Step 9: House Warming
Moved Near By?
If you haven't moved too far away, invite yours (and your children's) friends over for simple snacks while your house is still in disarray. Or plan a more organized cookout in a week or two giving you and the kids something to look forward to, and as incentive to unpack and settle in.
Moved Far Away?
If you've moved from a long ways away, pick a date and invite neighbors that you gradually meet for a get-to-know-you party. Ease your stress by asking them to bring a dish, and a copy of the recipe from your new friend.
