kate5kiwis: "Evacuation... complete!"


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

"Evacuation... complete!"

*movie line lol*
D18 is all moved out/in and is loving it already.
meanwhile, back in The Sunny Bay, the 4kiwis are negotiating who/how is gonna move into his evacuated room... it's a toss-up between R14 and J12. wow, our house is Suddenly Spacious: the three-brothered-bedroom will have only two peeps in there!!!
and while all the measuring is going on, S10 has been creating a cutesy little clown.

ummmm, we-e-e-e-ell, it's a funny thing: you can't live an experience until you live it. i thought i would *sob* all the way home from The Big Smoke this afternoon, but i didn't, instead i sang along really loudly with Evermore: "cos i see the light surrounding you, so don't be afraid of something new..."
and we're gonna rendezvous in three weeks (at easter) so it doesn't seem like such a void between here and there, you know?
on the other hand i feel like i'm missing an arm and half of my guts, just *knowing* the reality of "our first baby birdie in flight". but he's ready. and the place is buzzing with adventure and expectation, Bulldog thinks he'll feel like he's on camp for the first few weeks. wonderful.

the kids have been talking all afternoon about how much we miss him already, and simultaneously grinning over his room becoming vacant lol. S10 wants to skype him already.

yep, lots in my head/heart: i am off to the gym now, i think i'm gonna become *very* fit over the next few weeks.

of course my *real* thoughts are longer than my blog post. but you already knew that.
love love X

I managed to get the word verification thing wrong THREE times, then the comments wouldn't load, then I wasn't signed into Wordpress, so it wouldn't work. Doomed not to comment??

Anyway, so glad your family is all okay, thank goodness for Skype! Loving that clown, does he do parties??
