In Disguise


Ephram asks every night to read the books ‘pop’, ‘choo choo’ & ‘ah fook’. If that last one didn’t have such a hilarious name, I might be slightly more annoyed that Beau and I have been reading the same three books to Ephram since January 6th - the day we left Minnesota for our new home in Texas. If I’d known that on January 24th (18 days later) that we’d still be without our furniture, clothes, cookware, toys, couches, bed, ect... you can bet I would have left more books unpacked and taken them in the car with us. Lesson learned: Never listen to spoken promises on the phone of a moving company. Nearly 20 days later you’ll read the fine print on that moving agreement and find out that there is really no guarantee of any specific amounts of days before you’ll be reunited with your furniture. And for those of you who can’t translate 22 month old speak, the above mentioned books are ‘Hop on Pop’, a picture book featuring a train, and ‘The Foot Book’. The first and last being Dr. Suess’s creations.

Anyways, we are now officially in Texas and finally have internet, and I really wanted to post a Tuesday Odds & Ends today. But it’s just not happening. I’ve got a little guy running around the house asking for ‘Cheese?!’ because I slipped and let him know I was going to make mac and cheese for lunch. At least I’ve got lunch figured out. Dinner on the other hand... My brain simply cannot come up with a warm, healthy meal that I could cook with only a baking sheet, a large cooking pot, and plastic silverware. Oh, and tongs. I do have tongs. If you have any ideas for me, now is the time to speak up! :)

I’m also contemplating combining the blogs. For some reason, I’ve been disliking the disconnect for awhile. I want one place to post about Ephram, our life in Texas, my personal ramblings, my photography, things that inspire me, and whatnot. What are your thoughts?

Funny thing, now that I read through my post, I guess this is sort of an Odds & Ends post after all. In disguise! :)
