a little stressed out

we are packing up the truck tomorrow evening and I am beginning to stress. Our house is a crazy place. I wander around trying to figure out what needs to be done next. Having kids doesn't really help the situation but there is nothing to be done about that. I just hope I can get this done without having a melt down.
Andrew just said something brilliant! he said "I keep forgetting you're right" I am thinking most people forget I'm right! Anyway, wish me luck with this crazy move, I can't wait until it is over and done!

this week a miracle happened in my house, all 3 of my kids took a nap at the same time! I knew this would not be believed so I took pictures of them before I too took a nap. Also my sweet Ella finally really warmed up to the baby. Don't get me wrong she has been sweet about the baby telling me she is pretty and "I like your baby" but just yesterday she cuddled and hugged Ivy for the first time. Everything with Ella happens on her terms, she is quite the lady. I think this will be great when she is a teen. (please oh please)

Where have we been?

Having 3 kids is busy, I will not lie. This last week was nuts, everyone at our house had the flu except for Ivy and myself, I had a cold. So Steve was in bed for 5 days, both Ella and Drew were sick with fevers, and I was nurse. But even someone as great as myself (hehe) has their breaking point. I lost my cool, got mad, was extremely ornery and was wondering when anyone would ever take care of me. Oh, but no I am the mom and it is a well known fact that mom's get the shaft. I am sorry that I ever gave my mom the shaft, sorry mom.
Last night things started feeling like they were getting back to normal, we had dinner as a family and Steve and I actually had a conversation.
We are moving next weekend, and I am very excited. I just want to go move in now but I don't think the people want me and my kids living with them so I guess we will wait until they are out. One of the things that I am most excited about is our family room in the basement. I have already set down the rules that that is the play room, that is where the toys will be and if they find their way up stairs they will be taken away! Right now in our current situation their are toys everywhere, in the living room, kitchen, family room, in the halls, right at the front door, in my bedroom.... oh it will be a blessed day!
