Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.
Normally the Fly On The Wall post would be snippets of funny or unusual things that have happened around the house for the last month. For me, the last month is, in many ways one big blur. There have been lots of funnies but darn if I can think of a way to put them down in words. You had to be there. Here are the highlights:
- Loading a moving truck and saying goodbye to all our friends in Florida.
- Driving IN THE RAIN for 4 days to get to NC.
- Driving a truck that refused to go above 60 miles per hour………Didn’t matter how hard I pushed on that gas pedal.
- Driving the above mentioned truck through the rain in downtown Raleigh on a Monday afternoon. Monday afternoon traffic is almost as bad as Friday night rush hour. Trust me on this one.
- Just about the time we decided that the sun never shone in NC, we were blessed with a day of sun and warmth.
- Seeing the house that will be our new home for the first time, covered in sawdust and not a single wall painted. None, as in ZERO
- Daughter and I working like fools to get the house ready to move into.
- Loving every minute of the time spent with my daughter as we worked and laughed and shared memories of other moves. I didn’t even get mad when she tried to paint my hair……
- Realizing that yes, Hubs does realize how hard this is on me, as badly as I wanted to be in NC with the kids. That leaving FL was hard, not just for him, but me also.
- Going with SIL to pick up oldest Grand and seeing him standing there, the smile on his face when he saw me, the fact he didn’t care his friends were watching and hugging me hard.
- Seeing my granddaughter in all her young long-legged beauty play volleyball.
- Seeing the youngest play football.
- Seeing the oldest play football. Especially since we didn’t know if he would even be able to walk the first year of of his life.
- Meeting new neighbors as they help you drag empty boxes to the curb.
- Coming down with Bronchitis.
- Getting lost on the way to my daughters and ending up in another state. ( Don’t ask).
- Daughter calling you and saying “Mom, I’m on my way to —- and won’t be back in time to pick up the kids from school. Can you do it?” Being able to say YES.
- Not getting lost on the way to the school.
- Getting one room put together in the house, in spite of being sick, so the house begins to feel like home.
- Realizing how blessed we are to be able to start a new chapter and be around the family we love.
