As most of you know, my family and I will be moving in a couple of days. We'll be out of our house for about four days while our belongings get moved. This means we won't be able to take our food from the refrigerator and freezer with us. I've been letting our food supply dwindle. If you come over and peek in our refrigerator and cupboards, you won't see much of anything. My kids have not been pleased about this.
"Mama," my son said. "I need something to eat."
"There's some lunchmeat and bananas," I said.
"But I don't want lunchmeat and bananas," he complained.
My daughter got on the bandwagon. "Yeah, Mom. Where's the ice cream?"
Okay, even I admit, it's been tough not having ice cream. That's my personal weakness. "Sorry kid. No ice cream. No cookies. No cake. No chocolate. (Another major catastrophe!) You'll just have to deal with it."
"Mama, you're worse than old Mother Hubbard," my son exclaimed.
Yes, I know. I'm the most rotten mom on the planet. Next I'll be sending my kids to the market to sell our pet cat for some food. And then my boy will trade the cat for some magic beans. Which of course will sprout into a giant beanstalk with a castle at the top. (Let's hope there's a chicken that lays golden eggs up there!)
This will be my last post for a while. I'll be offline while my family and I settle into our new home. I'll miss all of you. But don't worry. I'll be back!
Good luck with the move!ReplyDelete
Thanks. The move went well!Delete
Best of luck with your move, Sherry! Take care. :)ReplyDelete
All the best with moving Sherry. I know how hard it is. I've done my shre of moving houses!ReplyDelete
This was move number 10 for me. Move 22 for my husband!Delete
I hope it goes smoothly! I don't envy you the move, but I'm sure there will be lots of ice cream for all of you upon arrival~ReplyDelete
First thing I did was stock my freezer with ice cream. ;0)Delete
Good luck with the move and all the crittersReplyDelete
Thanks. The critters survived!Delete
I'll miss you, and I'll pray that the move goes well. I moved many times, so I'm aware of how difficult it is. I always tried to maintain as much continuity in my children's lives as I could.ReplyDelete
Moving is not fun, but we all survived!Delete
LOL...sounds like time for a trip to MacDonalds! Happy moving :-)ReplyDelete
We had lots of trips to Subway. McDonalds makes us sick!Delete
Hope everything goes well with the move! You should reward yourself with ice cream once it's all over. ;)ReplyDelete
Believe me, I did!Delete
Good luck with the moveReplyDelete
We will all miss you too! We'll look forward to our next bit of news from you after you've settled in your new home. Hope you all love it there.ReplyDelete
We're here, along with all the lines and traffic!Delete
Oh my stars and stripes, what sass! (Sass I can't help but laugh at ;) sorry, lol!!)ReplyDelete
I get lots of sass from my kids!Delete
I hope that the move goes smoothly, Sherry!ReplyDelete

Hope all goes well with the move and all the best to setting up your new home.ReplyDelete
We're here, and pretty much organized. I still have to tackle all the stuff that had been in storage.Delete
Your kids are precious--safe travels and transitions.ReplyDelete
I hope the movie is smooth. See you when you're back online.ReplyDelete
It seems like it's been forever!Delete
Good luck with your move! When you get back online, you might want to check out the post I put up today about the exhibit that's at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I think it might be right up your alley.ReplyDelete
Thanks. When I get a minute, I'll look up your post. I definitely want to visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!Delete
Hope you're settling in just fine and foods are coming in the new cupboards and the refrigerator.ReplyDelete
Good news: There's ice cream in the freezer! ;)Delete
Have a safe journey! :)ReplyDelete
I love the nursery rhyme connection. Good luck with the move!ReplyDelete
Your boy knows his nursery rhymes -- and is able to apply them in a real-life situation. Be proud. And have a safe move.ReplyDelete
I've taught him well. ;0)Delete
LOL. Here's hoping your move goes smoothly and you're able to settle in without difficulty.ReplyDelete
We are here. It went fairly smoothly, so I'm grateful for that!Delete
Wish you luck in your moving! I know how hard it can be.ReplyDelete
I think the hardest part is leaving friends and family, but I'm sure we'll all make new friends soon!Delete
have fun moving--and stock that cupboard--start with the ice-cream of course--we will all miss you :(ReplyDelete
Ice cream was definitely first on the list - followed by chocolate! ;)Delete
