Out with the old - In with the new!
It seems that we always do things in threes at our house. Millie is getting married and we sent her money for the wedding yesterday. That was a chunk of change, so to speak! Last week, knowing we were getting a new son-in-law, we decided it was time to get rid of the twin bed in Millie's room and upgrade a bit....a new bed for her room and a new mattress for our bed with our mattress going in the guest room. I was planning on that - and was ok with it - especially after selling the twin bed and brand new bedding to some friends for their granddaughter. What I wasn't counting on was Don falling in love with a dining set as we walked into the furniture store. As soon as he sat in a chair - I knew it would be ours! And it is! It's very similar to the tables we have looked at in Jamesport (an Amish Community close by) - but it is truly Amish made in Pennsylvania - they even grow their own trees to make the furniture! --- and not shipped in from China and finished here. Things won't be delivered for a while - and when they are I'll add a picture or two. I'm excited....new things. Yet a little sad too. We just said good bye to a bed that listened to a lot of bedtime stories, absorbed a lot of tears, and rejoiced in the laughter of silly sisters. Next to go is our table - given to us by friends some time back. The table of MANY a family dinner, LOTS of games, talk time after dinner and just general good times with family and friends. We'll miss the old stuff - but look forward to making memories with the new!
