Settling In

Well folks we're all moved in to our new apartment. I have to say that we absolutely L.O.V.E. it!! Still haven't found my camera in the mess of things, but I will soon. I've gotten a lot unpacked already.
The kids are still adjusting, but rather quickly I might add. Myelle keeps telling me "I like our new apartment."

Tomorrow's the Day!

We'll be moving. Yay!! We're finishing up the packing today. (In fact I should be packing right now rather than blogging, but here I am.)
Thanks to Rachel H. for coming & helping me pack for so long yesterday! I wouldn't be this close to being ready without you.
Pics of our new apartment coming soon.

You Know You're a Band Geek...

When a great song comes on & instead of singing along with the words you sing the part you played in your marching band show. :D
Blaring trumpet solo to ensue. Wah wah wah wah.......

6 Days & Counting

Only six more days until we move. I'll be packing like crazy this week. We sign our lease on Wednesday & can start moving in. I'm going to move a few boxes before, but the big move is on Saturday. I want to thank in advance all the family & friends that are helping us move. You guys are the best!

Just as We Were Getting Caught Up

We got another medical bill. It seems like that happens every time. It's depressing. At first I was mad that Erick had to go into the ER & be admitted to the hospital. But after a bit I realized it was the best thing for him & it wasn't his fault. (Sorry Honey I can be so wraunchy sometimes...I know I'm working on it.)
Now I'm just stressed. And so I eat. More than should be humanly possible. When it hurts...I stop & sleep. Things will look better in the morning.
This too shall pass.
And I love my mom. She is the greatest. Today she came & picked up my kids at the drop of a hat so I could go to the hospital with Erick. And when I got home I found she had done my dishes, vacuumed & cleaned out my fridge. Thanks Mom!! (If I knew how to do the heart symbol I'd insert one here) You are the greatest!

I got the player off my blog. :) My internet must have been having issues when I tried before. Yippee!
One of my goals this year is to be a better housekeeper. I don't mind tidying up or vacuuming or even doing laundry. However, I absolutely hate doing dishes. Hooray for the dishwasher we are going to have in our new apartment! I now set a goal to unload the dishwasher as soon as it's done & load my dirty dishes right into it.
What's your least favorite chore?

I keep trying to remove my music player off my blog & it won't let me. Any tips, suggestions, how to's? Thanks in advance!

Back Up & Running

We have a fully functional keyboard & fully functional screen again! Hooray!!
As a quick update:
We are moving. Erick got a job as a Pharmacy Tech at Walgreen's in Blackfoot. We were going to try to stay in Idaho Falls because it wasn't that far of a commute (30-45min depending on the weather) & we love our ward. But we found much cheaper housing in Blackfoot. 7 days & counting until we sign the lease.
