Cousins 2/25/18

Robbie’s cousins visited today. Robbie showed Kellen how to build with the Star Wars legos. Lynn did Snapchat with both the kids. Little Nora had fun rocking in my old rocking chair. I missed getting pictures of their parents. It is nice to have them nearby.

Lynn is Visiting 2/23/18

Lynn snapped this picture and sent it to me. She drove down from Tulsa yesterday. Robbie wants to keep working on his leg, so we went in search of a fitness center. The first few places we stopped at didn’t pass the smell test. If I feel like I’ve entered a boy’s locker room, I’m…

Boxes! 2/20/18

All the boxes and furniture have been moved into our house. The movers arrived at 8:00 and took only three hours to empty the pods and set up the beds. Even though I thought I got rid of a lot of stuff before moving, I can’t believe how many boxes are everywhere. It was difficult…

The Pods Finally Arrived! 2/19/18

The pods finally arrived after multiple delays. We hired the movers to come back tomorrow and unload for us. Robbie and I put away most of the apartment items today.

Moving Day! 2/18/18

Thank You for the Priceless Gift for Robbie 2/17/18

Written by Robbie’s sister, Ruth Holland. This is Robbie holding a baby sloth at the sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. They were so inspired by his story and how he wanted to visit them that they surprised him with a ton of plush sloths to bring home to other cancer patients. Oh…and a baby sloth…

Where are the Storage Pods?

We are still trying to get our storage pods. We used Pack Rat storage pods, incase you want to know who to avoid. They were scheduled for today…they cancelled and told us tomorrow…then cancelled again and moved the delivery to Monday…and the latest is next Wed. Keep in mind that this includes our refrigerator along…

We are Officially Texans 2/15/18

We are officially home owners again! After nine months of living in a tiny loud apartment, we will be moving to a suburb of Houston called Katy. This move will be our 10th city since we got married in 1982. I always thought we would end up back in Wisconsin. We are ready to be…

Cookies for Robbie 2/13/18

I’m making Robbie’s favorite cookies today. When he was in 1st grade he kept checking out the Nestle Cookie Cookbook from the school library until I finally bought the book for him. It is a little dangerous making cookies when I’m stressed. I should be packing up our apartment for the weekend move.
