We're finally online here in the house! No phone service yet -- I had it for about an hour last night and then something went wrong . . but after so many days of no cable, no internet, no phone, no cell phone, and one day without even a car, we're counting our blessings today. Leslie said she had been starting to feel like Laura Ingalls Wilder. I reminded her that Laura spent most of her days helping her mother around the house -- and she dropped that comparison pretty quickly.
The movers came Monday morning. After a beautiful warm sunny weekend, they started moving in our stuff in 41-degree rainy weather. We were all pretty miserable. But they did get everything in and I've been unpacking for the last three days. I've broken off all of my fingernails, my head is spinning, and my feet are aching. But it's starting to look a little bit like a house someone actually lives in. And this afternoon, I picked up groceries, finally, so we can eat real food again!
I drove to Nebraska City this morning to hand the girls off to Vicki, Keith's sister. She's taking them on to Lindsborg to stay with their grandparents for a few days. I'm all alone. Wow. It's been a LONG time since I've been all alone! And when Keith gets back from his business trip tomorrow night, we'll be all alone TOGETHER. After living in separate states for two months, THAT'll be a treat!
Thank you to everyone who has been leaving comments or emailing me about the blog. It's great to know people are reading! I'm insecure like that, you know. "What if I wrote a blog and nobody read it . . .?" :)
