I am back in Texas. We rolled in last night about 10pm and boy were we glad to be done with driving! I'm telling ya, that is a trip! Overall, the girls did wonderful- no complaining or whining hardly. DVD players in the car were divine inspiration from the Lord :)
My head is full of things and my heart as well, much to write about soon. At the moment, my husband does not have a job in Michigan. I have a lot of mixed emotions about it, which I'll talk about later.
For this week I will first be doing some cleaning and laundry. Then I'm going to hit like a tornado and declutter this house mercilessly. We are also going to switch the living room and playroom and do some painting/decorating, yay! I am giving myself the whole month of May to do this. I visited my husband's cousins who have 9 kids and live in a medium size old farmhouse. There was no clutter. No extra stuff laying around. The kids made a mess, but it took no time to clean it up. I was in awe- especially since they homeschool, have goats and cows to milk, chickens to tend, gardens going, and lots of kitchen work. (sprouting, soaking, cheesemaking etc.) Oh yeah and the mom is pregnant with #10! They also didn't have TV or computer to distract, so I guess that helps :)
Alright, time to bathe the children and scrape something together for dinner. Then it's bedtime for them and I must continue with unpacking etc.
