Bell Street is alive and well! :)

Hello, Everyone!
We are all alive and well, despite the neglected blog!
I have been burdened with two weeks of jury duty! It was my last day today, but I was chosen for another jury...it will end one day!
The house is coming along! Stacy and Rodney are ready to be done! They are working day and night to make it so!
Fridge Art is two weeks away! (shameless plug)!!!

Patience is a wise and wonderful teacher!

We are getting very smart! We are learning that we are happy absolutely anywhere we are together! We love our family! We love our friends! We are so lucky to have the opportunity to go through this journey! We think of all of our loved ones that went through similar exercises in patience...not by choice. We are not in a FEMA trailer...we are not in a strange place...we've had no contractor headaches, and no loss heartaches...we are blessed and blissful.
Stacy and Rodney have told us that in order to complete the job in the right way-to be proud of what they are doing and to really finish the great job they have been doing, we should be finished in 6 weeks. That is about the middle of April? We don't have a firm date, but there is still much to be done.

We are OK. Lynn talked with our dear sisters that have opened their home to us for these months. They are OK with us extending our stay until mid-April when lots of house guests start coming down from all over the place. Hopefully we'll be able to move out and clean-up before they turn the place over to another group of homeless family members.

I feel like Stacy and Rodney are our heroes. We are all warriors in this process---even Sophie. I keep thinking that this time away from our home will only make our return sweeter.

Can't wait for the party!!!

Hope to have pictures soon! The boys are working very hard!

Jury Duty, anyone?

I am serving jury duty this month from March 2-16.

Life is such an adventure!

I feel stressed not seeing my kids and with Fridge Art AROUND THE CORNER...Oy!

Progress on the house is going well! Hopefully we'll be home in no time!
