i made it!!

Hey sweet friends!!  Just wanted to let you know that we made it!  The move was LONG and soooo CRAZY and soooooo stinkin' hard.  Moving is the pits.  I'm totally exhausted and am so tired of dirty, yucky filth and other people's messes and hotels and dryers breaking and scrubbing floors on my hands and knees and couch legs breaking off and my favorite tables' leg breaking off...grrrrrrrrrr.   

The good news is that once I get through all this disgustingness...we will have a nice clean home that I can have fun decorating.  Yes, I am trying to find the bright spot people:):):)

Thank you for all your emails and comments!  I've had NO access to email and the only reason I am writing this now is because I'm "borrowing" someone's signal in my neighborhood!!!   I feel so lost without my computer you guys!!!!  My cable/internet is not being hooked up until the 14th!!!!  double grrrrrr.  

More good news is that my parents are arriving tomorrow to help us!!  YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! 
So...I'll catch up with you all as soon as I can!!  I just wanted you to know that we are alive and in Illinois:):):):)

Love and miss you all!!!

YEAH!! Glad that all the ickiness is behind you! :) From what I hear, you are in for an incredible fall!

I sent your toadstools and a little something for the boys @ a week ago. I called and checked with the post office before I sent it that the box would be forwarded if it needed to be. I didn't get to put confirmation on it though because the PO was closed, but I hope it gets there soon!

Enjoy your new home! :)

Moving is the worst.. I know. But the bright side is a new beginning which affects every other part of your life and so thats a good thing (as Martha would say..hehe). And the decorating bit can be fun:) Enjoy your parents company and take a break here and there!

Glad you made it Jenn! I know all about the moving blues and all that come with it. Having your parents there will make it all better.

Hey Jenn, Glad all is good and you guys are all moved in! I know how hard that is. Lots of work and no rest for days. But there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. I promise.

Glad the parents are there to help. Any help is always needed in a time like this.

Stumbled on your blog by accident. Great work, can't wait to see more when you open your etsy shop. We just moved too and I have a four year old. Yes, moving is ridiculous. Good Luck with your unpacking and settling. Anna

Hi Jen,

I was just checking to see if you made it to Illinois yet. Sorry that it's been a rough move. I can't imagine how difficult it would be to do that. Well, let me know when you get all settled in.

Take care, Deb
