This weekend, everything that could have gone wrong did. We went to clean our new place and it wasn't ready. We spent a few fruitless hours cleaning before things went really south and it looks like we're not moving anymore. (At least not until we get another place sorted out.) It was a nightmare that I'm trying to forget!
<cue happy thoughts, comfort food and crafty projects>
The kids are resilient. They bounce back from anything it seems! All I had to do was mention their queued projects and life was rosy again. :o) I must admit that I felt better picking up the pin box and hearing the gentle hum of the sewing machine as it ate up the fabric. I love sewing. I can't believe I never knew what I was missing until now. While I am waiting to see M's reaction to his new messenger bag, I am more excited over J's 2 dresses. One of them is almost finished - minus the hemming and the buttonholes. I will let you know how the latter turn out as it will be my first attempt.
Otherwise, I am slowly ticking off things to do and planning some fun activities for the kids. M is really into geography for some reason. He found a huge altas book for children filled with pictures of animals and resources on each continent. Being an opportunist, I have seized the moment and we are learning about the continents! It's not really work for him or me, so we enjoy ourselves. D has promised to get him a globe once we get settled.
And so, we start again in trying to find another place to make our home. A few prayers would be mightily appreciated!
