A few things:
1. Parenting Questions:
I hope you are taking advantage of asking Brenda Nixon your most pressing parenting questions! Remember to post your question as a comment on this post, and Brenda will post her answer (also as a comment, so you might have to keep checking back). It got a little crazy yesterday, so if for some reason your question got overlooked, please email me (click on my profile and it will take you to my email). We'll get you taken care of!
2. An assignment and some points:
The other day my friend Marian (who does not have a blog, but I'm working on her) suggested on this post that my sister Rachel Anne should give Company Girl points for participating in creating a little...umm...shall we say, home sanctuary for our husbands. I sent her idea to Rachel right away.
So RUN DON'T WALK over to Home Sanctuary , because girls, today Rachel is giving 20 points just for doing something that makes you feel like a woman, with bonus points for making him happy! Up to 60 points total! Woohoo! That makes me happy, too! (And when you go over there, tell her I sent you!)
3. Move/Family Update:
And in case you think I just sit and blog all day, here's what's been going on behind the scenes this week:
We've been pulling teeth:
Commandeering Mom's camera with friends (what's new?):
Mostly, I've been PACKING. Depressing to know that my POD has so far to go to get full (doesn't it look pitifully empty?), and I've WORKED SO HARD.
But isn't my worker-man cute? Did I mention he's now taller (and buffer, but that didn't take much) than I am? My garage sale pile is growing:I had to take a picture of my kitchen, because it has NEVER been this free of debris in six years living here.
The reason it's so clean is that we are having some painting done. We just didn't have enough stress in our lives, I guess. We are crazy, I know.
Here's where some of the debris is. The rest is piled up in the middle of all the kids' bedrooms.Did I mention I love my life?
I would be tempted to quit, but I keep telling myself that I will get to look at something like this out my back window soon:
Must. Keep. Going.
