I hate change. I really, really do. However, after LOTS of prayer I have decided to stop fighting. We are going to rent our house and move to my grandparents' house. There really are a lot of great things about moving and I am focusing on them. For starters, it is 2 minutes from the school, as opposed to my 35 minute drive now. Not to mention the gas we will be saving in my not so economy beast of a vehicle. We will be close to my parents which will be nice, especially when my dad has his surgery (they are having to reschedule because of the snow/ ice). We will have more bedrooms and the boys will have a larger playroom, though our bedroom, bathroom and closet will be MUCH smaller. We will have an AWESOME backyard with a great back porch and super nice neighbors that I have known since I was a little girl. Our garage will be bigger and it has a large storage closet in the garage, not to mention the storage building in the back yard- no more sharing the garage with the riding lawnmower! The downside is there are 2 staircases and it makes me SUPER nervous! The first thing we are going to do is put up baby gates and hopefully that will make me feel MUCH better. Also the house needs lots of updating- I hate wallpaper and it is in several rooms and all of the bathrooms, but we did lots of updates to our house now, so I know it will just take time.
I am actually getting kind of excited when I'm not overwhelmed with thinking about packing and wondering how I am going to get it all done with my two little munchkins being under my feet all the time. But I know that it will all work out and hopefully once we are all settled in (probably mid- late Feb.) I will finally be able to relax...Well maybe a little! Parker trying to "help" me pack! Braden is hiding under the red blanket in the backround.
