Settling In

Hi Friends,

It has been a while since I've updated on life here.  We moved into our apartment about a month ago and we have been getting settled in.  I move slowly, so it's a long process for us.  We still have quite a few boxes lying around and I don't have any pictures on the walls or decorations up yet.

William started decorating right away.  On the first day in our new apartment he decorated his bookshelf with the few toys that had been unpacked.

I have had some really good days and some really bad days since moving to Atlanta.  I made it to church one Sunday morning (yay!), and then I fainted 5 seconds after the service ended (oops).  I have had some days of autonomic fevers and uncontrolable tremors.  This past weekend I had a bad gastroparesis flare.  Mixed in between those bad days, though, have been some really good days.  On four different days I was able to take care of the children in the afternoon and evening while Will was at work.  That was a huge accomplishment for me, and I was thrilled to be on my own for a short time.  My body has been getting weaker again this week.  We have worked in some extra rest time for me, and we are hoping that I will feel stronger again soon.

Taking it easy on a bad day and getting some snuggles from Adelaide.

You may notice that I am trying a new comment system on my blog.  This week I loaded Disqus onto my blog.  I had been having problems with the blogger comment form, and I hope that this will make commenting easier for my blog readers and for me.  I am excited about it because it has a "reply" feature which will make it much easier for me to respond to those who comment here. 

I hope to be back next week to tell you about the fun project William and I have been doing for school.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Edited to add:  I heard from someone who tried to comment on my blog, but couldn't do so with the new comment form.  If you have trouble commenting, would you please let me know?  You can send me an email at cranberryteatime(at)hotmail(dot)com.  If too many people can't comment on the Disqus form then I will switch back to blogger.  Thanks for your help! :)
