In transition....

We leave to go back to Florida this weekend. I have mixed emotions. We leave our little cabin by the lake, Jack's house, good friends and some wonderful summer memories. And I leave my sons and grandchildren for 7 months. My home is in Florida now and that's where all my "stuff" is and Jack's home is in Maine and that's where all his "stuff" is. It's a dilemma when you meet and marry at an older age. We wouldn't want to start from scratch again together plus we both like our "stuff". If we got a new house, it would have to be really big....and we both had downsized plus I am never cleaning a big house again!

I haven't posted for over a week but I will next week after we get back. We have spent the last couple of weeks moving out of the cabin, packing, organizing, and saying goodbye to dear family and friends.

When I get settled I will organize my Pay it forward event and do some bloghopping and say hi! I am really far behind. We look forward to seeing our Florida friends and catching up with them. So in the meantime, everybody stay well and busy and I'll see you after November 3rd!

Hello Carol

I relaised you hadn't posted a blog for a while and I thought that you were on the move. Hope you have a good journey back to Florida. You are very lucky to be able to divide your time between the two place although I see what an upset it can be! Take care my blogging friend, Jackie.

Happy Halloween! Save travels I'm hoping for you. I don't think I could live in two places. I'm such a homebody I fear it wouldn't work.
