I'm NOT Going to Cry; At least I'll Try Not to Cry...

It has been quite a while since I actually WROTE a blog. For the past...I don't know how many months (A LOT), I have been posting videos...which is ok, but I probably do need to write every now and again. So....here is a written post....

A lot has been going on in our family. With four children, something is always going on...which is how it should be, and I LOVE it! But!!!! For the next month, I am going to be on an emotional roller coaster...mostly going up...which is good. I don't want any downs...

So, what is going on? Ok...here it goes....

This week, my daughter, her husband and MY 18 month old grand daughter are coming to visit!!!!! Ya...I'm just a little bit excited!!! It has been awhile since they have been at our house. Baby has never been to Grandma's; and Mom and Dad have not been to this house. We moved since the last time they were at "home."
So....my daughter and grand daughter plan to stay for a few weeks. Here husband has to get back to school/work. Actually, he starts his internship with his physical therapy program...which is another exciting thing...he is almost a full fledged physical therapist!   

The second thing that is going on is....my missionary son is coming home!!!! He has been gone for two years, and he is just about done with his service. I remember when he first went out, I had so many emotions going on. I has excited for him, happy, sad for me...all at the same time. Imagine being excited, happy and sad all at once! Yes it is possible...but very exhausting! 
Anyway...I hope I don't cry. Usually, I am not a crier, but not sure I will be able to hold back those happy tears. When he left, I cried tears of joy and sadness...weird, I know.....

Ok, so after he gets back, we will be heading to Florida to see my family. It has been awhile since my son has seen them, so we thought we would take a very quick trip to Florida before we took our daughter and grand daughter back to North Carolina. 

Now the next thing...I have to say good bye...to my son...ugh! Yes. He will be heading back to school...hey! At least I can call him and talk to him and text him, whenever I want!

Now...one more thing!!!

I'm going to be a grandma, again!!!!!! Yes, our oldest son and his wife are due...August 29!!!
So, you see why there are going to be so many emotional things happening in our family...all good things...all up hill on the roller coaster of life! 

Again. I really hope I don't cry....

But, I probably will....

Sometimes, just thinking about all this, I feel that big lump in my throat....
