Home is where your Friends Are

Lots has been going on here in Roberts-land (where there is much of the excitement of Disney-land, but with much shorter lines for the bathroom and fewer giant animal mascots).  🙂


Our house has sold.  We’re meeting with a realtor tonight to look at 6 houses in Saratoga Springs.  I am frantically packing & sorting.  Getting up early (5:30 this morning to get boxes at the local grocery store) and staying up late to get things done without all of the wonderful “help” I receive throughout the day from my VERY active 17 month old.  Her FAVORITE thing to help me with is to take things out of the boxes I have packed, look at them and place them neatly back onto the floor

When she is not doing that, she enjoys removing prices from yard sale items or just climbing like a maniac onto windowsills and other dangerous places.


In the past two weeks I have had the best REUNIONS with dear friends from college.  Two weeks ago I had breakfast with my beloved friend Jodie.  She was up “north” visiting with family and we were able to squeeze a breakfast date in.  It was so lovely and spa-like to be up in the early morning drinking coffee and talking with a friend who has known me for what seems like FOREVER and just “catch up” on all of the things that take to long to explain when you aren’t face to face.

Then this past Saturday our friends Jon & Jill drove in from Philadelphia for a day trip to visit before they flit off to London for the next several years.  Garrison made us all Cajun Chicken Alfredo (YUM!) and I was able to sit and relax (!) and just talk & laugh.  Jon is one of these people who can make me laugh until my stomach hurts and so it always makes me feel 10 years younger to talk to him and I Sooooooo enjoyed getting to know Jill better.  Jill has to be one of the kindest people in the world because she passed the Claudia test (claudia CHOSE to be with Jill over even Garrison & I – a rare occurence indeed and real proof that she is at least as lovely as Barney – one of the only things that will interest Claudia enough to stop her in her tracks).  hee hee. 

This was the shot when Jon & Jill heard we were having CHEESECAKE from Junior’s in NYC.


OK – and here is another way our life is like Disneyland.  It’s a Small World After All.  Jon & Jill are living (for this month before they head out to London) with someone who went to my VERY small high school in Cocolamus (Cocoa-Lame-Us) Pennsyl-tucky.  Very rural.  Chicken & Waffles rural.  Most people have the same last name rural. 

One response to this post.

  1. I’m so excited and amazed about your house – yet not really surprised either, if that makes sense. I can’t wait to see where you guys end up 🙂
