Moving with 4 young kids is insane. It's especially crazy to make multiple home improvements and run a home business at the same time. Luckily, my parents and my little brother came to the rescue and stayed with us for 2 weeks and worked tirelessly to help us. We also have some wonderful friends here who rushed to help us in our time of need by watching our kids, bringing us meals, and helping us pack the moving truck. Thank you again to everyone who was able to help!
We repainted almost the entire house, had new carpet installed upstairs, put in laminate hardwood flooring in the living room, and did some landscaping in the front and backyards. What an ordeal!
Here is a picture of true love and charity... It's hard to see in this picture, but my mom had a cast on her arm from when she broke her wrist a few weeks ago in Bulgaria. She was still sore all over from her injuries (which included a concussion which made her dizzy at times), but she didn't let it stop her from working every day, ALL day.
And then there's my dad. He is the hardest worker I know. I think the floor turned out beautifully under the tutalge of our friend "Trekky Man".
Whew! I'm so glad that fiasco is over... and that we're finally getting settled in our new home in WI. And as far as I'm concerned we're staying put for good! I'm determined that I won't put our kids through that again!
P.S. Anyone want to buy a house? ;)
