Changes. Over the last 8 months our family has experienced a lot of changes. I haven't always just rolled with the flow. Some of the things that have happened were not easy to take, but we are adjusting - trying to find a rhythm and routine to the days.
Some of the changes are simple things. Hubby is working on ridding our home of this:
and replacing it with this.
Ahhhh. That's better. I love the look and an added bonus is you can enter a closed room with full hands just by using your elbow.
Enough time has elapsed that I feel a little more comfortable finding my way around. The feeling of being constantly lost and disoriented is slowing going away. Now that I can find my way to the local supermarket, you'll find me in the aisles still looking confused.
We have found a couple of places to purchase Red Vines - the official movie candy for our family.
Do not confuse them with that other brand. They are not the same and there is no substitute. We didn't have to change our brand of mayonnaise. That's because it just goes by an alias east of the Rockies. I am perplexed by Vermont cheddar cheese. Why is it white? Oh, it tastes like cheddar, but confusing to the eye. I have learned to look deeply into the refrigerator case until I find the orange cheddar.
Then there is the mystery of tortillas.
Why is it heralded that there are 10 not 8 in the package? Tortillas are usually sold by the dozen out west. Eight is the number for hamburger buns or sandwich rolls not tortillas. Still I'm grateful to find them at all. Things like burritos have reached 'comfort food' status. We are used to having a choice of this, this, this and this all within a little more than a block. Now we drive 18 miles to the closest Taco Bell.
It's a good thing I still have quilting.
It has a universal language all around the world.
