Time to go

Hello all my blogger friends/.

Well, the time has come - we have a date to move - Friday and Saturday December 28th & 29th.  Lots will be moved over before those dates but the big move with the big pieces requiring help will take place as mentioned above.  We will pick up the U-Haul on Friday and some young strong guys will come over around 4:00 and load up the truck - everything but our box spring & mattress and a few essentials for morning coffee and clean up.  On Saturday morning more young men will help us load the bed and then we will head on over to our new place and unload it all.

This is the plan barring any glitches...none are expected but even if there is a glitch in a closing date etc. we are still moving since it is freaking time and I/we cannot do this limbo here and there life any longer.  Nope, Enough!  Ya know?

We call our new home "The Bungalow"  - it is cozy and quaint and homey and easy to manage and maintain.  I promise pictures once we are settled in.

Also, we are shutting down my computer, internet, phones and cable on Wednesday the 26th of December so we can have all the components at our new place for the Cable guy to set us all up on Thursday. I probably wont be back on line until New Years Day or so.

We are taking time to gather for Christmas Eve as a family - honoring our Mom and carrying on time honored traditions - specialty food items and activities - and Christmas Day we will have our lovely traditional brunch of "everything bagels-smoked salmon- cream cheese - fresh fruit and poppy seed rolls ( a sweet delight my Mom made every year)...coffee and orange juice too.


  And then, come Tuesday - the final laps begin - it is both the ending and the beginning of the road - we are holding on tight and stepping off together - in love, in truth, in earnest, in kindness, in simplicity, in peace, in gratitude, in blessings, in hope, and faith and surrender,  Amen......

I wanna' come over for Christmas breakfast; I LOVE poppy seed rolls, Gail! Best of luck with this move--I can understand the feeling of being in limbo and wanting to be done with it. Let's hope it doesn't snow at month's end in Connecticut; I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Gail said...

HI SCOTT and thanks. Would love to have you here for Christmas - the poppy seed rolls are amazing time tested/honored and perfected.! And rain or snow - we are doin' this.
Love Gail

Hi Gail, Limbo feeling, it will be good for you to get settled in for sure. I am wishing you a Merry Christmas and know that I will be thinking of you and your family traditions. I will be thinking of your Mother and her strong faith and her loving family. I am so proud of you for your strength Gail and know that with that strength and your love
that Christmas will be a loving tradition for your family no matter where you live. Your bungalow will be easier for you I think, can't wait to see pictures. Talk to you in the New Year...love you. C
