Full House aka Our New Life

20 February 2013

Do y'all remember the sitcom Full House? I'm sure it's alive and kicking out there in rerun land. Anyway  it was the story of the Tanner family; a widower, his girls, and their unconventional family. The theme song always made me smile.

What ever happened to predictability? 

The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV. 

Everywhere you look , everywhere you go (there's a heart). 
There's a heart 
A hand to hold onto. 

Everywhere you look , everywhere you go. 
There's a face 
Of somebody who needs you. 

Eveywhere you look, 
When you're lost out there and you're all alone, 
A light is waiting to carry you home, 
Everywhere you look. 
Everywhere you look.

Why am I babbling about this and what the heck was my post about last Wednesday? Well, my life has taken a turn that makes me think of Full House. Little Miss and I have moved across the state to live with my ex-inlaws. Yes, you read that correctly. I was so nervous, but it's not awkward at all. We've been here a week and so far everything is going well. Mostly. Little Miss is struggling with the school transition, so prayers for her would be awesome. I truly believe this is going to be a positive change. For the first time in nearly two years I have both my kids under the same roof. The work opportunities should be much better than back in Podunk. Positive things are happening all over the place. There are seven of us in the house, four generations. Th house id full, but there is no weirdness; these people were my family for 15 years and they didn't choose to change that. I am so blessed to have them as well as my family who are all so incredibly supportive. We've started a new chapter in out lives, one that's sure to be an adventure! Now, if only I could locate Uncle Jesse....
