Chapters...

it has been a crazy week....
I've been feeling like this boat...
stuck in the grass...so wanting to be back in the water...
trying hard to get to the water...
seeing the water....
but just not quite getting there....
 

old chapters are closing....
my FIL's house is sold...
moving the last of the items out...
settling the affairs...
a tough week for Hubby...
even though he doesn't say it out loud....
 

new chapters are starting....
Hotrod may be going to a Mother's Day out one or two days
this fall...Oma's not ready for this....
 

My daughter is excited...decorating her new place...
My DIL is excited....decorating there new home...
My Mom and I pulling out old treasures...
passing them on to the girls....
some times it pays to be a horder collector....
I've made a promise to myself....
to make time..no matter what...
to do things with family and friends...
not put it off...not to make excuses..
you know the ones....my house is a mess...
I need to loose a few pounds....I don't have anything to wear...
I'm tired....maybe next week....
what should we do? when?
I made a date with my SIL and 2 nieces...
I made a date with my Mom...DIL and daughter...
 
New Chapters...Old Chapters....

I'm keeping in touch with old friends...
mostly through Facebook...
my goal is to actually have Face time with them...
doesn't have to be a major even...
just a little time together...
Yesterday was one of our sweet dance girls 20th birthday...
how can she be 20 already....a Jr in college this year...
times a wasting...time to make the most of the time we have....
which reminds me....
I need to have a date with her...
before she goes back to school....

((HUGS)) Change is never easy. I make promises often but seldom follow through but your inspiring me to follow your lead. I wish you all the best. Awesome photos!

you are going through lots of changes and this not easy.. you are doing the right thing making dates with the ones you want to see, that is what i need to do. once the date is set then i have to do it and can't back out.. have fun on all your play dates

sounds like you're prioritizing, which is good.

You are taking all of the right steps Deb -- the first one is the hardest, then it just becomes part of your life. Enjoy your time with family. xo

Times, they are a changin'. Whether for good or bad, we're stuck with it.
Mother's day out!? Didn't know it still existed. I loved taking the kids to that when they were little. I really needed a day every now and then.

Life is always a constant change.

Time sure flies!!! I went to the home I grew up in, thinking I would be saying good-bye, but it had already changed so much that I did not even recognize it! I have not seen that much floor in the basement since I was three years old, and it just made me sad...

New chapters are hard! But soon they will be old chapters so we just have to walk through each one.....
