We Moved...

Things have been so crazy lately.  I haven't posted on my deals blog in a few weeks.  I hate that.  I have spent the last little while spending time with our family.  My nephew got baptized and the whole family was in town for it.  We haven't all been together since Nov 2008 when Kari was Married.  It is hard to get 6 kids together with all the spouses and kids included!  It was fun and we all got along!  That's hard! 

Then I spent all last week packing up our house (and not doing a very good job).  We have moved to Vidor and are house sitting for my Uncle while he works out of town for a while.  It's a bigger place and has central air instead of window units!  Saturday I was up before 7 because I couldn't sleep.  I knew I had tons more to do before our families came to help us move.  Thankfully Mom came early and helped me finish packing and getting things ready.  She even cleaned my nasty bathrooms for me!  Thanks Mom!  My inlaws came and helped us and were a great help and even my older sister made a load for us.  I had no clue how much stuff she could fit in her van!!  Let's just say she is an expert packer!  My lil sister kept Parker for me so that he would be out of the way!  I am so thankful to everyone who helped us get ready to move, helped us move and even helped us unpack!  Words cannot express how thankful we are and how much it means to us.

Parker is having a hard time getting used to the new house.  We have always (well about 98% of the time) been able to give him a pacifier and put him in bed at nap time and night time with no crying and he would go to sleep.  That isn't the case here.  He knows when we are going to put him in bed.  He cries and makes the sad face.  Today at naptime he held onto the door frame because he didn't want to go in his room.  Hopefully he will be used to it soon! 

We have gotten a lot unpacked.  I still have stuff in the kitchen that I need to organize and I need to finish our room, but things are mostly done and that's a relief to me.  I hate clutter and messes everywhere!

I am nervous about being in a new place and going to a new ward at church.  I don't do well with new people and places.  I tend to be shy around people I don't know and it's hard for me to make friends sometimes. 

Luckily, it's not that much further for Adam to drive to work and we are pretty much half way between both of our parents.  His are about 20-25 minutes away and mine are 30-35 minutes away.  It's hard being far away from my family!  At least it's only 30-35 minutes and not hours!! 

Well that's why our blogging life has been put to a halt and my deals blog has been put on pause!  Sorry folks!  One day my life will be back to normal (whatever normal is or was haha).

Let Parker buy a toy for his room and have him bring it into his room. It might help him adjust.
