Home again

We all made it home in one piece. There were no arrests, as some of you I am sure were expecting. I hate to disappoint but we really got into no trouble at all. Not I am not saying Tom would have approved of every thing we did but as I have said before what he doesn’t know won’t hurt me!

I went swimming with my swimsuit on! I drank as much as I liked with a designated driver when necessary. I cussed when I felt like it. I ate junk food by the ton – twice we went for ice cream after midnight. But honestly that was as wild as we got.

I had a wonderful time but getting back to Tom was the best part. He and Steve supervised the moving of much of the furniture we decided to bring from the other house. And Tom has a wonderful compromise for the other house. He has arranged to lease it on a long term basis to the company he used to work for. They often bring people in for several weeks at the time and they will be using the house rather than a hotel. They have also agreed to hire a couple who used to help us with the cleaning and some maintenance. They will be living in the ‘mother-in-law’ suite in the basement. They are wonderful people and I am thrilled that they will be caring for our house.

We are busy with a few more moving details but I feel we will be settled soon. We are leasing the house with the furniture we will not need here but there are still items I am unsure what I want to do with. But it is time to make those final decisions. I want to get them done so I can relax and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Great way to handle your old house. I have moved tons of times. As fun as it is to be in something new, it is also hard to part with old memories. Sounds like you are enjoying the best of both worlds. ii am thrilled that you had a great time- good for you. Bet Tom missed you tons.
Have a great day, Ciao

Marie,
I love to travel and I love to do and see new things but coming back to Tom and seeing him come toward me for a bear hug- well nothing is better than that!

David,
You are so sweet! You always make me feel so special.

Mthc,
We had a great time but we really did not go crazy. Do you suppose I am growing up??

Paul,
What can I say the pure angel in me just floated to the top!

Lilly,
I could tell you all about the bar hopping but it was nothing wild.

Eva,
LOL! I had butter pecan! Is that wild enough for you?

Carye,
This was great. That is why I hate to move - the moving!! I don't mind organizing things once they get here. As long as all I have to do is point!

I Gal,
I do love this way. I don't feel like the old house is gone but it is going to be used! And should we decide we want to stay there we can.

I hope you are feeling better!
