Life... sometimes it just gets in the way of my creativity! I have so many things running through my mind that I want, no need to get created and out of my head. But life puts it on hold for relatively little increments of time.
What's keeping me so busy? My twin daughters are in the process of moving into their first apartment together. So I've been busy with that. Lee (the girls' step-dad) helped me move the big stuff on Sunday and we've been picking away at it since then. They have to buy pretty much everything because all they really have are their twin beds, so we've been shopping a lot, hauling and building and putting together and setting up... and I'm tired.
We have a lot more to do... they still need to finish up all their piles of laundry and buy groceries and they have to go through every inch of "stuff" to see whether they are keeping it or letting it go. It's a big job, coupled by the fact that they are both visually impaired. So I feel like I'm doing a lot of the work. But that's okay. I'm a Mom, that's what I do.
We are off to buy a sofa today that we picked out yesterday, coffee tables and some other odds-n-ends. More to build, more to put away and find a home for. Did I mention I'm tired? I think I'm fighting a bug or something because I'm feeling so tired. I'm also a little emotional... it's a big step for them, and to let them out (or push them out - lol) of the nest is a big deal. Those of you who have already gone through this stage with your kids may understand.
I have a lot of mobility training to do with them so they can get around and know how to do what they need to do. It's the day-to-day stuff that we do so easily, but they will have to learn and I have to figure out how to adapt things to suit their needs. Online banking will hopefully be very helpful, but we'll see.
Anyways, I thought I'd drop a quick, albeit rambling note, to let you all know I'm still around... just very busy... ;)
