Wednesday Snap Shot

Wednesday Snap Shot will have a little different look for awhile. When I'm back up and running again, I'll return to the previous format.

Since it's been a few weeks since I posted a WSS I wanted to share the biggest change for me and Tobin with you. Our youngest son has moved out and we are now officially “empty nesters”. It's been a strange transition, but we are enjoying it in many ways. He had planned to move out right after my surgery but when things turned out the way they did, he put it off until the end of January. He wanted to make sure if his help was needed he was around. By the end of the month I told him we were handling life and he needed to do what he felt was best for him. He'll be 20 in another week and I felt he needed to move forward with his own plans. So far he's doing great and I know it was a good choice.

Also during my recovery time my daughter Hannah and her family moved to a new house. I was finally able to see it yesterday. Hubby and I went to do some grocery shopping and run errands and went for a visit to take a peek. I'm so happy for her! The house they were in was simply to small for her growing family. They now have lots of room and are in a quiet new neighborhood and loving it. 

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day! Today the sun is trying to break through the thin clouds and I think we'll have some sunshine again before moving back to more rain...

I'm excited for spring to be here and to be moving out of winter.

Tonight we are having pulled pork sandwiches for dinner. It will be a simple and easy meal for me. I have the pulled pork in the freezer. I am forever grateful to my daughter Emily. In the middle of February she came and spent a week with me and cooked up several meals for the freezer. She wanted to make sure Dad had meals to eat and I had a couple things ready to go when I started feeling better. The pulled pork is one of those meals.

Emily came and left her hubby and son at home. She had to work a few of the days she was here (she works from home often). I appreciated her hubby and son making the sacrifice of her absence as well! I did miss seeing my little grandson as he has gotten so big now (and so cute)!

And in about 3 ½ to 4 months he will be getting a baby brother. We are so excited to have another little grandson. 💗  I'm also waiting on the news of my oldest daughter, Carolyn. She is due in the next week or two with her baby. She is having a girl and we are thrilled with a granddaughter soon to be born. It's been about 6 years since we've had a granddaughter. 💕

Well that is all for this week's Wednesday Snap Shot! I hope you all are having a great week.


  1. What a growing family you have! We too are learning to enjoy our empty nest a little at a time. :) Glad you are feeling better!
