San Antonio April!

Well, I FINALLY got word that I'm definitely going to San Antonio and will be heading that way in April. So, it looks like I better get things figured out about what I'm going to do for a house! Looks like I might finally become a home owner! Kinda scary, actually! I think it's time to put in in God's hands and see what He comes up with. I sure can't figure it all out on my own!

So, I'm looking forward to going back to Texas, where it's much warmer than here and I feel at home. The people there are so wonderful and friendly and make you feel so welcome! It's the one place since I left home that I really felt like I belonged and was at home. I'm looking forward to getting back to that! And once I'm set up, let me know if you're ever planning to come to the area!

I'll post more soon!

HUGS to you all,

Howdy, all!!!

So, I haven't really been around much happens, ya know! So, my trip to San Antonio was great and I think I might have found a house to buy once I get orders and know I'm going there. I really loved the layout of it and the friendly atmosphere of the area. The sales rep, David was great and he introduced me to a wonderful realtor, Joyce, who has been a huge help. Now I'm just waiting to talk to branch and see if I'm still going there or not before I buy a house! lol - that would be just my luck, too!

Life here in Annapolis is more of the same. Though, tonight I'm actually heading to dinner and a movie with my friend, Kristin. Should be fun as we are going to see Bride Wars. I'll let ya know how it is! I'm really looking forward to it actually. I don't even remember the last movie I saw in the theaters and it will be fun to have some girl time! YAY!!

I'll write my review tonight or tomorrow!

So, I'm down on the River Walk at the Crowne Plaza, until tomorrow when I move to the Best Western. I'm not overly impressed with this place, so I'm gonna head somewhere a bit cheaper when I'm on my dime! lol Last night I met up with 2 friends that I wasn't able to spend much time with in San Angelo and they happen to be here in San Antonio for a conference. So, we headed down to the River Walk and had dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Then we headed back to the hotels - they walked me towards mine and then headed to theirs.

So far, so good with San Antonio, but tomorrow I will venture out a bit and see what the area is like and see if I can find an area I want to live in. Wish me luck! lol

Bein' back home....away from home

So, my trip to San Antonio yesterday was pretty uneventful and my foot did pretty well. I was able to sit in the front row on the plane and the distance to the wall was perfect for me to prop my foot up so I could keep it elevated. Then on the drive to San Angelo, I propped it up on the dash and drove with my left foot. I'm sure vehicles wondered what was going on that I passed or that passed me, but it turned out just fine. The swelling wasn't too bad when I got here, so it must have worked.

It was great to spend time with my adopted family, the Benes' family, Lonnie, Becky, Hannah and Mary Francis. I even got to see Doodle, John and Janet - Becky's Mom, Dad and sister. I also made it into town soon enough to go to Hannah's basketball game, which was very cool to see. I don't remember seeing teams play that well in the 7th grade. The girls did a great job! I was very proud of Hannah!

Tonight I went back over to their place for dinner and just visited with them for a while, as last night we didn't really get to visit too much. It was really wonderful to be back where I feel at home and am part of another family. We're all hopeful that we'll be able to see more of each other once I'm settled in San Antonio. It's funny because when I called them last week to let them know I was coming to town, I said to Lonnie, "I'm coming home next week." That's exactly how I felt when I was driving up from San Antonio. I felt like I was going home. I always knew I loved my time spent here before and that I would always have my "other family" here, but it was a pretty cool feeling I must say! So, whether I end up in San Antonio, Austin or back here in wonderful San Angelo, I think I can safely say that Texas will most likely be a large part of my future life!

Well, now it's time to get a good night's sleep.

Niters all,

Heading to Texas...

So, after being sick in bed all week, I finally went back to work today...and found out I'm going to Texas next week! lol  So, just a quick note to let everyone know that I'll be in San Angelo Mon-Thurs and San Antonio Thurs-Sat(or Mon). It's just a quick trip for work and I'm hoping to stay in San Antonio a couple of days to check out the area I'm supposed to be moving to in April.

I hope this finds everyone well and enjoying the new year and that it's getting off to a GREAT start for you all!

Howdy again!

So, I'm finally stopping by just to say a quick hello and let you all know I am alive and well....well, alive anyway! lol I seem to have caught quite a cold in the last few days since getting back to MD. Needless to say, I haven't done much since I got back home. I did, however, go out last night just quick enough to grab some milk, OJ, and cold medicine! Of course, the only "shoe" I could fit on my right foot was a house slipper. I'm sure that was quite comical for everyone at the convenient store as I "crutched" myself around in one croc shoe and one slipper! lol Oh well, I hope I kept them entertained! lol I am at least down to just one crutch when I need it. When I'm walking around the house, I usually don't use it, so I'm doing much better! Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day, as it's my first back to work and then I go back to the doc in the afternoon. Pray that all goes well and the stitches come out easily!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Just a quick note to wish you all the Happiest of New Years! I watched TV until almost 4AM and then went to bed. Lots of excitement for New Years Eve, I know.....but that's ok. I'm a bit limited in what I can do right now, so it was just fine with me. I hope you all had a bit more excitement to your celebrations! Now that the holidays are over, I guess things can go back to normal! I'd be pretty happy if the weather would go back to being warm, but I guess I have a couple of months before that's going to happen! Bummer!

Well, I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
