Since last post of January 19, 2011

It all started here. . .






. . . my mother Jeannette Saunders-Schossow died after her second bout with an aggressive form of uterine cancer in two years. She was 84 years old. This is a picture of she, myself, and Deanta. It was the last time she was to be sitting outside in the sunshine, alive. I'll talk more about her later.



I bought a house. Great location. Nice neighborhood. Not much of a house (nice little house next door came with it) on 2.2 acres of land. But. . . a nice little spot underneath the heavens.





Then I tore the second story off . . .

...tore everything else off...

...put a new second story on, and then tore the kitchen off.

And rebuilt it.


I'm trying to finish it up before the snow flies. I'm starting a new job in a month as a CNA. I'm trying to keep from being buried by a pharmacology course which I seem to have to put about 6 hours-a-day study time into. I'm out of horseshoeing. I'm also presently having the long-time bookkeeping methods of my farrier business tested with an audit from the WI Department of Revenue, and my bookkeeping is not faring very well. I am looking forward to not being as busy in about 2 months; after which time I am looking forward to adding on to The Useful Record.

I'm also going to add a lot more house pictures to this post.

WOW! Good for you Todd! What great work! You are one busy man--going to school, building, music, bible study,---you are one busy guy! The house looks beautiful!

Hi Carol, yes, I was blessed with being able to custom rebuild this place. It feels good to be done renting.

As of yesterday I made it through a very tough pharmacology course and now hopefully have another week or two to finish a few more things in the house before I have to start working full-time as a CNA at the Bell Tower in Merrill. We'll be moving in in two and a half weeks.

I hope you all are well. I hope your minis are enjoying their new home.
