Can I tell you how excited I am? For the FIRST time in over 30 years I am going to live NEAR a parent. Close enough that it doesn't involve an overnight commitment or an all-day venture to visit. Close enough that I can just pop in to say hi. Close enough to drop my laundry off (kidding!). Yep, the Maternal Unit is moving. Not just "moving", but moving to a retirement community that is literally within jogging distance of my home. And since I am NOT a jogger...it is CLOSE.
Took Mom to check out her new digs this week. And not only is it a VERY nice retirement community, but by the look of the water fountain at it's entrance...it's got some residents with a sense of humor too.
Yep, it's going to be fun having Mom so close. Not to mention, maybe I can save a few bucks on laundry detergent and fabric softener.
P.S. I haven't been posting quite as frequently this summer as I usually do. I've been enjoying my days, instead of documenting them. I will get back to my normal schedule of posts after the laid back days of summer have passed. In the meantime, I am going to aim for a few posts per week. AND, I have a new photography link-up I'm rolling around in my brain. Hoping to get it all nailed down within the next few weeks...so stay tuned! Hope you all are enjoying your summer too!
