for you pook…
She slept through the night!! Last week she got really good at it, but then after a weekend full of off-her-schedule-napping she woke up many times in the night and i was sad that she wouldn’t go back to her new found sleep…she did! Go My!
I pack between one and ten boxes a day, never in the same time frame and almost exclusively while my children (at least some) are awake and around. Josiah often watches and always asks if the stuff is for the new house…he is just as excited for his new room and his new pool!
I have been online window shopping for so many things the past few months- for this new house- and it’s almost time to pull the trigger. Eeek. I have equal parts excitement and nervousness…because I only want to fill my home with what I absolutely love.
Speaking of making wrong decisions- I picked a bad paint color for most of our entire house but thankfully we noticed soon enough and got to pick another one. The issue was coverage…it was a “white” but didn’t go on well- and the more coats of paint they tried, the more yellowish it looked. Gross. I never knew how many white paints exist until this month. Ugh. But, thankfully my second choice is perfect.
Next up with the house is flooring- carpet upstairs and wood floors downstairs. I cannot wait to see the freshness and clean lines of continuity…the previous owner had different flooring in every room upstairs and downstairs- just odd.
Josiah made me proud in his egg hunt efforts on Easter. Last year we had to basically coax him into picking up more then 5 eggs (that was Regan this year- who was only concerned with one random car toy) but this year, he went to town! And we have a bucket of candy to prove it…my favorite.
I went grocery shopping last week and it was enjoyable. That is a miracle, since I’ve hated it since we moved to NJ. We use a delivery service that works perfectly and cuts out the 3 kids in a store and/or wasting my free time in a crowded bustling food store…but I think every once in awhile, I will go to one.
Last night my new bible study began- another Beth Moore- Jesus My One and Only that I have done before- only about 4+ years ago, but decided I am in such a different phase of life that I’m sure it’ll be very different as I go through the homework. I’m excited!
I saw Divergent on Saturday- so good. But I think reading the book actually kinda ruined the suspense of the movie for me this time around. I want Bart to see it, because I think he’ll love it…it’s from such a brilliantly written book.
I cannot wait for warm weather so that I can stop putting my boys in pants. All Josiah’s pants are getting too short but I am refusing to buy more until the fall. Regan has it made because he gets the hand-me-downs, so when I notice his pants are riding high, it’s an easy fix. Josiah…not so much. Poor kid. His rain boots are a life saver. Needless to say, shorts will be a welcome addition.
