.5.20.09.."Reality.."

Well, my wonderful husband and I have made our decision.
Arkansas will be our new home.
It hit me this morning.
The Mr. left for work and I'm sitting in the room, getting our day planned...then the thought came across my mind.
My sweet pea Mom..I started crying and couldn't stop! My Mom and I are best friends! She's my buddy. MY MOM! I love her so much and the thought of being away from her is tearing me apart.


I can always count on her- to be silly with me, and can talk her into anything!! Ha! Ha! Like putting a god-awful hat on and take pics with me.

She's always taught me valuable lessons in life:
* Always act like a lady.
*Mind your manners.
*Never know when company is coming over..always have your house presentable.
*Having an animal is a privilege. Take care of it.
*Treat people as you would like to be treated...{*Mom, this doesn't always work...but, I will continue with this advice..}
*Never loan out:Your car,money,horse, or your husband {really! She always told me this!}
*Don't take crap from anybody!
I love you Mom. I'm gonna have to teach you to blog...

Congrats on making the decision to take the next journey in your lives together.

I can't say I wont miss the heck out of you, but I know that you will never be more than a phone call, an email, a text, or a flight away.

I'm proud of you for doing what's best for your family.

No doubt that you will be missed from this area by your family and friends.

we ♥ you!
So as I am typing this I am crying my eyes out...
Not only am I crying cause it was a sweet blog about your mom....(great lessons!!)
But you are for sure moving. This makes me have mixed emotions. On one side (the good side of me) is so very very happy for you. This is a great opportunity and a chance you cant pass on for sure!! The other side (selfish side) is so sad..one of my most dearest closest most wonderful friends is moving. Not across town....nope like a bazillion miles away!
Ok so now I am done pouting....I love you guys... and am so very very excited and happy for you!!!

I'm envious; for this is going to be a wonderful adventure with so many new experiences. This is a new chapter in your life and I am happy for both of you.
