Home Sweet Home

We spent the first night in the new house last night and I can't say that I got much sleep. We were all so tired we went to bed at a decent hour, but at about 3:00am Ethan started crying and didn't really stop even when he got in bed with us. I think that the move has been stressful on him--he's been throwing tantrums this last week like never before. Lianne helped me out so much today and we can actually see the floor in the front room and in Laina's room. Tomorrow will be another busy day. The satellite guy is coming, we have to get the brakes to my van worked on, I have to clean the old house, and we have to move Paul's pickup over here on the trailer (the key won't go in all the way, so it won't start). At least I have a great new house to come home to and the exercise keeps me in shape.

The Last Haul

I haven't had time to post since we've been moving all week. It's nice that we are only moving two blocks, but it seems to make it more disorganized. I find myself just throwing stuff in boxes as I find it which may or may not be in it's rightful home at the time. This weekend we are moving our large furniture that requires an additional man's help--thank you Shawn from Paul's work. I'm trying to get everything else out of here so that we can spend our first night at the new house Friday. I will try to remember to take pictures of the girls' crazy hair for school today. Until then it's happy packing and unpacking.

I Hate Moving, but the Kids Love It

The exodus has begun. I never know where to put anything and I hate having a mess at two residents at once. Ethan had a blast picking up boxes and putting them on the trailer (little did he know that it was one empty box and we just kept throwing it back onto the pile when he wasn't looking). Laina felt like such a big girl helping daddy unload everything and Laurin helped clean up the new house before I even came over. Thank you God for my wonderful children.

Potty Mouth

We were in the store yesterday and Ethan was trying to climb out of the shopping cart. Instead of thanking Laurin for saving him from certain doom, Ethan repaid her by calling her a butthead. He must have been working on the exact pronunciation because there was no doubt what he said, unlike most of the words he uses.

Take a Look

For anyone who reads my blog and has perused my e-store, I am trying to get rid of as much as I can in anticipation of our move. I am taking almost my whole inventory to a consignment sale on Friday, so if you've had your eye on something it may be gone by the end of the week. Thanks to everyone who has bought from me or even just looked. The link to my store is

Something Smells

I was surprised Friday when I went to pick up Laina from school and was 402 was being blocked by police cars and fire engines just down the block. I soon figured out what the problem was when I was about choked by the smell of natural gas. We could smell natural gas very strongly only a block north of us, but we were considered safe where we were. I was very worried when I found out that Paul was on the scene in the ambulance, especially when he told me that they were going to weld a cap on the gas line. Welding near natural gas just doesn't seem like a good thing to me, but everything went okay with the repairs and Paul came home in one piece.
