TEXAS BOUND 2ND OF JULY!!!!

Well first of all let me tell you all it has been a long time since I have been here and I have missed you.  There is no excuse to why I have been gone so long other than at the beginning I was helping my ex take care of his Mom then there was other factors to keep me away.  But now that I have completed what I needed to do for my ex and his Mom and my daughter doesn’t need me I’m going back home to Texas.  I will be going back to Texas by the 2nd of July it should be an interesting trip and I will keep you guys up to date on the status as I travel the roadway.

It shall be fun to be back in the land of hot, hot and hotter.  I know most of you are asking me what made me decide to go back to Texas in one of the hottest months of the summer knowing that it’s only going to get hotter well it’s really no different staying here in the summer we get in the triple digits here too however it isn’t quite as hot here really it is just really humid.  In Texas the humidity where I live anyway is about 13 to 22 percent most days so if the temperature is 105 degree with the heat index it might be up to about 108 degree where as here in Florida if the temperature is 100 then with the humidity being 89 or 95 percent it would be the same temperature as it would be in Texas with the heat index of 108 degree but you would be dripping wet.  There lies the difference.

There was a lot of changes in Florida when I got back this time the last time I was here was when Carl passed away in 2012 I came and stayed with Art and Mom for a month to get my head together and deal with the loss of my husband plus some other things too.  I couldn’t believe all the things they had build up on the beach side of the road all the hotels, apartment buildings and how tall they were.  They almost blocked all of the view of the beach and the water.   I mean really it was almost building to building no way could you see the beach or water driving your car from road when I was stationed here in the late 70’s there was opened spaces you could park your car and walk across the street and go walk on the beach or just sit in the parking lot wherever you were and watch the water hit the beach.  You can’t do that now.  It is so sad.  It is like a lost of era and a different way of life maybe a simpler time.  But I’m sure when I get back to Texas somethings have changed there too.

I just wanted to let y’all know that I will start back to writing again now I know that I have missed doing it and I have probably lost a lot of my followers because I haven’t been here but I promise I will start being here more often I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I decided to write and let you know that I was going back to Texas and back to my roots to get my act together again.

Thank you once again for reading and letting me get things down.  I really have missed you guys a lot.  God bless you and I hope you all have a beautiful Summer.

❤ Kat

 

Message of Gratitude: Facebook Reconnects Patient and Nurse

St. Joe's Health Blog

In her nearly 20 years as a nurse with St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, Michelle Amstutz has seen her fair share of heartaches and triumphs, and lots of tears and smiles in between. Now a labor and delivery nurse, Michelle says she tries to make each day at the hospital as meaningful as her first.

“You do make an impact every day. As you go out of that door you’re thinking about, ‘Am I going to make a difference?’ You might not know it today, but you do.”

Her soothing voice and gentle demeanor were well-suited for a video Saint Joseph Mercy Health System produced in May to celebrate Nurses’ Week. She was among more than a dozen nurses and was only on screen for four seconds, but it was long enough for someone to take notice.

Shortly after that video was posted, Michelle received this message in her Facebook…

TAKING A BRIEF HOLIDAY

Yesterday I left my house to come from Lynn Haven to Chipley to spend a couple of days with my daughter and my son in law.  It was a short ride of about one hour because traffic was slow.  We did a stop for gas and refreshments of course I believe any trip regardless of length one must stop along the way for something to drink.

This is the first time I have been to my daughter’s house since coming back to Florida 6 months ago.  She lives in a nice place and she and my son in law have found a nice neighborhood to live in.  It has some old houses on the block with a few wraparound porches on them.  I love the old porches don’t you?

Tomorrow we will be going to a soccer game and then taking pictures of the little girl who doesn’t know she is to be queen in some form for the league.  That is an honor for her and she will be very excited.

I will be taking pictures of the wraparound porch on my favorite house here in Chipley and we will be on the beach tomorrow for the game so I will have some pictures of the water which I will be posting also.  Until I’m back tomorrow I will be wishes each and everyone of you a wonderful day and weekend.

 

 

LIFE CONTINUES

Hello fellow bloggers, family and friends: Before I start my blog today I want to address to things first if you are not registered to vote please go out and do so.  This election is all about finding the right person for the job.  Who has the best qualities to be President of the United States of America and which of them have what it takes to stay in there and doing what is best for the American people.

Second is that I want to send my prayers and thoughts to all of the friends, family and fellow bloggers of the wonderful, thoughtful Paul Curran he was a very great person and he will be truly missed.

I have always like writing this blog since I started on wordpress because it helps me to keep up with my family, friends and of course other bloggers and let them all know what is happening in my life and to let them know that things are good or bad or whatever the case might be however I have been spending a lot of time on my other side and trying to get things done in my life outside of cyberspace.  (hey it can happen)

Anyway we had the holiday at the beginning of October, it is a month of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the run for the World Series and autumn has started so finally the temperatures are starting to cool off slowly for us.   Here in Florida today so far has been beautiful the low when I got up was 61 degrees out and right now it is almost 11AM and it’s about 72 degree with a very nice light breezes.  We have all the windows open.  It is really comfortable.   Today is another holiday Columbus Day not the original of course since that is the 12 October.  Last but not least not this Saturday but the following one is my birthday then we have Halloween then we will be into November and the election is that close wow where as the time got to.

I hope your team is still doing good in the run for the bragging rights to the World Series. I have been much happier lately I think it might be the new man in my life he is awesome, very good to me and he treats me like I’m his whole world.  It is a great feeling.

THANKFUL

Hello fellow bloggers, family and friends:  I want to thank those of you who stopped by and read my note I wrote to my Mom on Sunday.  It was my way of honoring her and to let her know that she is missed and loved every day that she has been gone here on earth sixteen very long years.

I appreciate all your support through the years that I have been writing my blog.  I started this blogging site as a way to cheer for my beloved Red Sox from Boston MA  but then somehow or the other it somehow got turned into where all my family and friends could keep up with what was going in the lives of the “Kellys” and “Heinzelmans”  clans.  I have lots of people reading the goings on of the clans to see whats what and why.

Again I want to thank you for stopping by to check out what’s new and to read my latest blog note to Mom.  Also thank all of you who left a comment or even just a word of advice or helpful hints.

Y’all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your wonderful comments throughout the years I have been on this site and now on Rambling Thoughts.  Love you all Kat
