We fed everyone well - subways and donuts at noon time and five large assorted topping pizzas at 4:00. By 5:00 our home quieted down as folks left - we made our bed and organized and took a much needed rest. Saturday while the powerful snow storm raged on we unpacked and put our stuff out and hung pictures and wall decor - those precious items that are "us". Oh we are SO here! :-)
Sunday was another day of unpacking and getting rid of trash and empty boxes as well as shoveling out the ten inches of snow that arrived with us! Today, a few finishing touches and it is all done. Friends have been so kind by bringing over meals all prepared.
And tonight, since my guy returns to work after 10+ days off :-( my Sis and I are going to spend New Years Eve together - some appetizers and wine, left over lasagna and we have a big can of flavored popcorn to munch while we watch a movie together. Sisters - our Mom is SO happy we are close - and right next door to one another.
And our bungalow that was our Mom's place that she and my Dad paid for with their hard earned money is such a gift to us - my Mom used to say that Dad was still taking care of her when she had this place built since she used the money from the sale of their home they paid for and lived in together. It truly is all so bittersweet. And like I have said - the financial freedom is such a gift to us.
Here are some pictures - welcome to our home - our bungalow of love and blessings - and Happy New Year to you all :-)
