UPDATE ON OUR MOVE: I may be posting a bit less in the coming weeks - because we are getting close to having our house ready to go on the real estate market. I feel like it may kill me, but I am working super duper extra super duper hard to get this thing DONE. I'm hoping we can have the interior of the house finished by the end of the month. Then we are praying for rain-less days so we can paint the exterior, which badly needs it. We are still sort of debating whether to move into our tiny house motor home when we put the house on the market, or whether we'll wait till the house is actually sold. Moving before the house sells would make it so much easier to show. (My family is messy, people.) On the other hand, I'm dreading trying to get sleep in the motor coach. (I have one child who keeps everyone up, and then I'm thinking hubby will wake us all up when he gets up for work in the mornings...) So we shall see.

* I, too, was highly skeptical about homeopathy. In fact, if I'd understood this would be the main course of treatment my naturopath was going to recommend, I never would have stepped into her office. I was desperate, though. No conventional doctor could do anything for me. So I started a constitutional homeopathic remedy. And it's working! The healing is slow (probably because I've been sick for so many years), but I am healing. All I can says is this: Just because we don't understand how it works doesn't mean it doesn't work.
