Silver linings

What an absolutely lovely day. :) This afternoon, we'd scheduled a pizza party at the Pizza Hut down by Craig's parents for Alicia with some of Craig's family and our friends who still live down there (26 people in all), and we had an absolute marvelous time. Got to socialize with people I haven't seen in over a year (two and more on some of them), and was even good and had the salad bar instead of pizza. PLUS, found out that they finally opened the Outback in Basildon, so guess where Craig and I are going on date night this week? Hee hee...

I even found a silver lining in the news from Craig's boss yesterday. In talking it over with Craig today (and turns out we won't even have a definitive answer on going earlier until the end of the week), I pretty much established we can't go until April at the earliest. Craig's parents are on holiday for the first 2 weeks of March (and absolutely no way are we moving while they're gone, not when Alicia and Alex are the only grandkids and we're moving them not only across an ocean but across a continent as well). And then, on the 20th, I'm meeting up with i_digress_uk and the_royal_anna for a girls day/night in London, and no way am I missing that. Then, the 27th is Craig's 32nd birthday, and with her youngest son moving away, I don't think Craig's mom is going to let us go without her doing something for that day.

So that makes April the earliest we could logically move. And looking at it that way is much better than thinking it could happen some time in the next couple weeks. :)
