June 27, 2008



I used to sit in my pajamas until 2:00 p.m. and then have a shower.

My husband surprised me with a new car a couple of weeks ago. A V70 Volvo Wagon. I have waited 7 years for this car, as well as a '71 beetle he had been working on for the past four years - but couldn't work on it the last year and 1/2. So I had him sell the bug car - as it wasn't what I wanted. ('67 cherry red convertible) But anyhow, the new car gave me some new life and maybe your new house give you yours.

Best of luck!

Whoo hoo!
Thank you so much. Good luck with all the packing. Look forward to your full time return!

I just found your blog today -- thanks to Musings of a Housewife. I've spent the better part of this morning reading your posts since February. My brother was killed in a car accident in Spetember. All I can say that while our losses are different, I relate more than I probably want to admit (especially about feeling alone, Grief Expiration dates, having a good and hard life at the same time, and losing my faith). Thank you for your honesty.

Good luck with your move!!!


You haven't started packing yet!? Wow, that takes courage! I was fortunate enough to have a removals company that packed for me (apart from the really personal stuff that is!) and they were very quick - all crockery wrapped in paper and neatly stacked - it was great, I would definitely recommend a company that can do that for you!


I completely understand waiting until close to the end to pack. For some reason I did better under extreme pressure. Good luck getting things done this weekend.

May the Force be with you :)


Love your post at MOAH - you may have inspired me to resurrect the ole blog... Maybe I'll be in the market for a new look :)


Get packing lady! ;o) I was packing up as the movers were hauling boxes out last year when we moved! Best of luck with the move!


After reading the comment about you not cooking and your husband not cooking, I was thinking-well, how do they eat?? Thanks for clarifying.

I'm missing you already! Good luck with your move.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new house, especially the tub. You are probably more organized than you think. With everyone pitching in, it should go smoothly...good luck.


I should send my hubby over to your house, he'll have you packed in no time.
He packed us up so fast when we moved I was mad because I had no idea where anything was until I opened the boxes.

You have lots of friends Beth, if you need help let us know.


Good luck with the move!! Guest bloggers are fun, plus you find new blogs to read!

Who needs a oven...not I. I can cook anything in the microwave.


Good luck with your move. that is not something that I ever would look forward to.

It must be difficult to have this big change at this time in your life. Keep on keepin' on.


ENJOY the craziness...once you get rolling, you won't be able to stop. It's so exciting! I can't wait to see updated pics esp. regarding the outdoors. I can't wait to see what you do. ROFLMAO about the comment of the oven. Tee hee. Thanks for the laughs today...I need them over here. I'd explain but not sure you'd want to hear even though I know you'd completely understand. It's been a kleenex day!


Woot! Thanks for this great contest, I'll email you my email.

Big congrats on your new home, looking forward to seeing lots of pics!

May your new place bring you reasons to feel happy!


I am visiting for the first time. I found you on Jo-lynne's blog. I just started a blog last week and after reading a few of your blogs, I am so impressed with how open you are. I'm going to hopefully try that approach with my blog. Good luck with your move. I'm sure I will stop by again.

Get packing girl. Good luck with the move!! I'm so completely jealous. I wish we were moving, too.

And since you don't need it...you can buy me a new oven. Alright! Thanks! :D

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt

No way! We're moving on Tuesday, too! You should SEE our house. Erm, no you shouldn't.


You may not need an oven, but you DO need window coverings. Unless your plan to "welcome" yourself to the neighborhood involves giving your neighbors a little show. 'Na mean? Bow chicka bow wow. ;)


What is it with the words pee and poop?? They laugh and snicker whenever they are mentioned and jeesh throw the word toot in there and it's the end!! kids:-) Hope the moving goes well and it will seem like an eternity until you're back "online"...


As long as you have a microwave who needs an oven!


I'll order your pizza for you if that would help! (I know, I know, don't be crazy of course its not too much)


Oh happy packing...when it hits you that you actually MUST pack!! So excited for y'all....

Adventures In Babywearing

I can't wait to read what your hubby might have to say!



Congrats! I am so insanely jealous!

Cannot wait to see the pictures!


I'm a horrible procrastinator when it comes to packing so I understand how crazy panicked it is over there right now. Good luck!!
