What a Difference…

What a difference 17 days makes…. the weather went from 60’s to 80’s and 90’s so fast! Plus, added rain which makes it humid….

Its as if Texas followed us up here…. well TEXAS…. GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM!!!!!  You are not welcome here!  I miss the cooler, breezy weather.

It’s been very rainy here and I am so grateful that it hasn’t been too stormy.  God has protected us every time and I couldn’t be more thankful. I pray that he continues to watch over us and our loved ones, in keeping us safe from the elements and keeps us out of harms way.

On another note… In that 17 days since I last posted, my mother and I joined the gym and have been doing very well.  I’ve lost 5 so far and her 4.  We started doing water aerobics daily and a trainer once a week.  That has now changed to water aerobics daily and the trainer twice a week.  This is going to be grueling but I think and hope it will be well worth it.

One more change or addition is mom and I finally came up with a name for our upcoming business.  If I haven’t mentioned before, mom and I are starting a business for handmade home goods.  We will be making decorative pillows, blankets, bags, doggy goods, etc.  It took us months to come up with a good name that wasn’t taken and we decided on Opey’s Home.  Its a play on words; O P is Home (Overland Park.)  I really like it.  We then had a logo designed and cards ordered and now we are coming up with a product tag design, which I think we had a light bulb moment today.  Once we get those in order than we can get going with making the products.  This will be exciting!

I have come up with businesses in the past but they don’t go far…. this time I want to do it right.  I don’t want to just through a half done product out there.  I want to make sure it looks professional.  That takes time.  You have to come up with a name and all that goes with a business, front end and back end.  We need to be as organized as possible.

A lot has happened, good things and I only see things getting better.  Thanks to God!

So Happy To Be Here!!!

Well so here we are, coming up on the end of the month and I am so happy we moved here!  I am loving the weather!  In all of April and so far May we have had maybe 2 severe weather warnings, which I can handle. If I were still in Texas, I would have had a couple of heart attacks by now with all the crazy weather they have been having.

I have a huge fear of severe weather! Total anxiety attacks, passing out, loss of appetite, upset stomach, hot flashes, raising heartbeat.  The whole nine yards!  That’s one reason why I wanted out of Texas.  The atmosphere there is just crazy!  We were at a picinic this past weekend and it was perfect outside and I heard some people saying how humid and warm it was.  Hahaha, what!!!! If that was hot and humid then I am happy we are here!  It was nothing compared to the heat and humidity in Texas!

Most of April it’s been in the 60’s which is perfect for me and there is usually always a light breeze.  LOVES IT!!!!!! Minus the weather, there are so many nice people here!  I can’t tell you how many people have welcomed us to the area and told us how much we will love it here.  Its such a pleasant change compared to where we were at.  So many people before were rude and it was as if manners were non-excistant.

Our new place is so cute and the perfect size for us.  It’s quiet and the neighbors seem very nice.  There are a lot of children around, which is a good sign.  Hopefully by time we have kids, there will still be kids around here.  The drive to mom and dads is nice and its nice to be able to come over and do dinner whenever. I love it!  I can’t say so much for the doggies.  They are used to a backyard where they can freely run around.  Here we have communal backyard with no fences which means they have to be on leashes everytime we go out.  When we were at my parents they were still able run around so now that they have to get used to the leash and harness.  Its slow going but they will just have to get used to it.

In any case, I am so happy here!
