I know I’ve been MIA the last week – with my blog, Facebook, Twitter…basically all forms of social media! Everything is great here – just super super busy. Since late last week, I have spent ~12 hours / day at our new house – cleaning, unpacking, watering the newly laid sod (seriously hours a day), and letting my son get acquainted with our new home before the big move. I don’t want the huge transition to be too difficult for him – we are going from a 2 BR apartment to a 4-BR, 3,000+ sq foot home. So, we spend all day in the house and head back at his bedtime. Once he’s sleeping, I have been focusing on packing up things here before
going to bed passing out for the night.
It’s been a major challenge to not overdo it. And to be honest, I’m not doing such a great job. It’s so hard to force myself to take breaks – even if it means just putting my feet up. When my son is napping, I get a second wind and try to get as much accomplished as I can. I know I should be resting or even relaxing when he naps.
I’m also BEYOND thankful for having such a fantastic family. My dad spent the better part of the holiday weekend helping my husband with projects around the house – everything from building me my dream closet (pictures to come soon!) to installing a chair rail in AJ’s room! While that was going on my mom and sister were busy cleaning the many, many windows in the house – screens, glass, all those hard-to-reach crevices. They have been in countless hours helping make the house spotless in time for our move. Not to mention we’ve had a handful of surprise visits from my other sister and her daughter – often with Italian ice in hand! I can’t imagine trying to do all this without the help of family.
