Thank You

Thank you all for all of your prayers and well-wishes.

My grandma's service was lovely. I hope to get some time to do a proper post. There's a lot to get out.

I miss her.

We packed up Tuesday to head home, and then we realized that our farm closing was this Friday. Today! So we headed to Missouri to be there in person. We even made it in time for Josh to be present for the inspection. Our most major issue is that we'll have to redo the septic. I can't seem to get away from the icky streams! We're still going to buy it...today at 4 pm central time. Woot.

I'm glad we're here in person, but I really wish it hadn't taken grandma's death to get my ass out here. :/

Well, just thought I'd keep you posted. Hopefully I'll see everyone again soon.

Thank you so much! Well, I'm hoping they will. Not believing it til it happens though. :P

you've had a long history now of 'shit/butt' issues. dogs, kids, septic systems. i hope the fact that you're buying this place and fixing the septic is the symbolic fixing of all the issues! it would be wonderful to be done with the 'icky streams'!!!

Man, you are quite right. My life is one big shitstorm. It does seem to be a recurring theme. I'll definitely make Josh get on that swiftly! We'll probably have to wait til spring or summer though. Not sure we can do that straightaway come winter time. :/

Hey! See you soon. :D

Good luck on the closing! Did you buy in Farmington? That's near where I live! (Sort of kind of).
Oct. 23rd, 2009 05:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! We're actually close to Centerville, but the closing is in Farmington. Where are you at? We might be neighbors!

Not neighbors, unfortunately - I'm in StL county.

Now that you live near St. Louis, make sure to catch a Cards game and a show at the Muny (in the summer, they have free seats in the back (but the not-free seats aren't too expensive considering it's professional theater) and it's musicals). There's also the City Museum (avant garde all ages playground with history of the city) and the Arch of course. Good weekend get away stuff - there's also the Lake of the Ozarks with fun stuff and Branson which is kitschy and awesome.

That's neighbor enough for me! I think St. Louis is the nearest Starbucks, so I'll be there every now and then. LOL

Sounds like a lot of fun in the area! We're definitely wanting to explore all of our museum, zoo, & national forest options. We'll have to get together and do something fun! We don't get possession for 30 days though, but then we should be moved in.

The Zoo is awesome and free! I think, if you guys are still around tomorrow, that they are having Boo in the Zoo with special children's activities and stuff. Just about all of the museums in Forest Park are free too (the Zoo, the Science Center, the Art Museum and the History Museum) which would all make great homeschool field trips (although, depending on how your girls do in the car they might need to be overnights). And the Mark Twain forest is so awesome as is Johnston's Shut Ins which are both super near Centerville.

Best wishes with the move! Let me know when you're settled in. :)

Free zoos are awesome! We'll definitely do that then. There's a tiger sanctuary in St. Gen that we want to check out asap too. I think Eden would really love that.

Luckily, after like the last 4 out of 5 weeks being spent in a car, my kids do really well with car rides. :D I haven't heard of Johnston's Shut Ins, but a lot of the places we looked at were near Mark Twain, so we're eager to check out local hiking too. We will miss our beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

I'm glad your grandma had a beautiful service.

Fantastic news on the farm - ping me your new address. The children are putting together a letter for you guys.
Oct. 24th, 2009 02:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you! We're not actually moving for a month. We should get possession Nov. 23. I'll be sure to send you the info once we get home. I've got it all packed up somewhere.

*Hugs* Thank you.

Hugs for you.

I'm glad your buying the farm though.

Oct. 24th, 2009 02:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very glad too. I just wish my momma and grandma could have seen it.
Oct. 23rd, 2009 08:13 pm (UTC)
Now you can take your grandma's essence and sow it into your new land. Some belived that the death of a guide makes the magic stronger. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Oct. 24th, 2009 02:12 pm (UTC)
I'll definitely do it. I plan to do the same thing (quite literally, actually) with my momma. I'm hoping that they are guiding us and using their new sway in heaven. :)

Thanks so much! I am always so very grateful for any prayers.
Oct. 23rd, 2009 08:51 pm (UTC)
Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. I hope that her passing was painless.

You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am also praying that your new home will be everything you want it to be and more.
Oct. 24th, 2009 02:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you so very much! I hope so too. They believe it was.

I really appreciate all the prayers.

I am so glad that you and Josh are there for the closing. Hope that everything will be smooth. Nothing like have aplace that is totally yours.

Glad that your grandmother's services were beautiful.
