The 2nd 24 hours have come and gone, it was an exhausting weekend, I was excited to go to work on Monday, just to rest. No, I am not an Air Traffic Controller. The weekend wasn’t only spent moving stuff, but I worked and had a friends 100th Birthday Party to go to.
Sunday morning, not too early, I headed to my parents house, to pack my car and their truck with boxes. Had some time to check out all the great things my mom has recently done, she made a cute new walk way in her yard, and stained the deck. She is an incredible woman, very creative and hard-working. And I have her help and my dad’s help in putting my house together. They are the best parents a girl can ask for.
Once the cars were packed to the brim, it was time to go get ready to attend a party honoring a lovely woman who is celebrating her 100th birthday. Can you imagine all the things she has seen and experienced over these past 100 years. This event was wonderful, when we walked in, she lit up. We got hugs and kisses, and she wanted to know where we have been, why we have not stopped by… definitely going to have to stop by more. She is a firecracker that one. Her birthday is today… so Happy Birthday Bessie!
Once we mingled at her party, we did have to get on the road to my house so we could get the cars unpacked. As we were unpacking, I noticed my neighbors in their backyard… so I decided to venture out and introduce myself to them. I met husband and wife, and girl, girl and boy… and their dog and cat… first impression, very nice respectful children and couple. A little while later, my neighbor across the street came to visit bringing me a welcome basket with lots of goodies.
Here is the basket both in the basket and laid out to see all the goodies, plus a cute basket. Thank you neighbor!!! 🙂
The rest of the afternoon was spent putting together an IKEA bookcase, and my dad started changing the locks. I didn’t realize how slow of a process this is. I have not spent the night in my house yet, that is coming soon, and I am looking forward to it. I am so thankful for my parents who have helped me with this move, I know if I didn’t have them and their support, I don’t know where I would be. A big I LOVE YOU to my Mom and Dad. This on a day that now two high school friends have lost their mothers on this day. I am so sorry that they have each lost a parent on this day, one, 10 years ago today, the other, her mother passed away today.
Who is most important to you in your life? Do you tell them you love them daily? Don’t let a day go by that you don’t tell them you don’t know when they will be taken from you.
Sounds exhausting. When you listed all the things you did during your busy day, I was reminded why it’s so hard to spend quality time with the people most important to me. Life just fills up with things we need to do.
It is crazy how quickly a day can go… and just how much we can pack into a day. My week has been exhausting, both physically and mentally. I work tomorrow and still have so much to do. I have no internet access at home yet… needless to say that is next on my list. Thanks again for reading and commenting. Don’t forget to at least tell the ones you love, you love them… even if you can’t spend quality time together.
Man, that gift basket is AWESOME! What a sweet neighbor! And Bessie, it’s the perfect name for a woman of 100 years, don’t you think? I mean, of COURSE her name is Bessie 🙂 Congratulations on your new home.
My neighbor is sweet…
Bessie is one of the coolest women I have known in my life… Thanks for reading and commenting. This move is crazy…it is a lot of work. Not enough time in the day and energy on my part. Will it ever be done?
