A new home...

So, I have been preoccupied for the past month or so with thoughts of a new home. After some searching we found what is practically my dream home. It is big (3x the space) and open and brand new!! I a really excited and that has made it hard to be in my current home. The new one won't be done until July so I need to keep that in perspective and keep cleaning and so on here.

On the note, I am working on "cleaning" out my freezer. It is a treasure trove of meals I have been saving for when I "need" them and desserts for when I "need" those. I started the process of stocking my freezer over a year and a half ago as I prepared to go back to work. Now that I am home I kept adding to the freezer faster than I subtracted. The goal is to eat 3 things from either the deep freeze or indoor freezer a week. That could be meat that I bought in bulk, bread that I bought on sale, or whole meals I have in there prepared and waiting.

I am also trying to use up what is in my cupboards so we don't spend $$ moving food. It reminds me of finding a bottle of anise in my mom's cupboard that EXPIRED in 1983 - and this was just last year people!!

I guess I am eating us out of hose and home :)

I haven't stopped crafting so I will be sharing some of those projects at then end of the month.

  1. I know this post is old(er), but just wanted to say how excited I am for you guys and your new house, and I can't wait to see it (when you're ready to have visitors).

    I *dream* of the day that we will finally be in a home of our own...until then, I will live vicariously through you. ;)
