May 14, 2010

Let it be known...on this 14th day of May in the year of 2010...we are officially the proud owners of one, yes, one home.
WooHoo! Zac and I went to Macomb today and signed all the papers. We had a celebratory lunch, made a couple of quick stops, and made our way back to our one, and only, home.
If I were being totally honest with myself, I would say it was a little hard to sign those papers today. My eyes started to well up a couple of times. I totally wasn't expecting that, since we've been waiting a year to sell this thing, and I can't even go near the place without having an anxiety attack, but it was a little difficult.
It's been a week of mixed emotions, though, and I anticipate that it will continue for a while. Mother's Day was bittersweet. I had a great day with the kids and it was a wonderful weekend altogether, but there was that one little someone missing. I took some purple flowers out to Livs and we visited for quite a while. It was nice. It always is. We are quickly approaching the one year anniversary of her Homecoming to Heaven, which I imagine will be a bittersweet day, as well. What more could a parent ask for...Olivia is in Heaven, she's happy, she's complete, she's with Jesus. Sure, we would love to have her here with us, but only for us. She's not missing a thing here. We are just missing doing those "things" with her. Completely justifiable selfishness, really.
Anyway, it's a big week coming up. I have some big news to share one of these days (no, I'm not pregnant...remember Zac is out of commission in that department). Ahem. Anyway, I'm saving it for a post of it's own and it's something I'm really excited about. Hopefully, I can take the time to actually keep up on this silly old blog. I hate that I'm so sporadic with it, but it is what it is, I guess!
Stay tuned...
