My apologies for the unexpected blog break, I was MIA for a little while there. Thank you to those who checked on me over the past month and a half; it means so much to me. Here's the reason (in addition to my unpacking-decorating-arranging-redecorating-rearranging): Our youngest, apparently a budding electrician, managed to get his hands on not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 macbook chargers. They were not, to our surprise, made in such a way as to withstand 2+ ounces of slobber soaking into the little pluggy thing. Coincidentally, my computer also developed a need for a new battery and some other fill-in-the-blank-with-technical-jargon hardware. The nice people at the Apple store gave us 2 brand new chargers, replaced the battery, and installed the very-important-but-technically-mysterious hardware at no charge to us, or to our young electrician. And it is times like these that remind me of God's constant care for us.
I am feeling pretty set on being settled, at least with the practical things. The toys are stored, we have trash cans in the kitchen and both bathrooms and I have a place to put the laundry, and it is not on the hallway or bedroom floors, not that it ever was ;)
I am off to take in the crisp Fall air; we have plans to bake an apple pie this week-the girls went apple picking! I heart living in the midwest!
