We Put the "Labor" in Labor Day

I can show you the gorgeous cabin we moved into... since we no longer live in it.

Yup. That was short-lived. Seven weeks, for those of you whose furrowed brows beg, When did they move in? It was an exhausting weekend with unsettling news, signing a new lease, and packing and moving -- all within 48 hours.

3 U-Haul loads
3 car loads
A lot of money gone
Infinite sore muscles

We moved everything by ourselves. Last year, I compared my childhood thoughts about Labor Day with the holiday's history. This year, I think S and I truly put the "labor" in Labor Day.

I'll explain more as soon as my disappointment (and a few tears) dissipates, and organization and sanity return. Farewell, log cabin. It was fun while it lasted. It's all fun and games until the neighbors are robbed twice in six weeks.

Sorry for the blog neglect. Genuinely, I hope your holiday weekend and week have been much better than ours!

Moving is NO fun, especially when it's twice with a few weeks. (And especially when you're forced into it!)

So sorry to hear that, Lindsay! But the good news is... it's all over with now!, go have yourself a long, relaxing bubble bath. ;)

I love you.
You're tough, Sis.

If there's a third move in order, I'm driving my little butt up to Tennessee to help. NOT KIDDING.

Oh my goodness, what?! This all sounds exhausting! Hope you get some rest soon. Don't worry about your blog. Take care of you first, and we'll all be here when you have the energy to fill us in on all the deets.

You guys made the right decision for yourselves and Amelie and Boone. I know it was rough, psychologically and physically, but the fact that you guys did it and aren't hardened world-haters is a testament to how awesome you both are.

Love ya!!!

Yikes! I've been worried about you. I'm glad you are somewhere where you feel safe. It's all a part of your story and this is definitely an interesting little piece.

Oh my goodness, that sounds intense! I am so sorry that the log cabin of your dreams did not work out. I hope that wherever you moved to is going to be a safer, better situation!
