|The livingroom...the front door is behind the reclining chair.|
|Looking back into living room. The TV is on an antique sewing cabinet. I sold the entertainment center.|
|The dining room...I sold our dining set, so this is temporary.|
|Obviously the kitchen next to the dining room...Open floor plan.|
|Master bedroom looking into master bath...walk in closet is on the left and a full wardrobe closet is just inside door facing bed.|
|Office.. the cords will be out of sight! I have a glider rocker & ottoman on the right of the window.|
I only have to pack my craft room now, which isn't going to be too fun. I had let it go for the past six months, putting all my purchased goodies from garage & estate sales and antique & thrift stores in there, so it is a mess. I do have a lot already in plastic bins and drawer containers. It is really cold in my craft room because it is in the garage and the weather has been freezing here. It got to 50 degrees today, but the garage doesn't warm up very quickly. So tomorrow I will turn on my heater & wait a few hours before I venture out there. My daughter will be working out there with me since she has glass bead making things to pack also; her torch, glass rods, and all her tools. That will make it more fun, for sure! ;-) My dream is to have a room in the house that I can decorate & have all my treasures on display. I want a room that I can enter in the "Where Bloggers Create" magazine!! We'll see if that happens...gotta sell this house first & see what we have to work with.
I have exciting news to share...I won a giveaway from "Glitter and Roses" blog. I will receive a wonderful cookbook by Ree Drummond, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks". Check out Ginger's blog at: http://glitterandroses.blogspot.com. She has a wonderful blog full of beautiful things she makes, decorates, and shares. I will post when I receive my book & share it with you.
I am exhausted mentally and physically. I haven't shared about my health, but I have been getting by with the help of a naturopath/chiropractor. I hurt my back in July & the result is 5 bulging disks, 2 pinching the sciatic nerve causing much pain & difficulty walking, standing, or sitting for long periods. I was contemplating surgery which I didn't want, then a co-worker of my husbands recommended this doctor. I have seen him now for 2 months with much relief. However, as I work hard on packing, my back rebels; thus I continue to have treatments. Once I am done with packing, I pray that my back can heal totally and that surgery won't be necessary. I only know that I couldn't have done anything if I'd had surgery; I would have been laid up for 6-8 weeks conservatively. I am so thankful that I followed through seeing the doctor & didn't back out like I wanted to. My husband is instrumental in that decision!! LOL! But thankfully the house packing and prepping is coming to a close and I can rest more. But for now we wait. We wait for clear roads to pack a moving truck & take it over Santiam Pass with all the belongings that are ready to go to storage,...we wait for a family to buy the house...we wait for the final move with the rest of our stuff in another moving truck...we wait for the answer on what we can buy in another home, if at all...we wait to be together again; my hubby & I. But life is full of anticipation & waiting for something for everyone, isn't it?
