I finished the (final) bathroom tonight. I finally got to cross something off my list! That makes me so happy. 🙂 I didn’t start either blankets though, I was distracted when I wasn’t painting. I looked up housing money for our possible new place we will live and walked around picking up random things, but not one full room. Tomorrow will be better.
I told my Mom and best friend which is a sign I can say it here now – we are moving. Probably next month, dh’s maybe new job should start in January, though the kids and I will be visiting family for awhile which I am so excited about. We get to live next door to my Grandma again, something I so treasured even if when it was happening it didn’t seem like that big of a deal. We get to live with my Dad in his big house and the kids can ride horse and play in his huge yard with their cousins – yay we will be around family again! Then we get to stay with my Mom enjoying her company before moving on to our final place.
All the while hopefully carting at least one large suitcase full of crafty goodness because our travels will last quite a while and how could I go that long with nothing crafty to do! I’m not nervous yet but I know I will be. I have barely started looking into moving because while the kids and I are off traveling, our stuff will have to be in storage at our new home.
Oh and in other news Alice’s learning is growing in leaps and bounds. I know kids are sponges and I’m so glad we started homeschooling early this year. After George’s death I just stopped doing anything teaching wise for at least a month. She still did a worksheet here or there but it was on her own and not of my teaching. We’ve been back to it for a bit and she is reading entire books (the learn to read book series we have), loves math (I’m debating if she is my child because of this love! LOL), wants to learn more “science stuff,” and is excited we are going to travel because she can “do homeschool” in the car. I’m debating having her start a blog – she loves the computer and is familiar with the keyboard though not a typer yet. I’m sure she would love it though.
