What happened to autumn?

Wow -- summer's over, fall disappeared & here we are, smack in the middle of winter. How the heck did that happen?
It's been an eventful few months. And the next few look even more . . . . . shall we say 'exciting'? Sure, let's go with that.
I'll be moving from (mostly) sunny SoCal to (mostly) not so sunny SW Ohio in less than a month. Can you say 'yikes!'? I'm trading a mostly solitary existence to one filled with kids, driving, kids, winter, kids & more fun than I'll know how to handle. I'm going to make a big effort to blog about it all right here, so if you don't see anything by, say, February 14, give me a nudge. I should be ready by then, I think, if I've survived the cross-country mid-winter trek & the moving in of all I hold dear (with the exception of course of my DH & all these critters).

Today we're taking apart those old library chairs so we can reupholster them. They're not anyone's style anymore, but they are very comfy & won't take up a lot of space, either on the way or once we're there. Alan's actually started on the deconstruction & the exclamations I hear from the other room are pretty funny. Or scary. Both, I guess. This should be interesting.

We'll be heading to Lowe's to check out paint, carpet, lighting & tile for Josh, then on to JoAnn's for padding & fabric for the chairs. Busy day.

Check back for periodic updates, OK? I'll try harder. Really.
