maison petit cirque


Somebody save me, I am trapped in the never ending move!  Everything needs cleaned in two different houses in two different towns. I can't find Birdie's pants and tee shirts, Smootch's underwear or my bras.  In the midst of it I had a home school facilitor visit today on lawn chairs with a card table while Birdie dumped a pot of hot chai off the stove and onto himself.  He's fine and did not require emergency room but he did make me look like the world's worst parent plus made the entire kitchen floor sticky.  Everything is either needing packed or unpacked and the cat keep hissing at me.  The cat hates to move and now he hates me.

Can't say I blame him.

Okay, breathing... Calming...

I will be back as soon as I figure out where I am.  And then I can show you the yard I bought, which also happened to have an itty bitty fun house on it.  Until then, breathing...


  1. "just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming".

    Put in time where it needs be and I wish you serenity.

  2. wow, i never heard of a home school facilitator!! that sounds scary.

    godspeed, see the humour as I know you can. that always helps me when things are ridiculous.

    here's my awful/funny move-in story from a few years ago:
    hope it makes you laugh

  3. Breathing is good, definitely keep doing that. Sending much love and positivity your way!

  4. Right, keep that oxygen coming...meet the small goals and somehow the big ones happen!!

  5. Yay! A new home! Can't wait to visit! (just to add some more stress.) FWIW, we have the same facilitator and he has seem into my home as well, so you are all good.

    Birdie doesn't really like clothes and bras are over rated and who needs underwear everyday? So glad Birdie is okay! The cat will be fine once he has a place to hide from the kids and stuff will move even when not packed neatly. Putting stuff on the lawn with a sign that reads, "Free" is a great way to not have to move it.

    So excited to hear about the yard. Is it fenced? Wish I could come and help you clean but I think we would just add to the mess.

    Sending you clean thoughts!

  6. oh, things will calm down very soon, i know it. moving is one of the hardest things in the world.
    poor birdie. bless him.

    can't wait to see the itty bitty house!

  7. I will be doing the same thing in a month. Moving to a rental in another state because the housing market is so terrible we can't sell ours.
