My sister, BIL, and their two kids (8yo and 7mo) have sold their house! They're also in the process of buying another one! The challenging part is that they had to move out on November 30th but won't be able to move in until the end of December. Meanwhile, they're technically "homeless," but not really. We believe that family takes care of family, so we now have seven living together in our house. The categories below will reflect aspects of this circumstance!
Area 1: Weight
Now I can blame my sister for my not losing weight. No? You mean it's not her fault that I am partaking of all sorts of delicious meals? Shoot.
Area 2: Family
As I mentioned above, family does what it can when family members are in need. This has been a golden opportunity for my son and his 8yo cousin to learn to get along better. They're still working things out LOL!
Area 3: Schedule
Despite the upheaval, we are all persevering with keeping housework under control and maintaining the homeschooling. It's been fun having a class with TWO kids in it! It certainly makes games and such easier.
Area 4: Chassis Maintenance
I got a mani-pedi certificate for my birthday. I turned 24. Well, times two.
Area 5: Debt
We are now at 30% paid down. Slow going, but at least it's moving!
Area 6: Garden
We're looking for a source of free manure to till into the plots. We also talked about growing a ground cover for the winter. What suggestions would you have for a nutritious cover crop to be tilled in when spring arrives? We're in New England and I'm pretty sure that we're going to get snow at SOME point in the future!
