Missing the Norm...

With all the new questions and concerns that are now a daily part of my life... Who do we choose to rebuild the house? What kind of budget are we working with? Where is the Margaritaville Margarita machine? OK the electronics company delivered half of my computer speakers, where are the other half? Will I really be back in my home in 5 more months? ... I am missing my normal daily activities.

I went a month without writing... there was a story started on my computer (that I couldn't get to) and I wanted to re-read it and continue with it... I got that back a few weeks ago... Yay!

I haven't baked a thing in two months... this is a big deal! I love baking. I had to go out and buy all new everything (because any food that was in the house was trashed). Flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, powdered sugar, baking chips... all those staple supplies had to be replenished... and I always seem to forget something while I am out! The kids are out of school on Thursday and I promised we would bake!!!

I haven't crafted anything in two months either. I know... cry me a river... but crafting is a HUGE part of my life! I had some craft supplies brought over (my entire scrapbooking room is going to be destroyed but all my supples are good - they are just mostly being stored right now)... I just don't have the room in the rental house :(

So... I think I just may have to live without my norm for the next several months, while the house is rebuilt and then while we move back in and unpack (or donate a good portion of) our stuff... I have a feeling that my norm will have shifted by then...
