Finally, I finally have a home again; a home where I can unpack all of my things and settle in ... at least for the next three years. It has been a long haul but my life is finally finally getting back to somewhat of a routine, it's a good thing too!
We spent six whole weeks at Happy Acres (AKA the Crayon Box) and we finally got our own home, but more on that later!
For today I would like to show you what I started with at the beginning of last week...
It is slowly coming together, I got my cupboard filled with my material and craft things today. That was a pretty big accomplishment, the kids have as much crafting stuff as I do and that's saying something! I find myself gravitating back toward Lowe's on a pretty regular basis, first for this, and then for this, and today it was for a shelf for my bathroom since I have absolutely no vanity space to put anything like my jar with a hair brush in it on. I also needed the items to put the kids art projects up on their wall from school, I have a pile and they of course want to keep them and admire them for awhile.
So it is happening, I am getting my house put together and we will eventually settle in and make it feel like a home. I will have to say this house is one of those that felt like home even before we had any of our stuff in it, maybe because it has been so long since I have had a home, or maybe it is just one of those that is special and can just make you feel at home.
So tomorrow the goal is shelves and art on the walls! Here's to lots of pounding and screwing and leveling and rearranging and, oh ya! I am going to coffee with one of my neighbors!
