Just under the wire

Wow, I'm barely making this post on time this week. Things have been hectic here with the move. We also ended up having car troubles this week and our account has gone into the negative. It's not been a fun week on the financial front. I'm selling my spinning wheel to help us out. And I'm already dreaming of what I'll get when tax time rolls around. :)

Otherwise, things have actually been fun around here. My sister is visiting. She is a champion packer and is being a huge help, even fixing dinner. Plus we're having fun playing board games in the evening. Ethan loves her and she's great with him.

We're almost done with packing and moving. I think we'll get all the smaller stuff done tomorrow. Monday we'll have the truck for all the furniture and will be spending Monday night at the new place. Tuesday will be cleaning. Fun fun.

Anyways, that's what has been going on around here, been a busy week!

An Owl Arrived Today!

And he had a lovely package with him! Ophelia Crookshanks went above and beyond on her kit. I love love love the messenger bag. It fits perfectly, is roomy enough for E's diapers etc., and is just lovely! Here are the pictures!

As you can see, it's a totally awesome package! Thank you, Ophelia! You did a great job and I love everything!

Time if flying...

I can't believe it's been a week since my last post. I almost forgot again this week. Just been busy here. Getting ready for the move, visiting the gym more often and taking care of Ethan, it's just busy a lot. We've been eating out quite a bit the last week or so, though I am still eating veggie (mostly vegan) and watching what I'm eating out. I went to a Stretch and Balance class at the gym yesterday, it's pretty much like yoga. It's an awesome class and I'll be going again. Tomorrow I'm going to try a spinning class. It looks like fun.

My handmade item is coming along. Didn't get it done in time for the June 2nd cut off, but that's ok. I'm really excited to see how it finishes up. Should be nice! :)

Well, not too much else going on now.
