Where is the Time going?

I have no earthly idea how the time is flying, and it's been 2 weeks since I posted. I check to see what's happening in Blogland, but just whiz on by the posting part.
In the past two weeks, we spent 3 days visiting with our daughter and her family, that means the baby. At 14 months, her personality is shining right out there. I think this one will be opinionated, not so much strong-willed, but make her thoughts known.
When her mom scolds her, she broods for a bit, won't look at her mom, but would smile at me, kind of in-your-face like. I had all I could do not to laugh. That would have been deadly!! Mama Lion would have put me in time out! Oh, the joys of watching her grow.
Speaking of this joy, we are talking about moving 2 hours north to where they are. One thing we see alot of in South Fla is elderly who are miserable because they left the family up North to have the good life here, and especially after the spouse dies, there's no one around. The gang from the north doesn't visit much, and life ain't the same. They live in their retirement communities, and everyone aroudn them is sick or dying. I ain't having it!! Moving to be near the kids may not be the best move, but I certainly don't want what I see around me.
Have any of you made this move? Would you? Just wondering what your experience has been.
We are still having gorgeous weather, so we went to the beach this week, and a grocery store grand opening. This chain has the best of the best. In this particular set-up, they have lots of items not found even in their regular stores. Bought some yummy stuff--No Vegamit here, Cynthia!!
I also won Nancy's- of Bountiful Heirlooms- give away. Thank you again.
Finally bought the fabric for the diaper bag I'm making mom, and for some diaper cover. Finished making a couple nursing covers, all of which I will get pics of on this blog.
You can hold me to that promise.
So, what's been going on in your studio?
Blessings,
Linda

When my baby was almost 2, I moved to the same city my parents lived in. It was so nice for her to be around her grandparents. We stayed there until she was about 9 years old and then started moving. She was able to get to know her grandparents and they were able to be around her before the age when she didn't want to hang around "old" people. Now, when her grandmother comes to visit - they can really enjoy their time together. (My Dad passes 7 years ago) I say go for it!!
