2 days without a water heater
7 days without a bed for the boys
10 days without a dryer or stove/oven (yes, I was almost out of microwave/crockpot menu ideas)
12 days without internet access at home.
Hopefully soon I can write numbers next to days without a sofa, mailbox (mail not delivered unless we’re in the yard to collect it), garbage pick-up, mower, and a second vehicle. They will come. The first few weeks (hmmm, have we not even lived here for two weeks? Okay, well, then, the first few days….) it was easier to make do without. Now we’ve lived here almost two weeks and it’s harder not to demand that they should be here.
This is my clothesline:
Zachary has a few lines where he can hang socks and wash clothes. It’s a great job for him–keeps him busy, and makes him feel like like he’s contributing to the family. Plus I need every inch of line space to get a load out. :)
