Late Thursday night we began packing daughter #2 furniture and other items and finished on Friday. Hub drove the U-haul to meet future son-in-law to unload. Hub said future son-in-law kept asking if a piece of furniture looked okay where he placed it. Hub jokingly said, it doesn't matter because when Emily would come she would change it. Ha-that's my daughter!! I am glad hub got to spend some time alone with future son-in-law--men bonding for a little bit.
So what did I do on Friday while hub was unloading U-Haul? I took my mom and aunt dress shopping. My mom is 77 years old, and we haven't always gotten along very well. I was a daddy's girl, and when my father passed away at the age of 47, my world just kinda crumbled. Anyway, Mom enjoyed herself and so did I!! I have become to have more patience with Mom the older I get. Sometimes I just take a slow breath and hum a song and all seems to be okay.
My aunt, who is my father's sister, is only two years older than I, so we are more like sister had a blast! We all shopped, laughed, and ate till our hears desire. It was such a fun-filled day no one (including myself who was so anxious about the outing) wanted to come home. I did text hub a few times to make sure he was okay with the unloading of the U-Haul and he was.
Later that evening hub and I talked like we usually do on our front porch about the day's events. I told him about mine and he seemed to enjoy his day except for driving the U-Haul-he said he thought he was driving a wagon.
Ran a lot of errands on Saturday to get ready for daughter's bridal shower this coming Saturday. I have a few ideas and daughter has a few ideas so .....who knows.
Sunday I went to see how the apartment was coming along. I must say it looks very cozy and I am proud of daughter and future son-in-law. I am sure they will make this place a happy home.
Tomorrow is a professional development day for me-what was I thinking???? But I told myself this would be my first -last day of professional development!!
Have a great week.
Please say a prayer for a special friend of mine. I just learned a few minutes ago that my friend's husband is dying. Such a strong woman but I know she would appreciate the prayers.
