city livin’


We only lived 7 miles from town before, but now we’re IN town. The move allowed us to enroll the kids in schools that are close enough to walk to or which have buses running by our house. It’s an amazing thing. The first day they went to school and I didn’t have to watch the clock in the afternoon to make sure I wasn’t late (although they wouldn’t have been shocked or concerned, due to the frequency with which that happened before) was absolutely mind-blowingly freeing. I have so much more time to waste every day! But I don’t waste it EVERY day… some days I actually do stuff.

About Laurie

I have too many hobbies, but have finally learned (sort of) how to focus on one at a time and stifle my desire to add more. ;) I'm a mom, a wife, a writer, an artist, a seamstress, a gardener, a backyard-chicken farmer, a fundraiser, a movie-lover, a book hoarder, a junker, a thrift-store-shopper... I also love to laugh, make people happy, and take road trips. Some of these things make it into blog posts. I'm almost 50 and I'm still able to sleep through the night. I consider that a success.
