Home at Last!

We have just moved into our new home. As most people probably know, moving is an ordeal. Even though we pared down on our belongings using venues like Freecycle, we still had THREE trips with the U-Haul truck. Plus countless trips with our little car, my mom's truck and a few with my stepdad's bigger truck. I didn't think about how much space those few rabbit cages would take up. Whew!

For those of you who read that we entered a contest to win a house... well, the contest was stopped by the state. But thanks to our online friends, we had a huge amount of votes. We get to live in the contest house after all, with an option to buy it. Whee! Thank you to all of you who voted for us.

I spent a week without internet, so that left me time to unpack. Well, almost completely. There are a few discreet boxes still stashed here and there. The kids love it here... we are in the country on an acre. It is sooooo quiet! The cats are climbing all the oak trees, and the rabbits are settled in. On clear nights, it is amazing to see all the stars in the sky. Now if only the cell phone would work while we are on our property... as of this writing, we have to cross the street to get a signal.

I am now getting back into the swing of things online. Keeping up with Facebook, Twitter and writing for the website are definitely on my daily schedule. I have all my midwifery books on a handy shelf behind the couch I work at, and I'm feeling very optimistic about how everything will work out.
