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.
