Sleep Is A Wonderful Thing February 2, 2012

I’ve learned in the past week or two that C likes to sleep in the dark. YAY for finally figuring out what makes her sleep, but boo for me.  She’s still in a bassinet right next to my bed and so my nightly ritual of reading before sleeping is all but gone. Frankly, my need to have her near me, to hear her breathing is more important. Someday that will change, but for now my Goodreads account will be oddly silent. So let me live vicariously through you. What are you currently reading?


Back In The Saddle Again

Hello my friends! It’s been a while; 52 days to be exact. That’s right, 52 days since I last put anything up here.  A lot has happened in that time.

Most importantly, Hubs and I have decided to sell our house. It’s been a constant source of stress and pain in our relationship since we purchased it 4 years ago, so it is time. I am so thankful that we are finally seeing the same future.

Unfortunately, this has thrown our lives into a whirlwind! We have agreed to list the house March 1st, but there is a huge list of things that need to be done in those two and a half months. Things like painting almost every room, getting the roof leak fixed, re-carpeting the entire first floor, and tiling the kitchen floor. And there is always the surprises. Like, when we pulled up the carpet in our bedroom we found out parts of our floor were completely rotted. Oh, joy. But, that is our house.

While doing all of this, we finally had the baptism of C.  That ended up bringing it’s own drama with it which we weren’t too thankful for, but in the end I believe it’s brought us closer together.

And of course, we’re still raising E & C, still trying to make most everything from scratch, and still trying to save money while doing it. I can’t promise that I’ll be posting daily while this is going on, but I’m renewing my efforts to at least post weekly so we can keep in touch.

Cross your fingers that the house sells quickly.
