Home and fine

I just spent the last 2 weeks in Virginia helping mydaughter welcome her new son. Isaac Church Emerson Montalbano made his appearance on January 18th, 2011. He arrived at 12:42pm via C-section. He is absolutely beautiful, strong, and stole this gramma’s heart! Mama didn’t do too shabby either. She worked through the pain and blisters and learned to nurse her son. she did so well, I got to go home early. It was a birthday present from Nick and Kay to G that I got to go home.

Hubby and I are on the upswing. Still no job, but we now have food stamps and found Angelfood Ministries. My resume is front and formost for a job tho with 171 applicants I’m not holding my breath. I’m planning the spring garden and getting ready to tackle my etsy site. I will try to piecemeal whatever money I can so we can make it. We are in a pretty deep hole right now – not sure how we’ll dig ourselves out, but something has to either open up or we’ll have to accept the change.

After the 2 weeks and very diligent effort, I’d venture to say, if asked, Steve would say “Mandy who?” No longer even a point of contention.  I’ll never forget the eye opening, but in a good way…by the way, I’m now a red head (again). lol And a steady trivia player and have even let football sneak it’s way into my vocabulary.


About Morning Knits

I believe in and practice positive living. I love YARN, music, bird watching, history, gemstones, and gardening. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its bounds. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a Kingdom focused non denominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and and a rescued kitten. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, and obesity. That last is hard to say. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow go.
