We're Home!

All of our stuff is moved into our new home! I've spent the whole weekend cleaning, sorting, and cleaning some more. When we moved the boxes that had been in *B*'s parents' basement (with a dehumidifier), we found two whole boxes of moldy belongings! Some of them are clothes, and they will be washed first thing. The rest is kitchen pans/utensils. So to be on the safe side, I'm washing EVERYTHING before we eat off of it. We were very lucky, though, to have my whole family plus *B*'s best friend help us move. Everything went off without a hitch.

The biggest problem, so far, has been food. I have been sick to my stomach for two days now because we haven't eaten anything healthy since we've moved. On Friday, there was donuts and pizza. On Saturday, we had pizza for breakfast and my dad took us out to a greasy food joint. Today, I was served breakfast in bed (so sweet!) of donuts and juice (too sweet!), then we had fast food for lunch, and (ashamed to say it) kix krispy treats for dinner. Tomorrow night, I will be making chicken stir fry with tons of veggies for dinner.

One of the things I'm most excited about is our ability to FINALLY have a three month supply. As they were on sale at the grocery store Friday night, our three month supply started with.......canned yams! I consider them to be both very nutritious and a comfort food that we eat fairly often. I will be cruising those sales to build up our supply. We have an awesome cabinet that stores items on a swinging shelf system that has more shelves behind it. That will be our start. When we can afford it, we will be getting more shelving for the laundry area downstairs.

I get very nervous when I am the only person awake in an area (i.e. here at home). I start making up sounds and seeing things that aren't there. But I know it's all in my head. Right?


  1. Hooray for being moved in! I was jumpy for months after we moved into our house. In fact, it's only in the last six months that I think I've gotten used to it. I used to have dreams that I got lost in our house, too. I guess it's a bit of a shock after living in a tiny apartment.
