We just moved! I’ve been busy packing up the household for the last 2 months. This is not any easy task with 7 people. I think we even are fairly minimalistic for as many people as we have in the family. Our biggest thing is that we have a lot of books and dishes. I love antique dishes. I actually use them, so it isn’t a total waste either. As for books, a combination of having several avid readers and home-schooling with a classic literature based curriculum, it can’t be helped. Some books we get electronically, but the classics? I have to have them. (Let all the true minimalists begin weeping.)
We’ve been the official owners for 8 days now. We spent all week painting the house and kitchen. The process is below:
I still have more painting to do around the house, as well as some furniture. We also have more unpacking to do.
To top it all off, I have two gigs this week. One in WI, on Thursday, and one in Northern IL on Friday. Overall, I have four more scheduled gigs this year, then I will be prepping for some things in my music that will be time-consuming. One of which is songwriting, I haven’t written a whole song since May 2015. The other is the new album release which will absolutely FOR SURE be in April 2017. Until then, I will try to continue to update here on my blog, and will update daily on my social media sites.
I plan on making more posts this week about the house and my gigs. Stay in touch!
