Almost a month later and I'm finally starting to feel settled! Of course I still haven't found the iron or my B vitamins, but all in all the unpacking process has only been slightly more frustrating than the packing process. : p

The one thing we didn't count on was the extreme disarray in the office/craft room. See, our other home had a ton of fabulous built-ins and we no longer have those so we're making do with one tiny desk and one file cabinet. Fortunately yard sale season is almost here (not holding my breath though as it snowed 4 inches here a week ago!) so I can find a cast off dining room table of some sort to use as a two sided desk with some extra workspace. Oooo, this would make a good before and after post, ya think? : )

I have to say though, that the blessings of being in our country home FAR outweigh any packing/unpacking blues. It's been such a joy to see the kids riding their bicycles along our 1/4 mile driveway without having to hover out there because there might be cars or pedestrians, or strange dogs, or what have you. Not to mention the fact that we can now actually do a unit study on stars and the night sky because we can actually see it! The quiet is absolutely lovely, as are the birds, coyotes, distant neighbors, etc. My thanks to a mighty God that provides such wonderful things to enjoy!!
