My mom has been with us now for almost 3 weeks, and she leaves tomorrow. I always get sad and a little depressed when I have to say goodbye after a visit. Add to that, my husband is leaving at the same time for a trip (for the Reserves). So, all the pretty Christmas lights are gone, my mom will be gone and so will my husband. Do you feel sorry for me? I know, I know, it’s a good chance for me to rely on the Lord for encouragement and strength. So enough pity party already!
I did get all the Christmas decorations put back in boxes and organized today, which was my goal. As my husband was putting the boxes back in the basement, he decided that he needed to organize and clean out the entire basement! I kept coming downstairs because he was making an awful racket, moving things around. It looks so much better now though! Our basement isn’t totally finished, but we have our family/tv room down here, and after his work today it’s much more comfortable. He found some things too that had been in hiding under other things, and now I have some pretty pictures up that I didn’t before today! I’ll take some pictures another time to show you (because one of them has a story behind it that I would like to share at some point.) Anyway, I’m very happy with his project today!
I need to go to bed, but I’ll leave you with some pictures of my visit with my mom. My dad was here too, but he had to leave earlier. Anyway, good night all!
