The Big Move Part 2

Well, I guess we can say that we have "settled in". Although - there is so much more to do. I am finally realizing that it will take us at least til Christmas to accomplish what I had originally figured would take us a month. That's right folks, I am extremely optimistic about what one (like myself) can accomplish. I am continually learning the lesson that I have limitations, and my family should always have to be dragged into my insane conquests. So, I am activating the skills of planning, resting, waiting, strategizing, doing things one step at a time, etc., all of which are very unnatural for me.

Last weekend we finally got our sprinkler system installed...Yay! Now we have to transplant and till the rest of the yard which will prepare it for sod. Hopefully we will do the sod this weekend ...HALLELUJAH!!! I can't tell you what a pain it is to have a dirt backyard. The boys love it!

I have begun painting the kitchen cabinets. Ug! After making a huge mistake which cost me a day and a half, I'm taking a small break. Thankfully, I am only doing one section at a time.

So much to do, so little time (and energy). But, we love our new home and can't imagine being back on Lewis Ln already. God is SOOOOOOO GOOD!

It takes time, money and energy to get settled/to make a house a home and with kids we have none! Continue loving my nephews in that wonderful way that you do and making great family memories, (kids don't care what the house looks like. I mean after all the love and memories is what we take to heaven. I have to constantly remind myself of this. My house needs some major TCL. I just con't say no to fours kids begging to spend the day at the pool, after all it is summer.

Lot of love...sigh...I miss you all so much. I bet Ev is cruising all around and Sy is keeping you busy with lots of questions.

Keep me updated about Lainie and the baby.
