I can't believe it has been 10 days since I posted here, but then again I can. The few weeks after a move are always chaotic. There is the unpacking to do, all sorts of phone calls to make to switch things over, etc.
We have been in the new house about a month and a half, and so far things are going wonderfully. We are nearly done unpacking. The biggest things left for me are the craft things. The kids will be helping me move the boxes to the basement or inside the house so that I can unpack them (I can't lift them). This is where I will be doing most of my crafting/sewing, once I get everything in it's rightful place.
There is a lot more stuff put away since these photos were taken nearly 2 weeks ago, and I will post updated photos once it is done (hopefully this week).
We have also been busy "running the roads", as my mother calls it. My grandmother took a bad fall a few weeks ago, and spent nearly 2 weeks in the hospital, so I went several times with my mother over there. And now that she is home, but not fully recovered (they found out she also had pneumonia and a kidney infection....not good for a 93 year old with health issues), I have been spending a lot of time going to my mother's to help out. It isn't far, about 5 minutes, but when it happens in the middle of the day, it kind of puts a halt to whatever I was doing. I don't mind though, because my mother has done so much for me over the years, it is a blessing to me to be able to help her.
I have also been driving my daughter Samantha to a town 20 minutes south of us, 4 days a week, so she can catch the bus to college. She went for her driver's license the other day, but failed the written test. We will try again the end of next week. Most of it was caused by nerves.
So that is a short synopsis of the chaotic life we have been leading. I hope to have things settle down in the next week or so, and be able to post more on our homekeeping activities and our homeschooling.
