Hey everyone~
You know what, I would love to update my journal more than once every six months.
I suppose live does move fast, sometimes too fast for me. Guess I'll start with my November…

I went to help take care of my mom for a couple of weeks while she recovered from an illness, (She's doing fine now)

Then while there Kenny received some news that was not good. It's nothing life threatening or even medically related (just came to me how that sounded) It's something that I really don’t want to get into at the moment, because of all the four letter words that seem to fly and tears.

In December, because of the not so good news we have decided to relocate so now my house is in a mess as we are packing for a two hundred mile trip to our new residence. So after of just over eleven years of living here, a small town that I love we are leaving. I'm not really happy about it, but there is not a lot we can do but suck it up and move on.

I did get something for Christmas that I've wanted for about ten years. I thought I'd let the picture speak the thousand words for me.


Did I mention that we are moving in with my mom for a while? So in January we went to rearrange some things in her house to accommodate us. We are going to be working on remodeling a older house on the property, (expect a lot of pic spams in the future)
Little fact about our family, my sister and her youngest daughter share the same birthday which was on a day we were there so I made a cake for my sister in the shape of a butterfly and her two oldest decorated it for her, (didn’t think it was such a good idea to have her 7 month old son help, maybe next year) and I made a doll cake for Mackenzie she turned 6.

 My sister's butterfly cake that the girls decorated for her.

Mackenzie's Dora doll cake that she wouldn't let us cut until the next day. I am proud to say that this one had the camera's clicking and Kenny in awe, we've been together over eleven years and he didn't know I knew how to decorate cakes.

So now we are back home, trying to decided what we will keep and what we can get rid of and see and when would be the best time to rent a U-Haul and move. With a snow storm that is suppose to dump up to 12 inches on us coming tomorrow this weekend is out. We are hoping for next, or at least I am only because I want this to be fast, like pulling off a band aid hoping that it won't hurt so much.

I was able to carve out a little time for me, it had come to my attention that I had been missing my OTP Severus/Hermione. So I got a little of them in over the weekend, and I did get a story that had been hiding on my hard drive finished, now to find a beta... anyone interested?

Good Luck with everything. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. I can only imagine how I would feel leaving my little town. I've been here about 14 years now. I think it would kill me a little. But..it sounds like your new life has potential. *hugs*

It does kind of wear on me that we have to go, I try to ignore the boxes. But, I also believe there is a reason for it, the when a door closes another one opens. So it will all turn out okay, or at least how it is meant to.

Oh gosh, LOVE the tattoo, and those cakes, AMAZING! I'm in awe of your skills, especially with kids underfoot! Thanks for the update, it's lovely to hear from you ♥

Thanks, the kids were really not that bad, not for being 6 and 7. And the seventh month old was just happy that Aunt Net gave him some frosting when he rolled in.

The cakes look fabulous! The butterfly one is so creative and the decoration no the doll is awesome.

Too bad about the move. Once you get settled in, it's hard to adjust to such a major change. But, I really believe things happen for a reason, so I hope everything turns out well for you!

If you still need a beta, let me know how long the story is and I'll confirm if I can do it or not.

I do believe that also, there is a reason for it. Even if we dont know what it is right now.

Yeah, still need one. I am going to preface this with I'm in no hurry to get it done, I've had some of it looked over but then RL wouldn't allow me to finish getting it ready. Anyway it's about 60k, that is an estimate I took what I had noticed what most of the words per chapter and then just timesed it by the number of chapters. Anyway I would really appericate it if you could look it over for me. Just let me know.

I was a bit stubborn to the idea that things weren't always entirely in my control, but I've grown up since ;)

Okay, 60K at a "no hurry" pace is definitely something I can take on. You have my email address, so just let me know what kind of feedback you're looking for specifically and I'll get started :)

Well, I thought that I had your email addy... but I've either changed accounts or can not find it in my list. (Need to remember to somthing to id people better with how my memory is sometimes) Could you PM it to me? Or if you prefer I could send you mine.
