We are embarking on what we hope will be an exciting year for our family. We are moving to a new (to us) house, and packing up 12 years of memories (and junk, who am I kidding) in our old home, and moving a whole 1.1 miles to our new house. The new house is tucked away and more private than where we currently reside. Everything seems to be moving so quickly now, it's scary. I'm trying to cope with not only packing and cleaning, but keeping my family in some sense of order as we progress through softball games, days of laundry, work, and completing summer employment applications for my eldest daughter. Today, we celebrated the last day of school for the 2009-2010 school year. Next year, my eldest daughter will be a senior in high school. Where did the time go? We have an appointment with the photographer next week for senior portraits. Such an exciting time, and yet, kinda scary too!
During this time, I've been knitting simple projects. It's all I can do to knit some stockinette stitch at the end of the day. I've also taken a hard look at my yarn stashing habits with packing "stuff" for the move. I'm embarrassed to say that I've got yarn hoarding tendencies.....but you all knew that, didn't you? :)
We are all busy, tired, and yet happy. Many days I rely on grace to get us through this. has a funny way of stretching us to our utmost limits, even if the change is for the better. Speaking of change.....I'm off to pack another box or two.
