    Sounds like you have re-focussed and that your meditation helped you greatly. Lots of big changes and some of them stressful. You have a wonderful support team here on Spark and you are embracing the change with understandable trepidation. You have solid and realistic concerns and I see GREAT things coming of this. Being the only drive for five is A LOT especially in winter weather country BUT you also say they are going to continue to be snow birds for awhile so you won't be tethered too much TOO soon. Definitely sounds like the good is going to far outweigh the possible negatives. Will you begin looking now and put your house on the market soon? emoticon

    Nice vlog! It's sounds as if you're under some stress - especially with your mom's husband. It's a hard situation and I've been praying for you! emoticon

    Great to hear from you again. Wow, it does sound like big changes. I have actually thought of going in with one of my kids to purchase a home that would have a seperate apartment for me attached and selling my place to do this. I think it is wonderful for families to pull together like that.

    Take care.

    Welcome back Angel. I think your mediation was a great epiphany for you and you sound like your goals are back on track.
    The idea of you mom and her husband moving back up there and finding a place that is great for all of you (like with a mother-in-law suite (an apartment within the house that is fully furnished with a kitchen) would give you a great deal more comfort and you'd be close to your mom again, the bills would be less and your son can grow up knowing his grandparents much better. I think it's a great idea. Good luck with it all

    So wonderful to see you smiling again! I was starting to worry about you!! And your last blog title is right, you are back!

    Congratulations!!! And getting these years with your mother are important. My father is 64, and my mom is turning 63 in Feb. They are retiring and moving in with me. So me being the loving daughter that I am, I am giving up the master bedroom so they acn have their privacy. I kind of hate the idea of it, but they need more privacy than I do!

    And I love to see color back in your face - even it's from the cold! It will be 80 tomorrow but is only 63 here now. Perfect weather for getting sick...

    Keep up the smile and happy face and enjoy the season!

    Glad you had that meditation and that your Spark is back. You are being very realistic about the journey ahead. Good for you! You got this!

    Big changes to come if you all live together. Keep us updated. I worry about my mom too. She is healthy at 83, but one never knows....

    I love your hat!

    I love what you said about when you get to goal you don't quit, because it takes pretty much the same lifestyle to maintain! I love that, it is exactly how I feel about it. :D I plan to do the same thing I'm doing now, the only plus side is the maintenance calories will be slightly more, obviously not a bunch more because that is when the weight comes back. We will get there and we will be ready when we do. emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear that you don't get along with her husband, and the fact you will be the only driver in the house, but I'm so glad you will get to spend some valuable time with your mom. emoticon I'm also glad your son is excited about it too!

    emoticon for re-finding your commitment. Sounds like a lot of thought is going into what the best plans are - and you seem to be handling the stresses of upcoming changes well.
