As We Prepare to Move A Child

Tomorrow I leave bright and early with my husband and two daughters to make the trek out to Arizona to move one of those daughters to her new college hometown.  The past weeks have been full of fun and prep as we get ready for this big move.  

There has been car buying for both girls.  No, they are not thrilled at all with their first cars. :)
A dental visit at dad's office, where her twin just happened to be shadowing that day.  

An Anne of Green Gables movie marathon.  We can check this off the bucket list of "things to do before we leave for college".

Dropping off little brother with friends, so he can have fun and not have to hang out with me and his sister for the road trip home after dropping off his other sister.  

Snow cones with friends. 

And one of the best stress relievers ... exercise!  My kids have continued to get up and go to the gym with or without me every morning.  I'm so proud of them. 

I'm also really enjoying going on long walks with my friend when I visit her.  Yesterday, after dropping off my son, my daughters and I spent the night with our friends and us girls all got up to get our exercise done at a local park. It's so nice having friends who want to fit in fitness to visits and I hope that never changes.  

So, life continues to happen and I am continuing to attend meetings.  The scale is going back in a healthier direction and I'm glad for that.  

I constantly have posts brewing in my mind, but making time to come get those thoughts out here on the computer is another story these days.  However, there's lots brewing about "just what exactly do I want to be spending my time on??" and blogging is still at the top of my list.  

So, I have plans and hopes and look forward to sharing them all in the future.  But, as you are all so good at understanding, for today I have laundry to do, suitcases to pack and plans to fulfill as we make sure she has all the big stuff that is cheaper to take in a car than mail in a box.  

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by!
