Chrrp chrrp chrrp…
Do you hear that? That’s the sound of the crickets chirping in this lonely cyber space.
In the midst of getting ready to close on our new house (Don’tcha love the sold sign?), I’ve been a busy busy beaver around here and haven’t had much time to post.
We are packing, packing, packing.
Still homeschooling among the boxes. (Hope to backtrack when I get some time and post all the great living World War I books we used!)
It looks so empty with all our books packed up. Sniff sniff…
And painting…can’t forget the painting. It’s easy lunches in the living room so that parts of bunk beds can get painted white on our dining room table (way too cold to do outside!) to be all ready for this wonderful princess space. Can’t wait to show off the final product!
Still to do:
- Pack coat closet.
- Pack bathroom closet.
- Pack kitchen.
- Finish packing scrapbook supplies.
- Clean desk (a.k.a. file the HUGE stack of papers and find homes for random stuff that’s been dropped off here) and finish packing office supplies.
- Finish painting.
And the littles?
They are merrily jumping on beds…with permission this time! We broke down bunk beds (i.e. see painting) and piled all mattresses in one room. They are “camping out” for the next 2 weeks. This makes a great space for daddy, his guitar and our nightly devos!
All the dressers have been moved into the other bedroom along with the toys. So we now have a designated toy space so I have room to pack. At least, that is how it works in theory! I must say I do like having all their clothes in one room. We paired them down quite a bit so all 6 children’s hanging clothes fit in one double closet. It is nice doing laundry and then putting everything away in one space. It makes me think that Michelle Duggar was on to something!
Well, today is no chores day. We had pop tarts for breakfast (Did I mention how we are on the easy convenience meal plan right now? My kiddos love it.) on paper napkins. No dishes. Laundry caught up yesterday. Most packing done. So this morning I will enjoy a cup of coffee and have a guilt-free morning blogging around and pinning stuff to my boards. Oh how I have house love right now!
