However, there are definitely some I do!
Our lovely house with fabulous front porch. We have a little pool on it now, and that has been a lifesaver on these hot afternoons!
Strangely enough, I seem to have gotten use to the crooked "A".
It was difficult, but I have learned to let it go.
Eat in kitchen - with lots of counter space, now that I have none of the usual things to put on the counter... Isn't that the way it goes? I keep it full of random schoolwork instead!
Our living room has a nook for an "office", stairs heading to the basement, (which is completely empty, but would be a fabulous thing to have if we actually had our furniture here!) our camp chairs and a couch we found next to the dumpster at the top of the hill. That is the nice thing about living in a community that is primarily military. People are always moving in and out. There was actually a nicer couch out there the other day and we thought about trading, but we already cleaned this one up.
I was actually quite broken hearted to think of the waste: a perfectly fine couch (and loveseat) going to the landfill rather then the Salvation Army. I rejoiced when we came home and it had disappeared. It seems someone else around here thinks "dumpster diving" is a good way to furnish their house!
Canaan and Zion's room - an air mattress and camp cot.
The "play room", which tends to be covered in toys most of the time.
They were both allowed to bring two stuffed animals, and one "set" of toys. Canaan picked Legos and Zion brought his Cars. Both of those can take up an entire room by themselves if you let them! You would think that with a whole room they could keep it contained... but most of the time they still drag them out into the living room so they can be near us while they play.
The master bedroom. The built in shelf has been a lifesaver. We didn't bring any dressers so my jewelry, candles, and a few pictures that I couldn't live without have had someplace to land.
Where else would socks and underwear go?
Living with little has made me appreciate how much I have. Most of what I brought here will be left here. But I have so much to go back to. Truly, I am so blessed.
Life is a little hectic right now, but I miss my online world. I am coming back eventually... I hope! In the meantime,
