Yes I know its Tuesday and weekend posts are supposed to happen on monday… but since yesterday was kind of like a holiday for me, I’m posting today!
On Friday Hubby and I went to the funeral for his Uncle. My husband isn’t close to many people, but Uncle Bobby was one of them. In 2.5+ years of knowing Hubs, I’ve never seen him cry. He’s not an emotional type guy. Watching him stand next to his cousin and fight back the sobs just about did me in. Friday was a very emotional and draining day.
Saturday and Sunday were a little more normal. Busy, full of errands, shopping and lots of spring cleaning. Church for Easter service and a little snuggling with my hubby. I also started and finished a couple new projects! I’m gonna show you an “before” pic of one of them because I’ll be talking about the finished project soon 🙂 Of course if you follow me on instagram, you’ll have already seen it finished 🙂
The past couple days seem to have revolved around getting a bunch of cleaning done. And that’s partly because I was still not caught up entirely from being sick earlier in the month and half because I did some deep, spring-type cleaning. Here’s hoping that I stick to my plan to keep the house as spotless as it is now. It drives my hubby crazy…. but I am definitely one of those artsy types that gets so involved in whatever project I’m working on that 9 hours will go by and I don’t even realize it! Opps, I was supposed to wash the dishes/do laundry/make dinner wasn’t I?
Last night (Monday) was really the whole point I was stressing about getting everything perfect. My Aunt and her Husband came for a visit. They live in Canada and spent part of the winter in Arizona. On their way back to Canada they decided to swing through my part of Texas and stop for a visit! It has been a year and a half since I’ve gotten to see any of my family!! It absolutely meant the world to me that they made so much effort to spend some time with me! They got to meet my Hubby before he left for work, we went out for dinner and then back to the house for a couple of hours of visiting! It was just what my homesick soul needed.
Sometimes I don’t even realize that there is this aching homesick part of my heart that I’ve hidden away. It’s just easier to ignore that pain and pretend it doesn’t exist. Skype visits and phone calls are great, but sometimes its just not enough. I’ve been in texas for over a year and a half, and it is definitely my home now, but it’s not HOME.
Anyways… Aunt Val and her Hubby were here for a quite a while and it was awesome to chat about family and memories and new experiences. We snapped a quick pic before they head back to their hotel and then onto Canada.
That’s my rambling post about the past weekend! Oh and side note… I personally think I look a little thinner in that pic. I still have a long way to go, but this kind of gives me hope! 🙂
