Well, all...I'm busy. REALLY, REALLY busy! Between child training (potty, life skills, discipline...you name it, we're training it! We're doing Love and Logic, but more on that later), utility cancelling, transfering, registering, to organizing, room planning, etc. The list just goes on and on with the things that are going on with us. We have gotten permission to shampoo the carpets prior to closing so that we can just MOVE RIGHT IN on Wednesday evening! YAHOO! We're rather excited.
Notice, however, that the first thing on my list was child training. Need I explain what happens to a 2-year-old and even a 7-month-old when they go to live at Grannie and Grandpa's house for 3-1/2 months? UGH! It is not pretty. My children...are not pretty. They have become spoiled, self-indulgent, sometimes unpleasant children and we are not enjoying that aspect of it one bit. Cassie has been so spoiled that we are having to take about 10 steps backward to retrain her how we want her to behave. Conrey has been a huge headache in that Mom and Dad both freak out if he cries for like 2 minutes, so they run to his rescue. All he wants is to be held and to be held NOW! Ugh. So, we've already begun the process of retraining. It's gonna be a long one. We're doing Love and Logic which has it's good points and bad points. I won't go into that all now, but for the most part, I am liking the system. I'm just not incorporating the things that I don't agree with. :) As for potty training...yup...we're still training. Why? Because of the spoiling and the craziness of life. I fully expect her to be 100% trained within like 1-2 weeks of us living in our own home. The bonus? Most of our home does not have carpet. Easier clean up for momma with those accidents! YAY!
We did our closing work last Friday...our buyers do theirs tomorrow. Our bank account should have a nice little increase for the time being. This means a new table and chairs and dresser for us! WOO HOO! We will close on the new house on Wednesday...Lord willing. We are still waiting on 1 item to come in the mail...Mark's W-2 from Home Depot.
Well, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. I'll *try* to update again soon, but we won't have internet at the beginning at our new house, so bear with me.
Oh, and I won an award. More about that SOON! :) Thanks MD!
