Sorry I haven't posted in so long. I have been feeling overwhelmed and the blog has suffered.
We have had sickness - strep, ear infections, fevers, coughs, etc. Everything but vomit (!) and everyone was affected.
My dad had an accident at work and spent over a week in the hospital.
We put our house on the market and put a contract on one we saw back in December. I have spent more time decluttering, clearing out, throwing away, straightening and cleaning than ever before. Funny thing is that I am LOVING it. I have never been a "good" housekeeper, but this has forced me to change. I have found that without all the unnecessary stuff hanging around, it frees me up to enjoy more things. Like reading, taking walks, cooking, playing with the kids and crafting - all things that I would put off until I had more time.
I will try to post a little more often. Thanks for hanging in there!
