Last Saturday we moved into our new house :D it's so beautiful and still sinking in actually seems surreal at times, it needs work, but that is a great thing to keep me busy :D !!
Sunday we get 'the call' his mother has passed away at 4:30 from her fight with breast cancer.
Monday is our two year wedding anniversary, we spend most of it at the funeral home getting the arrangements in order.

Today Friday June 29th at 9am my husband and I went to the VA National Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Leavenworth KS to see his mother put to rest. The most beautiful Military Honor Guard ceremony was preformed. The honor guard in their perfect uniform's glistened in the 90 degree temps, knowing they had driven from two hours away for this seemed impervious to the heat. As they knelt before my husband and presented him the flag, the solder told him the nation thanked him for her service to this great country I couldn't hold back thoughts as the director told us they had seven services that day. Wow.

Sat June 30th I have to work, which is good. My husband is doing a walk through of his mother's home to a perspective buyer. It is a man who he and his wife just had their first child Thursday. This would be a perfect starter home for a new family, so my husband is only asking half of what the home was appraised for. They asked him why so cheep, what's wrong. He said he just wants to get rid of the memories, and they need something affordable, that his mother would have wanted it that way.

...i logged my food on the trackers today for the first time in months, it's a start.

    Sympathies on your loss. It's uncanny how the good thing are so often tempered by loss, or the less pleasant moments are leavened by fortune, isn't it? Whatever your husband's motivations, he's doing someone a good turn.

    Congratulations on moving into the new digs, and on the anniversary!

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss!

    What a great thing for your husband to do to sell the house to a new family for 1/2 the price it was appraised for.

    Congrats on your new home and for starting to track your food again!

    I"m so sorry about your loss.

    That is a really great thing your hubby is doing. That young couple (or whoever finally buys) is going to remember his kindness and then hopefully pass it on to someone else. That will be her legacy.

    I am so sorry to hear that!

    That was so nice of him to sell that house so that a family could afford a place. You don't see that much.

    Good for you, tracking! I need to get back to it!
