6/27/17 Where Does My Joy Come From....

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

..... my daughter Julia called me last night to talk about her panicky feelings of the sudden engagement and the sudden decision to give up her little apartment to move into her fiance's place (another room mate will live there as well). She has been fearful and unhappy since the rushed engagement, so she finally came to the conclusion, that she really loved their relationship until this family pushed for the engagement. And so she decided she will stay where she is at and enjoy being a happy girlfriend like she was before without all those pressures. Let's see if that will make her happy. At least she came to a decision. Those were a few hard months. Poor guy :) Glad to hear how happy and relieved she sounds now.

.... I have another day off and after getting myself ready for the day, I will put on some good music (right now I am in love with Ricky Martin's MTV Unplugged Spanish Session. Such amazing ballads and such fun music to dance to!) and then get moving through the house. Laundry, decluttering, dancing.....

.... I reconnected with a friend I have not seen in a few years. She will have a German and a Dutch Exchange Student for a year at her home, and since she never was able to have children, I know she will pour everything into hosting the two girls and becoming their family abroad. I am so happy for her. I am excited that she asked me to go to lunch with them to meet the German girl when she arrives. I hope I can help her feel more comfortable in the US as well.

    I think it is great that your daughter knows herself well enough to make that decision. I is all part of maturing, isn't it? I mean to be able to make a tough decision because you know it is the right one for YOU.

    Glad Julia decided to follow her heart (and probably her head too).

    How wonderful! Also glad for your daughter, that she wasn't pushed into something she was not ready for yet. Shows she can make decisions that benefit her and not just to please everyone else. I'm happy for her. Why does it seem like everyone wants to rush things? So you're dancing to the tunes huh? That's super. Hubby is golfing all day tomorrow and I think I'll put on a few different CD's while I wash my kitchen down.

    Finally got the new carpeting and floor, and everything turned out well. I'm so grateful for my insightful hubby and the interior decorator. I love everything now. Just have to finish up cleaning my kitchen because with the construction they left a fine construction dust on everything and I mean everything.

    Glad you're doing well Ute, have a super summer, and I plan to come back to the Fall Challenge. Please keep me in mind and send me a reminder when sign up is ok?

    Take care my Spark friend,

    So happy to see a return to your "series"! Lots of good things going on with you.

    I have a question. Did you upload a new picture of your poodle that is purply, or is there something wrong with my monitor?
