thank you sonja LOL!! adding them to my daily regimen of shopping LOL...I still have trouble shopping online....but I am trying to get better LOL I now get 2 kit clubs that I love from online so it can't be that bad right LOL
Hello ladies, I went to M's and HL and all I got was a few chipboard albums because they were only .20 cents like who could pass that up lol I only found 3 I would have bought them all lol.. anyways a small 80 cents is all I spent (got some clearance bling too...but I am sad I really wanted some cute Christmas ebellies and Basketball but I must be too picky becasue I didn't like any thing at either store! CRAZY! I am going shopping online! lol
I posted a LO this morning. It's an ode to Alissa - it's her birthday today!!!!!!!!!
Packing is a PAIN! I moved a lot when I was younger but now that I'm married with a kid it's a PAIN. Did I mention that already? Anyway, the good thing that's coming out of it is my husband is throwing away/donating junk. Our garage is looking better now that we are moving!! LOL
So hoping all this anxiety will be worth it. I'll let you know once we get into the house. Or maybe that's an if we get into the house. Everyone says we got the hard part over with - selling our house. But honestly, that was the easy part. Our house is clean, cute and available. (Am I biased?) Houses that we looked at weren't clean, cute and a lonnngggg wait to get them. Except for the one we want. It's need an upgrade but nothing a fresh coat of paint and new carpet can't take care of.
So to make a long story even longer, we sold our house and have no place to go but an expensive hotel room or expensive RV lot. That's what's really bumming me out. I'm feeling homeless and out of sorts. BUT, we wanted to do this for our family so I'm trying to tell myself it will all be worth it in the end.
Somebody scrap me a "sob" story!! Thanks for reading my post! (I KNOW it could be worse - so I'm trying to stay positive).
Vivian Try to make your temporary living situation a mini vacation. We've been there several times with 3 boys. We'd try a new resturant, park, use the hotel pool-something adventurous everyday. Hope that helps.
Do you have a son? how old?
Vivian, I agree with what Tina is saying...make it an adventure!! Although I can totally understand why your feeling anxious
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALISSA!! Hope you have an absolutely amazing day!!
Shayla i hope you restrained yourself...ahh who am i kidding hahaha!! i cant control myself in the least...the good news for us is me and hubby cleaned our bedroom last night which was really really needed...so my little scrappy corner will hopefully be easier to organize this weekend!
I am making an executive decision (cause I am the hostess so I can) - when giving me amounts please round up or down to the nearest dollar - I don't really want to be figuring out cents - every little extra second is time I should be scrapping lol
Vivian, I saw your blog this morning and left some love. Your LO is gorgeous. As for moving, two years ago we moved to AZ from CA. We didn't sell our home, so we rented it up, and the movers came and packed up all our stuff and put it into storage. We ended up renting and apartment for months while we searched for our dream home. Three people and two dogs in a small apartment wasn't ideal, (especially with very little furniture) but we made it work. In the end, it was so very worth it. Trust me.
