A Moving Experience [Personal]

Well, the housing crisis really came home for our family when we found out our former landlord was losing his house to foreclosure. I had been happy that as renters, our stake in the current mess would be limited to matters of home economics, and not to our place of residence. Unfortunately, that turned out to not be the case, and a rather impromptu and unplanned move soon followed.

We're getting settled in now, and as often happens, I see a lot of possibility and happiness in our new home and neighborhood. It was just an expensive and exhausting adventure to get us here! Follow the chaos of boxes, boxes, boxes with the recent (much-needed) waterlogging of our area (paired with an outdoorsy toddler) and things have been a mite rough. I'm glad to say, though, that my files are unpacked, the number of boxes are dwindling, and things are getting back on course. I hope to be posting regularly again by the end of the week. Thanks everyone for your patience!

Glad to hear you are getting settled in. My rule is you have to unpack the last box within one year. Better yet, if you haven't needed it in a year, don't even look at it -- donate it!

Any chance you can get away to Jamboree this year?
