Things are super crazy right now, with the move coming up on Monday. Frank and I end up stopping by the house multiple times a day to check on our contractor’s progress, measure for drapes, pull up carpet squares, and many other tasks that present themselves. We got a new garage door yesterday, at which point we decided I probably wouldn’t be able to park the Pilot in the garage. Heath can get it in and out, but I’m too chicken to try yet. I have a feeling I will be downsizing soon. We may even go to one car, since Heath will be really close to his new office. We have been mapping out bus and bike routes for him to try.
My mom is coming back on Sunday night to help with Frank while we move in. Thank goodness for Gammie! Poor Frank is very frustrated every time we go to the house, as he is not allowed to touch anything (wet paint), climb on anything (empty shelving does not a ladder make), or stick his fingers in any outlets. I can just imagine how it will be when the movers are bringing in the furniture and boxes.
We are looking forward to the weekend and hope to have time to acknowledge Easter. When Heath’s parents were in town last weekend, we took Frank to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. As most kids his age are, he was a bit hesitant about the overgrown rabbit with goofy glasses and bow tie. He wouldn’t sit in his lap without me, so I ended up in the picture. I was looking especially whale-ish that day, so I will not be posting the photo! Our new neighborhood has a big egg hunt on Saturday morning. I hope the weather is nice for it. We are also planning to go to church for the first time since moving here (so, basically since Christmas…tsk tsk). Fingers crossed that we will get to do these things amongst the growing list of to-do’s.
As you can tell, I’m pretty overwhelmed! Most days I just want to wake up a year from now and see us settled in our house with both kids, our dog, one small car, some good friends, new activities, maybe a new BFF with a sailboat and a house in the mountains…ok, ok that might be pushing it. Oh, and I generally have a large glass of wine in this fantasy, as if there was any doubt!
