How do you like your new home?
Thank you, I love the new place!
There are some amazing windows w/ great views and I feel safe for the first time in a long time. We have more space here, which is great. Can't Wait to decorate for Christmas!

Good to see you! I know what you mean about missing your little ones when they start school. I was always the same way with my kids when they were little. In fact that lyric from, "It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas" where it says, "and mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again"? Nope, not me, not at all!!! I loved every single second of my kids being out of school for the holidays and summer break as well. I dreaded when they had to return back to school. We always had so much fun when they were home!!!
I also remember how parents got all emotional sending their kids off to school for the first time and I didn't quite get it but I never criticized them for it, I just didn't get it. My daughter, who is the oldest started kindergarten and I was actually okay with it, I still had my son home and very busy with him. With him being the youngest, he started kindergarten and I was just fine all the way to school. We dropped him off and I started crying! It just seem to come out of nowhere. He looked at me and said, "Mom, you can go now, I'm okay". lol..
Lol, my eldest was the same, I thought she would cry and be upset at me leaving her but when the teachers opened the door to let them in she just said "bye mum, see you when you pick me up!!!" Id gotten all worked up for nothing lol!! x
I enjoy them being at home, love doing activities with them or just having trips to the park! x

Hey seawaters, No uniform is quite cheap really, can pick up some tops and trousers for just a couple of pounds each! I buy the sweatshirts from school as they have the school logo on and they cost about £9 (about $14 i think?). Hope your well xx

Already starting the 2nd week of 2013.
We are moving right along.
So is our count:
Days to the Season: 309
Days to Christmas Day: 351
I'm sure you will note that we are already down to single digits to Milestone #1, the 300-day Season mark.
Scarcely over a week away!
Steadily warmer as the days progress.
In fact, the weather service now says we could reach 70 degrees by Sunday. Won't that be nice!
(Once Christmas and New Years are passed, I get tired of cold weather rather quickly!)
We show 35 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.
You have a Terrific Tuesday Today, OK?
May the Calendar Keep Bringing Happy Holidays to You

Yes, I am so excited to be here! It's surreal, still pinching myself.
I love that barn so much, it's very symbolic to me. My family is @ an hour & a half away, Adrian's too. My sister came up on Saturday to help me unpack, what a big help she was! We are getting close, I think the end is in sight.
Hope you had a great first day back!! Is the infusion helping? I kept thinking @ you throughout the day. Xo
Oh, I took the picture of Adrian/Elvis today. He found his sunglasses while unpacking & decided to have some fun w/ them! He crAcks me up.
