Two days until we head out to Nevada. It's been a little chaotic around here, to say the least...there's been lots of packing, of course, last minute appointments, a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's, and as many visits with friends and family as we can squeeze in. Then, my little man decided it was time to get on his feet and start toddling around. All the better to get at all the boxes and help mommy UNpack, I guess. But, I love seeing him walking; it's so cute, and he is so proud of himself! Oh, then, he had to go and get a nasty cold that kept us up all night with a croupy cough which almost sent us to the emergency room. Then I discovered Dimatap and a humidifier can be lifesavers, and we all slept peacefully for the rest of the week.
Now we are down to two days. Time to pack the necessities for our first week. My husband will have to come back to get MORE stuff, but I wanted to just get down there already and try to get settled and find a school for the girls, and just be able to start living normally again. My mom is going to go with us, thank the Lord, and stay for a week. There's no way I could handle everything right now without going into preterm labor or something. In fact, I've had a couple of days with light contractions after doing too much. Mom will help us look at schools, unpack, take care of kids, etc...She is so awesome. It's going to be hard to be so far from her now.
Ok, time to caffeinate, eat, hydrate (in that order) and start packing--or getting ready for church. Oh yeah, it's Sunday. Time for more goodbyes...sigh.
Wow, I sound so dreary. But, really, I'm excited for this adventure. There is lots to look forward too: a new house to make a home, new friends to meet, a new town to explore, a new baby to cuddle! This wild few weeks is almost over. Soon we will be all moved, the girls will be in school, my husband will be working, and I'll be homemaking and mothering to my heart's content. And hopefully blogging all about it!
Back when I can be!
