We are about to be in the process of I can identify. And we're moving from 1300 square feet to 2200 square feet...and I'm about to stand on my head to get there! I need every inch of the new house to store all of the things that we can't store now! It will be so nice to "exhale", as you said! Happy that you are home....have a FABULOUS 4th and enjoy enjoy enjoy your family!!


p.s.when I can "exhale", I can also get back to things that I love like Memory Monday and my quest to be an AFH!


So glad to have you here!
Totally get the missing making stuff. I have been able to do anything since March and I don't like it one bit!
Would love to see you as you are able.


Hey lady... I wanted to give you a few days to settle down, but Sandy and I want to have you over for coffee/tea soon. What does later this week look like for you (Sandy's gone until Wednesday afternoon)?

I'm also going to beg you, publicly, to teach me to sew. I pay in cookies. Or in history teaching. Or both. :)

I know what that "exhale" feels like - been there, done that! It's such a great feeling, isn't it?!

Enjoy your family this holiday weekend. What a perfect time to move back home.

Looking foward to your pictures of your "new" home. The whole time you were in AZ, I never pictured you there in my mind - you were always in your CO home! LOL


Yay! I'm so pleased for you guys! You really do sound happy and relieved.

Good luck with the settling in!
