Happy Sad.

Life doesn't stop.  It just keeps going, paying no mind to the hiccups that may arise along the way.  Since completing the move to our new home two weeks ago, we have unfortunately not had one single day to just be home. 

And unpack. 
And organize.   
And just be.

Regardless, it feels so good to be home.  Even if that means I am surrounded by boxes and a smidgen of chaos. 

The last couple of weeks have been chock full of happy-sad moments.  

We were met with the unexpected home-going of my beloved grandfather, or "Grandpie" as we liked to call him. 
Happy he's free and his mind clear.  
Sad that he's no longer here.  

I was also a part of a wedding! 
Happy for wedded bliss.  
Sad to see young people growing up so fast.  Makes me seem older than I feel.  

We celebrated Easter!
Happy for the life I have found in a Savior.  
Sad to not spend the holiday with all of my family as in years past. 

But I'm home.  The boxes aren't going anywhere.  They will be there tomorrow.  And probably next week.  And maybe the next. 

More happy things:

I just discovered that there is a medicine cabinet behind what I thought was merely a large, oval mirror in one of the bathrooms.  (Yay for more storage!)

I found a new ranch dressing made from yogurt that is natural, preservative-free and only 45 calories per serving!  And it tastes absolutely amazing.  This is very good news for my waistline.

I have a new cell phone.  And a new cell phone company.  I still have no idea how my phone works, but at least I am getting a signal out here in the country. 

I finally have a fully functioning kitchen again.  No.  More.  Subway. (I'll be updating my Recipes page soon.)

My heart (and my coffee cup!) are full.  It's going to be a good day.



I don't have a problem with caffeine.  I have a problem without caffeine!
