3rd Quarter 2019

Welcome to the 3rd Quarter of the Women’s Journal. It has been a very busy spring, now full force in to summer. My great granddaughter Layla just turned a year old and is as beautiful and smart as we all expected her to be. We have a brand-new granddaughter coming in July. Those that know my family know how surprised and happy we all are that Heather, my youngest daughter, is finally going to be a mom. We are all praying that she will be healthy, and of course we are pretty sure she will be as beautiful as her mom. So now I will have grandchildren from the ages of 1-28 years of age; it is like starting over again with my 3 little ones (Cooper 3½; Layla 1; and Simone not yet born).

I started off this spring wanting to do some special things around my home, but as soon as I started doing things that I really didn’t need to do, everything else started to break. It made me start thinking about how we should all have a special fund that we put money in each month for replacing things. Heat pump about 10 years; Furnace 12-15 (mine only made it 10 years). Of the major appliances in a home, gas ranges have the longest life expectancy: 15 years. Dryers and refrigerators last about 13 years. Some of the appliances with the shortest lifespan are: compactors (6 years), dishwashers (9 years) and microwave ovens (9 years). I guess I better get saving.
