Delays

Planning anything lately seems impossible. The nights are getting darker faster and soon the leaves will change. I'm getting praises from the kids for letting them start school later, not because they don't like school, but because they love free unstructured days of lounging. Really the only reason for the delay is because of the move but I will let them think it's because I'm a cool mom. With lots of things already packed we are just waiting for some small details. Then there will be pictures of the castle and all the projects - and there will be many. We are looking forward to it all - yes even stripping the wall paper and pulling up the shag carpeting.
Hubbies birthday is this week. The kids and I are planning to make him the most delicious chocolate cake ever. He deserves it - with all my crazy mood swings lately. Now I must go pack away that yarn before I start another project when I have so many to finish already.
