagnosed & begun treatment for Lyme Disease so I will send her the info on "Under Our Skin" & watch it myself! Her son turns 5 next weekend & is a Super Mario Bros fan. Found a really cute tshirt of all the characters for him & ideas are now perculating for a future pillow idea for him! I've never tried tunisian crochet & only started projects after quite a few years of major health stuff. I now have 4 Grand "Niblings"(kids of siblings kids!!!). 3 girls & a boy, 3 & under, plus Jeremy, the friend's son from above, who'll be 5. Since last fall, I have made 10 sweaters, plus hats & starting on sox now for the 4 of them! Jeremy has just come into my life after many years of not knowing whhere his Mom was. I wish you all the best,Sweetheart & I will start following your post. You have endured much & survived alot with your moves, health challenges & with a husband & young children who rely on you. I admire you. The old Bible saying "Yeah, tho I walk thru the Valley of Death" came to my mind. My minister says " The "key word" is "WALK"!!! It does not say "Stop Build A House & Squat For Life"!!! That thought has helped me alot in trying times! With all your moves at least you haven't had time to "Build A House" in that Valley!!! Haha. Take good care & you'll be in my thoughts & prayers!!! Be Weller!
