Long overdue

It's Been a while and my last entry said we were thinking of moving .... well we moved !!! We bought a house with an big half acre lot in the middle of town. It's one of those worst houses in the best neighbourhood. But that's okay we are going to do major renos in 2 years and make it what we really want. For the time being all the things that really bother me i'm just going to have to suck it up and know that there is an end in mind. We really love the yard and the upstairs has all been redone it's just the basement that is a dungeon the house is 60m years old. we are in the process of sprucing it up enough to make it liveable. we'll put the scrapbook room, toy room/ family room, laundry room and food storage. I'll post pictures soon.
Aside From that- I'm getting huge!! bending over is starting to get tough. and once I'm picking up toys on the floor and sit down, I'm planted! I'm going nowhere what I've found works best is sittinfg on the floor with a broom and sweeping all the toys and crap in my direction! it works great.

My stress level lately is pretty high for the following reasons
- the move
-lack of the right furniture/ shelves to put the stuff in the boxes.
-2 toddlers, and bing 7 months preg
-potty training
-My husband being in the bishopbric, and working 10 hours a day
-No washer/ dryer, they are in Mexico... we ordered them the 4th of sept they won't be here until at least the 25th, so I've been hauling my launry over to my great friends houses(Thanks Candice, and Leslie) to do it that's an all-day event.
- the rental property, our old house we kept and I've been dealing with the new tenant, which luckily has been relatively smooth.
-sewer back-up (I"m not going into the gross details, but Dale took care of it)
- Normal life still has to go on, house cleaning, dishes( I have no dishwasher either in this new house I might add), My calling which has'nt gotten as much attention as I would like. Van repairs maintanence, which remind me it need an oil change!

This may sound like a list of complaints but I thought about that too and decided I don't have much right to complain when most if not all of these things are blessings. I'm blessed to have such great kids, and have the chance to have a third baby, and we are so blessed to be able to afford another house and keep our old one. And Dale in the bishopbric has been a huge blessing too! It just becomes a little challenging when all of these blessings happen at the same time!

Hey Sara,
Sounds like lot's of fun. I hope the renos are going well. Your kids are so cute and getting so big. When is the big due date? I am so out of the loop I didn't even realize that you were pregnant.
By the way I just started a blog and stole your email from Rhonda. Hope that is a-okay!! Good luck and keep smiling.
