(don't worry, no need to call 911)2011 is anticipated to be a CRAZY year for our family! I'm so excited with all the changes we're expecting, and no...I'm not pregnant :) We are moving. Clear. across. the. country....literally...very soon (pray for me), being separated from my husband for months(making me a semi-single mother, for who knows how long), living with family, and then moving AGAIN where we hope to *fingers crossed* buy our FIRST HOME!
Exciting, and scary things all at the same time. My point, you ask?
Is it strange that I'm really sad that for a good portion of the year, I won't have a home that I can decorate?!
While there is "light at the end of the tunnel" with buying a home of our own later in the year, it just makes me sad to think I can't really make much in the way of house decor, or things in general to make the place "ours". sigh.
Why do I think these things through so much anyway? Why is making "stuff"(or the lack thereof) even something on my radar with SO many other details that need to be worked out? With so many other adjustments me and my family will have to make, why am I thinking of decorating?!
Illness? Maybe passion? Probably illness ;) If/when I do make something, it will just be one more thing to have to pack up and move again. nobody likes that part. nobody. And if you do, then there's no question you have an illness. ( I recommend getting help, or helping me do the packing and moving!)
Here's where you come in- I need ideas for my kids, and myself for that matter, for traveling. We'll be spending 4 Looooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg days in the car driving from the coast of Georgia, to the coast of California. My kids are young, 4 years, and not quite 2 years yet. I've got the movies handled with the DVD player in my car, but I'd prefer my kids not going brain dead because of constant movies for 4 days. I don't have that many movies anyhow, and my kids don't have that attention span either :)
So send me links, or leave me comments with ideas of things we can do in the car, or things I can make to make the trip easier. Anything!
P.S. Coping suggestions are welcome as well, for my lack of crafting crisis. Sympathy works too ;)
