After miles upon miles of this...
We are finally back in our home state of California. It feels great! Except for the fact that we're all sick... with strep.
It started the day before we were supposed to leave (which ended up delaying us another day) and has continued until now, with Daisy beginning to suffer the most at night with a very painful sore throat. Thankfully we were able to go to a clinic and get a prescription for each of us yesterday, so we should be done with this very soon.
We moved most of our belongings into a storage locker, stayed in a hotel (I highly recommend Extended Stay hotels) for a few days and now we're starting to settle in to a room at my mother-in-law's house until my husband can secure a job. It's strange thinking that we're basically homeless for now. I can't wait until we have our own place, but until then I thank heaven for family!
As soon as I can get my camera unpacked from all the things we jammed into our mini van when we moved, I will post the tutorial for the shrug. I was able to take all the photos before we moved, but hadn't loaded them onto the computer. And now my husband is using the computer most of the time looking for a job, so I haven't had much time on it since we've been here.
Stay tuned, but please be patient with me!
P.S. I'll also start up the linky party again this Tuesday (sorry for skipping a week!) and will post the features from last time.
