Going Home...

Well, not really home. But, as they say, home is where the heart is. And my heart... is definetely in NY!

This Friday, hubs, B and I are heading to NY to see my 84 yr old grandmother and all the rest of my family.

I am so nervous about packing all the stuff I have to pack for B. I feel like I am packing our lives. Portable crib, clothes, bottles, food, bowls, spoons, etc., the list seems to go on forever.

I know it will be a blast though.

No one up there has met Mr Man, so I can't wait to take a bazillion pictures, and get some great memories.

We are all getting older and I know time is short.


Yesterday was a sad day, as my hubs great aunt passed away. It is weird, because even though I have only known her for 6 years, I feel like she was such a special part of my life. She always told Hubs to take care of me, he had caught a good one, and those simple comments, are so cherished. She will surely be missed!


Then, the day before (Dec 1 - my Poppy's birthday) my cousin had a baby boy. Little Anthony was brought into the world. I am so happy for them, and I can't wait to meet the little guy. What's funny is that my dad was on a business trip, in the same city they live, so he was the first family member (on our side) to meet the little man.


It seems in this time of growth, so many things are changing. We are getting older, Mr Man is getting older and wiser, and it really makes me sit down and be thankful for all the blessings in my life.

The truth is, we all get old, and we all die. But to have those special memories, that special time with the one's you love, just means the world to me!

Life is fascinating. We lose people and it seems as though someone new to love is introduced into our life. Sorry for your loss honey

You've had a lot going on. Life is amazing. I was once told "Success is a journey, not a destination" and I try to live by those words everyday. Have so much fun on your trip!

Thank you for the Christmas Card! I'm sorry about M's aunt:(
Have fun in NY..I love NY and would just die if I got to see it in the winter. I use to tell my college roomate that we were going to live in NY even if it was just for 6 mos and we were in a 1 room apt/loft..I didn't care! Ugh, have a blast! I'm jealous :) What part? Oh, it doesn't even matter,its NY... but I know Times Square is decked out with Christmas decor!!!
Have a safe trip!

I hope you all have a great time in NY.. Its funny no matter how long I live here, Massachusetts and NH will always be "back home" to me too!! I also am going to be able to see my grandparents that are 82 and 83 years old, when I go to florida!! I miss them so much, and sad to say you never know how long you will have with them :( well have a great time, bring some snow to texas for us when you come back!!!
