                                            Where we started from

I had illusions of grandeur, Of posting a daily update on this move.

Thought I would show you what we started with:  

The house was left in a smelly mess.

For now, I will leave you with the before pictures of the kitchen and dining room.

We have a crew there, every day and are a week into all of this.
I thought taking on a project would be good for hubby.

Mixed Emotions

         My violets are doing so well.
          Usually, I don't seem to have 
         much luck with house plants.
          Or any plant!!

I have such mixed emotions about this move.
It is one of those times when you take out
pencil and paper and write down all the good things and a list about the not so good things and compare.
So, I decided to just concentrate on the good.  Those little "what have we done" moments sneak up on me and I need to brush them away.  They usually hit when I am trying to calm down and get some sleep.
I really believe that you bloom where you are planted and right now this is where I have been planted.
So, I hope you follow along with my journey. There might be tears, and of coarse when it all comes together, there will be acceptance.
