happy weekend

18 Feb

Happy Friday, ya’ll!

I’m currently sitting at Panera eating the best sandwich ever created.  Not a bad start to the weekend for sure.

The husband and I met with our lender a couple hours ago, and we’re going to meet with our builder in another couple hours to finalize the plans for our house. yay!

I promise one day soon I’ll stop talking about packing and moving.  Actually, let’s be real. I’ll probably be talking about packing and moving off and on for the next four months until the glorious day when we move into our house.  But I do promise to try and minimize it.

So anyway, there is only one precious week left in our house.  Only one week left with my students. Only one week left with Olive:(  That’s right, we decided to go with the option of living with my mom and step-dad, despite the fact that Olive will have to live somewhere else. It has been a brutal decision making process.  And I still cry every time I think about it.  But for various reasons it seems that it’s the decision we have to make.  I keep telling myself that I’m strong enough to be mature and make the best of the decision.  We shall see.

So, we will spend the weekend packing like our lives depend on it!  And soaking in every moment as a family of three in our very first house.

What will you be doing this weekend?  I hope it’s a lovely one:)

    I know you’ve got to be sooo excited on one hand and sad on the other. Enjoy the time left and then look towards the future (I know you’re going to do this anyway of course).

    Candice,
    Clark and I are so excited to have you and Jonathan live here with us while your new home is being built! And, I’m glad Grandma will be keeping Olive. Since it is only a mile away, you will be able to see her often. I made it a whole year without seeing you and Cristen while you were in Thailand. That time passed quickly, and this will too. This time next week we will be moving you! Happy packing! Love, Mom
