Photo Friday returns!

Today, I am exhausted.  With a capital E.  We’ve finished moving and have begun the Great Unpacking, and I’m not sure which I like less.  So while we find our belongings (and maybe even our minds), here are some pictures of what the last couple of weeks have been like.  Moving with family is always interesting, and probably a lot less stressful than moving with strangers because you can be yourself, whether it’s good, bad, or ugly.

If you can’t be yourself around family, who can you be yourself around?

So: Family.  Moving.  Pictures.

Did I mention that I have a partner for my Photo Friday posts?  Because I seem to remember mentioning something about it. 🙂  Anyway, thanks to the Blogging 201 course I took last month, I met the lovely Charnele Henry and we decided to collaborate on Photo Fridays.  We chose the theme of family, which fit in nicely with my move.  You can find her post here, and be sure to check out some of her other posts, too!  There’s a lot to see.

Happy Friday, everybody, and if you’re traveling for Mother’s Day this weekend, safe journey!  I’ll see you all back here on Monday. 🙂

And in the end…

Okay, so this isn’t really the end.  How could it be?  I’ve only just begun, after all. 🙂

But, this is the end of the posts for a while.  We’re starting the hard-core moving tomorrow, we’ll be at it all weekend, and I don’t see any computer time in the schedule anywhere till Monday.  And I’ll probably be around rather less than I have been lately because the only internet service available where we’re moving is either through our satellite company (prohibitively expensive) or through our cell phone provider (also prohibitively expensive, but somewhat cheaper).

So in the meantime, I’ll be cutting back to posting three times a week.  The internet thing is supposed to change come fall, and I hope everything will go according to plan.  I want to revive my Photo Friday feature, and I’m going to have some help this time around, so be sure to stop back next week and check it out.  And I’ve been sharing some fun stuff over on Facebook this week, so there’s that.  But in the meantime, here’s a pretty picture of the view from my new office:

The Great Wall of Fiberglass

I spent this morning watching Star Trek: Voyager and eating Goldfish crackers with Cricket and Thumper.  They love watching “the ship.”  And Cricket trying to say Hirogen was possibly the cutest thing ever.

But this afternoon?  This afternoon I spent stacking insulation in my garage while Bubbles and Tadpole made trips down with it from our attic (Yes, they were appropriately attired for dealing with the stuff.  I, on the other hand, was stupid, meaning not appropriately attired.).  We’re moving shortly, and since the insulation isn’t in any way affixed to our house, we’re taking it with us.  Unfortunately, my attempt to stack it neatly in our tiny little garage did not go well.

Greath the wall was, but stable and sturdy it was not.
