I didn't mean to disapear on everyone...

I'm not sure anyone is still out there to read this, it's been so long since I posted. When I started my blog, my goal was a new post every week day and to try to be amusing at least once a week... Well, I don't feel very amusing these days... I mostly feel physically and emotionally drained. You know the old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, then say nothing at all?" Well, my blogging credo was something like this: "If you can't be amusing, uplifting or at least positive, don't post." I know I haven't always kept to that, but I have tried... Based on that credo I shouldn't even be posting now, but here goes...

We made it to Maine safe and sound. The Girlies and I hit the ground running as full time care givers to my step-dad (who has Alzheimer's). He is a great guy, but the past week has been exhausting... I don't want to bury you with all the gory details but it has been a lot to handle... I don't know how my mom has done it all these years, because I am drained. My mom is currently in a nursing home recovering from her latest issues and may be home in about another week and half or so. In some ways I look forward to that, so she can deal with him, but in others I dread it as I know my work in some ways will double. I miss the Axeman very much... He is back in TN wrapping things up, and I could really use his quiet strength right now.

We have had computer & internet trouble so I can't post any pictures... but suffice it to say... we have moved into a post card...It has been beautiful here it is almost unreal... I think the Lord is reminding me of his presence everywhere.

I am working on resolving the computer issues as I type this, so hopefully soon I can share the upside of moving to Maine with y'all... As for the stress... I am really trying to find balance... I need to find a church and get in touch with some old friends here make some  new friends. I am surrounded by my mom's friends, which is some what helpful, but their first allegiance is to her (as I'd expect it to be), so everything is "reported back"... Not extremely helpful for someone like me who needs to "vent" from time to time...

There are funny stories to tell, but I need some perspective to properly tell them... Thanks for hanging in there y'all!

& Thanks for listening,


  1. I'm so sad to hear you have moved away. You and your family will be well missed. I've also been really bummed out.. I hate posting anything when I bummed.. nothing comes out right.. my last post was sometime in April. David did not get a job on Ft. Campbell.. he did get a job though.. in Mississippi.. downside is we're moving.. upside his family is there (wait.. or is that the downside.. time will only tell..lol). I love you Rebecca and hate that we didn't spend more time together. I wish you the best! And don't ever give up your blog! You're awesome!

  2. I'm glad to hear you made it safe and sound. I'm sorry to hear that you are drained. I'll be praying that you are filled with God's peace, energy, and love.

  3. I'm sorry to hear how drained you feel. But, I am still here reading your blog. I know what you mean about trying to keep your blog uplifting, but sometimes you just need to vent.

    Take care.

  4. I was just thinking about you and wondering if you had moved! Wow. I'm sure you are sooo busy. Wish I could send you some energy!


  5. I still check here, and am so glad yall made it safe. I bet it does look like a picture perfect post card. God IS showing you His Magnificence!(spelling?) Hopefully the axeman will be there soon and all will go smoother. Blessings and love and you are missed! hope your mom recovers this week in order to come home :)

  6. Hope your life seems more settled soon!

  7. I miss you here! But I am glad to hear that you are getting settled in somewhat nicely. Remember you can always call to vent. I'm on FB now too. Finding a church and new friends may take time, but hopefully you'll fit back in with your old friends quickly. TMake sure to take time for yourself, your husband, and the girls too.

  8. First I want to say how sorry I am to hear that everything has been so crazy and stressful for you. And how proud I am of Kate for graduating.
    I have not read your blogspot for a while, I know shame on me. I have been beyond busy.
    Second your back! Your back! I am soooooo thrilled! In my crazy life I have become very disorganized. So unlike me. Call when you get a chance. I'd love to come and see you or have the family for a cookout, you and the girls for lunch whatever will work for you.
    Talk soon, Dawn
