No, we haven't fallen off the face of the earth, though it feels a bit like it in some ways. It's been a week now since we landed in this quiet little town. Given all that has happened in the last seven days, that's hard to believe.
It has been a whirlwind - a whirlwind of popcorn ceiling crud, wallpaper strips, crumbling plaster, shaggy carpet and linoleum. Not at all in that order, but rather in every combination of disorder we could manage.
Do not be deceived, my friends, all may look serene in the picture below, but inside is something quite akin to chaos.
But it is our chaos, our home. And we are whole, and healthy. And albeit a little unsettled-feeling and a bit harried, we are managing some happiness, too.
I'll share about what's been going on inside of the house later this week, but just wanted to check in quick-quick like and let you know we're still kicking. ; )
