Today was moving day and I was hoping we could get it all done in one day. HA, who was I kidding we have so much junk! (even after two garage sales)
The day started off with an unexpected guest. I was not expecting her in fact I don't even like her. I haven't seen her in two years and she usually doesn't show up till my babies are at least 5 or 6 months. But no, she had to arrive early and on moving day! Thanks for the inconvenience Aunt Red. (errrrrr)
Then Justin and Faith were feeling sick all day with some sort of flu. Justin kept having to stop and rest because he was getting so dizzy. Finley was extra fussy today because of her shots she got yesterday. Then Austin was messing around with a pencil and stabbed himself in the hand with it. Now his hand is looking infected, his lip is cut from football and he has a sore foot. (Thanks to Aunt Brianna for nursing him back to health)
On top of all that I have been having nightmares.
One of the things we love the most about the new house is the backyard and the pool.
We're all part fish and love to swim, but I have my nightmares about the little ones. I worry all the time that they will wander where they shouldn't. I have nightmares of the unthinkable. We bought alarms for all the back doors, and Justin is checking in on some other safety things. We have given the other children strict notice that they are NOT to go outside without our permission or they will lose every single privilege they have!!! The alarm will sound anyway, but still....
My nightmares are prevalent, warning me to be extra careful, it only takes one second, especially Landen that kid is (excuse my language) hell on wheels, gotta watch him very closely.
In fact the first thing he said when he saw the house was, "oh cool, I'm gonna swing from that like Spiderman." (talking about the chandelier hanging from the upstairs vaulted ceiling)
We will be going out tomorrow to buy baby gates and safety nets. (ok I shouldn't joke about this)
We are almost done and I have to say thanks to Justin's NEW steroid friends at the gym (kidding) Notice I say NEW friends, that's because all the old one's know better they have moved us plenty of times before. Justin's friend Mike brought a diesel truck so a big thanks to him and to all our family who well, are obligated (haha) to help. Everyone got assigned a kid and those with no kids had to march up and down the stairs carrying boxes and listen to me bark out orders. I was able to get a lot done with all the help so THANK YOU to everyone!
Here's Captain Austin's room
and Princess Faith's room
I will be working on Landen's room and the girls nursery tomorrow. I will post pictures later of the rest of the house.
Let's hope tomorrow goes better. I pray everyone wakes up happy and healthy and ready to move...I'm off to bed! Whew...
