Thanks for your reply. I've been worried, and I didn't want to say or do anything to make you feel like you had to come here if you didn't want to. On the other hand, I think this would be a GREAT place for you to be. And I have to admit, I'd love to have you here.

I had a dream the other night. We were old, Ken had passed away at the ripe old age of 92, and it was just you and I here (yeah, you were still here at that age - what a hoot!). We were still in Rochester - at least from early spring until after the holidays. In winter we went to the southern property Ken and I bought when I retired from Mayo. Year after year we kept decorating our little 'perpetual tree' every month, and sat out every day for an afternoon break with our herbal tea. You did sewing and crafts, and I was still writing (I know what a scream).

Don't I have silly dreams? :)

I talked to Cheri today about the girls and how they are acting, or should I say Shauna and how she is acting. I also talked to her about me moving to Minnesota and how I felt about that. I told her that we would be writting something up so that no one felt like they were getting the raw end of some strange deal and she agreed that that would be best. She said that that way the girls couldn't but in so easily. I told her that sometimes I get scared of how angry the girls will be and that the thought of them hating me is very real and scary. She said that they may be angry but that they will always love me and that she feels that this is the best thing I could do for myself and for the girls. I already know this but it is nice to hear the support. I know that my staying here would be my end. I won't let this happen and Cheri and I talked about this as well. She said she is sad that I have to go so far away to find my happiness but that it is something that has to be but that she will support me and try her best to ward off the girls when that time comes.We also talked about Wendy moving up there when she is out of school and about her having a place of her own. Again she was in full agreement that this is the very best plan. I know all this but it is nice to have support in my corner for a change.
I saw you online last night and wanted to chat but both girls were sitting right there so I decided it was best to let it be cuz they like to see what we are talking about. Shauna was sitting here trying to convince me to babysit for her friends. She said she needed to get a job for her sanity cuz she has 3 kids all under the age of 3. I ask her why they all kept having kids if they didn't want to raise them. Somehow I just know that she will be having a baby in short order. I have a feeling that she is already pg,,,as much as I hope it isn't so I know in my gut that it is.
Pray that I get an offer for my land shortly and can get out of here soon,,,,very soon.

Is this a great reminder or what????

You might call it spiritual logistics, Sheila, but... sometimes you have to move away, to get closer.Or you might just call it weird.Either way, it helps to remember it from time to time.

I love getting these little tidbits in the mail. They always seem to fit right in with where your at on any given day.

I will be so happy when I am able to move back to MN. Keep your fingers crossed on the trailer and land getting taken care of quickly.

I miss you sis.

Well June is here and the wedding is behind us. I will spend the next couple days helping Shauna find someplace to move then I am going to call the trailer place and see when they will be coming to get the trailer. After I talk to them I will be calling to see if that place that wrote to me about buying this land is for real. If not I guess I'll list the land and put a for sale sign out front. Pray that that place is really wanting this land please.
