Packing Up More Stuff

This coming week the kids and I will have to pack more stuff from the house. One of the guitars we have to make sure we pack up is an acoustic guitar, which I think is the best acoustic guitar for country music, but I'm certainly no expert.

I swear, I have no idea where to go with everything. I'm trying to put a house full of stuff into a small, small, place. It's truly been a nightmare for me :(

Me and My "Little" Girl

Last year Olivia went to a Halloween dance as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love the picture of her and me :)

Yes, It's Me

I'm's been a long time. I kinda lost my drive there for a while. I'm about to go through a divorce. We've been officially separated since March 2015 - that's when I moved out. He moved at the end of July. Our house is just sitting there, waiting for the bank to take it. He hasn't paid the mortgage in months and is abut $8,000 behind.

I've been moving my own things out, slowly. My kids don't have anywhere to go with a lot of their stuff. Dante doesn't care about most of his stuff, but he made sure to take the keyboard he had over there. It's a melodica and he is NOT about to part with it.

I'll be back here more often, with updates and pictures of my 'new' life. Stay tuned...

Olivia's Birthday Weekend

Olivia's 11th birthday isn't until March 27th, but we celebrated this pat weekend. She got two very kick-ass presents! The first was from CJ - he had Aaron VanWhy, who creates guitar inlays, add this custom inlay to her Martin Guitar:

Then I figured I had to 'one up' CJ so I had my friend Jennifer of Jenny BakesAlot, make this Jack Skellington and Zero birthday cake:

How awesome? :D

We Rode, Now We Freeze

This past weekend we actually got to ride BOTH days! Hey, it was only in the high 40's but we've had enough of this cold snowy weather. CJ had to actually 'walk' the bike down our alley because of all the snow, but once we got to the side road we were good to go!

Yes this is our Harley :)

And, snow is on the way - today in fact...we were SO CLOSE to spring...*sigh*

Her New Martin Guitar

Since my husband works at C.F. Martin, he seems to collect guitars - more than he ever did. Now, my daughter has an electric guitar and was talking about how she'd love us to buy her the hammond sk1 at guitar center, which is a store I try to avoid, because there is always money spent! That is, until CJ came home with another acoustic :)

She is loving this one - more than her electric guitar. I will have to get some video of her playing it.
