Creating My Future
Monday, January 11, 2010
A big beautiful wedding! Our family is united with lots of smiles and love. People begin heading home and our very large limo takes our very large family to a very large NEW home. The kids didn't know and all start going crazy as we tell them to run upstairs and pick out their own bedroom! They can't believe there's enough room for everyone to have their own. We let the two oldest know if they want their rooms to be in the basement that there is a bathroom and living room down there too and they both run downstairs excited to see their new part of the house.
My new husband and I collapse into an overstuffed chair together (we've both lost so much weight that we easily fit snuggled up close) and lay quietly listening to the kids explore their new home. Our dogs are busy playing with their new toys in the backyard and exploring their new doggy condo we had built for them. Our birds and happily chirping by the large living room window their cages look out from.
My husband and I hear the phone ring in the office room and get up to see we both have messages from the businesses that we run together. We decide to let the phone ring, it can wait until Monday, we just got married afterall!
Our parents join us shortly later to stay with the kids for the weekend while my husband and I are getting ready to go on our honeymoon in Ireland. I pack warm clothes knowing it'll be cold there in the winter and wondering if modern day castles have better heating than castles from times past.
Before we head out we call all the kids downstairs and lead them out to the garage where we show them our new 9 seater vehicle so we can all go places together without having to take two cars. We let them quickly hop in and explore and take them for a ride through our curvy neighborhood streets and then have them all go inside to get ready for bed so we can leave.
Once our parents are getting them all settled in we start heading out to enjoy our four days with only each other and the rest of our lives all together.
