I started blogging years ago as a weight loss tool. I lost and gained a lot of weight over the years but more importantly I gained a lot of friends who still read my blog! Thru my 12 years of blogging, life has changed quite a bit for me! I'm now disabled, living with my parents and one of my adult sons and I'm now Nana to Cosette and Oliver, born 3 months apart. Life looks different for me now so I wanted my blog to look different. Welcome to the Nana Life.
My matched set of grandchildren - Oliver and Cosette
I'm Heather... and this is my world! Here's my cast of characters:
My boys are Ryan (31), Cody (27) and Austin (24) Cody is married to Marqueeand they are the parents ofOliver Joel, born on July 23, 2015.
Ryan is engaged to Sara
Austin is the father of Cosette Camilleborn on April 29, 2015.
A wise woman once told me that mothers of boys get their daughters when their sons are grown. That's been the case for me. I couldn't have raised better daughters than the girls my sons have chosen. My nieces are Tiffany, Elizabeth, Sarabeth, Jamieand Madeleine My nephews are Cory, Matthew, Caleb, Joshuaand Samuel and Finn My grand-nephew is Ethan James - aka E.J. and his brother, Adrian My brothers are Jim, Michael, Bryanand David Their significant others are Angie, Mechelle, Helenand Katherine. My parents are Mawmawand Pop I try not to embarass my family with TMI on here but it happens. I live in my parents' house outside of Helen, Georgia.
Cody lives in the house beside the house I grew up in 100 miles south of us.
Ryan lives near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
I have been married twice - once for 14 years, once for 14 months. I'm a great wife, I just don't pick great husbands. I'm in a loving relationship with a great guy... more about that later... I have chronic back pain due to degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, spondylolisthesis, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis.
I have fibromyalgia and an unspecified auto immune disease that causes symptoms similar to lupus (but isn't lupus). I have granulomas - scar tissue- in my lungs that causes frequent bronchitis. I have high blood pressure and tachycardia. I have nerve damage in my lower legs. Post ablation syndrome led to a hysterectomy in 2016. I'm much too young to feel this dang old. God has a plan. That's what this blog is all about. P.S. I have cats.
I am Scarlett O'Hara on the day of the 12 Oaks Barbeque holding on to the bedpost while Mammy tightens her corset.
I am Scarlett O'Hara as she flees Atlanta for Tara... facing fire and hardship and uncertainty and fear.
I am Scarlett O'Hara as she puts her hopes all in one man... and finds that Rhett disappoints her and leaves her brokenhearted.
I am Scarlett O'Hara as she lays weeping on the steps and decides to go home. Tomorrow is another day.
