Well, that was a fun weekend. I got Mom home safely and came home. I did not quite know what to do with myself when I got home. I had a lot to do, a lot on my mind, I was worried over the financials surrounding Mom’s move. I wasn’t sure to work in the house, to rest, to watch a show, or work on my To Do list. I needed to work through some stuff in my head. I didn’t know where to start. I just sat down in a chair and did nothing. George was reading. We talked about the situation and decided it was dependent upon a few certain things as to whether this situation was “doable” aka affordable for Mom. While we talked, Mom was doing some investigating into her finances. She called. And it appears everything is in order and it is doable and affordable – despite some odd or unforeseen situation. It was a relief to all of us. After that, I was relaxed in my mind. I’m excited to have her come this way and so if all goes according to plan, after seeing the HOA rules, and looking at the build site, Mom plans to “say yes to the new address”!
Saturday we will be picking her up and going back out there and she will pick the lot, put down the deposit (I guess, unless it’s done before then). Then we start working to get her house ready for sale. It’s going to be busy but very exciting. So my new project is “Project Mom”. LOL. Looking forward to having her here where we can have time to properly take care of her. The move puts her new home built by December. We think her house, in this market will sell very fast. So she will stay with us in between. We have a lot of storage room downstairs for temporary storage. Some can go here and likely we will have to temporarily rent a storage unit also – we’ll see. We will figure it all out.
Exciting times for sure!
So now that Easter is over, I’ll be working this week on my To Do List, and the next video, which is our Texas trip. I have been VERY bad about not doing any filming/videoing of anything in the last month. I guess I’ve kinda been in crisis mode with the videos. I’m at a cross roads of having to decide how it is I want to continue doing them. I want them to be more intentional and that means more planned. This based on several of your comments. But what happens is there is minimal time for planning these things. I usually just pieced together snippets of life as it happened, unintentional – but some of you complained or gave comments that you wanted more of this or less of that. So I just kinda clammed up instead. One thing is for sure, I don’t really have time to do them. I’m stretching right now with working FT and life happening. Time is always an issue. But I’ll figure it out.
I also have to decide if I want to work on my To Do List or the videos themselves. lol. Lately there has not been time to do much of anything and my time is going to be narrowing as I deal with the move for Mom and once she is here I’ll be spending a lot of my hours with her or for her. But, like I have said before. I love doing the videos and will figure it out. Right now I just feel like my life is in turmoil for some reason. I’m sure it’ll iron out! lol
At least we are having fun. I’m also wanting to go the flooring place this weekend. I’m anxious to see what this is going to cost us. And I’m anxious to get this done. I told George and Mom, I’m about ready to move out myself! This is going to have to be on me to make it happen and pushing for it b/c George is NOT going to take the lead on spending money!
Ok I’m going to be over and out and work on my To Do List some. We’ll see what happens.
Meanwhile in Texas
I think River made peace with the Easter Bunny. I see his little grin!

Good luck with your mom’s move. It will be an exciting time for sure. The little one is so cute! Have a good week ahead!
Thanks Betty! You all have a great week too!
It Will be nice to have your mom close by. It’s not going to be easy but it will be worth it in the long term. Prayers that all will go smoothly making the move.
I think you posted this in the wrong place. It’s such a nice sentiment though. Hopefully, the poster will see this comment, too.
I like your videos as they are. Whatever you have in them. Odds & ends is OK.
I know how bad you want new flooring. Don’t give up that dream. George will get over it. Somehow.
Your mom is taking the lead in her move.
Little River & the big Easter basket. Adorable.
Thanks 🙏 for this! I will keep on keeping on! We are excited about Mom!
Dear Sonya, Poor you and your problems…that I know are not….real….problems it’s just trying to get them in some kind of order. Your videos are ever so good and I know you enjoy doing them, but we have to admit they do take up a junk of time….which is going to be at a premium this year….so a decision I think will need to be made whether to give the Vlog your half attention or shelve it until you can give it its full attention,..that would be an awful decision to make but looking at it seriously ..once this year has gone you will have got Mum settled and then you yourself will be able to settle and take up the Vlogging seriously again….you have all the equipment you need now and you can still be gathering shots that can be incorporated into a Vlog at any time …ie spring, summer, autumn and winter scenes they can be used anytime inserted into tales of family life. Anyway love that is how I can see it…..Now I can’t tell you how excited I am about Mum moving like you I wasn’t at all sure she would do it…but I read a bit on Facebook where she remarked that she was ready to move to someone she was facebooking….and I knew then it was going to be all systems go…..I’m really pleased for everyone and hope that building goes even faster than anticipated……I had better stop now or this will turn into a book…. drive safely to and from work today. God Bless..
No it’s not really a problem- just a time issue and we will get the most important things done.
The new place looks really nice. Maybe you should sell your house and move over there too. Get one next to your Mom. It looks perfect for a retired person or couple. I remember when we bought our house our real estate person said it was good to move after being at one place for a long time. Start everything fresh and new. If we move someday in the future I am paying someone to move us. We are too old and both have bad backs to do it ourselves. Plus I am going to just sell the house with most of our furniture and just buy new. I am happy for your Mom. It will be a new adventure for this chapter of her life.
Little River Roo sure is growing. He is a cutie.
I’m sure we will have to move at some point b/c of the stairs and yard work! We hopefully have a little while. Our house has lots of space and storage so we will put it off as long as we can!
