Nothing totally special about the last day of May, except its the ending of the first half of the year and then the start of the next half! Whoopeee I know but I am wondering where the year has gone to, it seems like only weeks ago I was dealing with all the issues with Kirsten and her dad. Now, 6 months on she wants nothing to do with him regardless of what I say to encourage her to just accept him for who he is. She only bothers with that side of her family when they make contact with her, which isnt really that often. I guess she has to do this one herself. A couple of weeks ago she asked me to text her nan to tell her she wasn't going up there for the weekend because she was going into town and to the cinema with her friends. In return I got her nan accusing me of all sorts. I assume she thought I was keeping Kirsten away. I asked Kirsten if she had any idea why her nan would say all this but instead of getting a yes or no she got angry that her nan would say this stuff. Next time I wont say anything to her, there's no way i'm going to be the reason she doesn't see her family, especially before we fly out of here.
Today i'm very restless about the move to Utah, things are in and out the house like i'm a shop, paperwork is keeping our postman busy and dealing with all the natural emotions of moving so far away from my boys and my dad is starting to weigh me down. But having spoken with all of them they totally support our move and our reasons for going. I knew it would be hard but I didn't think i'd be affected so soon, maybe a few days before flying out but not yet. In my gut I know its the right time so I dont have doubts enough to stop me going, just that its naturally going to be strange not having my boys in driving distance. Ebayers don't help either, they win a bid, not a buy it now price but a bid, they turn up and get rude and offensive so much so that twice i've had to ask them to leave and cancel out the transaction. Now if they'd have bartered with me i'd have been fine, after all, thats what you do when your buying secondhand stuff, but these guys didnt, not one little bit. I wondered if it would have been different if there was a man in the house. Idiots.
We are loving the weather this weekend, through all the sorting, packing, cleaning and tidying we have kept a good spirit here, half geared by Kirsten and her friend Sophie. At this moment in time I wish I had two girls, I think it would have been easier for Kirsten over the years but it is what it is and she will have 2 step sisters in months to come and some new friends are already waiting to meet her so I think thats another good thing about us going. My friend Angie is going all out to help us there in Lehi, her children are working on their English accent so we're going to have some fun there...especially when I do my brummie one which Kirsten hates!!! Lol We are going to stay with Angie and her family for three weeks and in that time I just know I am going to learn a lot and have the best time! I just wish she wasn't moving though!! :( **sigh**
Dinner outside today for us, a full roast dinner (blame the kids) out on the patio under the great big parasol with the cat scavaging and the dog whining....but I tell ya, he has no table manners to sit at the table!! ;)
Oh, one last thing about idiots, getting here from somewhere other than Technorati does not hide you are here! Lmao! You know who you are!! :)
Have a wonderfulastic Sunday!! :)
