Off We Go…


Just want to let all my fans know (which is 0 at the moment lol) that we are moving to a new house this weekend, so my posting time is very limited unfortunately.  I still have some packing to do and so forth.

I’ve almost convinced myself that I’m a aspiring hoarder, not really, but when I go through things, it’s like why do I keep this stuff, it just blows my mind.  So for this move I have literally gotten rid of a ton of stuff, actually donated it to the Disabled Vets.  My problem is when I’m out at flea markets or garage sales I look at something and go…”I can use this”, and then I never do, so I’m pretty much done with that.  Unless I find something I just can’t live without and can find a legitimate reason for it’s use, but from here on out it has to be something really special that I just absolutely can’t live without, not even sure at this point if there is such an item…

I’ve pretty much decided that my next move is going to be in with my kids (oh dear) or a nursing home, I so dislike moving.  It’s not that I have to do the actual moving, but I have to sort things out, then pack it all and when I say “all” I mean just that, for some reason I seem to be the only one that knows how to pack a box.

I’m actually pretty good at packing boxes though, we moved a lot when I was a kid, seems like my Mom moved every time the house got dirty.  Personally I’d rather stay in one place and clean as opposed to moving.  I think, however, moving is harder on my dogs than it is on me, I don’t have to sniff around the yard for an hour to find a potty spot that’s all mine.  They will be very clingy for a few days, but they already are sort of, they follow me everywhere.  My favorite time of the day is Doggy Nap Time, for two hours in the afternoon I am totally left alone, of course I don’t dare move out of my chair because one of them takes her nap beside me in the chair, but that’s ok, I’m thinking that’s going to be good blogging time.

Of course when I find out I’m moving I look for the closest coffee shops in the area, oh and Chinese Food places, my two vices, I’m in luck, there are several in the area I’m moving to, I’m so excited.

So, I will try and get back to blogging as soon as I can and of course if I find some time before the move I will post.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.


About Beyond The Stones

Good Morning,

I have just created my new blog “Beyond The Stones” so I thought I would elaborate a bit on the title of this blog. I seem to be a habitual kidney stone maker, not by choice but because that’s just what my body wants to do. Many people including myself compare kidney stones to child birth, with that being said, I think I have about 30 or so fictitious children. Thankfully in real life I only have a few….children that is. I’ve been through many many tests to find the cause of this problem, but no one can seem to come up with anything other than it’s in my gene’s….I’d say it’s time for a new pair. I will post periodically about this subject in the hopes that maybe someone else goes through the same thing and we can compare notes. This subject is NOT going to be the main focus of this blog.

I have many things in my life that I am passionate about and enjoy, and I try very hard not to let this condition dictate to me what I’m going to do. Although, having said that, sometimes it’s unavoidable, I never know when one is going to strike and how that particular one is going to make me feel. I almost always have to have surgery to remove them which usually changes my life for about a week afterwards.

This Blog will have many subjects, some of which will be, but not limited to….Fun, Facts, Food, Family and many many more, just depends on what I’m passionate about when I wake up that day.

So, Welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy your stay and find my blog interesting and fun. I am open to suggestions and subjects, so if you have something you’d like to read about that I’m not covering, just let me know.

I hope you all have a blessed day.



  1. Hi Jennifer!
    You have a fan! 😀
    Happy moving!


  2. Can I just say what a reduction to seek out somebody who really is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the way to convey an issue to mild and make it important. Extra people have to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant consider youre not more in style since you undoubtedly have the gift. Posted by
