Movin' slow.

Cabin Fever n. A type of hysteria brought on from spending too much time indoors.

Stir-crazy adj. Distraught or restlessness from long confinement in or as if in prison.

After going ninety to nothing for a straight six months and coming to a screeching halt if often find myself wandering around the house in a daze.  Oh, there's still plenty to be done, but our funds are still on life support after the last big push to get us into the house so projects are moving slowly.  That, and it's finally okay for us to take a break.  Last Sunday, we did absolutely nothing.  Except go to church.  After that we did absolutely nothing.  After not taking a single day off just to rest, I think that's alright.  It's kind of like when God created everything, but on a much, much smaller scale.  On the seventh day He rested.  Well, for us it's during the seventh month we rested.  I'm a little rusty at how exactly to rest and occasionally completely shut down.  My eyes are still open, but I'm doing a lot of blank staring these days. 

There are still a lot of things we could be doing, like finishing the bathroom surround, making curtains, hanging doors, but our batteries are just completely drained.  I think my batteries are solar powered though, so I'll requires some real sunlight.  A little outdoor heat would be nice too.  And maybe a little live greenery.  And chocolate, that always helps.  One of these days we'll get back into the swing of things


  1. just checking back in with you all!

    our barn house didn't work out (no footers under the old barn). our new house didn't work out - too many reasons.

    now we're back to the OLD 137 + yr old cottage and about 950 square feet.

    remember the pain and aches? enjoy cabin fever! lol.
