Home Safe, with Soup and Cereal

Filed under: Family & Friends,Interstellar Casa — by InterstellarLass @ 9:30 pm

Despite the intial plan to stop over in Midland or Abilene, Nick and Pop made it straight through in one day. I, of course, didn’t get everything done that I needed to do, but I was expecting an extra day.

We have soup, cereal, Kleenex, and toilet paper coming out our ears. If the second coming happens tonight, we’ll be sitting pretty.

Pop is temporarily set up in Elle’s room. Elle is sleeping on the couch. Her bed and room will be put together tomorrow. All the pieces are there…it’s just too late, and more stuff needs to be moved to the garage.

I think I’m going to like having Pop here…he bought beer before they came home. A man after my own heart. 🙂


  1. Life changes are always a little bit hard, but you guys sound like such a warm and loving family that you seem to already be sailing through the transition period.

  2. Beer? Who said beer?
    Yup, he sounds like a keeper, Lass.

  4. Ah…bringing home beer, a sure fire way to be sure of your welcome! 😉 Chocolate seems to work pretty well too!

    I really enjoy reading your blog and added a link to my blogroll! Cheers!

  6. Well, some change in your household, but I bet you guys make the transition just fine. Poor guy, sounds lonely. That’s great of you to take him in on such short notice. Bottom’s up!

  7. A guest with beer?! He can come stay at my house even! I’m sure he’ll be a welcomed guest. Elle probably likes sleeping on the couch, it’s like camping out!

  8. I hope that things go well, that can be so tense. I will keep you in my thoughts.

  9. Awww. I’m sure Pop is so glad to have you guys. And no doubt having him at your house will be a blessing once everyone’s settled in.

  10. People in the lone star state are always opening their hearts and their home to others with open arms
    I have family in Texas and every one I have met has been as my Sister would say sweet as pie.. 😉

  11. Beer? God bless him. If it doesn’t work out over there, send him over here…
