It is Happening!!!!!
Well, I just returned from an amazing, fabulous, wonderful weekend with my sisters. They whisked me away to Edmonton for the weekend. Yes, the weather was horrible, but that really didn't bother us too much. We just ran even quicker to the West Edmonton Mall! hehe We have never gotten together like this (without our respective families) and I am sad we have not. I adore my nieces and nephews, and it has always been hard to live provinces away from them, but it was extremely special for just us three to have a special time like this. This trip was a bit of a farewell for me, and I am so thank-full to my amazing sisters for this weekend! Thank-you! It is a weekend I will hold dear to my heart for a long long time. And when I think of you and miss you, I know, 'we will always have the candy store!'
And it appears that the timing was perfect. We have had a major donation come in (you know who you are, Thank-you really doesn't say enough!) and it looks like we will be buying our tickets to Hong Kong for the end of May. We sensed it would be this spring, but it truly was not in our hands to decide. I am still not fully comprehending that it really is all coming together, and I think maybe when we have the tickets in our hands I will do a crazy dance, and then maybe fall on the floor crying, then get up and dance, then fall down crying, then.....well, I think you get the picture.
Sammy counted the days yesterday and I think he said something like 76 days (I am not sure what day he was counting too). Not a lot of time to get it all together, or should I say get rid of it all. But, last time we went I got ready in just one month, so over two months is a nice change!! I think my next few months will consist of garage sales, garbage runs, thrift store runs, and packing the rest. Oh yah, I will also be schooling, but I think I have that narrowed down to the must do's for this school year. Besides, I can always start up again in summer when we are all melting from the heat and just want to sit in front of the air-conditioner ( I hope I have an air-conditioner!).
So, if anyone wants to buy anything from my house, just put in your order, and it is all yours!
