This is the anniversary of Certain Man and Certain Man’s Wife.
Middle Daughter spent this day with a number of people helping to get her house ready to move into. She is renting a house for at least a year and it is a wonderful little house, but has been empty for almost a year, so needed some work.
Are CM and CMW really ready for this precious daughter to move out?
There have been so many nights of family time and it is nice to call her down from the upstairs to lend a helping hand, give us medical advice, or just the comfortableness of having an adult child that is truly a friend living at home.
Are we really ready???
I don’t really think so. But it is time (I guess). She has a job, she is 27, and she needs some independence (I guess). If the truth were told, she doesn’t really want to go, either, but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and the decision was made with our heads. Hopefully our hearts will follow.
There is a lovely sunroom/porch attached to the back of the house. It looks like this:
And the view in the other direction from that back porch is very restful:
This really doesn’t do it justice, but I love the view. I could sit on her porch for hours and soak it all in.
I wish I had gotten some before and after pictures of the yard with all its flower beds, but I didn’t. I did get this picture of some of the work force:
Laura, Amy, Ruthie, Rachel and Bekah
Holly also came and helped.
As did our fearless youth sponsors:
Actually, Oldest Daughter has been a most encouraging helper to her sister:
And She and Beloved Son in Law are fixing lunch for us tomorrow in honor of our anniversary. Life doesn’t get much better than that. I don’t have to cook Sunday lunch! (We will be eating at home though, because of the space and also Blind Linda’s aversion to anything unfamiliar.
And here we are, 34 years ago today!
Oh, how the years do fly!
