Weekend Tidbits

Did y'all all have as dreary of a weekend as we did? Yuck, yuck, yuck.

The Farmer and I had a pretty productive weekend even with all the wet weather. We went to Supper Club in our new town on Friday. We have had the best time going to Supper Club for the past three months. Everyone has been really welcoming, and it seems that the chillens are going to have plenty of kids to play with out of the Supper Club group. Really, it fills me with relief! I am so not good at meeting new people, so this has helped me ease into our new social scene. And hopefully I can get the kids together with some of the other children before school starts so that they will at least recognize a few faces. For Miss Priss, this will be her fourth school in four years (and this is the first time we've moved!), and she is a lot like her mama, so I just worry about her.

The Farmer brought home a bunch of watermelon boxes, and we have spent a lot of time packing today. We filled up about a million boxes, and it seems that we haven't even made a dent in this house. It just goes to show how much junk a family of five can squeeze into a teeny tiny space. I have no clue how we will get it all out of here.


Yes! We have a contract on our house! As my grandmother says, the Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, we will close on June 2nd. I am beyond ecstatic, and I am praying that nothing will fall through. Will you pray that for us, too?

Our move will definitely come at an interesting time. We won't have started picking tomatoes yet, but we will be pretty darn close -- we will just be in that frenzy right beforehand where we are making sure we have all of our ducks in a row. The Farmer will be picking watermelons, but he will be at a little lull since it is right after Memorial Day. The kids and I will move to my in-laws' beach house for the summer while The Farmer will move to our farm house. In August, the kids and I will join The Farmer in the farm house while we wait for our house house to be built. So, on June 2nd our furniture will move to the farm house, but in the meantime we have to find somewhere to put the furniture that is in there now. All while both The Farmer and I are getting busier with work by the day!

Now, I am not complaining. I would much rather have this problem than not have this problem. It just gives us a lot of logistics to figure out.

I also spent a good portion of this dreary day cooking. Our book club/bunco group always does a sign-up for meals for any of our members who have new babies, and it seems our membership is popping out babies left and right these days. So, I decided to fix meals for everyone at once. I have been making Spinach Lasagna Rolls from Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes . They are really, really good, and I highly recommend them whether you are watching your weight or not! (I am also giving the new mommies brownies, so I am not hinting that they need to go ahead and start watching their weight...).

So, I am sure that is all information that you could have done without, but there you have it...I am nothing if not thorough. Here's to a lovely week!

I will say a prayer about the contract. I know what it is like to wait and hope that everything goes as planned-is it Estill that ya'll are moving to?
