My oh my what a week this has been! It can be said with all sincerity that our family NEVER has a dull moment! This week proved to make that statement true without a shadow of a doubt!
The month of April reared it's
April 25 was met with anticipation of a big hug from that boy of mine! To see his beautiful smile step off that plane made my heart do more leaps than the day he was born. After all it has been six months since he left American soil! Here he is meeting his niece for the first time!
The whole reason he came home was
With the wedding done we were on to the next thing....told ya we never have a dull moment! My parents have tried and talked about selling their house for years. A few months ago they bit the bullet as they placed a sign in the yard.Well wouldn't you know this same week a contract and an early May closing date would be set. That's great, except they have lived in this house for over 30 years! So thankful they have been purging the house for the last several months in anticipation of this transition. But much was still to be done. They were exhausted! She has been a good ole girl! I have seen her transform over the years with many remodel projects. It's at this house I fell in love with my husband....he was doing a house remodel project for my parents! I remember the first time going to see her. The family we purchased her from had boys and the kitchen smelled of spaghetti ! I remember how excited my sisters and I were that we would finally have our own bedrooms! How this would be our first home after the death of our dad just a year prior. New beginnings and new memories would be made. Oh the memories we have made! A new dad and new siblings. Good times and some really bad ones. We made this special house our home...this home became part of our family. With exhausted parents, I took over making sure the last bit of things were out and this shell of a home was clean and ready for the next family to make memories. I must say we did a pretty good job too! I hope they love it there as much as we do! As much as we did! See ya old gal!
With all that has gone on this past week.... the days flew bye! Last night after our friend's son's beautiful wedding I realized it was time for that boy of mine to leave. Sometimes reality slaps you in the face. So this morning at 5am I was awakened to "Mom I'm leaving!" I think it's time for me to hibernate....it's been a very full blessed week!
