Hope all my sparks buddies are doing just great. I am happy to watch the news from warm Mexico. Looking at the video and photos of the storm makes me shiver!!!
So my vent is that my DH is driving me crazy. Here is a man who I have followed and done so many things for throughout our life together. I have moved so many times due to his wants/needs/desires. So now the house across the street from his son (the one with two grandchildren age 4 & 6) is for sale and he would love nothing more than to buy it and move across the street. I know it is really bugging him as I know he would love that and has said so. The nice thing is that the daughter-in-law is the one that would really love it and has said so. I know she would like it as we are both so good with the kids. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my step grandchildren. But there is no way I want to move to Pennsylvania! I know I would be unhappy in the cold again and I am not sure I want to be all around the "drama" of family again. Remember, my mother moved back to Pennsylvania to live with my sister after building on a mother-in-law suite that is huge. By the way, now she is thinking about moving again into a retirement home where they have more activities as she says she is bored being in the country where my sister lives. So my sister is excited as she gets to benefit from all the improvements to her house...as she and her husband would have a master suite that is incredible. So that whole thing only lasted a year. But if we were to move back not only would we be "nannies" but I would feel the pressure of driving and helping with my mother again. Remember she lived here in Mexico 6 years and I really did a lot for her. I was happy when she moved as it gave me a break. So no way do I want to move back into that situation. I feel bad for my DH as I know he would love to be across the street and help our with the grandkids. Just not for me. So he will have to be happy knowing that I accept that he wants to be near them more than I do (I get on kiddie overload) and don't complain when he goes for up to two months at a time. He is planning a trip in April and May and June. The granddaughter's birthday is April 17th and the grandson's birthday is June 1st so he will go up and stay for both birthdays. He will also work on finishing the basement which he has done all by himself. I know he wants me to want to go for a visit then but I am going to pass on this trip as we are taking the whole family....both sons, daughter in law, 2 grandchildren and my husband's two sisters to Florida to Disney world for two weeks at the end of June. So that will be my "spring" trip. My DH has rented a big house for this event. It will be fun to take the grandkids to Disney world. Anyway, I must be getting old as I prefer not to travel as much. So one spring/summer trip will be plenty for me.
Thanks for listening.
Do have a terrific week end.
