    Default Things are Different

    ...for our family...our son, Jacob and DIL, Amanda have officially moved out of Chicago.
    Spent all day Wednesday and Thursday moving them (what a job!) - they do not have a place to stay yet (in the process of home-hunting) so will be staying w/ Amanda's grandparents for awhile. Their "stuff" is stored at my in-laws, at Amanda's parents house, at her grandparents house and at our house (our family area and the storage space in our basement is FULL of their things!).

    They enjoyed the city but are ready to settle down, buy a home and start a family - and it makes my heart happy knowing that they will be close by rather than in the city ... we live about 3 hours west of Chicago and because of the terrible traffic, we didn't make the trip to visit them more than a couple of times a year ... they are looking for a home in the Galena IL area, which is only about 30 minutes from here - and a easy peasy drive. I'm just so excited for them!

    Thanks for listening to me ramble!

    How cool! I love it when families get to be close. It is especially awesome since they will be starting a family and will be easier for you to get to visit future grandchildren!

    I bet you are just thrilled!!! How exciting that they are going to be so close to you! I love being by family, but we usually aren't. We are usually a good 24 + hour drive away! LOL

    ITA with Lisa: it's a good different. I bet you're just happy to have them close by! And hopefully they find a house really quickly (and I'll pray that they can fill it with as many babies as they want as soon as they want!).
