I grew up in a tiny little town in Nebraska, couldn't wait to leave when I graduated from high school. Now some 30 years, two marriages and countless addresses later, I have moved to a little tiny town in Nebraska to be with the love of my life. Between the two of us we have 3 cats, a dog and all the dust bunnies a house can hold. Happily living life on life's terms.

allnewsue: You are so right Mich. The History channel rarely shows history stuff which is too bad because I like that stuff. Vacation in Honduras sounds lovely. I wonder if my boyfriend would be up for that.
allnewsue: It's official. Two weeks ago I moved to Nebraska to live with my boyfriend. We met a year ago Memorial Weekend. The more I get to know this guy the more I like him. I admire his sense of balance, his presence of mind, and his loving heart. He comes with some challenges, but his are no worse than mine. We have combined households so now we have 3 cats, 1 dog and all the dust bunnies a house can hold. I am incredibly grateful that I get to be a part of his life and that he wants to be a part of mine. I don't know what the future holds for us but for today, I am happy. I am blessed.

allnewsue: I'm just sick. My heart is breaking. I am so sad about this tragedy in Boston. I pray for those who were affected, injured, those who lost loved ones. And I pray for the person or group who did this.
allnewsue: April is here already!? Oh but the warm weather is long overdue! Nice 60 degree day today.
allnewsue: Just had the real estate agent and "staging" lady over to give me pointers on getting ready to sell my house. The good news is I don't have to move any heavy furniture. The interesting news is I have to make it look like I don't have a cat here.
