Today’s Think Write Thursday topic is to look out a window you don’t normally look out of and tell us what you see. I kind of cheated. I did do the “don’t normally look out” part – but I knew what I’d see.
I snapped this photo from Charlie’s bedroom window just after I put Sam down for his last nap of the day*
That sign is in their front yard; and yep, they’re moving. Three weeks from today.
They’re moving 25 miles away. back into town. 25 miles closer to Katie’s work**. They’ll also be a lot closer to fun things to do like the Botanical Gardens, the Children’s Museum, the Aquarium, the Center for Puppetry Arts and I’m sure we’ll find more.
I know 25 miles isn’t another state, but – especially on Atlanta highways – it’s a big deal. After the move, I (we!) won’t be spending Tuesdays here with Charlie or Thursdays here with Sam. I do plan to see both boys (and their parents) on a regular basis … but we’re going to let things settle a bit before we figure out a new routine.
And you know it will be a very little bit because I don’t think I can go more than a week without seeing this in real life.
*not to confuse y’all – I pick Sam up in the morning and we spend the day at my house … until just after his 3pm bottle. Then we head back to his house, so he can have a good nap in his own bed (instead of a carseat), before the family gets home for dinner.
**she works at Coca-Cola’s headquarters and she’ll have a 15 minute commute. a real life changer!
Thank you to Carole and Kat for the prompt. I had no idea how to share this news … but I think this worked! Click here to join the Think Write Thursday fun!
