New Life

I never knew there was so much difference in apartment living and house living. We are LOVING Charlotte. Yesterday I took the kids out and got lost a few times, (had the GPS) but just drove. I am slowly learning the streets around out house, and haven’t gotten too lost… When we lived in Louisville, I would only stay on three roads. No joke. For three years I didn’t go on anything other than Taylorsville Rd, (which we lived off of), Shelbyville, Rd, (which hubby’s seminary was off of, and his work), and Hurstbourne Parkway. No joke. I didn’t go off those. Since moving to Charlotte I have been on many roads. I have learned where we are in relationship to places. I have been to the WalMart, Chick-fil-A, Lowes, IKEA (did you know kids eat free on Tuesdays?!?!), KidtoKid, Post Office, Zack’s Hamburgers, a Goodwill that happened to be closed (I later learned a disgruntled employee set it on fire). Notice in that list not ONE fabric store. I passed Hancock Fabrics the other day, but knew any visit would be rushed so I didn’t go. I have the sewing area set up in its temporary location. This winter we are going to fully finish the attic space, and my workspace will be up there. The attic isn’t a pull down attic, but has stairs, so, I am soooo excited. I know it will make a WONDERFUL space. I can hardly wait!

Living in a house has helped the kids a lot, because they are calmer. They are allowed to run outside in the huge backyard, and play in the swimming pool. We live in a quiet neighborhood, and last night Loo went out and sang “Single Ladies” for our neighbors. She did all her moves, and she was a riot. Little Man has enjoyed making Wipeout courses in the backyard. He says we need a dog now. 

Up on my list of things to do: 

John Deere Boy Romper

Pink Ruffled Swimsuit, in a 2T

Giraffe Swimsuit, in a Girls 8.

I have been cooking like crazy, making homemade food, and, it has been good. We have eaten every night by 5:30-6, and the kids are going to sleep a lot better. I better go. Laundry isn’t going to do itself, and I gotta get to sewing. 🙂

    I’m so glad that you are getting settled so well in your new home! I know what it’s like to move to a new city with little kids in tow. It takes a while to figure out where everything will go in your new home, and it takes a while to find your way around town. My first priority was always to find the local fabric stores! I’m so glad that you have a Hancocks near you. I miss seeing you in ours already.

    • Claudia- I don’t know if I will EVER find a fabric store where I felt more loved and at home than the Hancocks in Louisville. I absolutely love all of you, and I do miss you all. I am hoping I can find a fabric store here, where I can make friends, but know, you nor any of the other employees can ever be replaced. Much love to y’all. 🙂
