Calm Before the Storm?

April is almost done, it has been a month of bubbling turmoil to be sure. But despite the undercurrent of stress the real chaos will begin in a few weeks. At the beginning of the month we moved Pat's dad to an assisted living facility in VaBeach. Let's just say that this has been the most stressful situation we've had in years. It's been emotionally and physically draining for all concerned. 

We were pleased to sell our house here. The closing was a complete 'goat rope'  it was finally been resolved & we are now renters until May 31. WHEW! Our realtor said in all her years she has NEVER had a situation like ours. 

The month has had some good points too, Easter was lovely & several occasions to hang with friends before we go have been great.  Tomorrow (April 28) Rachel will receive her confirmation into the Catholic church, with our good friend Stefanie Salazar as her sponsor. That is a beautiful blessing that Rachel (& me as  a catechist) has been working toward for a long time. 
May begins in a few days, kicked off by Pat's trip to Europe for the NWC. I look forward to writing a few more posts and I have entered a "Happy Hour Blog Hop" to inspire more frequent posts. The theme of which is to make jewelry inspired by a cocktail. I assume I have to sample as I create..... Sounds delicious :-)
