This pandemic stuff has really been a bummer, right? Although our daughter and family live just 30+ miles from where we are in Marysville, we really haven’t been able to connect as much as we’d like. I did get down last weekend for a bit to give her a hand with some mask sewing
and to spend some time with Alexandra.
(There may or may not have been more time spent with Alex than actually sewing, but I’m hoping that was a help too!)
While we haven’t been able to connect since, we will be heading that way tomorrow for a good visit. Yippee!!
Meanwhile, down in Waco….
Josiah and Abigail closed on a new house yesterday!They’ll be moving over the weekend (today!) (and spreading out after over a year in a 2 bedroom/1 bath house with 7 people!) and have asked me to come and give them a hand with settling in. In reality, I’ll probably be doing more of the Occupy The Kids routine than actually unpacking, but that’s what us Gramma’s are called to do, right? So Monday morning I’ll be flying to Waco, with my mask and hand sanitizer and plenty of snacks in hand, for a week to lend them a bit of Gram’s Support. The good news is I’ll be seeing ALL of my kiddos and grands within a two day window. The bad news is I will probably miss the arrival of the sweet baby here in M-ville. Sigh. (Though, with all of the COVID-19 guidelines, I’m not sure just how present I would’ve been able to be anyway.) Hopefully, I’ll get to meet the little one upon my return, though even that will be from a distance I’m sure.
Hope you all have a good weekend. Rumor has it that this is a holiday weekend, but at this stage of the game I’m happy just to recognize that it IS a weekend!
