Man oh man it’s been quite the week. I have not had a day off in quite a while…well according to the schedule I was off, but because my SM put me in charge of our tree for the Festival of Trees, I had to go and decorate on that one day off. I have today off but we are moving tomorrow. I get to pack and pack and AUGH! I have our bedroom, closet, hall closet all completely finished (with the exception of such things as the lamps and alarm clocks) I am about to start on R’s room, but I have no drive. I wish we had a U-Haul now or something else I could load all the stuff I have packed up into so I can have more of a blank canvas instead of tripping over everything.

I sent R away to a friend’s house for the afternoon. It’s been impossible to pack with her here, she wants to play and be entertained and needing her attention, I just can’t do two things at once, as much as I wish I could. I feel bad for sending her off, and I think I am going to have a gal friend watch her overnight so we can pack, I can get some good sleep for opening tomorrow and so A doesn't have to worry about her while the guys are all moving the crud!

In the world of R…she’s crawling!!! Alright, not really, she gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth (started two or three days ago…Tuesday I think) and yesterday she took two steps and went SPLAT, followed by lots of crying. Part of it probably was my jumping up and down and shouting after she flopped but man oh man! She was fantastic! I can’t believe she’s doing this sort of stuff already. I am so not ready. I guess it’s a good thing we are moving to a new place which will hopefully be more baby proof than the place we are in now. Then again she will have to learn her limits too.

Well, I took long enough of a break (I feel like a nap but am trying to at least get R’s room and maybe the bathroom done before naps because A will get upset if I don’t do a ton of work today….although he hasn’t helped me) I will hopefully post pics of the new place and all that jazz once we get settled in!
