This has been a crazy, busy week. Actually a couple of crazy weeks. We’re moving in June to a bigger house! So we had to get our house ready to go on the market, do showings, etc. Everything is settled now though. We’re buying a house with my parents that has an in-law suite. Did I mention it’s bigger? We’re all excited to have a dining room where we can actually move around the table without tripping on something.
I still had time to go online though – one of the way I relax at night – so I still have some interesting things to share with you.
This post makes me wish I hadn’t gotten rid of all my yarn scraps. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll be building up another stash, and then I want to do this.
You learn so much when you become a parent, and I don’t just mean how to change a diaper or give a baby a bath.
While I would prefer a pristine house all of the time, I’d rather have eight children and a house on the untidy side. I don’t want my children to remember me as the mom who drove them crazy making them keep the house clean. I figure I have all of the “empty nest” years to keep the house clean.
This is just so well-written. I appreciate her point on submission. Being submitted doesn’t mean you have no mind or will of your own. You still get to choose how to exercise your mind and will.
So. well. said. Read this – your children do not need to be socialized with their peers. The best socialization is that found within a family unit.
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday (as I’m sure you know). A couple of weeks ago my seven-year-old son went to my husband and asked if my husband could help him fix my laundry table for a Mother’s Day gift. I have a round table that I set my laundry basket on when hanging my clothes outside. Gradually over the years the wooden slats that form the table top have fallen off until there were only a couple left.
My husband took Micah to the hardware store where they were given scrap wood to fix my table. They brought it home, and my husband let Micah help him saw the wood to the right lengths and screw it to the frame. They gave it to me right away since I needed the table – what a sweet son.
I love this…makes me laugh every time – especially the last frame.
What is your best tip for an organized move?
