Well, I’ve moved across the country with 3 kids in tow (and one husband) to Wisconsin. (The week after Christmas) Where we all slept on the floor for the first days, got the flu (AGAIN),switched time zones, but gained something hugely awesome and refreshing: family time! (and frostbite…)

My favorite plant  looked a lot like me after the 19hour car ride.

Shocked. Tired. Dehydrated. Almost dead.

Our furniture didn’t arrive for 5 days so we ate our meals on the floor. During the days when Camera Guy was at work, the kids and I would literally have what felt like “sit ins”. Just sitting on our bums in the kitchen. Rocking back and forth to the White Album “Revolution No.9” singing “Dontcha know its gonna be….. all right….” We all did awesome at channeling our inner hippies although I definitely could use a chiropractor now.

HERE’S A VIDEO OF IT

The kids have been doing fine. They were out of sorts for a couple of nights needing nightlights, doors open, a million cups of water and trips to the bathroom…but now they’re back to themselves. Here they are being their emo selves playing their music in pajamas at 4 o’ clock in the evening.

Listening to the Beatles. Who else? Really.

The new place is nice. I like the layout, I just hate this

I have a problem with superfluous space. Really. What a waste of 8 inches!

(Changing topics quickly) Twitter. I’m in love. Because I’m following Masterpiece PBS now  since Camera Guy (YES IT IS TRUE!) and I are completely enthralled and slightly (ok super) addicted to Downton Abbey… I get every stinkin update on my phone… and well nothing makes a day like getting a tweet that you can now view SEASON 3 online: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/watch-online/full-episodes/downton-abbey-season-3-episode-1/

Also. Are you following me on Twitter? Really you should be. I mean why would you want to miss a tweet like this pic from Tom’s first day at his new job:

Yes. This happened. Best part was: this is how he showed up for his WI state mandatory drug test.

Also. I just checked the site stats and the blog is only 803 views away from being 10K views! This is so exciting!! SO spread the word about a.thimons. com…. bring me followers and I will bring you Oreos. Just kidding. I can’t. But I can maybe send you some bibbed snowpants. Which were totally recommend for me to wear out here. Like these:

NO. NEVER. NO.

  1. Am! We have the same gap between our stove and countertop! It gets so groady in there, I hate it.

    I also hate that you moved to A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE.

  2. I actually totally recommend the snow pants…I have a pair and I love them!!! Weird…the CA girl in me just died a little. In anycase lets plan a get together soon. I am due to pop out a child any day now so as soon as baby is born we are coming to see you!!!

  3. HAHAHA Oh my gosh! I love your family… We heard that the high next week is going to be -4 degrees where you are! I can’t even imagine… I hope everything is going well! Love, Amy
