I just wanted to do an official post and let everyone know that I am returning to my former blog. Truthfully, I miss it. I was on that blog for many years and it was like a comfortable pair of old shoes.
I am getting organized now and I love it. My linen closet has never looked so good. I have nice white containers for everything. And I am keeping the blankets in the rooms they are most used to keep them from taking up all the space in the closet.
I am putting up curtains and pictures and making the house look good. It just makes me happy to feel like this house is clean and spacious and bright and airy!
My bathroom is white a shiny. I got a new shower curtain liner. I always replace my shower curtain liner and my toilet brush when I move. I hate the idea of packing them up and moving them. YUCK!
Well, I finished cleaning up the old apartment. It was a BIG JOB because the men who helped us move are MESSY SLOBS! But I scrubbed the whole place from top to bottom and it looks pretty darned good, better than it did when we moved in! I am proud of the job I did. Let’s hope the landlord likes it too. I am so glad to be finished with that place!
Well we are all moved in and settling in okay. Sorry for the delay in posting but during our move, someone broke into our old place in the terrible neighbourhood and robbed us. Some of the things that are gone are my digital camera, my friends digital camera, a laptop, our computer monitor, money and a few other things that we can tell. As I said, we were moving so things were disorganized anyway. I am going up to the old place tomorrow to clean it up but I have to say, I can’t be out of there fast enough for me. The kids are loving this place. They love the yard and they REALLY LOVE their room. They spend more time there than anywhere else.
Well we officially have a washer and dryer in our new place now. And we lucked into someone who will take one pick-up truck’s worth of boxes for $50!! Yay!!! That is a lot less boxes to have to carry down THREE flights of stairs!
On another note, I am so glad we are moving out of this place! Our fire alarm keeps going off from the drug users downstairs and today there were people screaming at each other and threatening to beat each other up and screaming right up to the window below us!
Tonight for supper I am making something that I am confident will be VERY yummy! Vegan sausages and peppers! I bought some Tofurky sausages as a treat. I don’t often eat meat substitutes as I find I would rather just enjoy the wonders that fruits and veggies have to offer all on their own, but I used to love sausages and since Wandering Aengus was having sausages, I thought I would make some for me too.
Place oil into a pan and when it’s hot, add the sliced peppers, mushrooms and onions. Cook until they caramelize slightly, then add the garlic and sliced Tofurky sausages. Slices should be around 1/3rd inch thick. Cook all together for ~10 minutes until sausage is cooked through and veggies are tender. This would be good in so many ways but I am thinking of making myself a simple sandwich maybe with a little vegan nacho cheese.
I am still sore today but I am getting things done for this move. This move came on so suddenly that I feel like it is completely out of control. On the upside, the move is scheduled for Monday! I am so excited to be in the new house soon. I can’t wait to spend hot summer days in the yard with my kids.
Okay, so one of the dubious benefits of having a lot of kids running around my place is I find it hard to keep things off the floor. There is always little bits of things some place I never intended them to be. And today, I tripped over some and fell. With 3 month old Jackson IN MY ARMS!!!! I landed hard on my knees and knew I wasn’t going to be able stop myself from falling so I twisted myself so that I was under her and he landed with his head on my chest. He was fine, but I am sore. my neck, my stomach, my back and my knees are all achy and sore. Fun, fun, fun. But at least I kept him from being hurt.
