Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. I had a nice night out with my brothers. They took me to a friends house. When I got there, they had made a surprise slide show with pictures of me and others who recently had birthdays. It was so funny seeing me in my younger days! On New Year's Day, we watched the Nebraska football game. It was a good game. We won, but I can't help but think, Rob might have helped in pulling a few strings!! :) As you have all noticed, I have a new "face" for the page. I decided since it was a new year, I should focus on the new us. I'd like to take credit for how good it looks, but of course, my all-too-talented friend Nancy deserves the credit. Thanks, Nancy!!! I'd like to say that I' m getting into the swing of things, but I constantly hit roadblocks. It is such a headache ironing out all the kinks. I know with time, these will diminish, but until then, I'm working on a few gray hairs. Starting in January, I'm going to have Julia start attending a support group called "Charlie Brown Kids". It's specifically for children who've lost parents. I think it will be great for her. She'll be able to relate to these other children and not feel like she is the only one who this has happened to. They also have a group there for the surviving spouse so it will be great for me too. However, depending on how it goes, I may see a counselor one on one too. I know I've said this before but there are so many emotions going through me on top of having to deal with the everyday things. It's extremely overwhelming. I feel like I'm running a hundred miles a minute but barely moving. In a few days, I am going to try to post a link to our house I'm trying to sell in Texas. It's really a beautiful home and I hate to sell it but it's unrealistic for me to keep it when I'm up here. So, if any of you know anyone who's moving to the Ft Hood area, let them know about our house. They will be able to click on the link and see all the details.
