Trying to unpack with a cold

Well what happens when you stress yourself out moving quickly and have sick kids the week before you move?

Why you get sick of course!

I came down with a real dozy. I got exactly two rooms unpacked before I woke up with a throbbing ear ache and pounding headache. The cough has settled in my chest and the headache is finally gone. I am still working on getting better but at least the headache is gone.

The house is lovely! We want to paint the walls, I doubt it will get done before Thanksgiving but perhaps before Christmas... or maybe not.

I hope to have pictures up this weekend. I have to get batteries for my daughters point and shoot camera before I can get any pictures put up here on the blog. I am enjoying the beautiful quiet neighborhood I now live in. We are close to a major city (15 minutes by car) yet in the country. There are trees and fields all around us. I can not wait to be healthy so the kids and I can go for a bike ride to the library.

I hope to be able to post pictures soon and get back to blogging on a more regular basis. Now I must go and rest more.


  1. Congratulations on your move, though it's too bad you're sick. It figures! Hope you are already starting to feel better. :)

  2. I hope you feel good soon and can enjoy making that cute wide porched house your own!

    Responding to your post on my blog. If you have any specific questions about the mattress that has helped my husband with back pain, just let me know. We actually tried the latex foam topper on top the cheapest innerspring in the store and it was very comfortable. We just went with the whole thing because they were getting rid of floor models. Anyway, hope you find something that makes you comfortable. There's nothing like a good nights sleep.
