and all that was left… a pile of crust!

doesn’t it feel that way sometimes!
after the whirlwind of school mornings!
kids up…
breakfast eaten…
teeth brushed…
lunches made…
kids dressed…
hair fixed…
you KNOW… you get the point…

rush out the door…
to get to school… late (we were tardy today… slip & all… oops)…
to get back home and face the crumbs!
good crumbs though… always find myself wondering how she’s doing
as i clean up the leftovers of the morning!
already missing her!

i think we’re still finding our way in getting with the swing of things…
this back to school thing!
all i know… the house sure is quiet with just one little chickadee around!

doors
so with the hubby traveling four nights a week…
it has been a bit challenging getting all “moved in”… or settled… i should say.
you know those TWO person jobs… sure seems to be lots of THOSE…
also seems as though lately there is just NOT enough time to get it all done.
i am starting to understand why they say moving is such a major “life stress”!
reallllly!

there is just SO much to do…
between ordering window coverings… getting the landscaping rolling…
getting the fence installed… ordering furniture… on & on…
it FEELS really slow going!

we DID finally get the extra shelving in our closet…
shoes and such are finally OFF the floor!
can you see the smile on my face!  :)
