Judy: I am really excited for you and the family. I can hear the excitement in your post and it's very contagious! Hopefully the house has a fire place and you can look forward to many a cozy evening.
Yes. We will return to home to CA tomorrow (Weds) slightly exhausted as we've rested a little on these last couple of snowy, cold days inside. We've gotten stuff put away and cleaned up. So all we have to do tomorrow is pack, vacuum and straighten up and walk out. Then it will be ready for us to just walk back into next time we come. Gotta get a washer and dryer though...
Thanks so much Yetta! We are excited. DJ likes being able to have a bedroom and a separate "office" area he can use to focus on school work while inside. It seems to help him feel like he does as he is on campus and goes to specific areas away from his dorm to study. We do chuckle when he walks into the kitchen or listens to a lecture and goes into the kitchen and makes a sandwich or is in his small group team and discussing their small group project and he wanders throughout the empty living room. We wouldn't be surprised if he decides to do next semester from CO virtually instead of CA!
uuuhhh.... It's too late. I've only been at it for a month and I'm hooked and obsessed. I may not stay up that late at night, but my housework and quilting is being neglected. How dare DH expect dinner to be on the table when he gets home? I haven't found much on my mom's side. Both her parents came over from Austria/Hungary just before WWI. But my dad's side is a treasure trove of info. Fortunately several folks have done lots of research and submitted it to Ancestry.com so I'm finding all sorts of interesting things. One of my greats sold horses to General Braddock under George Washington. I'm also surprised I'm from a long line of Quakers and they were good about documenting just about everything. I have a long way to go! I did find a first cousin that I used to play with, but they moved to AZ When I was 7 and haven't heard from since. It was so fun to contact her. Sadly, we are the last two on that side of my family. I sure wish I would have asked my parents or grandparents more about our family history. I have been printing off tons of stuff (wow--the price of ink cartridges has gone up!) so I can sit and go over. It takes me forever to scroll and click and I also know that if the computer crashes, I'm safe. I understand your passion!
Wow, Judy! Culture shock! Sounds like you were busy!!! "busier than a one legged gall in a butt kicking contest" I had to LOL! :P <3
Can hear the excitement of the adventure in your writing.
FYI regarding warm boots, most of them don't have good arch support and some don't have much support at all.
Lynne, there are places that can refill cartridges. You might just need to research to see if yours is refillable, and who offers this service near you. I get mine refilled for my HP printer at my local Costco.
Suze, any update on your sister and parents? When we had active fires in our state I got my stuff together… Literally. We had found a strong box at a thrift store that I think is fire proof. We filled it with all our important papers and some cash and passports etc. I also made a list of what would need to be taken out of the house, and then organized it by priority so that we can start at the top of the list and work our way down depending on how much time we had to evacuate. I also decided which quilts I would take with us, and put some of my mom‘s jewelry and some other keepsakes into a duffel bag that I can grab quickly.
Burrr....it's cold in Arizona! We lit a fire in the fireplace last night, curled up with a quilt and watched Mr. Mercedes on Peacock. All we needed was hot chocolate.
