Monday's Musing, early edition

"Now there'll be a day you'll get there, baby
You'll hear the music play, you'll dance, baby
You'll leave bad times way behind
Nothing but good times on your mind
You can do it, roll with it, baby
Then you'll see life will be so nice
It's just a step up to paradise
You just roll with it, baby" - Steve Winwood

I'm sitting here at a Starbucks posting - with no internet at home. This past week has been a wild wild ride, and I truly hate to disappoint all of you who are hoping for design news, but...it's just personal news this time! This past week, my family, some packers and I boxed up nine years worth of household and business, and moved. It's a long story, and we're feeling pretty dislocated right now. It's all good in the end, full of great stories that I know we'll be telling for a long time, but right now we're all a little shell shocked!

I'll tell you the story when I can get online again. We're pretty far from where we started, and this week we have to go back so that Mr. Romi can have shoulder surgery. Craziness. Thank heavens for good friends. :)

Have a great week everyone!

Oh, good luck with everything! It will be so different riding my bike through what I always think of as "Romi-land"!

Hope all will be well.

Good heavens, you and your family are having yourselves a Year. We'll trust your assurances that it's all good, and hope you find the time to share some stories. And your faithful readers all understand that time is in short supply in your life at present. You have a lot of boxes to unpack, and a stash to settle!

Best of wishes to your husband - may his surgery go well, and his healing be fast.

Romi, your genuine honesty and heart have made you much-loved even by us "blog friends." Thinking about you and sending good vibes through the airwaves.

Be glad there were movers. We just did a move this past summer, one state over from where we were living. 7 years of stuff to pack. 3 kids to console. And a husband who had to work in the new state before we could move there. It was a tough go. We won't discuss the amount of chocolate chips I ate in the weeks leading up to the move - being the sole care giver, sole packer, etc.....required much comfort. *grin* We wish you the best on this journey. And hugs can realy cure a lot of things!

I want to click 'love', but I don't have that opportunity!

Good thoughts and mojo to the entire family as you adjust to being transplanted, and especially to the future patient. Shoulder surgery is a long recovery (lots of rehab, that's all; it takes time), but usually does the trick. Hang in there: it still is just one day at a time!

I will be praying for you! We will miss you while you are gone but understand that life happens :) Best Wishes.
