So Busy

I have been so busy that I have barely been able to blog.

I decided to completely rearrange the house. I have given the older 2 girls their own bedrooms and made the playroom the bedroom for Nick and Lexie to share. That involved a lot of moving furniture and clothes. In the past 2 days, I have:

1. Moved my treadmill to my bedroom (which involved pulling it sideways down the hall and removing my bedroom door)
2. Moved a dresser and 2 beds downstairs.
3. Put together a full sized bookshelf (Making mistakes which I had to redo along the way).
4. Rearranged the living room.
5. Went grocery shopping at the commissary.
6. Went shopping at Walmart.
8. Went to the furniture store for the bookshelves.
9. Tried to keep my sanity while Ellie is spending the night at a friend's house. She is the one who watches Nick when I need a minute or two to do something. Kate was watching him while I was putting together the bookshelves. He took a butter knife to the BRAND NEW flat screen TV. It has been VERY hard not to loose my temper too much.

Tonight or tomorrow, I will be rearranging the closets and cleaning up my bedroom (which is pretty crowded now with the addition of the full-size treadmill.). Then, hopefully I will be done and we can all enjoy our new bedrooms :)

I'm also going to make our monthly trip to Sam's Club tomorrow. We got our paycheck and tax return in one day, so it has been nice to have some extra money!! Most of it is going to bills. I'm paying off our Expedition - it will be so nice to not have a car payment anymore!!

Wow! You've done a lot these last couple days.

We paid off our vehicles a couple years felt so GOOD! Now Dh is ready to trade in our Expedition for a mini van. I'm not sure I want another car payment.

How has your weather been? Dh leaves for Alaska in 2 1/2 weeks.

It has been snowing the past couple of days - not heavily though. We've probably gotten about 5 inches total. It is back down below zero also, but it hasn't been too bad.
How is your DH getting up here? Is he flying? We took the ferry, which was quite the adventure :) Are you staying back and waiting for housing?
