The Bear is back and the adventures of Thanksgiving cooking...

Sorry about not posting much. I have been busy getting my mental health in order. Been waiting and waiting and finnaly managed to set up a weekly schedule to see a therapist. So far I cant tell if its working or not but the dr. Seems to think so. Lol...Days tend to blend into each other and I tend to lose track of time. Witch has me conserned. Just recently my family noticed that I have a bit of trouble hearing people on certain tones when they talk. If its not one thing after another on top of the pile of heath issues ive aquired from the accident I sustained.

Hope all of you have had a great Thanksgiving mine was quiet until there was a misshap that happpend In the kitchen. So let me quickly lay out the story.

I was in charge of cooking the turkey this year. So I decied to try and slow cook it this year. I started way ahead and satarted early to give me a 12 hour target cook time. So 3/4 into cooking some of the juces managed to drip out of the pan and get to the bottom of the oven...yea once that happened, if you dont know before reading this you will now be warned.  The fat from the juices started to burn and smoke out the house. Yup...I had to get the turkey out out of the oven and finish it off on the bbq grill I had in the back yard, air out the house, let the oven cool down, clean said oven, and prep it for working order again. With all that said and done with I was 1/2 hour off of my finished prep time I set for myself. Hope yours has been spent well with the loved ones in your life.  Till next time and hopefully sooner rather than later.

The Madhatter is back!

Things have finally started to settle down and for that I am thankful. The last year or so has been pretty eventful and full of lots of ups and downs. But I made it through it all. I am excited to finally be back where I can post more often. Maybe I will finally catch everyone up on things in the world of The Madhatter and The Bear. I think I spotted The White Rabbit hopping around somewhere last night.  

   Back in August we finally made the move from Florida back to Oklahoma. I must say that it is good to be back home.  I have enjoyed being back in the same town as my Mama and Daddy.  I am slowly making the new house "mine". It is going to take at best, a year to decorate it just the way I want it. For now though, I am happy to take it slow and get it just right.  For the first time in 4 years, I got to see the seasons change. I forgot how much I missed it. 

  Honestly, I don't even know where to really start when it comes to catching you up on everything that happened. I celebrated my 39th birthday back in October. It was awesome to be able to spend it with my family. I witnessed my nephew's birth just days prior to that on October 2nd. It was a wonderful surprise birthday gift for sure. He is such a wonderful baby. I will have to upload some pictures from his birth. I am still on cloud nine about being the first person he saw as he was being born. I got to hold him for the first 4 hours of his life while his mama got some much needed sleep. I get to do baby duty as often as I want.  Also in October, my daughter B got married! Oh my word she was a vision of beauty in her wedding dress. I will definitely ask her if I can post some pictures from her wedding. She was stunning. 

I am still working on a long long update that I will post once it is done. Until then, I love you all to the moon and back.

I know, I know. It has been quite some time since myself or Bear have written anything. I had an issue with my internet back in June and then I got wrapped up in packing and selling the house. We moved to Oklahoma and have finally gotten settle in. I will definitely post a longer message later this evening.
