Tonight is our last night together as a "whole" family. This week has been full of packing, fun, cleaning, fun, shopping, fun, eating, fun and lots of love!
This weekend, Corby and I will become a "couple" again. It's been 20+ years since we've lived alone. I'm not sure I can remember what it's like. Don't get me wrong, I love my husband with all my heart; but I am truly going to miss the kids. So, while I'm very excited that they are spreading their wings, it's very bittersweet for me.
Tomorrow morning we head to Manhattan, a big truck loaded with beds, dressers, couch, love seat, coffee table, end table, dining room set, tv's, stereos, desks, i-pods, dishes, food and clothes. Wow - when you're moving 3 - it's a LOT of stuff!
When we come back, it will be to a quiet house. I'm sure our three cats and dog will be getting a lot of attention!
Kaleb and Kaitlin are lucky to have Brandon show them the ropes. He's been very good at telling them what to expect, so I think they are well prepared.
And a quote to send them off...
"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go."
