Bachelor Ben Week 6 And A New City

Lindi here:

Oh, Bachelor Ben--you are cute--but right now you are being duped! By a model no less. I really tried all these weeks to give her some benefit of the doubt, but she's not deserving anymore.
Take Kacie B. and run as fast as you can--run away from the other girls, and take Kacie B. far, far away. You know you want to.
As Nike says---Just Do It!!

A New City

You guys may remember that my son got married last September. Well, he and his bride spent the weekend in Chicago because......they are moving there. They went to find an apartment and jobs. They have neither totally lined up so far, but have a lot of good leads. They plan on moving the end of March.
While this mother hates to see them go so far away, I love that they are doing what they want to do. I love that they have the freedom to do what so many people have a hard time doing--following their dream. I love that they are young enough to want to brave those cold Chicago winters. This mother will be visiting in the summer, thank you!

How do you feel about long distance moves regarding someone in your family?

Lindi Peterson--Happy Endings Are Just The Beginning


  1. You sound very rational Lindi, I wouldn't be! Good thing I have a long way to go before I have to worry about that :) hope it all works out for them :)

  2. I hope they both find great jobs and just love it! It's going to be hard to let them go, though. Call me if you need a shoulder.

  3. Lindi, I know all about those long distance moves. First, I moved from Michigan to Texas ALL BY MYSELF when I was 19. Now, two of my children live a good distance. One a day trip, the other a few days. But I like to think of it as an opportunity to have some place new to visit :-)

  4. Eva--I talked with my son last night and he is SO excited. It's hard not to be caught up in the excitement. I'll be crying like a BABY the day they leave, though. Crying!!

  5. Missy--you KNOW I'll be calling!

  6. Mindy--great advice about the vacationing part. I"ll be calling you, too!
