Moving Again Daybook

For today … Tuesday, September 14, 2010 Outside my window … Sunny and mid-60s. A beautiful fall day. I am thinking … about moving this Saturday. Which takes me back to the end of January and this post. Here we go again … Only this move will really be permanent! At last … all we need is some grass! up-close of the stone and landscaping rock I am thankful for … the HUGE surprise our builder gave us last Thursday…

Corners

Corners

There’s not much to look at—the walls are very white and the floors are very beige. And some of the appliances (and other mechanicals, like certain plumbing apparatuses) are a bit temperamental. But it’s clean and bright, warm and safe. And for the next six or so months it meets the need of providing shelter for our family. I’ve been trying not to complain, when I run out of space on the pantry shelf or I can’t find a spot…

Settling In

Settling In

Hi! I’m back =) After one week … We are slowly, but surely, settling into our cozy transitional home. Our move, which took place last Saturday, went remarkably smooth, thanks to generous friends and family members who helped us so much. One friend completely took charge of cleaning our “old” house. Another friend came over to help my husband set up bunk beds and cribs in our “new” house. My MIL watched the kids all.day.long. And some family-friends had us…

There are many emotions that surround moving to a new house. I feel excitement for the blessed opportunity to build a home to accommodate our family’s needs and also provide a space for my mom to be integrated ever so closely into our family-life. When I think of this becoming closer-than-ever to a reality, I can’t help but imagine all that the future holds. And I am excited! Excited for the ways my children will have such a special bond…

The Simple Woman’s Daybook—Moving Edition

For today … Monday, January, 25, 2010 Outside my window … Mid 20s with a chance of snow. It’s been overcast for several days but warmer than normal. After today, though, it’s supposed to get cold. Very cold. Just in time for moving. I am thinking … about moving this Saturday. We are in really good shape—packing wise—but there are still plenty of things to finish up. It is hard to think beyond sorting, packing and cleaning to what life…

Making Progress

Making Progress

Bags to donate: 10 Bags thrown away: 12+ An overflowing recycling bin: 1 For two weeks in a row, we have refilled our garbage bin by the very next day after the trash has been picked up. The same thing happened last week with our recycling bin. (And our recycling is only picked up biweekly! Ugh!) We need two or three bins during this moving process … or a dumpster—LOL. It feels good to purge our house, though. To sort…

An Advent Timeline

Today, we get back into it. Our routines. Normal living. Healthy eating. Ordinary life. And I’m looking forward to it. I still greatly appreciate that there’s one more week of the Christmas season. (Let the Christmas music play! =) But I’m also looking ahead to what 2010 will bring … Before I get too ahead of myself, I would like to share a few posts on my family’s Christmas (finally). This first one goes back just a bit more to…
