Life Update

It's over. All of my craziness: Done! Yea!

The musical was over on May 1st. The show went well. The kids were/are great. I'm glad to be able to spend more time with Parker, but I miss the University kids tremendously. I think Parker misses them too! :)

We are moved. It was not the world's more organized move, but everything made it to the new house. There are still boxes everywhere. Parker's toys are still just spread all over her new toy room with no specific place. The clothes are all catty-wompus in the closet. There are tons of mini shampoos etc all over the floor of our bathroom. You get the picture. But, we are in and we even ate a dinner at home on Monday night. Shocking. We haven't done that in forever.

Parker seems to be adjusting pretty well, both to the new house and to her new/temporary babysitter - Aunt Sally. She had a hard time sleeping in her room the first few nights, but I think it was a combination of new house, little time with moms and this horrible cold/sinus snotty, cough thing that she woke up with the morning we moved. (Great timing!) She has made it through the last two nights in her room by herself. However, she wants to sleep on the floor. We put a pillow and blanket down there with her animals, but by morning, she has migrated to the middle of the room leaving her "bed" behind. It makes me feel like a bad parent, but she is sleeping, so whatever works I guess.

We really like the house. We've had a couple minor issues with the water heater, but those have been resolved and things are good. I'm getting anxious to get everything in its place and to get things painted (although I can't decide on colors....) I HATE living in an all white house. Hopefully, my wonderful sister will come soon and help us with that! My Dad came down Thursday right after we closed and painted Parker's room, so that's done. I think we are going to go shopping this weekend and get her a few things for it. We're trying to get rid of some of the "baby" things and make it more toddler-y. Parker's pretty cute about it. She will say "Grandpa paint it" as she pats the wall. :) We also need window coverings of some kind as we have these giant, beautiful windows (that everyone can see in and let in WAY too much light in the morning!) Right now, they are covered with broken down boxes. That's Klassy.

My Kindergarten program was yesterday. So, now I just have to make it through the last couple of weeks of school, which shouldn't be a problem now that the programs are over. :)

So, that's what we've been up to. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks things will start getting back to normal.

Congrats on your move!

It must be mandatory for kids to get sick when you move. William had explosive diarrhea for a week when we moved. That was fun.

Oh congratulations! I love it, so classy it's Klassy! HAHAHA! That may be us in 6 months...we may spend all our money on the house and not have money for curtains. Smart idea about the boxes, sheets work too! I can't wait to see the new place!

So glad that you're getting settled and are feeling less stressed! Whenever you're up for guests, we'd love to come see the new place.
