Still trying to get it together
We finally managed to get the master bedroom painted. Dang! Who would paint a room brown? It took 3 coats of antique white eggshell to cover those brown walls and 2 coats to cover the white ceiling. The waterbed gets set up tonight - after Troll gets home from working on his day off. We'll have a bed soon!!!
We are full steam on school. The girls are enrolled in a choir at church, CCD classes, the homeschooler handbell choir, a co-op for Lancaster County home educated kids, they're loving archery, and they will be enrolled in a stroke improvement swimming class for homeschoolers soon. We are also signed up for several lectures at the local library. We attended a lecture last week on Benjamin Franklin - given by Richard Rosen. We loved it - a mixed crowd attended and my girls were only 2 of 3 kids in the audience - but this guy was great and they were fascinated by his presentation. I was, too!
My garage is still full of boxes that haven't been unpacked. I can't find my favorite Pyrex measuring cup - or my favorite set of mixing bowls. They're in there somewhere...
I found a job!! Troll, the girls, and I were strolling around window shopping and I was just saying to Troll, 'Where am I going to find a job that wants someone only 1 night per week?' Lo and behold - a help wanted sign - only 1 evening per week. They hired me on the spot and I love it so far. Better than chasing the crack-heads and fighting with the brothas and sistas cum attitude down at the corner store in the old neighborhood. It was getting bad down there with several threats on my life. lol. Just punks, but they sure do like trying to put the fear into you.
In short - it doesn't feel like home yet but we're very slowly getting there.
