Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year!

As 2014 disappears on the horizon, in reflection, I’m thankful that we’re in our new house and are really enjoying it. I’ve met a lot of great folks that were patient and answered my many questions about home construction. And of course I’m thankful for my better half. She’s the one that has to put up with me every day.

 What could be better than Cran-Apple Pie for Breakfast?

Like the other day, when early in the morning I announced to her “I’m just going to warn you that I’m going to be really sick by the end of the day. I think I’m going to have the flu.” Now I’m like most husbands in that we can put up with a lot of things patiently (uh huh). With the exception of being sick. Then no matter what it is, when we get sick we convince ourselves that we must be dying and in turn try to convince our better half’s to agree with us and hang over us in deep sympathy. Ya, we turn into big babies.

She looked at me with those eyes as only a wife can do and said very concernedly and sympathetically, “Uh huh, really? Why do you think that?” I answered “Because my eyes are a little achy and that usually means I’m going to get really sick.”

Three days later, being as compassionate as possible and concerned about my well-being she said, “Um, how are you doing with being really sick? I haven’t seen anything yet. Do you think it’s going to be soon?” As only a wife can do. And I had to smile and laugh. I’m so thankful for her.

I’ll get back to house stuff with pics and how we finally moved in over the next few weeks. In the meantime, here’s wishing that you and your families have a great New Year.

Let’s hope that 2015 brings more peace around the world.



  1. You're back! i am so happy! Now, i just need to figure out how to follow you again. So glad things are going well in the new house, but can't wait to see some detail and pictures.

    Hope 2015 is a wonderful year of settling into your wonderful new home!

    1. Hey There!, Yup, I'm back. Happy New Year to you too!

      I've had problems with the Google+ icon. Give it a try now and let me know if it doesn't work. Now if I could just figure out how to have it stop referring back to RI Home I'd be all set!
