Updating before I'm punched

OK! OK! I'm here! Sheesh! I'm updating! Things have been a bit...hectic shall we say? We're now in ta-town trying to get settled at my parents' house. It's a long process, let me tell ya! We WILL, however, be back in Olathe this weekend and will be at church.

Things are going alright here. My mom is being patient and trying not to go too crazy with us here. We're doing laundry and such today and will go to the grocery store when Conrey wakes up. It's just kind of normal life for us, but with an extra set of hands, which is really nice!

Mark is liking his job okay. It's always an adjustment starting at a new company. Being in a new city adds to the challenges as he has gotten lost a few times. He's taking it all in stride, though. We'll go to his parents' house Saturday night for our usual family time and I know he's looking forward to that.

The kids are adjusting well. Who WOULDN'T adjust well to being spoiled rotten?!? Cassie had trouble with nap time the first 2 days, but was much better yesterday, so I think she's adjusting and realizing that we have to go about normal life even here at Grannie and Grandpa's house.

Conrey is STILL trying to get some teeth. The poor guy is really in agony with it, but still being really good and not too fussy. He's decently close to sitting alone. He really wants to and can for 10-15 seconds before hunching over and complaining that he can no longer breathe because of his ginormous belly!

Me? I'm just trying to be helpful around here and trying to keep all of the kids messes confined to 1 room. It's a struggle, but we're managing. We'll do some fall baking next week and that should be fun.

Well, there's an update. Not too exciting, but an update nonetheless. The washer is done and I must go change over the laundry. Everyone take care and we'll "talk" soon!

Oh, I completely feel you on the struggles of living with your parents again :)

Will you guys be staying there until your house sells?

Yay for updates all around today!!! I am glad things are working out to this point. I can not imagine living with my parents again. Hopefully it will continue to go so smoothly!

I've been thinking about you often and will hope and pray everything else falls into place soon.

FYI, I want to see photos of your kids more often now too :)

FYI #2, we're having cinnamon toast crunch for today's snack!

I'm so excited that you're back in town! We'll have to get our kids together sometime.

Enjoy the time with your Mom. Sometimes two grown women in one house is difficult, have patience and be full of love! Congrats on the move and I'll pray for your house in KC to sell.
LOVE YA, Becky

Well, rats. I am in Wichita this weekend... and I was hoping to see you. I just drove through Olathe this week, too.

I hope you enjoy your weekend visit to your former homestead, and come back to the new situation refreshed.

Maybe I can catch you next time?
