Is That a Light? Wait...Oh...Yes, I See It!!!!

Yes, dear readers, I see it. A light at the end of the Oh-My-Gosh-Will-This-Unpacking-Ever-End Tunnel!! Yay! I parked my Sequoia outside last night so there'd be room in the garage, told the kids they'd get a dollar for every box they broke down and carried to the garage, and a dollar for every bag they filled with packing paper. Well, at about 11pm last night, we collapsed into bed, and each kid was about $27 richer. Even Thing Four, who was running around in a shirt and a diaper (yes I'm a bad mom but he wanted to go pantsless) wanted to "help."

I ran around a LOT yesterday. Made phone calls, paid bills, set up appointments, got two wreaths for my double front doors (can I say I'm a little disappointed with the Hobby Lobby here? It was just okay.) And did about 932 loads of laundry. Stimulating, I know.

Today's agenda, do about 853 more loads of laundry, get the laundry room unpacked and organized, and try not to eat the whole house while doing it. I am so hungry lately, and I can't figure out why.

Today I also need to find a spectacular "something" for the casual dining room table, because I used what I used to put on it on the fireplace mantle. Just for fun. Its funny how in a new house everything shifts, because the style may be different, or you just figure out that different things go better in places. I noticed a Garden Ridge the other day while I was driving, I need to SO go. The last time I was at a Garden Ridge was 2001 when I lived in Texas. So, yeah, it's been a while!

Time for toast. Happy Tuesday everyone!

The only thing I hate more than packing is UNpacking!

And hooray for Garden Ridge! I love that place!

Why are you a bad mom?? My kids ran around naked at that age.

It is hot down there. I would think you would be a bad mom if you had him fully clothed in that horrid heat/humidity. When we lived in SC, my kids hardly wore clothes. I made them put shirts on if we were going in public, but at home they were naked or in their undies.

Glad you are seeing the end in sight:)

Sounds like you've got everything well in hand.

Every house has its own personality, which then either melds with yours or fights it. So, yeah, you can have the same stuff, but it shifts in every new space.

Enjoy Garden Ridge -- we don't have them around here, but it sound really neat!
