|We could grow these to cover our ugly brick posts, right?|
The timing of this trip couldn't have been better. I certainly needed the break from routine. The week before we left I had been completely worn out by motherhood. I was ready to just go get a job already so I could just go to Mass alone on my lunch break. Incoherent mommy burnout thought processes and a tearful phone call to a friend who has been there many times. I did go to bed early that day and then took the Saturday before we left to paint a toddler bed for Katie Rose, which while it is yet another project it was something I found very relaxing. Sleep and doing something creative but easy started getting me back to normal. No time for blogging it so here it is now:

|Of course there was a butterfly house.|
I'm sure I won't always be capable of such philosophy about the whole thing. I probably seem like a big looney for writing about crying over day-to-day trials and then being so detached about something as big as moving to a different continent all in the same post! But as weird as that is, that's how I'm experiencing it! Say a prayer for me, please, in anticipation of the inevitable shift in emotions! :-) I'll certainly post when I have any news on this. It may be several weeks before a decision is made.

Meanwhile, I need to find a new home for this guy:
The chick named for great-grandma Shar turned out to be rooster, as was suddenly apparent on returning home. We better find him a home fast, before the crowing gets loud!
