I’m Still Alive!! ;)


SHEW! My goodness! What a week!! I have been super busy trying to get the house sorted. I have come to the conclusion that we have too much stuff…. Especially toys… LOL

I have 2 rooms left to finish, the toy room and my sewing studio/library. Right now that room is so full of boxes and shelves that you can barely move through it…..  Hopefully I can change some of that today.

I have a few more pictures to share. Let me see if I can find them. LOL

 

 

 

 

This will be my sewing studio/library. ;) Right now it looks like this –

 

 

I am thinking about painting my desk a navy blue. Well, that is IF the paint made it this far… LOL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My walk-in closet. It is now completely full…. LOL

 

 

 

 

 

Well, gotta run!!! TOOOOOO much to do today!!! Anyone want to come and help???? LOL

 

The Ramblings of a Half Crazy Person


Soooo…. Jacob got a job today. He starts tomorrow. That’s good. BUT last night was his last night under our roof. He will be back tomorrow evening to get all of his things and move into his new place with his friend. My heart is broken. I can’t believe it. I mean, I knew it was coming… But that’s my head, not my heart. It’s realllllly going to hit hard tomorrow when he comes to pack up.

 

We now have appointments with 4 different moving companies. They will be coming out to give us estimates on moving us. Did you know that some of them offer CLEANING services???? Oh, yeah, I am ALLLLLLLL over THAT!!! LOL

We will be sending in the deposit for our house on Friday. Here are a couple of pics. I think these were taken a long time ago because I am almost certain one of those walls was painted red….

 

Living room

 

 

This room will be the sewing room/homeschooling room/library. The Hubby THINKS it will be his office… Umm… I don’t THINK so! He can have the garage!!! LOL I am SUPER excited to have a room for all of that!! :) I wonder if I can fit all the bookshelves in there… Probably not….. LOL

 

One of the three bathrooms. I believe this is the one off the kitchen. It only has a shower, not a tub.

 

Another of the bathrooms.

 

The dining room.

 

There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom has 2 walk-in closets!!! Yes! 2!!!

The girls will be still be sharing a room. Cailey wouldn’t be able to do without Deanna. ;) Joshua will still have a room of his own. Colin will still be sleeping in our bed BUT the 4th bedroom will be a playroom!!!! No more toys all over my room!!! WOOO HOOOO!!! No more stepping on Legos in the middle of the night!!! YIPPEEEE!!!

There’s also a large laundry room. That will be nice. We have a tiny one right now. There’s a cat door leading from the laundry room to the garage.

It has a gas stove, which I have never used before. I am a little anxious about that. I remember having one when I was little and my mom would tell me over and over to stay away from it because it would blow up. LOL Yeah, I’m a tiny bit anxious…..

The house has a nice foyer and the sewing room/homeschooling room/library opens off of it. There is also a door that lead from it to the living room.

I love that it has the vaulted ceilings and TONS of windows!! There are 3 different sets of french doors!! I might need some more curtains. LOL

There’s a brick floor in the dining room and a stone floor in the kitchen. Pretty cool.

Tonight for supper we had a turkey! LOL We are trying to use up everything in the deep freezer.

Just over 2 wks and we will be Georgia bound. Gosh, I hope our old van will make it! Good thing that we have friends and relatives on the route down!

Well, the tooth is still acting up but is is somewhat better. I’ll take what I can get!! I have still been sketching like crazy! I have filled up almost 2 whole sketch books! I’ll have enough stuff for at least 5 collections before this tooth is all better! LOL If I didn’t sketch like crap I would show you a few…. ;) I have soooo many more projects floating around in my head!! I want to go to Goodwill and find some sweaters to work with. I would like to make Cailey a few sweater dresses. She has one sweater that I LOOOOVE. Unfortunately she has outgrown it. We called it the macaroni and cheese sweater. LOL It looks sooo much like mac and cheese!! I am going to try turning it into a skirt when I get the chance.

I have been looking online at churches in the new area. I think I found the one we will try first. They have youth meetings twice a week and children’s groups twice a week. That would certainly help the kids make friends quickly!

There’s a sewing group that meets once a week at the library. I am really looking forward to that!!!

 

Anyway….. I need some cheering up! So, here come the funny pictures and uplifting sayings!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am putting all my trust in the Lord. He will see Jacob through this. He will see me through this. He will see our family through this move.  I will rely on Him fully.

 

 

 

Georgia on My Mind


We are home. My goodness what a trip. Down and back in less than 36 hours…. We got in around midnight after leaving at 6 pm Thursday. I hate marathon driving. I was so stiff and sore after getting out of the van. My hands were almost in a permanent claw from gripping the steering wheel for so long! LOL

The job interview went extremely well. They reallllly want The Hubby to sign on with them. They didn’t talk numbers, though… They want  The Hubby to give THEM a figure…. So, right now The Hubby is thinking about it all. He did let them know that we would need them to pay for relocation.

He still has another offer from a different company also in GA. This one is more in the Atlanta area. The Hubby really likes the guy that he has been talking to from that company. But he isn’t sure that he would love that job. BUT we do know that they were offering at least $75,000 a year for that one. Definitely something to consider!

It’s just all up in the air. I keep praying for Him to show me His will. That’s all I know to do. Pray for His wisdom to show us the way and help us make the right choice.

Here are some pictures that I took during the trip. As usually Deanna wouldn’t let herself be photographed. :/ Both of the older boys stayed here. I was a little nervous about leaving them but since they are 19 and 16 AND we weren’t going to be gone long, I figured it could be a learning opportunity… LOL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do have some sewing going on. Right now I have an almost finished Halloween skirt for Cailey out of Casper fat quarters (there will be a tutorial for that). Then I will be making the Snoopy costume for my friend’s son. Then I will be making costumes for the Cs. THEN I want to make this-

McCall’s M6387

What do you think????

Then it will be time to start on Thanksgiving and Christmas themed things…. And a few presents…. ;)
