We've texted and emailed. But we talked today and she was so overjoyed that I"m coming back and she's decided to get a different wedding dress and she is now waiting for me to get back to go shopping with her. But to hear the joy in her voice and hearing her tell me how much she's missed me and how glad she is that I'm moving back brought tears to my eyes. I've missed her so much and now we get to spend the final 2 months until her wedding doing all this stuff together we are both so excited.
    I was having a real hard time with all this until I talked to her today. Now I can't WAIT to get up there.
    You two are so close and I'm so glad you'll be spending more time together now, MRD. When is your move?

I actually think it's because she doesn't want to bother with it, but for whatever reason, I'm glad we get the opportunity to share this with the girls.
    What are the girls going to be for Halloween, LB? Have a great time and post a photo of them dressed up for us if you can!

    Alexis is going to be Tinkerbelle and Baileigh will be a lady bug. Lexie is a Tinkerbelle fanatic. I just finished re-doing her room in a Tinkerbelle theme. Curtains, sheets, comforter, border. It's adorable.

    Over the weekend, my husband and daughter painted the living room, hung the curtains I had picked out but never hung, rearranged, brought in unused furniture from the garage, hung pictures and generally made the living room, homey and welcoming for me to come home too. I was really touched. And my daughter says that her dad has been cleaning the master bath and bedroom too. (I've been gone 3 months, I can imagine it's state).
    They know this is hard for me to move back to SC. We thought we would all end up back in Florida. They also know that I'm not crazy about the house up there and because of the separation, I never felt like finishing the upacking or painting or hanging curtains.
    So they've been busy making it an easier transition for me.
    And they've all missed me!!! That just about makes me cry. When I left, I didn't think that anyone would ever miss me again. But to be told that and to hear how excited they all are that I'm coming back, makes me very happy, even though I am sad to leave my friends down here. But I'd rather be with family. :-)

    That's great, mrd! I know you wanted to take things slowly with the reunion, but sometimes rolling with the punches can be fun. Enjoy the wedding preps! Hope you can find a job there and get back to school come January.

    Re: Share your good news

    Just noticed how long this thread has been laying dormant. Surely one of us must have some good news to impart!!

    For me, some of you know I fell down the steps backwards at home. I am glad to report that I am feeling much better, off all pain meds except an occasional Tylenol, and can do a lot more things. That is my good news.
