PostSubject: So how YOU doing?   Sun Mar 18, 2012 1:06 pm

Moved to Tucson 2+ weeks ago, I love it.
Family is the same but older. Dad has more good days than bad, still see that spark in his eyes, we laugh quite a bit. I like it when he laughs at stuff I say. Mom says she sees a difference since I've arrived. I'm glad I'm not one of the ones that hate their family, I'm lucky.

Got a job working as a maintenance dude at the mobile home park where my parents, grandmother, sister and I temporarily, live. (Holy crapola!)
The park manager says she has received nothing but compliments about my work, which is strange because I have no idea what in the hell I'm doing half the time. Wing it!!
I got the internet now. Wireless!! I can watch Little House anywhere in the house.
Last week my sister and I went out to play Hold 'em poker. She's in a poker league and is one of the best players in Tucson. I won the first tourney of the night and she won the second!!!

Bought a truck at a public auction, did a tune up, it's still a pile of crap but it gets me to the places that I need to go.
93 year old Grandma Mary asked me last week if I think I'm an alcoholic. I admitted I've been for 20 years. She seemed shocked by that revelation.
Granny moved into mom and dads place last year but keeps her own home here on the property. I'm living there for now. I just counted, there are 27 Christian depictions/images/prayers on her refrigerator. I'm not lying.
There are well over 100 pictures of Kenny Loggins in this home. Maybe it's supposed to be Jesus, but darn, the likeness is uncanny.
Why does my skin feel like it's on fire?

All in all, I made the right move.

So how YOU doing?

Glad you got moved and are settling in.......2 years ago today, I arrived here in Missouri and I still feel like I'm settling in....could be because I left my 3 boys down in Arkansas and miss them terribly......Hope things continue to go well for you..... Thumbsup

Hi Joe, welcome back. Glad to hear you're getting settled in. I don't think I'd be able to live in such close proximity to all of my family as you are. Good luck! Smile

Kenny Loggins / Jesus ? hmmm I have never heard that. Maybe she has better glasses than I do.

Glad the move has been a positive one. Little House in every room can make all things good. See ya !

Welcome back to the prairie, Joe! I'm glad that you're happy in the move you've made, and that your Dad has more good days than bad. Congratulations on finding work so quickly! In this economy, that's a huge blessing! All the best to you!

Happy to have you again, Joe. Dometimes, moving is a great thing. It pushes us to change radically our life when things are not going so good...

I'm also glad reading that ouy father is better than you were especting he will be. Smile
