Furniture building & organic meat...

I'm still here...

If you follow me on my other social networks no doubt you've heard about what's going on... we're now in Cape Breton and trying to get settled. The train was amazing and I will share photos in an upcoming post soon!!

Now, settling in however, is much easier said than done. The truck still hasn't arrived so we are now 8 days in and are living with next to nothing except what we managed to bring with us on the train. Granted now we do have a couch, a tall boy for Dh & myself and 2 twin beds that we've purchased over the last week. I'm waiting on some new items as well and hopefully they'll come in sooner than later.

I've been snuggling in with Mya each night on her new mattress (which is still on the floor as we have to set up her bed frame this weekend, along with Maria's and ours!), and poor Dh has a single mattress on the floor. Maria has a queen size air mattress to herself. Child #2 is the only one with a brand new mattress *and* bed frame sleeping in style with the cat.

Speaking of the cat, she made it over here like a trooper and the woman who brought her over was simply awesome! I'm so grateful to her and it feels "right" now that we have our girl with us!!

She approves of our choice in furniture apparently as well... she's claimed every single cushion for herself. *wink*

Money has been flying out of our bank account like crazy... ALL that money I busted my ass to earn and save, is almost gone. *POOF* Just like that, vanishing between my fingers, but I knew that would happen. However, we're nearing the end of our savings for the move and it's really time to get income flowing in this way once again! I can't wait to get my sewing area up again, I am to the point where I really miss sewing. I have a few really exciting gigs lined up that I've been offered over the last couple of weeks and people are excited to get on my customs list and waiting for my RTS items to start flowing again! That does my heart good!! Having absolutely no income coming in is more stressful than anything at this point.

Much to dh's chagrin I have a backpack full of new fabric that has arrived to the house since we've been here... ok, I confess, I did a *wee bit* of stress shopping, plus, most of what I've been buying is purple fabric for all my purple fans! I can't wait to cut into this stuff, rather than just fondle and drool all over it!

Dh took the kids to the ocean and they've been to the ocean on their own as well, but I haven't had a chance to get there yet. I've been feeling really weak & run down (very little sleep and very little food will do that to you) so I'm making a concentrated effort to eat more and get as much rest as I can. I hope to take my camera to the ocean tomorrow afternoon or Sunday sometime before Dh and child #2 are gone for the week.

Overall it's been a tough week. I miss my people and I know that settling in and adjusting is tough, but this is sooo very hard.

Yesterday I received a care pkg from my bestie back home and that brought me to tears of course... she's been SO encouraging though, far more than I have felt like being, and deep down I know that I just need to tough it out and wait for everything to fall into place.

Today is a good day thankfully. I don't think I could handle another day like yesterday. All I wanted to do was "go home". It was tough...

I've been busy all day though, and I even managed to stay warm last night and get a nice chunk of sleep. So today the kids & I went to the Cape Breton Exhibition and it ended up being such beautiful weather for a carnival! We had so much fun and it was really nice to just relax and have fun without worrying about stuff that is beyond my control anyway.

If the truck with all of our worldly belongings takes the full 12 business days the very latest we should receive it is next Thursday the 12th. Next week dh and child #2 are gone for surgery so it'll just be me & the girls. I have no idea how I'm going to get the house set up alone but I'm hoping the guys will at least carry the furniture to the correct rooms for me and I'll try to do the rest on my own with the girls.

Tonight I'm going to get the kids in bed early, relax and watch a movie. But first I need to run out for a few things so I'm going to cut this short but I promise that I'll get back to blogging daily again! I think it'll help me get back to some sort of a routine/schedule again which will help me out I think!

On that note have a wonderful evening! :) Thanks for reading!!
