Coincidence Timing

Well–didn’t think I would actually be taking a break when I said I was thinking about it. But, SURPRISE–we had some stuff come up with our move.

  • People who lived here before (they got evicted) clicked the cable lines–no cable, no internet
  • The basement was flooded
  • The master bathroom has no storage (HELLO PINTEREST!) but, it’s the only one with a bathtub so, we have that master room
  • That time of month is back–thanks to being on birth control

But, the upsides are–

  • Hubby has a job
  • We didn’t have to move ANYTHING
  • We have a backyard for the boys to play in
  • They are fixing the basement flooding problem as we speak
  • The child I babysit just put himself to sleep
  • I can get a new prescription for my eyes soon
  • I will be able to get tested for PCOS
  • Cell phones will be back so, in case we have emergencies or I just want to make sure my hubby is safe
  • Planning some fun vacations (thank you Groupon.)
  • We have coffee–and pumpkin spice hot chocolate makes for yummy wake up time

But, for now–that’s about all I have to say. Moving and babysitting is wiping me out–I still have laundry, cleaning, and dishes to do this morning. But, need to work on the garage first so we can all have warm showers.

Although, reading about how many times military families move and knowing how much we move, etc.—I ¬†am definitely not jealous! We have moved 3 times in the last year–I don’t want to move again for a LONG time!!

What makes your moving experience easier? What’s your least favorite part of moving? Any fun vacations, etc. planned for this next year?

That Moving Mess

Exactly how I feel our house looks! It’s nuts—but, I think I am going to give myself motivation & start taking pictures of the rooms before I get started & then an after picture! I am hoping that it’ll give me some motivation & it’ll show my hubby what I’ve really gotten done. I didn’t think of this until I had packed most of the laundry room & the hallway but, it’s what I’ll start doing, before we get to the bathroom, etc. So, here it goes!

I’ll have pictures by tonight of what I’ve gotten done. Just need to keep myself motivated.
