So Far Behind


I know.

I haven't updated since before Christmas.

And now it's almost the end of January! Eek!

This time, though, I actually have a great excuse!!! We're moving! My wonderful husband (completely out of the blue) got offered a position in Brandon a few weeks ago and we've been on a whirlwind adventure ever since! The great thing is that it's with the same agency he is currently working for, so he's basically doing a lateral transfer - which means keeping his holidays (YAY!) and no probation (double YAY!). HOWEVER......this has made for mad chaos around our house. Well, not quite. I embellish a little. But getting the house ready to sell, getting it listed, and now trying to keep it clean for showings with three small kids to pick up after each day - No small feat, I assure you!

My sister in law also got engaged two weeks ago - very exciting! We are thrilled for her and future hubby, Mike. But that has also added slightly to the chaos. It's all good chaos. Don't get me wrong! It's just exhausting, so by the time the end of the day rolls around my brain can't really wrap itself around the concept of coming up with a witty blog post. So I apologize. I may be absent-ish for a while as we continue packing and house hunting. Oh, and did I mention that Jared starts his job next Monday? And since we won't be in a new house yet by then it means I'll be here by myself during the week with the kiddos while he stays with family? I'm not looking forward to that aspect of all of this. I love my kids. But I also love my hubby and will miss him dearly. He's a HUGE help with the kids in the evenings and I will be longing for the days when we can be all together again. So pray for us! That our house sells quickly and that I don't completely lose my sanity while he's gone and I'm here alone.

And I promise that once the chaos of this chapter of our life calms down, I will do a major update with pictures of the new place, perhaps some Christmas photos. An update on how the kids are doing.....But for now, my bed is calling me.
