I am feeling rather guilty….

My husband has been working so hard, every night to get all of our things moved from our old house to our new house. Each night, I come home with the kids and there he is, all sweaty and tired and moving things over to our new house. Meanwhile, I tried to start making dinner last night and he tried to tell me to sit down and he would make dinner. Really?! I can certainly make dinner and care for the children if I am not helping move anything anymore. He is such a dear sweet man and I love him. I don’t know how to make it up to him that he has had to work so hard.  I guess I can try to kick it into high gear tonight and put a bunch of things away. This has been a stressful two weeks. I guess the other thing I can do is promise him that we won’t move again until we are old and gray. I make him move a lot. I get antsy but financially, moving is not the greatest so we need to stay put. I will be blessing my home tonight with some organizing and putting away. What did you to bless your home today?

I confess…..I am a bit of a slob

We made it! Mostly…..

We decided to move over the last weekend because we really needed to. We got some help in the form of a few friends with muscles and we moved the majority of the our things to the new house. I feel really good over there even though it is complete pandemonium!

I am going to post this house tour as a totally honest “before” picture. I would like to tell you that this isn’t what my house normally looks like and that it only looks like this because we just moved but that isn’t really the case. Although I am determined to turn over a new leaf in our new home, I have been known to be bit of a slob.

I am one of those who can’t have someone drop by because my house looks like a bomb went off unless it is 10:00 am on a Saturday and I just cleaned. I have started and stopped the Flylady system about 500 times trying to be better (yes Flylady, I am in CHAOS! Thanks for reminding me!)

I really do like a clean home and I love to bless my family this way. I am going to try to be better, one step at a time. May be time for Flylady try number 501. The habit of the month is laundry. Really? I have to do a load everyday? Not just 10 loads on Sunday? Oh alright….. At least August is almost over, I mostly won’t have time for that habit to take hold. Maybe we will just catch up with the September habit. 😉

What better way to confess to being a slob than with an audience right? I am linking up with others over at Keeping it Simple.

It’s Ours!

I can hardly believe it but it’s true. I am so excited to show pictures of it to you!  I am truly amazed and if it weren’t the fact that I have these keys, I wouldn’t believe it is true. I guess it was in His plan after all. Just goes to show you that you really have no idea so it is best to just let go.

That being said, I have never been so happy to have a set of keys in my hand as I am this afternoon. Except maybe the other times I have purchased houses. I am going to move a few things over there just for the heck of it tonight. Because I can! My money says Scott will move the entire garage over there today, because he can. We have so much to do now.  I am just glad that one of those things isn’t changing the name of the blog because we aren’t living on Mills Landing any longer!
