Mother's Day Recap

You guys are great, thanks for all the encouragement and support during this wacked out time in my life. Selling and buying a house in different states at the same time is insane. INSANE!!!! I don't recommend it while sober.

Now that I got that off my chest....to answer your question: I think that in my heart I'll always be Yew Nork Babe, so I'll keep that title for awhile longer, although Connecticut Cutie sounds like a good change.

I'm at work today on Long Island. It was very difficult leaving my new house and driving out here last night. I'll be here during the work weeks....so far it seems like a good option.

My wonderful sister Lyn is allowing me to stay with her. This morning I heard the baby crying so I looked at the kitchen clock and saw that it was 6:15am. I decided that I would go upstairs and get the baby so that my sister could sleep. I got him up and had him help me make cornbread when my niece and Lyn walked down to see what was going on. Apparently the baby makes noises in the morning but stays asleep for another hour or so. And, more importantly, the clock in the kitchen is an hour and change off....so it was 5:00am! Oooooppps! My bad.

My sister Mindi came by on Saturday for the day. It only took her 2 hours from Staten Island. She loved the place. When she got out of her car she took a deep breath and said, "It feels like vacation here". That's about right.

Two of my children came up for Mother's Day....they didn't want to leave. But they did. It was great to see them. Capt cooked a great meal for us all. I'm talkin GREAT MEAL. New York Strip steaks marinated and rubbed on the barbeque, baked potatoes, rolls and pastries from the best bakery in Connecticut.....he really made the day special for me and my kids.

The hummingbirds were stopping by to drink from the new feeder my kids got me for Mother's Day. Jen and Tom were fasinated by them. We had a great time.

Enough rambling, I've got to lots to do at work (I did just take off a week to do this move).

Photos to be posted soon.

Can't wait to see the photos. It's got to be wonderful living in a home that feels like vacation to all who come visit. May your new home become full of good memories...may the rain always fall softly on your side of the street...and on your drives home may the road always rise up to meet you...slight variation on an old Celtic blessing but what the hay!

It sounds wonderful and peaceful. I'm so happy for you. Maybe you can turn it into some kind of B&B and not have to commute to work. ;)

Sounds like a lovely place, to be sure. But the commute not so much!
