Man, we sure were spoiled this weekend. I'm not sure we're going to be able to handle staying in my tiny, little room every weekend from here on out, lol. I can't even begin to tell you how exciting it was for all of us. Even Kevin really appreciated being able to move around the rooms in his chair. At the Fisher House, he can only wheel into the door about 5 feet and then has to stop and either sit there or get into my bed. He just enjoyed going back and forth between the rooms whenever he wanted to. He also loved laying on the couch and watching tv. He even fell asleep there the first night and I just left him stay there.
To be honest, we didn't do anything much all weekend. The expense of the hotel was enough of a splurge so we just lounged around. We did go to the Brandon mall, which will be the mall we will frequent once we move into our home (assuming, lol) and we ate in the food court. I was so excited to see a Cheesecake Factory there so now I will only need to run about 10 minutes instead of 25. Maybe Breezy can get a job there so that we get a discount, hehe...
On that note, Brianna has decided to stay here in Florida with us and not move back to PA. She realizes that Kevin just isn't going to understand if she leaves so she is going to get a job and start over once we get into the house. She will be going home to PA for a month or so to see Alan, but that's about it. I am secretly glad because I would've really missed her.
And my parents are going to be moving here by this summer. I am already looking at apartments for them to move into and plan to visit three of them this week. It is just so unbelievably expensive here...
And now I am going to head home for the night. Kevin is asleep and I want to hit the hay early tonight too.
Oh - and Janna - thank you so much. We just received your letter today. I wanted to read that book (The Shack), but never went out looking for it yet. The kids went to the mall and shopped for jeans this afternoon so I was able to start it. Thanks!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
