What we've been up to

I know the last week or so my posts have been a little more distant then typical of how I write.
At least, I feel like I've been distant...
So I decided, it was time to confess some of the goings on in our lives these days...

The reality of my mister's job is we move... we will move a lot during his career. 
Most of our posts will be a duration of 3-5 years and then we will be packed up and shipped to a new location to start over.
We have been in our current location for 3 years now and were notified in early January that we would be moving on, somewhere new, this summer.
We're ok with this move, we are ready to move on and see a bit more of the country we love so much.

So what have we been up to??
We have been busy little bees trying to prepare our house to go up for sale in early April.
We have been painting every inch of the house that remained untouched from the time we bought it; 
we've been sorting through boxes that were ignored from the time we moved here;
we've been donating books, clothes and toys...
In short, we have been trying to empty our house of the clutter that it's accumulated in the 3 years we have loved it.

In addition to all of this we have been wracking our brains, making lists upon lists upon lists.
You see this move is exciting and terrifying for us.
We are moving north... really north. 
We are moving to a little town of 1200 people with very few resources. We need to prepare our pantry with a least a year's supply of goods along with any other items we think we may need along the way.
We will still have internet access and online shopping (thank goodness!!), but we are trying to be as prepared as possible going in.
Because "Prepared" should have been my middle name!

So there you have it... some of the reason I have been a little quieter on here with less to share and say... because in reality I am covered in paint splatters and writing lists like it's my passion.
well, truth be told, I do love writing lists...
