Newsy, that's all

A quick update on my busy and not totally interesting week - unless you like getting rooms redecorated and bedrooms moved around. But they are not actually moved, only in process. That, my dear readers, is not a fun stage. But we are getting close to the finish line. However, today we head to Long Island for a week of family and fun at Aunt Judy's house (Rick's baby sister) so the project is on hold while I throw the essentials into a suitcase (that definitely includes swim gear for the beaches which will be close at hand.)

Leaving a house in turmoil is not my favorite thing, but in my mind I have a plan of attack for the reorganization, so that brings me comfort. I can deal with messes when there is an end in sight. Up until now, a plan has not been clear, but finally I can see what the end result will look like. So -- step back world! When this lady gets a vision, it can be dangerous (or at least very busy...)

Some of my kids left yesterday, some others left at 5:30 this morning -- heading to Pittsburgh, PA where they will assist as a worship team for a youth rally weekend. From there they will all drive to LI and join us there. We will finish up a week long reading program at the local library where my son has been playing Captain Nobeard. The theme was pirates, so every morning he has donned his costume with great relish and headed down the street. Today he will entertain them with his "Pirate King" tune from The Pirates of Penzance. "Ah, yes, we like to start 'em early around here, right mateys?!"

When the last note has been sung, we will whisk him home, change into boring everyday clothes, pile into the van along with my very pregnant daughter (Danica is expecting in 5 weeks), and hit the road. Sounds like a blast to me. I have always treasured long trips in the vehicle with children. I resent DVD players and even CD players if they intrude on our time of communication and song-singing. We definitely listen and watch at times, but hopefully not in lieu of family time. Round-singing and game playing has always been a part of vacation travel time and I, for one, love it!

Happy weekend to all. He reigns supreme forever and ever -- and that's always Good News!

If you have time, a few tips from the room-moving expert would be much appreciated! We have moved rooms so very little over the years that I don't know where to begin tackling it when two have moved out and one is about to--but they all still have *stuff* here!
