…… and then some.
When last we met, Little Man had officially become a member of our family. It seems like he’s always been ours.
The day after that I flew to Chicago for my niece’s high school graduation. I always have a great time hanging out with my sister and her family. This was no exception. I’m very proud of my beautiful niece.
I wish I could’ve stayed longer but after 2 days I flew back to Waco and have spent the last 7+ days unpacking and getting things put away in the house. I managed to get every single box unpacked this past Friday and finally had the house looking like a normal box-less house.
I also worked my buns off putting pieces of furniture together.
And then the moving company delivered the rest of my stuff yesterday (Saturday) morning. And while I’m not really back at square one, I still have more boxes to deal with. I just have to decide whether or not I want to deal with them before Tuesday.
When I head back to New York.
Little Man spent the night with me this past Friday. We had a great time, if you don’t count the allergy cough that has been getting the best of him lately. He played in the pool that I brought home this past week. So. Much. Fun!! Although there were time when he didn’t know whether to play in it or drink from it.
Daughter #3 and her hubby and Son #1 came in for the weekend. There were birthdays to celebrate this weekend. D2 and D3’s birthday was this past Tuesday. Son #1’s was yesterday (Friday). I think they’re starting to discover that adult birthdays aren’t all that exciting/fun.
So we added another party yesterday. This one was to celebrate Little Man’s adoption. A lot of friends came and I think that everyone had a great time. It sure was a wonderful reason to celebrate …… even if it was on what should’ve been our 33rd wedding anniversary.
And while I felt some sadness that this day no longer means what it used to, it was great to celebrate the addition of Little Man into our family on this date. I was happy to share it with him.
So yeah …. it’s been quite a week …… and more. I may or may not get everything unpacked and put away before I head to New York. And if I don’t …… who cares?
Happy Memorial Day, Peeps.
