Getting there

Things here are moving along. Not as fast as I would like for some things and way to fast for others. We've been busy getting Bear ready for homeschooling. I sent out our letter of intent today . As soon as I get the paper work back I'm off to see Vikki. This way she can help me sort things out. At some point we'll get together with all of the other homeschoolers in the area. Now that homeschooling is under way I have to get a handle on the other chores we do. I've had to re work alot of stuff . Hopefully with some tweaking we'll get into a new routine and that routine will keep things rolling along.

The for sale sign is up and we've been getting calls. If it doesn't happen right away that's OK. We are holding firm on our price because we could if we had to stay here. Things in the house are tight ( I don't have a clue where we'll put a Christmas tree this year lol) but with some organizing we'll be OK.

The kids.......... well Sissy and Mr. C have gone down to North Carolina for a week. One more vacation before they head upstate to collage. This weekend I took them to my favorite yard sale to pick up the odds and ends they needed. And good thing we did they were having a blow out sale $5.00 a bag. Mr C finally got a TV for his dorm room. Sissy pick up all of the little odds and ends that she needed for her apartment. I picked up some cute Christmas ornaments , books , and a discovery channel planet earth CD ROM for Bear. Needless to say we got 5 bags of stuff lol. When they get home we'll start packing. Buddy and his girlfriend Miss T are going to Florida ( with her parents) on Thursday . They are coming here tomorrow to help us redo Bear's room, yes again lol I have a problem lol lol . We hope to make Bear's room more functional. It's funny to watch the older kids work on his room. They want things to be just so for their little brother.

In the house........ Well besides cooking cleaning and laundry it's pretty much the same : ). The big shop is coming up this weekend. Bear and I have been working on the list. I've been having him write stuff down for me , he really likes it , and hopefully his handwriting will start to improve. I 'm hoping to find more seasonal fruit to dry and or can. I need to make granola and short bread cookies too.

On the crafty front...... I've been crocheting up a Storm. I finished Sissy's blanket , two ponchos, started a poncho for Miss T, finished a hat and started a scarf. Yesterday I started make dish clothes for Sissy . Than I'll start make dish towels. I'm still trying to work out what to make every one for Christmas. I want to make some sort of ornament . I can crochet something or use the pile of wooden spools I have. I'm drawing a blank lol Any one have any ideas or links they want to share???????

Ok I'm done for now : ) Have a great day.
