Short and Sweet

Posted on December 29, 2012 by prairiemoonquilts in Prairie Moon Ranch, Travels

Already starting another new chapter!

Since My Cowboy fell so gravely ill right after I arrived in Nebraska, it became impossible for him to work, which means you can’t keep your 10-hour-a-day/7-day-a-week ranch job, which means you don’t get to keep the house that comes with said job, which means you just need to regroup and start over.

So that’s what we’re doing.

We’re back in Missouri.

There’s a new Prairie Moon Ranch.

With a huge house, in which I’ll have a brand new huge studio.

My Cowboy is recuperating from his heart surgery, with more medical stuff yet to come, I’m sure. But we’re closer to his doctors here, and closer to family, which should all help.

Once again, I’m not unpacked, and nowhere near organized. I don’t recommend moving twice within 2 months. And even though I learned to pack all the coffee-making supplies together, that doesn’t really help if you can’t find the box!

I’ll be back with more news on all this later, and pictures! Oh, and I’m never moving again! (Famous last words?)

    Shelly, I am sorry your move back to MO had to be under such circumstances. Sounds like it will be nice to be close to family once again and you will have a new studio to arrange! Best wishes for your cowboy and his health this coming New Year.

    Shelly, I am glad you are back! Not glad about the circumstances, though. Hope your Cowboy recuperates fast!! So happy for your new studio! Can’t wait for pics.

    WOW! Life is certainly what happens while we are making other plans. I wish the best to you both. A new sewing room is a nice bonus to all the challenges. In one of the Little House books, I believe, Pa says, “There is no great loss without some small gain.”

  6. Shelly–I’m so sorry you’re facing more challenges than most could handle. I truly hope things are much, much better very soon!

    oh my goodness!!! I know you are glad to be home, but I’m so sorry to hear about your cowboy. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    So….. Do I need to drive down with a spare coffeemaker, filters and coffee??? If you don’t find the box by New Year’s Day, I’m driving down. Of course, by that time you will be weaned off caffeine. I’m not much help.

    Bless your heart, you have really been on a roller coaster! Prayers for your Cowboys quick recovery and your sanity!!! Moving twice in two months doesn’t bear thinking about!!!
