Monday, Monday, Monday...

Not much is going on here today...usually Monday is my "day off"...if homeschooling mamas can have a day off. Since I work miserable hours on Friday and Saturday away from our home, Monday is kind of a "down" day.
We are doing laundry and some cleaning and Rebecca is about to sew on her new sewing machine that she got as an early birthday present from her Mimi and Papoo. (aka my mom and dad) She has a stuffed animal that she is planning to sew for a 4H project so we might get a start on that today. She has already cut it all out. (THAT'S the part I hate to do!!!) She also wants to go shoe shopping...I said that would be fine as long as they get their school work done first!

I am so excited about this weekend coming up! We are going to the Weekend To Remember Marriage Conference near Chicago!! I have never been able to go to such a thing and I remember praying and asking God to send me a husband that would WANT to go to things like that! God is VERY GOOD!!

We are still kind of waiting to see if there is ANY chance that our little lot can be built on. I had a rough day yesterday...I kept "tearing up" about it in church. I sometimes cry in church so I'm sure that people thought I was "just being spiritual..." and all I was doing was feeling sorry for myself! haha! I don't usually "boo hoo" but Christian songs certainly make me misty eyed and in combination with my disappointment, I had to brush away some tears! Anyway, I know that God is in control and that He does things on purpose. Sometimes I think He just wants us to appreciate things and HIM so He puts things in our paths to make us THINK!

In the meantime, we are searching the internet for BUILDABLE lots and even some houses that may fit our needs. We are looking for a home that can be big enough for our family yet small enough to be economical. That's why we decided to TRY to have the cottage moved to the lot. (THAT didn't work, did it?) We would like to have a basement for several reasons. First, Indiana is NOTORIOUS for tornados! A basement would be nice! Also, a basement would be just right to put extra bedrooms with windows, and extra storage space. We found a floor plan for a "True" modular...the type of home that can be two stories or a cape cod or a ranch house...that would suit our needs just right. We are planning to tour the facility in northern Indiana next Monday just in case we are able to buy a lot somewhere. We are going to be in the area anyway on our way back from Chicago so we might as well still do it!
Have a lovely day and THINK SUNSHINE for Indiana! We are tired of the cold dismal days! It makes me want to nap!
