My family of four (1/2 of which is 5 or under) have been living in one bedroom in my sister's basement for three weeks. (Add up all the numbers in that sentence and get a prize!) We've endured an array of viral illnesses during that time and my insomnia has come in like a lion (much like the entire month of March here; A fresh layer of snow arrived last night).

However, if life really is a highway then we have left the orange cones behind and set the cruise to a comfortable speed. We found a house and will be in it in less than two weeks. My sister and her family are out of town, which decreases the stress levels in the house and all the hard parts of the moving process are over. I'm really looking forward to our new location which will be 5 miles from DH's office and .5 miles from the elementary school.

If you've not seen a comment from me on your blog, however, it's not my fault. My sister has internet controls set and if content requirements are not met, I can't access certain sites. Chris, Jaye, Vanilla, Minx and others, I shave my finger with my other finger at you.

Two little weeks, baby. I can't wait.

13.5 here as well. Damn, Szelsofa said it first. Damn you to hell, Woman. Muahahaha.

The last time we moved, things weren't ready and I had to use the last of our funds to rent a crummy hotel room. So, I was penniless with two hungry children in a hotel room. It could always be worse and aren't you glad when it gets better?

I always believe people who never experience hard times never really experience good ones either.

This has got to be the most drug-induced post with commenters I've seen in a while! hehehehe! I don't understand any of this.
But I hope you'll get moved in smoothly.

Hope the move goes well. All this will be a memory soon. I've had my bro and his family of four stay in a bedroom in my house for months, then he had to reciprocate two years later when I slept on his couch for six weeks.

It's just life, and we're thankful we can be there for each other when called upon - despite the fact that at the time it all seems surreal.

I came back to check the situation only to crack me up with Christine's comment.
I re-read all the pre-Chris comments and saw how correct she just was.

God, but Family is wonderful.
Thank you,Hoodie, for your good wishes.
