Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness

Cabin Fever



Cabin fever, we have it!!!!

They still haven’t moved our 2nd room closer to this one. Apparently they only have so many double rooms. SIGH….. At least there’s an elevator. LOL


Here are some of the things we have done this week to try to keep the cabin fever at bay!


Park April 2013


On Tuesday we went to a park that is near the house we are trying to get. We put in an application yesterday. Wish us luck!!!!!

This park was great. Not only did it have a great playground, it also had these huge rocks to climb all over. Better still, the park is right beside a library and a recreation center!! WOOO HOOO!!!!



Art Museum  010 Art Museum 002




This morning we went to the art museum. Like Richmond’s, it was free. Unlike Richmond’s, it was TINY!!! They have none of the masters but they still had some lovely pieces.



Art Museum 025



After the art museum we went across the street to a very cool park. It is one of the largest wooden parks that I have ever seen! Even the big kids got into it! LOL πŸ˜‰


I think we are in for it this weekend, though…. Hopefully we can keep finding new stuff to do to keep from going completely stark, raving mad!!! LOL Β There’s only so much TV the kids can watch (especially with only PBS and Cartoon Network) and only so many video games they can play…. They kept out the 2 DSs, 1 PS3, 1 PS2 and the PSP. Right now one is playing PS2 down in the 2nd room while one is reading, 1 is playing a Legos game on my iPhone and the other is playing a spelling game on my Nook in this room! LOL Β I don’t know WHAT we would do without all of the gadgets!! I brought a crate of books for myself! πŸ˜‰ Too bad we only have the one laptop. There’s always a scuffle over it!

We are still doing some school work and Deanna admitted to me today that she is glad of it, it’s something else to DO! LOL

    There has to be a link for the city with things to do. I looks so green there wow! I am really hoping you get a house soon. Hugs

  2. I hope you get that house. But I gotta tell you, my kids could live under a rock for a year as long as they have their laptops and game systems.

  3. BLess your heart.. I know this is rough!!! Sending prayers that you get the house soon, and get moved in and settled..[Miss your sewing tutorials, ha].. Hope you get to watch the British sewing bee soon.. It is so good.. There was 4 shows this year.. and they are going to do it again in 2014,so I have heard.

    • Thank you, Judy!!!!! ❀ I am hoping we will hear about the house within the next day or 2. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
      I just finished watching the first episode!! LOL I love it!!! The more sewing shows like that, the better!! πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for showing everyone it was out there!

  4. I hope the house comes through for you! I think you’re doing a great job of keeping the kids busy. Electronics save us all sometimes. We lived in a hotel for almost a month between moves..I feel your pain. Sending prayers though…something wonderful is on it’s way for your family; I just know it πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, Michele!!!!!!! πŸ˜€
      We did this once before for a month. LOL Jacob was 12, Joshua 10, Deanna 9 and Cailey was 2 (Colin would be born the following year.) It was definitely harder the first time even with the adjoining rooms. We had less electronics and horribly hot and rainy weather. BLECK!!!!
      Hoping this time isn’t as long!! πŸ˜‰
      THANKS, again!!!!
