It was heartbreaking to watch Michael kiss Lilina through the fence at school this morning. He is flying out in about an hour and we won’t see him again until school is out and we are ready to move. We had walked her to school and he had hugged her and kissed her before she went into the school yard. It was so sad. But then she came back again to the fence for one more good-bye. Oh my goodness. We had to hurry home so he could say good-bye to Rose, who is last to leave in the morning.
On the bright side the separation is almost over. On the negative side, we have another month apart and no clear plan on how we are moving forward. We have to sell the house here to be able to buy there so everything hinges on this house selling. We don’t know if we will head directly to New Jersey when they get out of school or head to Atlanta to wait for the house to sell so we can buy. We’ve decided though come July 1 we either need to have bought or go ahead a rent a house so the kids can start to get settled in. Michael is going to Brazil for the World Cup in June so by the time he gets back we need to be settled some place.
I will get a newsy item up for tomorrow but I just wanted to let you guys know why I didn’t post last night.
