Well, we are still displaced! But, we have made an offer on our new house and hopefully things go smoothly and we will be moving at the end of January.
Since we've been displaced things just haven't felt the same. We have a Christmas tree. It's up in the front room of our rental. We have gifts under it... We've watched some Christmas movies too, but the Christmas spirit is elusive this year.
We haven't taken Christmas pictures. We have nothing cute to wear in them anyway. All of our cute clothes are packed and wasting away in storage. We finally got our Christmas ornaments made but there is no way anyone will get them before Christmas at this rate. All my good padded mailers are packed so I'll need to pick up some more. Our Christmas letter is written but I have no envelopes... Hmmm... I guess I'll need to go to the store and buy some of those too. Which is frustrating because we already have envelopes. Packed of course.
So, keep your expectations low from us this year. Sorry there will be no Christmas cards, pictures, or ornaments. There might still be a Christmas letter...sometime.
We are ready to get out of the "transition" phase of moving. Toys are all packed. Books are all packed. We are bored and cold. The house is dark and drafty.
We can't wait to finally have a place to call home!
