This weekend has been a little nuts. I've received a flood of news and I'm a little overwhelmed.
One thing I'm not allowed talk about just yet. Everyone knows how terrible I am at keeping secrets so this is really hard :( But trust me, it's goooooood! I am so excited about it!
Another exciting thing is that Mom and Steve officially found a piece of land to build on in TENNESSEE! This has been a bit of a grueling journey for us. They knew they wanted to retire to a place closer to family, so they initially started looking in Northern Alabama. Then South Carolina. Then East Tennessee. Thennnnn outside of Nashville, and now they finally call my mom's hometown home again. It's bizarre that they wound up there, but you know what they say.. home is where the heart is. They've searched high and low for the perfect piece of land to build a house on and I am so happy they finally found it. I think everyone is pretty excited they won't be 900 miles from them.
Which will be fun for me if I wind up getting a job in Austin after graduation. Not. But I really am truly happy for them. This is going to be such an exciting new phase of their lives.
On to a less happy note, my grandma had a stroke this weekend. Fortunately, she is doing much better and there doesn't appear to be any nerve damage. It scared me to death. My grandma is my heart and it hurts so bad to think of something happening to her. Please keep her in your prayers.
It's just been a weird weekend for my emotions. Lots of ups and downs and in betweens. I'm excited to see what this week has in store...
