This morning started early…or I guess it felt like yesterday never ended. Payden kept waking up all night for some reason and the girls were
awake by 5:30 am. Honestly why do kids wake up so early? Why can’t they just
get up at 8 am?? What is so horribly wrong with getting a little extra sleep??
I have a plan when my girls are teenagers and love to sleep in on Saturday’s
that I’m going to set their alarms for 5:30 am just as pay back….ahahaha!
Anyway, yesterday we moved and today I spent the day unpacking as fast as I could. Which I guess isn’t very fast since I have two
toddlers and a baby demanding my attention. My only casualty in moving was when
the bottom of a box popped open while I was carrying it and everything fell
out. A jar of hummus broke and splattered hummus (and glass) all over the
floor. I kind of knew I should have been supporting the bottom of the box
because it was heavy but I didn’t…does anyone ever do that? Know it’s wisest to
do something but you just risk it anyway?
Subconsciously I was thinking “what are the odds of it breaking?”
evidently there were pretty high.
I was thinking today how we move a lot in fact we’ve moved six times in our seven years of marriage. I’d like to say that makes me a pro
at packing and unpacking but really I’ve just gotten lazier. When we first
moved I was super organized with packing, had everything fragile neatly wrapped
in newspaper and I labeled every box. Now I just throw stuff in and the fragile
things I pack with clothes on top.
However I have perfected what to unpack first & second after we’ve moved. The kitchen is first because we love to eat and if that’s
not set up it gets annoying fast. Second I make sure my husbands clothes are
put away because it drives me nuts digging through boxes because he needs a
specific pair of pants.
All in all I got a lot done today, more than I thought I would having to watch the girls too. I even had time to take a quick walk with
them before making supper. It was good to get out of the house and they loved
being able to run around for awhile. Tomorrow on our walk I think we’ll let Tortuga go so he can find a new home.
