A Life of Cardboard

Since when did life become cardboard boxes and packing tape?   We're back from our trip home to TX, back to the reality of unpacking in our new place.  We've had a lot of kinks with this house to the point I've questioned staying in it or not.  You know how when you buy a car and everything goes wrong?  Sort of a lemon.  But moving is major.  So I'd prefer to work out the kinks.  Therefore, it's taking me a little longer to unpack.  I'm planning another trip, this time a little vaca with my kiddos.  I like for them to go on at least one adventure in the summer.  They're all voting for theme park.  Did I ever mention how much I hate theme parks?  Especially in this heat.  The things we do for our kids.

After that, I'm hoping to find some good white sand in FL.  A little beach time should help me recuperate.


Wishing you all some R&R in the next few weeks.

Oh, I soooooooooo hate theme parks and anything with heat mixed with long lines!! I much prefer climbing on a cool mountain trail or swimming in the ocean. I am glad my kids do too! However I like very small parks that have just a few rides and grand picnicing places and lakes.

I hater theme parks too...wait in line for an hour for a 3 min. ride! We did all the tourist stuff with our kids when they were little too though. Have a good one and good luck with the unpacking! :D

Good luck working the kinks out! Moving is MAJOR, so I see what you mean.
I'm not a big fan of theme parks . But I will go if I have to. Yes , the things we do for our kids! Thank you for that great comment on my blog. I agree with you so much!
Have a pretty day!

I've been wishing for a little beach time lately, too. It's the greatest therapy :) Have fun!

Sounds like you need to stop and breathe for a moment and just take time out for you and I don't mean on something that switls you around the earth like those rides at a theme park:)
I think a beach trip would be just perfect sans the carnival rides!
Thanks for coming by and saying hello again,

Hello my dear friend, I'm so glad to see you post again, I miss you!
I'm so sorry to hear of all of the problems that you have encountered in moving into this house, I sure hope it gets better from here on out.
I haven't been to a theme park for ages and ages, but I used to go to the North West Washington Fair with my grands and oh what fun we had!!! They had rodeo events happening as well, though, and that made it fun, but I always went on one ride with my granddaughter. If all goes well, we may be over there this year at Fair time. I am praying!
Hugs, Cindy S

I dislike theme parks too. Between the crowds, the heat, the dirt and noise...no thank you! lol

Oh, I know moving all too well. I'm a pro at moving out and in, it's the adjusting to a new place that always gets to me. Life is an adventure and although moving can be difficult, it's just part of the adventure called life that gives you new BFFs.

Hugs, Marla

Theme parks are not my favorite either. I do better at large parks, like Disney, where there is lots of theater...inside, sitting, in air conditioning!
Moving is never easy. I think it's up there with death and taxes. Hang in there! :)

Some time off will do your soul some good.
i am sorry you are having so many issues--there's a reason you may not know right now--- it's still frustrating, though, right?
Enjoy your children, they are more important!
Hugs,

moving IS major work and effort.

good for you to take your time...and taking time for the beach.

it's not going anywhere and it's better to not be uber-stressed. :)

I'm sorry to hear things aren't quite what you'd hoped with the new house. I hope you get the kinks worked out. And I'm with you on beach time as opposed to theme park time. I just hate the lineups and the crowds and worrying about losing the kids. It's so stressful. :)

Sarah said...

I'm with you on theme parks. Fortunatly I've never needed to plan a vacation around one. LOL
Your new home looks very nice. Hope the kinks get worked out for you and that cool air in now filling those rooms. ~ sarah

I'm not fond of amusement parks also! I vote for the beach!
I remember living in a "box city" for a long while when we moved into StoneGable. I think you are smart to unpack slowly and purposefully1
