So very many things have changed in the past few months. I was surprised to see that I had not updated this blog in a long time. A very long time.
Changes! My oh my. My youngest son and his wife have begun their life as newlyweds. They are enjoying married life very much, and recently found out that they have been approved and have purchased their very first home – that, with some luck they’ll be able to move into by the end of next month. Alex and Michael’s wedding plans are moving right along. Her Bridal Shower was just this past weekend, and it was wonderful.
The biggest change for us as a family was the birth last month of our grandson, Blake William. He arrived on April 7th, and he is absolutely perfect! He is growing beautifully and is doing very well! Amanda and Kevin have adapted perfectly to their roles as Mommy and Daddy. Each and every one of us is beyond thrilled to have this perfect little being as ours.
My own health battles have been in the forefront a few times so far this year, and most recently – I’m currently hospitalized. It’s my good old left kidney acting up again. Kidney infections are not fun – I do not recommend them! Seriously though, I’m being taken care of beautifully in the hospital, and I anticipate being released in the next day or so. With some luck, my kidney issues will be resolved by next Friday when what I hope will be my final procedure will be completed.
All that being said, I would like to announce that I have become an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics. It’s a wonderful company and I have enjoyed working with and for them very much in these past few months. I have learned so much about skin care and makeup. The knowledge I have gained through Mary Kay has helped me to help others – my customers that I have gotten. I am looking forward to learning more and being able to spread that knowledge to what I hope becomes a bigger client base.
And, so – that is what has been new with me. This has been just a brief update, but it is just my most recent one. I will keep writing about things in my life – topics, etc. that affect women. I will be spreading the word about Mary Kay, and I will even be talking a little bit about another little business/side hustle I have begun. Please keep checking to see what I’ve been up to!
