We’ve Unpacked the Last Box

On July 20, we moved from Antioch to “Salem” (the name I’m using for the town in which we now live). The moving experience was slightly less horrendous than the one we had moving from New Hampshire to California back in 2004. This time around, the movers were three hours late, meaning they didn’t leave our … Continue reading

We Found a Place! And Other Updates

Adding On, An Update

Back on December 8th, I wrote the post Adding On. A lot of people have been asking for more photos and progress. I posted 55 photos on Facebook today. Here, I’m going to post one photo for each day that I took photos. I take photos every day work is done. However, because of the … Continue reading

Latest News from the Chittister Household

The latest news is, the Chittister household is very messy! Many of my friends and family have been requesting add-on pictures, and I will post some this weekend. We now have a room with wooden walls, and our dining room has an L-shape cut out of the ceiling. Firefly figured out how to get in … Continue reading
