I MADE IT!!!!
Hi all! Well, I made it safe and sound and I am enjoying being reunited with my family - oh, how I have missed them!! The surprise was indeed a surprise and it was wonderful to see the shock and joy on their faces! We have been really busy these last two days getting totally reacquainted and me trying to juggle my time so that both of the kids had some mommy time plus catch up with my husband. I am loving every minute of it and don't want to go back to Florida, but the good thing is, I only have to go back to pack up and head out here. I thought I would share some pics of the moment they realized I was here - it was great! My DH was up at the property supervising the final pieces of the construction and I popped out of the backseat of my SIL's car - it was priceless to see! I was sooooo excited to see him! Then, I was in the back room when my kids got home from school and walked out and just started talking to them - their mouths were hanging open and I got the biggest hugs you could ever imagine! Today, I am going to spend some quality time stamping while they are all at school and work so I will actually have something to share creatively *wink*. I am driving into Chico this morning to check out the LSS to see what they have. How fun - I could get used to this no job thing! I have been cooking for my family again, taking care of doing my daughter's hair, playing games with them, making sure homework gets done - all the things we all do that we don't realize are so precious because in a blink, they will be gone. I intend to enjoy every single moment and remember how wonderful each one of them is! Until later!
