Back in the Saddle?

We finally got everything out of the old house and into the new house. FINALLY! I was shocked at how much we threw away that should have been discarded or donated when we were in the old house....and we still have more to go. I have a donation box going as I unpack. It was weird looking at the old house completely empty. I have no idea how we got 5 people into that place--it is really small, even completely empty! And to think we were there for 11 years!

I have discovered that I really am a creature of habit though. We have changed a lot of our routine and it really has me off guard. We can't find everything, it took forever to get them to connect the phone-which meant no Internet...etc. It was a little unnerving. No, it was completely unnerving. And the animals are not sure either.....One of the cats walks from floor to floor calling for someone. I'm not sure who since we are all accounted for. Another cat has not ventured outside my son's closet since we brought him over. He has this wide eyed meth monkey look....I am looking forward to getting back to normal..or whatever version of normal we had before. Oh well, the only thing constant in life is change.

On the creativity side, I have been looking through several books to get some ideas for quilts. My oldest is going to be moving to Iowa in less than a month, so I would like to make him something to take with him. Jo-Ann's crafts had a 50% off coupon for fabric this week, so I picked up 5 yards of a really interesting Kanji print. Like a lot of kids right now, he is into anything Asian. I had snagged a couple of the 50% off coupons and payday is a t the end of the week, so I'll have to pick up more on Friday. I am going to have to take out my sewing machines and get something started soon. I guess that is the nice thing about this place--there really is more room.

I guess it is time to head to work! That is my only normal routine right now!

Good coffee and great friends to you and yours!
