I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Catching Up

I'm just home yesterday from two weeks in Buffalo providing child care for youngest granddaughter while daughter and son in law worked from home.  They have newly moved too so life has been super crazy for them.

My decision to go help came quickly on Monday June 8th in an afternoon phone call.  Got off the phone , packed, transplanted perennials that I had been babysitting since they moved north last July and Dan drove me to Buffalo.  We arrived just before 11 pm and Dan turned around and drove home arriving at 5:30 am.  Technically he should have had to quarantine but kept a low profile anyway. Sunday the 14th he drove back because he was bored, tired of the food, and I needed his help with entertaining an almost 3 year old. 

We had planned to visit there anyway for the Father's Day weekend so the trip was not unexpected just the timing of my going and the length of our stays. We also planned to celebrate birthday #3 with her so came prepared with presents.  Her July birthday will correspond to our move.

Watching 30 minutes PBS' Daniel Tiger was a daily occurrence.  She knows all the songs and sings them at appropriate times.

As I said we got back yesterday and now are in quarantine. All the posts I had scheduled will go on until our move.

Once settled I'm going to rename this blog and have a new look!  Stay tuned!

p.s. I'll still be reading your comments as they come in to email.  I'll try to visit your blogs too.
