I've been in my summer cabin for a week now. In the move I couldn't find my camera for a few days. I still can't find the cord to download my photos. I never realized how much my photos inspired me to add to this blog. I've been almost too busy to sit down and concentrate on posting much. We went a few days before hooking up the Internet here. The my computer crashed. My boys were going crazy without access to their on-line games. My blackberry came in handy. I love getting my emails, text, and blog comments on the go and not being tied down to the desk. We moved the day we urn the clocks ahead. I woke up the next day not knowing where anything was nor what time it was. I am one who takes a long time to figure out how to use a new appliance, let alone how to figure out a whole new house. I've been in a fog for a few days.

We went to our old house to try to finish cleaning out. What a mess. Made me really appreciate that we are on this side of things. The only thing I think I'll miss is not actually the house, but how safe it is to walk long distances over there at night. I'll miss some of the neighbors, too. But I will have a chance to see them.
William is having the first sleep over here with his gaming friends. We've been telling him for months he can have his friends over when we finally are stable. He is happy. Scott and I went out on the kayak this morning. It is gorgeous here this time of year to be doing that.
We did give William and Scott a nice long break from academics. William finished the first semester of Math just before packing up and he's going to start again soon. I am going to start Scott with his BartonReading in April along with his math. Scott has done a ton of reading on his own. I actually think he benefited from taking a break from curriculum because it gave him time to explore his own interests. He's had friends over, too.
I've been able to maintain my high raw and daily smoothie through our move. I am well into the routine now and it comes mostly natural. The third meal isn't always raw, but when I am at home part of it is and my snacking is almost always raw. (We've been through tons of raw cacao in various desserts.) Raw desserts are fabulous and they keep me away from other temptations.
I've got lots of good things to look forward to. John and I are meeting a professional friend of mine tonight in Palm City. Many of you from the office know of my pharmacist colleague Pete who I refer to for thyroid, hormone, fatigue and other related issues. I am finally going to meet him. He has really taught me a lot and next month John and I have the honor of being sponsored to attend a conference advancing my knowledge in the areas we collaborate on. I am hoping to make it to a breastfeeding conference next month if my schedule allows. I notice on amazon my book continues to sell a couple of copies a month. (I'd love to hear from new readers!)
I posted pictures of my vacant house below. The kitchen is well broken in. The book shelves are full. Hopefully I get organized soon and get to post more photos and stories about what we are up to in the Summer Cabin.
