We took the kids to Six Flags White Water last weekend in Atlanta and it was whirlwind fun. I blinked and we were back home. I had forgotten that Drew tends to be afraid of rides and he chickened out at the last second on this one with Andy and Josiah. Madeline rode with them, she was all over that.
Liz and I took the kids later, same ride, and I grabbed his wrist and off we went before he even knew what was happening or could back out. He did great and LOVED it. I think it was a breakthrough moment; he realized he survived and it was big time fun. After that he went on all the slides and was completely fine. Way to face your fears, Drew!
And also – FUNNEL CAKE.
So now we’re home, back to preparing to move. I made some serious headway in the attic a couple of days ago and took a van-load to the drop off donation box. The weather has been GORGEOUS so the attic actually isn’t overbaked and too hot to be in – HUGE BLESSING. Still miles and miles to go in there.
Okay, a coupla things I’ve been meaning to share. My cousin Vangie loaned me this book, which I enjoyed so much: The Sisters: Saga of the Mitford Family. (History majors unite!) It’s a load of pages but kept me company for a good long while.
Next, Meredith blogged about her “miracle cream” a while back and I’m really thankful I decided to try it at this point in my life. I thought when I weaned Ethan I would feel great and that was SO the opposite. How I felt changed over the course of the month so I thought it most likely had something to do with the female cycle. This cream is seriously amazing. Love it, recommend it to every woman. Seriously. Read her full post here.
Okay, the above was written earlier this week. And then my laptop died. It’s currently getting a new hard drive at the mac store hospital. I’m using Andy’s and his settings are different and driving me crazy. Not loving being without my computer for several days straight. I’m also not gonna love the bill.
Our appraisal is tomorrow so one more frenzied cleaning run and it’s over. We’ve had repair men here all week and isn’t it funny how you get your house perfect and then leave it? Whatever, bring on the new. You know, in fifty million years when the new house is ready. ;)Filed under To Share | Comments (2)
