Where have I been? Moving! We've spent the last week making the first of two moves for our little family. It took us 6 days to get everything out of our condo, get it professionally cleaned, and carpets steamed. Meanwhile, we are in a cute little rental house, across the street from our good friends which is very fun. However, the house hadn't really been lived in for a long time, so there is no garbage disposal or dishwasher. The washer dryer hookups needed 'tweaking', as did cable hookups, the shower didn't work, and the toilet was questionable at best. In the past week, we've handled those charming details (except for the kitchen, which we'll just live with). Whew! In early March, we'll move to our new house.
I'm so glad to be out of our condo. There were some nice things about it, but it definitely wasn't the right home for us. We were on the second floor, and did not have any 'green space.' I'm sure no one reading has ever been in that situation with a child, but the affect it has on your quality of life it pretty wild. There's nothing like being able to send your child outside to just run and play. It kind of just trumps everything.
Work has been crazy, so there hasn't been much of a chance to breathe, and probably won't be until Thanksgiving. I have not been taking care of myself, and it shows, so my plan this weekend is to relax and catch up on things. I actually would love to stay in my pajamas both days! I'm planning to kick up the workouts and healthy eating as well. I'm in need of a cleanse!
