Catching Up

Those two weeks home just flew by! 
I enjoyed it so much. 
I had family time and some special Tiger time!
Tiger loves trains so much and we bought some new track to keep at Grandma's
I also bought some little trains to keep at my house
We are going to have fun this summer!
We had a fun meal at 'The White Tiger' where they serve yummy BBQ
We had a great afternoon at the park and Tiger played in the lake!  
He will start swim lessons in July!
Eating Ice Cream Sandwiches
Spent lots of time loving on this guy!
He is home and being taken care of by my sweet neighbor Donna while I make the final move with Mom!

So Yes....
I'm back in Texas!

This week is final packing and loading the moving pod.  Next Saturday will be the moving sale and then final emptying of the house and cleaning it.
So hopefully Mom, Sam the Cat and I will be on the road back to Georgia by June 11th.
Somewhere in there *June 9th* I'll celebrate my 64th birthday! 
 Whew!  I'm feeling every year of it!

Thank you all for hanging in here with me during this very stressful time in my life.  I will be so thankful to have my Mom close to me in GA and to get back to my regular life.  Hopefully I'll be back to blogging soon! 

Wishing you all JOY!

Linda

Hi Linda! Oh, honey, you've got it going on haven't you? I know you must be exhausted but so glad you had this time to come home and spend with your family and little Tiger. He's a doll! You're almost done with your little mother's house and things. I do wish you well on the garage sale and hope you make some big big bucks! Be safe, sweet friend,
Shelia :)

It's going to be so nice to finally be back home for good and to have your mom with you. There's light at the end of the tunnel, you're almost there. Happy birthday wishes in advance.

Jojo said...

You are living life - enjoy! Your blog friends will all be here when you get back. Happy birthday and happy trails as you get things in order and travel back home. Hugs.

Happy Birthday in advance.
It won't be long now - know you are anxious for the move to be over.

Chatty Crone said...

Oh Linda - I know you will be so happy to have all your loved ones in one place!!!!!!!

Tiger looks like so much fun.

Happy birthday early.

Be careful on the road. You are almost home.

Pam Kessler said...

You need to take a few weeks when you get back and just put your feet up and relax! You deserve it. Have a Happy Birthday when it comes around!

Hi! You won't know what to do with all of your time once the move is done! It will be so great having this summer with Tiger! I know he is thrilled to have you so close!!

Take care.

I just realized that Tiger is going to be living near one of his grandmas and a great-grandma. My great grandparents lived into their late 90's, meaning I had them in my life until I was a young adult. We were very close and I've grown to realize over the years how special that was. I hope Tiger has the chance to make some special memories with your mother!

Take care of yourself as you go into this last phase. I'm sending good thoughts your way. And Happy early Birthday!

Vicky Hunt said...

Sound like you thoroughly enjoyed your two weeks at home. You squeezed in lots of fun and quality time with Tiger. You are on the downhill slope and hopefully these next couple weeks will fly by. Happy early birthday! Mine is coming up on the 5th. That day is our big waterslide party at school....busy but fun! Have a blessed weekend.

Hugs, Vicky

You're doing such a great job! That's great that you were home for a bit and got caught up with Tiger and your kitty! I hope all goes well with the final packing and the sale. I think it's wonderful what you're doing and now your mom will be close by and be able to see you and the other family members more often! Happy early Birthday wishes!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

A great time by the sound of it

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It sure has been a hard task to undertake but I know your Mom is proud of you and thankful for your help. You're on the home stretch now! And I know how you feel...I'm the same age! We just can't go as long and hard as we used to. Wishing you the very best couple of weeks! I'm rooting for you...and praying for you too Sis! Hugs, Diane

Wonderful pictures of Tiger!! I know you see the changes in him while you're away since they grow so fast at this age! Best of luck Linda!! You're such a good daughter!! God Speed!
AND Happy Birthday!! Keep on - keeping on!!

Linda, I am so glad that things are winding down for you and that you will be back home soon. I know what a relief it will be to have your mom nearby. I think about you often, my friend. xo Laura

Sarah said...

Linda, your two have made amazing progress. You are almost there! Glad you had a little down time back home. Happy Birthday to you! Safe travels back to GA.

Marigene said...

Linda, I can't believe how grown up Tiger is! I am sure you will be glad to have this chapter of your life over with and have most of your family nearby. This has been such an arduous task you have been faced with. Have a safe trip back home.

Susan said...

Oh Linda, so happy you got to spend precious family time. Soon, everything will be back to snuff and you will be sooooo happy.

Good luck with the final packing and moving. The best to your Mama, too. Lucky she has a daughter like y-o-u! Susan

Jill said...

Melanie said...

You have a lot on your plate right now! Glad you got in some Tiger time. :-)

Laurie Ritchey said...

Oh how big Tiger has grown! He's probably going to be begging to go to Grandmother's house all of the time. I know you are dealing with a lot of stress, moving your mother, but you're right, you'll feel so much better with her where you can help her when she needs help. Good luck with the packing and the sale. And yes, you need to save every scrap of ribbon and lace! laurie

Laurie Ritchey said...

Forgot to tell you to have a happy birthday! I'm a year older than you, and I know what you mean about feeling your age. laurie

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Good to see you post and catch us up on where you are in your adventure. Glad this is almost done for you and your Mom. Wish I could come to the sale. Do well! Happy early birthday!

Patti said...

Greetings, Linda, from a long-lost blog friend. As you probably know, I shut down my Fill My Cup with Beauty a couple years ago and have focused solely on my classic film blog. I grew weary of one-dimensional blogging, though, so I decided to step back from that blog and start a new home-centered one.

I saw you had commented on someone else's blog, and I thought, "OH, I know Linda." I just wanted to say hi and to reconnect.

I can't believe how big Tiger has gotten. The last I knew, he was pretty much a baby! They do have a way of growing up quickly, don't they? he is certainly adorable.

It's so hard, isn't it, seeing our parents age and decline. I'm glad she will be living near you. I'm sure that will bring her much comfort.

Blessings,
Patti (Magnolia Cottage)

Ivy and Elephants said...

Keep at it, you are almost there!
It's going to be so great for the whole family. Tiger is a joy!
Hugs,
Patti

Sending Prayers you way!! Blessings, Cindy

The very best of luck (and energy) during all this stressful time of getting HOME with your mama.
Love, bj

I know this has been a very tough couple of months but when you get your mom settled, it will be worth it! I think everything happens for a reason and your mom is going to be so happy in her new place, near the family. I need you to send me your address, I have a little something for your birthday!

You have "moved mountains" during your Mom's move. Hang in there. You'll be able to enjoy the results soon!!!

Marigene said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LINDA...and many more!

Susan said...

You are a perfect mover and I know this will go well. Our move comes in July. Good luck with everything, XOXO

BECKY said...

Oh, Linda....what a busy, busy woman you've been....for a LONG time! You definitely deserve a huge restful time when you finally get your mom all moved. That's a huge job...at ANY age! hee hee. Happy Birthday to you! You certainly do not look or act like your age!! ...Nope...you can't possibly be THAT old! :)
Big hugs....

Art and Sand said...

I have so many friends who have a June 9th birthday!

A belated HB to you.

Drive safely!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda and so glad to know you and your little mother have made it back home! I know you're thrilled. Take it easy and one more move to your little mother's apartment then you can say - whew! Glad this is winding down for you. Take care my friend.
You're always a sweetie,
Shelia :)

That Tiger is growing by leaps and bounds! Grandkids are the very best part of growing older, don't you think? I hope life settles down for you and you can pamper yourself a little for a change!
