Our moving day is this Friday! Today is the last day I'll post until we are reconnected after we move. We're on the home stretch with our packing, leaving out only essentials for the next few days. We close on our house here tomorrow, our new house on Thursday, and then Friday, MOVING DAY.

Our three grands are coming on Thursday to help us finish up and will help me clean after the movers empty the house. We'll do the hardwood floors, one last swipe at the bathrooms and kitchen, and voila! Out the door we'll go Fri. after lunch.

Thank you for your patience as I go through what I hope is our FINAL MOVE.  We'll only be 15 minutes from Holly and family, which is a big plus in our book.

Here are our grands, our helpers, plus Holly and me, on Mother's Day:

That's Bethany with me in the picture above. She was very sick for a couple of days last week with fever, vomiting, etc. Her hubby Kurt took her to urgent care Friday night, and after X-rays and testing, they found that she has bilateral pneumonia. With a weak immune system, we were very concerned about dehydration, but they gave her a breathing treatment, antibiotics, and other meds to help her breathe. She was to go to the doctor as follow up, but at this writing, I don't know the prognosis.

I ask that you pray for her recuperation. They were planning to come East to be with all of us for the summer, so now that's on hold. We want her well first before they make a trip that far from AZ to GA.

Thank you, doxie lovers!

That's a valid question, and I have several answers. Have a seat and read on!

We are moving to Macon, Georgia, in just a few weeks, and listed our house for sale on April 9. By April 13, our agent stopped taking offers: we'd have 44 showings and 22 offers, several above asking. Whew. We had to find a home at our new location pronto, so we enlisted an agent there and toured our top five we saw online. We chose a home in one day, made and offer, and over the course of the past week, our offer was accepted.

In the meantime, I broke my toe, then we were in an accident (not our fault--someone rear-ended us on the interstate), and we've started packing for our move, which is two hours away.

Why are we moving? We have no family here, and we want to be closer to our daughter Holly and family. And, we'll be only 15 minutes from them.  Our son-in-law is a pastor, and we'll be attending their church as well, the first time we've lived close enough to do that in many years. Our daughter Bethany and SIL Kurt are coming in a few weeks from AZ (after we're moved), and plan to stay for the entire summer! Remember, they're the RV travelers. Holly's new home has a pole barn in the back yard, perfect for the RV. This is one happy mama/grandma.

My posts will be sporadic as we prepare to move, and for a short period after we move until we can get our wifi connected there.

See you soon, doxie lovers.
