To borrow a phrase from our military days.....we are 3 days and a wake up until our departure date!
As March 25th gets nearer we are taking care of last minute details, but more importantly saying goodbye (for now) to our family and friends.
For our kids and grandkids, this will be hard to roll down the road without shedding more than a few tears...I see my oldest daughter at least once, if not 4 or 5 times a week, I see my son and his family at least every few weeks and my youngest is a close 2 hours to spend a weekend with. We will still keep in touch all the "other" usual ways....phone, text, facebook, emails...but it just won't be the same as being able to run across town to see them and the grandkids..........the ONLY thing I am not looking forward to getting used to! Soooo we'll have to start doing the skype thing, so we can at least "see" how the kids are growing and how funny, smart, and sweet they can be.
Okay, Okay, we will be back in a short 2 1/2 months, but that's the longest mom and dad have ever been gone (together anyway). We will all get used to the new lifestyle together. They will all have their jobs and families to keep them busy and we will have new places and faces to keep us busy and to share with them.
For our friends we are leaving behind, we will miss them tremendously, but, again, they have their lives and families to keep them busy and we have new places and faces to share with them.
Sooooo, I hope my family, my friends and anyone else interested will check back from time to time.

Love you all the bestest!!
Until next time..........
