Man, this move is ruining my blog!
That's right, we've moved--and I'm living amongst piles and piles of boxes and lots of confusion. And there is extra confusion because the painters are still here (even though they started almost a MONTH ago!) so the piles of boxes are covered with plastic and tarps.
The house i s a complete disaster area, but I'm hopeful that when the painters are done with the kitchen, I can at least set up a base there and make things semi-normal for the kids.
Oh the kids--they STILL haven't started back to school! Which has made the moving ordeal seem so much more chaotic. The school decided to do a huge renovation over the summer that dragged on (and on) so they postponed the opening. But they will return on Monday and hopefully some kind of routine here (that will include blogging!) can be established.
I'll leave with a few blogworthy highlights (well, really lowlights) that I haven't had time to write about:
--The movers were here for over 15 hours!!! Translation: the move was waaaaay more expensive than we anticipated.
--There was a mix-up and we were phoneless/Internetless until a day ago.
--Something I learned: If a box of cocoa powder explodes in a box packed with paperwork and other miscellaneous kitchen items--it's nearly impossible to clean.
--Another thing I learned: I have way too many boxes of cocoa powder.
--We installed a new fence in the yard which the dogs promptly escaped from.
--In my frenzy to catch them, I slipped and fell flat on my back and twisted my ankle in the process.
--We painted the family room purple!
Thanks for being patient with my logy blogging practices. I promise I'll be better soon...
