Crashed

I was in the other room packing for our move (btw, we are moving) and I came into the living room to find little Blondie completely crashed out on the floor. If you know this girl, this is no where near typical. Shel is usually like the energizer bunny going on and on and on until we force her into bed. Not today though, evidently she has had it. The scrap of cloth that she has in her hand has been amusing her for the past few days. She found it when I was packing up my sewing things. She wraps it around her finger or arm and pretends that she is bandaging an "owie." Why do we buy toys again?

So this is pretty much what my days consist of lately. I pack 4-5 boxes a day hoping that by the time we move I'll be totally ready. I need to invest in a tape gun though, I'm getting so sick of biting the tape, having it fold over on itself, attack my fingers, and them I'm cursing to get it off only to start the process over again.

I'm so excited to be out of our little apartment. It has been really good to us, but I have felt really bad making my baby sleep everywhere from the closet to the bathroom (she keeps me up at night.) We move in like 10 days. I can't wait to live in a house where I don't have to cart my kids up and down killer stairs in 110 degree weather. Wish us luck!

All those boxes bring back really bad memories for me and sadly I will be stuck in that same situation again. I am dreading it. The house looks great! You guys are going to love it!!! Especially when you come home after grocery shopping. That was my absolute favorite thing once we got a house.

Although I am so excited for your cute new house, I am so sad the move is not next door to us.....it's the old people isn't it. You just couldn't do it.

Yea, a new house is always fun! That's so funny Gretta was born on July 19. Cohen was due on July 16, went overdue was induced on July 19, and my labor was so long and hellish (it ended in a c-section after 3 1/2hrs of pushing) that he was born on the 20th. So they are just a day apart. I totally thought her name was Mae though, after you...is that her middle name?

Congrats. It sure is difficult living in the Az heat, upstairs and in a 2 bedroom apartment. Now you will have room for all of the rad furniture that you guys have collected.
