All Settled In...
...for the most part anyway. Organization is key! We moved from my dear brother's 2800 square foot house to this teeny weeny 2 bedroom apartment. We are adjusting well, considering the situation. I just keep telling myself I can do anything for a short amount of time; short being 3-4 years while my husband finished mechanical engineering school at Mankato State University. It will all be worth it in the end I tell myself. God is taking great care; all is falling into place just perfectly, we just need to trust him.
The biggest downside is we have no washer and dryer in our apartment...this sucks!! So, just a few steps away is the laundry for $1.00 per load, 2 washers, 2 dryers, one of which doesn't even work! Why don't they replace it!!?? Today, we are going to go and play at my friends and do laundry. I racked up the numbers for laundry per month averaging $50.00 a month; more in the winter and less in the summer! I'm bringing my dear friend homemade bread in payment; she was very happy!
Diapers are the biggest problem... can't dry the plastic pants in the dryer, I use to put them on the floor register in the bathroom at my brothers, but here there are radiators lining the walls at the floor (We don't usually have the heat on because it gets like a sauna in here if you do. Katya runs around in a sundress half the time!) So, here the the heat goes up, plastic pants line the living room walls stuck in the radiator and we all dress like we are going to the beach!
I can't wait to get to the dye pot again... I think of it all the time; what colors next, color mixing rolling around in my head, so many to chose from, what will I do first!? Hopefully soon!
David is up now, sitting on my lap with a big rumble in in pants, gotta get to reality now. Oh yeah, I get to change my pants now, too!
