Guys, I finally have internet. I have been without it since we moved in on the 10th. It was finally installed two days ago, and I’m just a tad behind. I’ve missed catching up with you all, and I intend to read and catch up with everyone soon!
I will be posting about the new place, and Christmas, but first I need to post about the goodbyes. We had a great last play date with my younger brothers and their kids. We met up at Scandia and played in the tunnels. Piglet actually learned the word tunnel that day, and wouldn’t stop saying it. He also learned “ball pit” and now every time he sees more than a few balls together at once, he screams “ball pit!” at the top of his lungs.
I can’t think of a better way for these boys to say goodbye than one last rough housing/wrestling/wiggly good time. I am going to miss those boys so much. My youngest brother also stopped by for a visit, and I got the chance to meet and get to know his girlfriend and her two kiddos too. Guess what, more boys! They were sweeties, and all the boys had a blast playing together. My youngest brother actually lives in Oregon, just about two hours from where we moved. My older brother is only 40 minutes away, and the second youngest is the one who lives in California. He’s actually job hunting in Oregon, so there’s a big possibility that we’ll all finally live in the same state for once. I really hope they move here. Piglet loves hanging out with his cousins, and I know we’re really going to miss them.
We also had to say our hardest goodbye, which was to my best friend Geeky and her husband. We met them for lunch and they got to spend some quality time with Piglet before leaving.
I did my best not to fall apart, and the tears didn’t start til we were actually leaving. It’s so bittersweet-I am so happy about the move, but I wish there was a way to be in two places at once.
Geeky is pregnant, and I’m over the moon excited for her. I want to be there for every step of her adventure, like she was for me. It won’t be the same long distance, but I’m going to do my best. She is going to be such an amazing mom, and I am so happy she’s finally getting her baby. I’m not going to share her story with you, I will just say that it has been a long time coming, and I couldn’t be happier for her. I just wish I could be by her side to watch her belly grow. Thank god for skype! Miss you already bestie!
