Just Keep Swimming...

I spent most of my day unpacking the kitchen. When my morning started, this was my view of the house.
A few hours later, this was my view.
And a few hours later…
And now…
As you can see, I’ve got my work cut out for me. I’d love to stay and chat, but I’m busy trying to keep my head above water. As my good friend Jill reminded me, I’ve got to ‘just keep swimming’. Just unpack one box. And then another. And then another. And another. And hopefully, in 6 weeks or so, I’ll be able to see my kitchen counters again.
I promise that I’ll fill you in on all the moving details later, but tomorrow’s trash day and I’ve got to make sure that our rubbish bin is as full as possible. Thank you all for your words of encouragement, your prayers, and positive thoughts. For now, there’s not much I can do except ‘just keep swimming’. Anyone else’s world view come from the script of Finding Nemo?
Here are a few pictures to demonstrate the status of our unpacking.

  1. It looks like you've got a lot done! You should feel proud of yourself. You'll get it looking like home in no time. Good luck!

  2. I sing the "just keep swimming" song on a daily basis...its actually a little bit of a joke with me and josh...love you
