We're Here!

A week ago today we arrived with "all we own" packed inside our two cars. After selling our previous home, packing up, and treking all the way up north, we are finally getting settled in our temporary rental home. The bare essential furniture arrived last Wednesday to get us by until our home is built. Hubby left on Saturday for his "day" job down south ... it finally is hitting our youngest son with Down syndrome that daddy is away. I've been trying to juggle getting settled, taking a test for a new drivers license, finding new insurance coverage, getting a library card, etc. and stocking the fridge and pantry with some comfort foods. Daughter #1 got a job the second day we were here at the CDA Lake Resort ... she just happened upon a local job fair and took advantage of the opportunity. Daughter #2 is busy making friends and plans to apply for a summer job. My "to do" list is long ... but I have checked off quite a bit already. Boy, going from a 3100 sq. ft. home to a 1400 sq. ft. home has cut down on my cleaning time!!!!!! I LOVE IT! Tomorrow our cable TV and house phone will be turned on ... Little Nathan has missed watching Rachel Ray on the Cooking chanel. As soon as the DSL is hooked up, I'll be posting some pics of our journey. Peaceful Dreams
