I'm Back


Thanks for all your prayers, QFIL is back from Brazil, safe and sound and I can't wait to hear all the stories of his mission trip.

It's been about a week since I've posted here or come by to visit y'all because my home computer (laptop) wasn't working. My wonderful computer-geek son fixed it and then Capt came over this weekend and fixed it some more. So now I can catch up on my blog reading. Ahhhhh. I feel so much better now.


Things were going so smoothly on the home sale/home purchasing until recently. When I was married my former husband and brother-in-law made my garage and laundryroom into an apartment for his mother to live in. She had spent about 25 years in a mental institution because of paranoid-schizophrenia/clinical depression and wanted to try living on her own. Sounds like a great idea to have her move in, right? Right? Rrrrrrright? Well, that lasted one year....although it seemed more like 100 years. When she was on her meds she was an amazing God-fearng woman and could hardly walk. When she was off her meds she was frightening and she could run around like the dickens...sprint actually. After that year we put her in an Assisted Living Home on a beautiful lake. She thrived there for many years. And she was forced to remain on her meds. Everyone loved her.

Anyho, it appears that someone across the street from me reported to the Town that I had an illegal apartment. Which I do. So now I am in the process of getting a permit for it. Oh, and here's the irony - the person that reported me has an illegal apartment in their garage.

I'm just hoping that everything goes through smoothly with the Town paperwork and inspection so that I don't hold up the purchase of the house in Connecticut.

This past weekend, Capt came over and helped me start with some of the packing. I now feel like I can accomplish this, that it will all be okay and I will not be so overwhelmed and freaked out.

And yet, as if this were possible, I fell even more in love with Capt. Is there no limit?

I'm glad he made it back safe from Brazil. I hope all goes well with the house and the town paperwork. And there is no limit when love is in the air.
