I just got done helping my daughter and her hubby move into their new house, and helped her paint the interior. We'll be having a scrapbook day this weekend and going to a Scrapbook Convention. It will be my daughter, myself, and two friends. And in the next 5 - 10 days I'll be packing up my Blazer to move to Texas, back to my home state! Although Texas is where I want to be, it's going to be hard leaving my oldest daughter. They will be putting in for a transfer in the next year and half, back to Texas (my son-in-law is in the Army). So, on one hand I'm excited about getting back to Texas, seeing my parents, and my youngest daughter, and spending time with my granddaughter (which I've only seen once since she was born Feb '08), on the other hand, it's gonna be hard leaving my daughter. Have you ever mad a move that you looked forward to but at the same time didn't? We both knew that me staying here with them was only a temporary thing.

Scrapbook Convention?!?! How come I wasn't invited?! =*( Well, you go on ahead and have fun with that - and please share all the juicy details. Maybe someday I'll be invited to one of those conventions. =D As for decisions - I've made some hard ones. When I moved 8 hours away from home to go to College. And also leaving all my college buddies up North (of Cali) to move back home. It was definitely a tough decision - but no regrets though. We learn to move on and cherish those moments. And look forward to those days when we get to all see each other again and reminisce. I'm sure you'll have a great time with your family in Texas, and I'm sure that you'll miss your daughter terribly when you move back to TX. P.S. Is Arlen an actual TX city? (I know it's a stupid and a naive question)

You must watch King of the Hill. Arlen is a fictional town in Texas.

i made a move not by choice but because of Hurricane Katrina, I came home to where my grown kids was and where I had lived most of my life till I got married and moved to Louisiana. I was not happy to come back here, but had no choice, Ohio always held bad memories for me. I loved being with my 3 kids and grand kids, but there was always that thought of going home again. Why haven't we went, because when I mention it, my grand kids cry. But my hubby is from there and never been out of there till Katrina. He is constantly begging me let's go home. How do you pick between leaving your grand kids and making your hubby happy. It can't be done. I have a grand daughter who will graduate next year. I want to be here. I have a grand daughter that is her sister and has had a major stroke at the age of 8, she is here for as long as she is with us. How do you leave that, and still keep your marriage together. When you have kids spread out across the USA it is hard making a decision as to where to be. I am glad you have gotten to stay with your daughter and I know how you look forward to going home again. And seeing that other grand baby. Good luck on your move and what you do after you get home.

I've thought, briefly of staying here longer, but my fiance reminds me......Texas is where I really want to be. And he will be there with me, so, as long as we're finally together, everything else will fall into place.
