Twiddling My Thumbs

For those of you wondering where I have been, wonder no more. I have been living la vida loca.
  • We are moving out of Norwalk tomorrow! Ack! We feel really fortunate to have sold our home in this crazy real estate market and truly believe that the new owners see our house as a special place.
But wait, there is more!
  • We are moving in with the Hoos' parents! It is only temporary - for the month of July until we close on our new home. Meaning:
  • We are packing to put our stuff in storage! Ack! Way more stressful than just packing to move. Everything must be in a box or thrown out. No just carrying a box of perishables and driving over hanging clothes.
But wait, there is more!
  • We are going on vacation! Leaving Monday for parts north where we hope to relax, enjoy the beautiful beaches, and eat lots of ice cream. Plus, it will help break up the 4 weeks living without my own home.
Lest you think I am done:
  • My company just announced a merger. Ack! I am the only marketing/communications person, meaning I was really in the thick of things for planning and now find myself in integration-land.
But back to the move:
  • We bought a new house! The new house is awesome. There are a whole lot of things about it that make it perfect for our family (e.g., you know those canoes and kayaks taking up space in my basement? They will now be located on the built in kayak rack in the backyard - which is 15 feet from a body of water!).
  • AK is switching day care! Well, after I spend the summer driving the girls to their existing day care on my way to work (I really am dreading this change to our routine - the girls are used to leaving the house at 8:30am, now we have to try to leave before 8).
  • LP is graduating preschool and going to KINDERGARTEN! Ack! When did I get so old?

I admire your fortitude - so much change in such a little person! Sorry, couldn't resist the short joke. Enjoy your vacation and many wishes for happy times in the new home.

I think you need more on your plate:).

Are you headed to Fairfield? I think I missed that part.

And with a title like that I thought you were going to say that you weren't doing much! :)
