Word(less) Wednesday: Moving is exhausting

It's been a busy week already, starting with an extremely busy weekend. My daughter, Joy, has been asking to live with me for quite a while now. What some of you may not know is that I have been seperated for almost 3 years. The way things shook out is that I have had my son, and Joy stayed with her father. That all changed this past weekend. Both kids are living with me and we are trying to reintegrate as a family. Blessedly, the kids have matured enough that the only thing they fight over now is who is messier in the bathroom (the Boy is winning! ewww! but that's another post).

She didn't chose to move a lot of things, realizing that she still has two residences, but we got her all settled in with a proper bedroom, her clothes, Buddy (the cocker spaniel), and Noel, her guinea pig. No, I am not running Animal Farm, though some days it feels like it.

Today was the first day of school for her. Lancaster schools start about a month earlier than the rest of L.A. County. We got everyone up, dressed, fed and out the door on time. You have no idea what an accomplishment this is for my family.

This photo was taken on Saturday while driving from Long Beach to Lancaster. This proves that she can sleep anywhere and in any position. She stayed that way for about an hour before curling up on the seat, still asleep.
