I know I promised the reveal of Tracie’s room like a month ago! Life has been crazy. So much for a quiet, relaxing summer :-).
My summer in a nutshell -
June: Madison graduated from Cal Poly in June and moved home. We had some great family time with India (#3 child and her husband, Jeremy, Madison #4 child and Morgan #5 child ). We spent a few days wine tasting in the Paso Robles area. Morgan was our designated driver. We had a great time. Lots of good food and lots of good wine.
Madison – Cal Poly Graduate
Morgan will be attending school in Santa Barbara. She decided to look for a job there – went down and interviewed for a job and was hired on the spot! She found a roommate and moved to Santa Barbara within a 2 week period! Yes, I was a mess. I was already having a tough time with the thought of her leaving in August. I had absolutely NO time to get used to the idea.
July: My mother decided to move to Fresno. I LOVE having her here. I spent a week in Bakersfield helping her pack and getting her home on the market (which sold in 1 week). Spent the next week getting her settled in her new place. She loves it here.
After my mom’s move, I was really looking forward to our family vacation in San Diego for a week. While there, Morgan informed us that her roommate had a new boyfriend and he was sleeping over… IN THEIR ROOM. Ugh. I guess this is quite common? I’m sure all of you mother’s totally understand why I FREAKED out. I headed to Santa Barbara the day after we got home from vacation and spent the week finding Morgan a new place to live. I’m happy to report that Morgan is living in a safe environment and we are paying up the “ying-yang” for a private room for her. Santa Barbara rent is crazy!!!!
August has been just as crazy… we spent some wonderful time with our grandson, Owen, who turned a year old.
Birthday Boy Owen
Owen isn’t sure what the cake is….
On top of all this, I was able to finish Tracie’s room and start on a new nursery project which I will be sharing more of. I’m looking forward to our next 2 week vacation in New Zealand at the end of September. Counting the days…
I’ll be posting Tracie’s bedroom on Tuesday.
