Getting settled in

Monday, July 26, 2010

It's been waaaaay tooooo looooong! It was a grueling few weeks though, packing up the old house, driving 1,200 miles and unpacking the new house. I am surrounded by boxes (mostly empty ones) and chaos. I don't thrive on chaos. I've been eating, eating, eating. Dang, they have good food down here!! I've also been running tons of errands and trying to make this house into a home. I'm getting there. Baby steps.

I love being here. I have seen my niece and nephew about 3 days a week and I've been able to see my in laws every day. I love them to pieces. I couldn't have done this without them so I live with a grateful heart. I haven't been too homesick yet and I pray the old house sells soon! I'm finally ready to move forward.

I haven't been getting in much excercise. It is so dang hot down here you hardly want to MOVE. The heat index has been between 104-107 everyday we have been here. I guess picking up heavy boxes is enough. For now, anyway. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you are getting settled in and getting lots of cardio if you are finding empty boxes around!! Remember you had to fill those boxes first! Praise the Lord the baby steps are adding up for you!!! AWESOME!! Be sure to stay hydrated in all this heat. Way to go on your positives and counting your blessings!! Above all else, be thankful that you have your family all in one place again and are truly blessed in so many ways. I know you are!!
Praying that your old house sells soon and for any other needs you may have...
Blessings and hugs,

    Glad you are getting settled in. I know, it is too hot to do much outside at all. My poor a/c is running itself ragged!!! Hope you will continue to get things pulled together and it sounds like you are off to a great start. That is wonderful that you have such a good relationship with your inlaws! Sure hope your other house will sell soon.

Take Care,

    Glad to hear that you are getting settled in! I like the sound of EMPTY boxes rather than full ones. Must be fabulous to have your NEW home coming together ! Enjoy !
