The Move & Other Stuff

The move!  It is done! 
Mom is now living next door in a mountain of boxes but she is here! We both love it.
Saturday the big items were moved and the rain held off so we were so thankful.
Instead of photos of lots and lots of boxes I'm throwing in some photos of the flowers in Mom's front planting bed!
Sara & Blake worked really hard and got it done.
Sara is still working (today is her last day before summer break) and so is Blake so they had to finish around their work schedules
My main job during the move was babysitting!
Lots of playing and some TV time!
Tiger helped on Saturday and earned some money
He is saving up to buy this kayak
He has had some 'matching funds',
 so he is getting close to his goal. 

Meanwhile this little gal kept me on my toes!
A whirlwind of energy she almost never stops
I was quick with the camera on this one before she took off again.  Once Scout started walking she has not stopped!
Today we will go do a final walk through of the apt and turn in the keys.  A trip to WalMart for some supplies and back home to the boxes! 
Today is also a special day
This girl is coming home to Georgia for a few days!  I haven't seen her since December and her Mama misses her so much!! 
If you don't hear from me for awhile, just know I'm unpacking boxes! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Glad to hear your Mom is there! Enjoy your family time with settling her in and spending sweet time with your daughter. Boxes can wait. I am tired just looking at your grands, don't know how you keep up, lol. Has Mr. Toes gone back home?

Colorful hair! My "grandkiddies" think I should dye my hair pink, but at 63 (turning 64 in July-WaaaH!) I do not think it would go over well. My friends and family would think I had gone off my rocker! Glad to hear the move has gone well so far! May the unpacking and organizing begin!!

Lynn said...

Well aren't you the lucky lady - mama next door, precious grands and now Ashleigh is visiting. Have fun!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I'm glad the move is over and your Mom is next door. You can take your time with the unpacking though I'm sure you'll have it done in no time. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!

Melanie said...

I'm glad to hear the move with your mom went well. How wonderful that she will live next door! Your grandkids are so cute - I love seeing photos of them. What a great idea to have a young child earn money to buy something he really wants. I think that way they'll appreciate it more. How wonderful that your daughter will be visiting soon, too! Have a wonderful weekend. :-)

Ho wonderful to have your mom next door. We just moved right next door to my youngest daughter's house and it is so nice especially when it comes to cooking. We just alternate and take turns so we don't have to cook everyday....Christine

Oh, I know you're so happy, even if it means unpacking boxes, to have your mom living next door. Much love, my friend, XOXO

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

This is such a happy post....busy, but wonderful busy!

Pondside said...

By now you must be feeling that you can see the end of boxes, Linda. What a big job! The pay off is having your mother close enough so that you can be a help to her and not worry too much about her. Those little ones.....adorable! They will keep you young!

Jann Olson said...

So happy the move went well Linda! I'm sure your mom is loving the pretty flowers. Those little ones do wear us out. I'm going to have 3 of my grandsons, 1, 3. and 6 for a day or two next week. Wish me luck. lol! Fun to have your daughter coming home.
hugs,
Jann
