in search of a home...

So as I have reported before, my husband and I are getting transferred to Kansas. We're out here looking for a home. We thought we had the perfect place, the woman promised and then reneged on the place. Grrr. So now we're looking again for another place. This is hard. Its tiresome. I don't know how my mom did it so many times with us kids. the older I get the more I realize the strong woman my mother is. If it weren't for her this time, we wouldn't have the good leads we do have. We're searching hard for a home. We're looking at places, but nothing fits. Its either a little older and run down or else its out of our range or there are pets there and I couldn't do that since I'm SO ALLERGIC.

I'm praying for strength and patience. I'm trying to have a good attitude. Pray for me.

long time gone...

So I've been gone a long time from the blog. I have been spending time with my mom, and helping her get healthier. I've also been crocheting various things with no patterns, just because. We have started getting our place packed and gone through so we can be ready for this move. I can't wait for it to be over with. I hate the limbo we're living in right now.

I've been either packing or getting rid of the little chachkis, and burning all my candles down. We can buy more there, we don't have to take these with us. I know they don't take too much space, but I'm like lets  get rid of EVERYTHING we can. So that way we have more space for what we need. And maybe even get a smaller truck since little things add up to big spaces.

I've started a new book with my sister in law and that and spending time with her has become something that is also helping me have something to focus on.

Well, other than that, we finally got our pictures taken professionally. First time in our marriage. We also got to get them made with my mom. The pictures turned out wonderfully.

Well guess I better get back to doing things around the house. There's much to be done.
