My friend Andrea likes to text me and tell me how long it’s been since I’ve updated my blog. She’s funny like that. I know I’ve been quiet on this end for a few month, with the exception of bone throwing post last week in response to Andrea’s most recent blogging silence text. It’s been a busy few months around here. Actually it has felt like I didn’t get much of a handle on 2015 at all and in the end I was just in survival mode.
So here’s what’s up in our world:
1. Joshua has received permission to work remotely. Since he will be able to work from home this means home can be just about anywhere, which is a great thing. We are working on getting our house on the market so that we can sell and move. There have been many things to do to help spruce up the place, like patching and painting. We’ve also redone both bathrooms and the kitchen, so as you can see, we are pretty serious about this. This whole project has taken up tons of our time.
2. School. School always takes a lot of time. Add in music lessons and my days are full.
3. Cleaning. It’s like my kids smell blood. I need things clean and they leave a trail of destruction and the chore chart isn’t helping much. I’m trying to not be grumpy when I see a huge mess in a room I just cleaned.
4. Back to moving, that means packing. I’ve been trying to pack things up day by day, even though we don’t know when we’ll be moving. It’s been somewhat helpful. Toys, clothes, games and books have been mostly packed. There are a few things for reading and playing with though, because I’m not stupid. The Legos have been left out because they wouldÂ play with those all day long if I let them.
5. Oh and this:
