Thanksgiving in our home was good. Very good. Liberty came, we made appetizers and fried a couple turkeys, and it was sheer chaos and such a mess. It was normal, for the first time in a year and a half. My kids were all under one roof. I mopped the floor half a dozen times […]
Things have hit the harder stage… trying to figure out how where to put things that have no obvious home. Pitching things has become my favorite past time. The piles of boxes we’ve burned has been a bit of triumph each time. The struggle to walk through the house is much eased, but we have […]
Done. And just beginning.
My house is wrecked. My degree of overwhelm is high. Just do the next thing. So, I took Pierce to meet our new pediatrician today. Refilled his meds, all the while hoping he doesn’t have to finish this bottle. The ped is going to call neurology in St Louis and make a referral, while trying […]
There’s work to be done, but it’s here.
After a three day whirlwind trip to South Dakota, we are back home with a full horse trailer and moving truck and our storage units there are empty and keys returned. All of those things, along with anything that has been left at my parents, is all here. Littles has been unloaded, but it’s here […]
Lachlan: 13 months.
Lachlan is starting to talk more and more. I caught a cute video of him the other day. He’s becoming a joy – such an improvement from his early months.
We spent the night in the new house for the first time last night, 13 days after we bought it. We lack most of our furniture, only the kids rooms are finished with paint, and there’s so many projects to finish. But it was getting colder at night in the camper and I was over […]
Making it a home.
I have had so much to say but don’t have internet connected yet at the house and our phones don’t have signal at the house. It’s delightfully remote. But, there’s never time to write when we’re in town. So… here’s a post, written Sunday evening 10/9, to be posted when I get to town next. […]
Soon. Very soon.
We’ve been feverishly looking at houses. We’ve put so many miles on Eden’s poor little car it’s not even funny. We’ve driven across central Missouri so many times. On Monday, we made plans to see another property outside Jefferson City. At the last minute, the realtor we’d been somewhat displeased with anyway cancelled on us. […]
Charlotte Serenity: 12, and a little update.
Charlie turned 12 today. It seems crazy that my kids are all getting so big. #5 is nearly a teen! I didn’t treasure the years of the littles as much as I should have. Charlotte chose monkey bread for breakfast, and made it herself. We had zuppa toscana for supper, and angel food cake with […]
The kids have done a ton of fishing this month. They’ve not caught so many, but it’s been a lot of fun trying. (And a good bit of mud in the one spot!)
