Party Pants is on her third sleepover this week. It’s only Thursday night. Tonight they are at our house. I must confess I am being way more lenient with the “back-to-back” sleepovers than I would be if we weren’t moving in 6 days. Gotta let her get time with her peeps! I am totally at her mercy. Am I still going to be able to call her Party Pants when we get moved? [Insert raised eyebrow here]
Two more farewell gatherings coming up. I hope I can make it through without totally falling apart. People are so kind to want to give us a warm send off. I have adopted a somewhat cheesy, yet applicable, perspective to help me get through: I have a treasure chest. And in this chest I have assembled quite a collection of precious people. Each place we have lived, I have been able to add a few more to the chest. They are rare and valuable treasure, and I get to take them with me wherever I am. I am very blessed indeed! Looking forward to adding some more in South Carolina. 🙂 Call me goofy, but I guess it’s just a bit of self-preservation.
SIDEBAR A: I just have to say that I think I am totally addicted to Sundried Tomato and Basil flavored Wheat Thins. I know, I know. They were on sale at the local “mom and pop” grocery store…2 boxes for $5…I just couldn’t resist. Thank goodness one of my precious friends (treasure!) was over this afternoon and helped take care of some of them for me or I DO believe I would have eaten the ENTIRE box. Good Lord! What is happening to me??! OY!
SIDEBAR B: Clyn comes home Tuesday! Woohoo!
Counting down and packing my treasures!
