......its a bit of laziness
or .......a let down after the A/Z challenge
........or this or that
but I have brilliant blog posts written in my head
but I just don't seem to have the motivation to write them down or to put pictures up regarding them
Life is going on and we are settling in. We listed projects in priority to get them done and the last major one starts tomorrow. Then I'll probably do a before and after post with what we've been working on and include pictures of the house.
I'm all unpacked, but then I didn't have much to unpack. Hubby has one more box to unpack in his music room and then he'll start organizing it and probably get rid of at least 30% of stuff he's been hauling around unopened for the past 15 months.
Garage still needs to be unpacked but that's not my domain :)
Highlight of my week was reconnecting with an old friend (not in age on her part) from Montana. There may be one or two of you still reading my blog that remember my stories about her, but I got to see her second baby born and then a few years later she came to visit us while we were still in Southern California and then a few years later I wrote when she was pregnant and lost her daughter at 26 weeks gestation.
We lost touch for a bit because of her busyness now raising five boys and the distance that separated us. We continued as Facebook friends. She messaged me a month ago saying she and her hubby would be in town for a few days for business and a little mini getaway and wanted to get together for dinner. We met up last Saturday night at the same restaurant we held son's and daughter in law's wedding dinner back in October. Son couldn't make it because of his work schedule but daughter in law, the baby, and her daughter came along with us. Walking into the restaurant, a sob escaped me. Ten years later since we were so close and so many tragedies and heartaches since then, but seeing her lovely smile.......precious........ We had a lovely dinner and catch up time and then she and her hubby came over the next day for dinner when son could also be there. They have some tough decisions to make over the next few months; I am sure they will make the best ones seeking God's guidance.
It was very neat to see her.......
and just maybe one day soon I'll be motivated to actually put down on paper the posts running through my head....
until then, enjoy the weekend!
