Have you ever had so much going on that you don't even know what to write or where to begin? That's kind of where I'm at which is why I haven't attempted it over the past few days. That and trying to live with about a quarter of our stuff which makes living in this state a little more challenging.
So here's the latest update on Busse happenings...
~We moved into the house last Monday after a 3 week stay at a local hotel WITH a swimming pool. Whew! Actually, we are blessed and thankful that it worked out as well as it did.
~On that same day our rental furniture was delivered which consisted of beds, dressers, night stands, lamps, linens, kitchen stuff, etc. Shawn's company provides this because our sea container that is to arrive here could take up to 6 to 8 weeks. Just days after the rental guys set everything up, we found out that our sea shipment will be here this Thursday and Friday. Now I know that sounds very exciting, but at the very same time, it's overwhelming to say the least. Afterall, we were able to fill an extra large container with all of our earthly possessions and it fit (just barely) inside an 18 wheeler basically. Who wants to put away all that stuff? Moi?? No! OK, yes, I want to be all settled and everything, but it's a daunting, exhausting task. I am ever so thankful that I have a hardworking hubby that likes organization and also likes to have all of us feeling settled and happy, and he will do anything to make that happen. So that makes all of this much more doable. Thanks Honey!
~Tomorrow those rental guys get to come back just 8 days later and tear down all the beds, drag out all the dressers, and collect all the nifty little things for the kitchen. And guess what we get to do?
~Move back into a hotel for 2 more days since we will have nothing to sleep on and no coffee maker. Just kidding. My coffee came in the storage shipment that arrived 2 weeks ago. Are you following me here? It's a lot. Oh, and it's a different hotel and I don't know if there's a pool.
~I took my boy, Austin, the 14 year old to the eye doctor today. After dealing with impaired vision for months, he finally let us know that he was struggling to see things at a distance. He's nearsighted and will be getting glasses in about a week. He's really excited about seeing things they way he once did. Like mother, like son. I started wearing glasses when I was in college.
~Said boy started baseball practice tonight for the team he used to play on. I think he felt great being a part of the team again. The others have been enjoying the AWANA program at our church.
~I had the nerve to sign up for a Ladies Tea at church which entails me decorating a table for 8 with my own stuff and inviting 7 women to join me. Did I fail to remember the chaotic state my home is currently in or do you think the new tea set my husband bought me for Christmas begs to be shared? I'm a sucker for a nice tea. And just for the record I never went to a proper tea while living in England. Not once. The English love a good cup of Tetley or Yorkshire, or Morrison's for that matter with milk and maybe sugar, and I enjoyed countless cups of that.
~I need to get to bed, but I had to write, and share, and ramble on about any number of things because I have missed doing so. More than that, I've missed you.
Good night Dear Ones.
