INTERSECTION OF HAPPY and SAD

It's almost time!  I'm heading back to a small suburb of Portland, Oregon to spend some time with my little grandsons.  We are all pretty excited.

School was closed for them yesterday in anticipation of a big snow storm.  They got about 0.5 inches but the family had fun playing outside and then decorating Christmas cookies.



This morning schools were closed due to ICE.  Momma had to get to work and it was a scary one hour drive and her retail shop is in the worst of the ice.  

Maui has been under a gloomy rainy haze since my friends landed.  In fact, it rained hard yesterday, with thunderstorms!  We also had a tsunami watch due to earthquake in the Solomon Islands.  So we stayed home all day.  They even brought in dinner!  I am a professional couch potato now.

Moving has just hit me now as a reality!  Not stressful since my friend will be renting and will send me anything I forget.  She will also take better care of the place than I do.  I sure do love this place.

The condo complex in Lake Oswego is a magical place as well.  Even though my unit may feel small some days, we have three clubhouse rooms which are rarely used.  One has a fireplace, one has big screen TV and one is a library.  All of them have free wifi.  When I want to entertain, there is also a full kitchen in the middle.

I'm just lucky I have such choices to make.

  1. You are lucky but it's still gotta be hard to make this kind of life-style choice. You took plenty time making this decision and therefore, you know it's the right one, at the right time.

    1. You'd think I'd be used to it by now. How many times have I "lived" one place and then the other?!! Wacky widow!

  2. Do you have your own condo or do you live with the kids?

  3. We will all be living in my 3 bedroom condo. 1,250 sq ft. It worked perfectly last time, only one harsh word between each of us. We are very lucky to like each other as well as love each other. It is a win/win situation!

  4. Change! It always has to happen, doesn't it? Good that you are renting to someone you know will take care of your place.

    Those boys! Snow and Christmas cookies in the same day. How good can life get?
