But we're almost there. Yesterday Matt said, "if we can just make it through this week ..." But I must have a few extra minutes if I'm sitting down and documenting this.
*We're in the thick of moving. Our apartment is half bare (it's heavenly and makes me want to yard sale everything!), and the garage at our new house is half full. Here's our house ...
Yes, landscaping is a major priority. And a paw print-less mailbox:).
*Easter was fun. We adopted an idea I came upon where Saturday is candy day and Sunday is about the meaning of the holiday. I think it went well. We had a mini egg hunt inside the empty rooms of our house. This picture is our culmination ...
*A woman in our ward passed along a bag of Sunday clothes just Wes' size. I was thrilled! I'm thinking dapper is a good description for this not-so-little guy ...
*Too much on the plate for sewing or shopping for Easter dresses this year so I resorted to opening up the 5-6 year old clothing bin and pulled out these dresses for Sophie and Kate. They loved them. At first the 5T dress Sophie is wearing was on Kate, but when I could see 3 inches above her knee it was passed on to the 3-year old. I think Kate's is some sort of swim suit cover, or just a casual jumper.
*Car collision late Friday night is causing me to wait from 8-12noon today for the insurance adjuster. Funny thing is I had a feeling a crash was coming minutes before it did. I remember adjusting my lap part of the seat belt because I thought, "boy if I were in a crash this baby wouldn't like it one bit." Good thing I was probably only going 5 mph (in skid mode) as I hit the man who apparently didn't see me and pulled out in front of the car. And thankfully no injuries. My first thought after was, "oh man, this will go on the vehicle report and we won't get as much money for the car when we sell it next month!" Oh well.
*Crazy jobs. Matt and I must have an obsession for crazy jobs to bring in a little extra cash. I won't go into details because I'm more embarrassed than proud of these. But when they come our way we always seem to say, 'okay', we can do that. But thankfully this one is over so no more of this pregnant lady getting her walking exercise through a huge club store at 2 a.m. this morning... why we're doing this right now in the thick of things is beyond me.
*Pollen. It's a good thing none of us has Spring allergies (even Wes isn't exhibiting major symptoms), because the pollen is blanketing the area. I thought the kids had been playing with yellow chalk on the car. Then I looked around and it's everywhere! Our realtor said it happens every year for a week or two.
*37 1/2 weeks. I'm really hoping this baby is late. We just need that much more time to get settled. Sophie was 5 days late, so I'm hoping for that this time too. My due date's the 12th, Matt gives two finals the 13th, then we're home free. Here's to hoping.
