Mission Accomplished


About an hour ago, my mom left for the airport after a short visit. It was an eventful visit though. After months of research, she made the final decision on where she will live when she moves out here, and put down all the necessary initial deposits and such. So it is all set!

Her new place is a 16 minute drive from our place. By comparison, it is a 37 hour drive to her current location… So this is MUCH closer!

The exact date she will be moving from Ohio to Washington State is not yet set, it is dependent on exactly when the sale of her house closes, moving company availability, etc. But the expectation is that it will be before the end of February. So very close now… Just a few weeks.

It will be good to have her here full time.
