It’s Really Real!
I seriously started crying this morning when I was making a very short Facebook post about this. All the talk and thinking and waiting – has been fun and all but, this is real. It’s really really going to happen. We are really buying property in Florida. We are really contracting a builder to build a home on that property. We are really packing up 29 years of married life and moving thousands of miles from our children. And as sad and hard as that part of it may be, the rest is so exciting I can hardly contain myself.
My family – parents and children have always thought this was all talk. We have always talked about doing this or other things like it and never followed through. This summer – on my Birthday in fact, my parents were here, my sister and her bubby were here and some of my kids were sitting inside with my parents while the rest of us were outside eating. Somehow the conversation got around to the fact that we were looking at new homes here in Michigan. Talking with builders and looking at new developments here. Someone said “I knew they would never move to Florida” and my daughter’s fiance thought to himself, well you just sealed that, they will now be doing it for sure…LOL And it is funny because in no way did anyone not thinking I would, influence the decision to go. We want this. We have just grown enough to be able to step out of our comfort zone and do it!
I seriously cannot imagine doing it with any one other than my wonderful husband. I am so loved and so supported and so happy with our lives, the new scenery will be a bonus.
We take the documents to the bank tomorrow with our two witnesses and do the signing and overnight it back to Florida for the bank closing on Friday. I assume the builder will have to go to the Bank Friday as he has sections to sign on the documents too.
In other news – I’ve stuck to my diet for going on two weeks now and don’t feel cheated in any way. I’ve worked out every day and I am so looking forward to being done with this three-week round because I am NOT doing anymore rounds of this program. I forget why I hate it in between times when I make the attempt. Lifting weights in a cardio state is on my “I hate this” list. If I’m going to jump around and do shit, cool. If I am going to left weights, they should be semi heavy and be done precicely. Don’t combine the two, I don’t like it at all.
Below are my still fluffy pictures, but the scale is slowly going down.
I ordered these cute vacation shoes today!!!! I went with the red and white I had red/black, red/white, pink/white or pink/black…they were all cute but I think the red white will go best with any clothes I might wear with them…Jean shorts and t-shirts mostly.
OK People – I need to get back to the FREAKING homework that is truly testing me. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming….2.5 weeks and I will be on to the next one to test me and complain about LOL then I get the summer off WHEW!
