Update from the cloudy day

It's been a while since I've posted anything.  It's not that I haven't finished things, or wanted to, but sometimes the words fail.  Sometimes time won't allow enough creativity to flow.  Sometimes I forget.  In any event, Christmas is just around the corner, and I'm trying to finish up a couple of gifts.  I have found little time while homeschooling and doing chores to work on things.  But, here is the plan.  Once Christmas is over (this week), next week is about planning.  I have to plan the next homeschooling semester, my homeschool co-op class, my Etsy shop, and a bill paying schedule (I've been flying by the seat of my pants for the past few months on that one, and need to get a better grasp about what's due when).  I am having trouble finding things as well, like my contacts.  I know I have a whole bunch of them somewhere, but I cannot find the box.  I don't have room to unpack everything, as we do not live in our own house.

Which is my chief complaint at the moment.  Changing lifestyles, I knew things would be hard.  I knew things would be difficult.  But some of this I did not expect.  I guess there are always unexpected circumstances with a major change.  College has that.  Marriage does too.  I would call these "growing pains" except it's not from growth.  It's from pruning.  Maybe these are just "pruning pains."  Is there such a thing?  Maybe it's shock from pruning.  That I know really happens.  How are your holiday plans coming?
