Monday, The new schedule, I think?

     We had fun or at least I had fun taking care of the Schmills.  He is reading simple books and going through stacks of flash cards everyday, so we can get him ready for school.  I was able to really clean out and set up a nursery for the new grand daughter.  I still need to make sheets for the little side bed, but will do that next week when I go up.  We talked about where Hubs and I will be set up if we cannot find a house to buy.  We also stopped by B's house on the way down from Spokane.  B is 35 weeks pregnant with her first.  She has purchased so many goo gaws off the internet that she thinks she needs for this baby.  There is so much stuff in that nursery that there is no room for a baby.  I told her husband if she orders one more thing for the baby to break her arm.  You know the one that she uses to push (BUY).

     So my plan this week is to sew here through Wednesday and then run up to Spokane Thursday and Friday to help with Schmills.  If we end up living with D#2 I will still keep the shop open in Lewiston M-W.  I will sew and take clients at my sisters place.  I can also sew at daughters. Clients will just have to adjust until we find a permanent place.  This will be hard and inconvenient mostly for me.  Clients will adjust as there is no one else that sews and they have to work with me or do without.

     We are now looking at houses where we would have to take out a small loan, to get them.  I really don't want to do that, but running back and forth for 8 months or so also runs into expenses ( and deer) that may not be worth the trouble or may be more trouble then just buying. Right now we are just looking a no decisions have been made.

     Today I have to finish up two wedding dresses and really work on a third.  Having been gone for 4 days puts me into a position of forgetting what I am doing and makes it hard for me to remember what comes next.  I don't know at this point if I can make myself work a schedule like this.

     I need to start looking for boxes to start packing things.  I would like to do a room every week except for the larger furniture.  We are not taking all our furniture and I will get help to move things to storage when the time comes.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. It's getting real for you know, and it will all work out. I forget-where/how close is your oldest daughter to you? I think I know the last about her and her family. I'm just wondering if it makes sense to try and think about moving in with your 2nd daughter with a newborn coming soon, and would that be hard to keep your work going.

    1. She actually has the room and wants my help. I plan on coming back to Lewiston at least three days a week at this point.

  2. Can you rent something until you are in your own house? Things could be stored, too, if you did not want to take it all and move it again. I thought you were going to move in with your sister near you and sew there.

    1. Yes we could but I want to save money not spend it so we can have more to purchase another place. We have a storage unit now.

  3. Best of luck to you all Kim during this time of transition. :)

  4. figure 5 days for each room and make sure you take 24 hrs OFF from packing. OR better yet have a packing party with family and assign each of them rooms.

  5. I vote with the family packing party idea.
    Wishing you much luck and sending best wishes and good thoughts your way. Whatever happens is what was meant to be.

  6. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
