Visits...Farwells & Weddings

We are headed off to Grandma's house this weekend.  I'm feeling like crap today and hoping it passes before we leave.  My sister has lived with my Mom since my Dad passed.  She's dutifully helped with the chores and chaos that comes with living on a farm and also dutifully annoyed my Mom to no end, I'm sure.  I'm kidding, kind-of.  :)

Anyway, my sister is now moving out and moving on.  The fates have spoken and it is time.  Mom has mixed feelings as do Karm and I, but neither of us will be so far we can't visit.  I've tried to imagine what it would be like to have lived with and shared my life with someone for some 40 odd years and to suddenly be alone. 

I'll be honest there is a side of my brain that says WAHOOOO! to this question.  Although, I would have to say that the bigger part would grieve terribly, and it would be hard.  I feel for my mom during this time and plan on calling her often to be sure she's still up and moving and that my horse is not starving (yeah right, he'd NEVER starve!).

So we are off to Grandma's to say farewell to my sister who is leaving this Sunday.  I don't know when I'll see her again.....OK I do.  In December at my niece's wedding.

Steph & Steven

AAHHH! Aren't they adorable?  I love this shot, it exudes happiness and contentment  I wish them all the best.

And..........I wish my sister all the best.  She starts a new and exciting life Sunday, well I don't know how exciting Glendive can be, but all the same a fresh new start!

Good Luck Sis, and Mom, we are always still here for you!  Love you guys!



  1. Love you too Sis! It's been good staying here with mom for the last year and a half...but the universe has spoken and its time to move on. I know we'll both be keeping in touch with her often...and as an fyi your future nephew-in-law's name is Steven...just to let u know before your slightly OCD neice see's this post! LOL!

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I should fix that before Steph's OCD kicks in! LOL! Gotta love her!
