Whirlwind times

I have been soooo busy the last couple of weeks. We found out that we have to go ahead and move to RI if we want to go with C. So, we are moving in March. That's just over a month away. Crazy! C and I have been doing some painting and trying to get the house in shape for renters (hopefully!). Not that we are painting for the renters, but because when I changed out some stuff from the previous owners, they didn't bother to take anything, i.e. towels rods, shelves, etc, down to paint behind it. So, now we have these ugly holes that need painting and we don't have the paint that they used. Nice. Not! I have been wanting to paint for the last 3 years that we have been here but C has not been on board with it until now.
So my little baby will be ONE YEAR OLD in just a few days. I can't believe it! She is still not walking on her own yet. I guess she knows she can get there faster by crawling. She honestly looks like she is running on her hands and knees sometimes! Its pretty funny to watch. And she wait until we turn our backs and then takes off, either for the stairs or the bathroom. She likes to go fishing in the bathroom. Thankfully there hasn't been anything for her to fish for!
T-man still has a love/hate relationship with school. He has a great time when he is there and enjoys showing off what he has learned, but he would much rather stay home and play. And he will tell you as much if you ask him! He was most upset when we told him that we were going to be moving soon. He is going to miss his best friend. I know he will adjust, but I still worry about him.
I have been so busy that I haven't even had time to take any pictures lately. How sad is that? I hope I don't forget to take pictures during the move. Chances are that I will forget since C will not be here. Oh well... we'll see. That's all for now...

Happy New Year!!

I can hardly believe that it is 2009! 2008 certainly seemed to fly by, didn't it? I guess that is what happens when you have a brand new little one. My big boy turns !6! tomorrow! He is getting so big. And learning more and more every day. I'll try to remember to do a birthday post tomorrow for him. My little one is almost one! That should not be allowed! She is such a sweetie too.
A new year and a new blog look. I may change it around some more, but I'm not sure yet. We'll see. I haven't come up with any resolutions for the new year. I did start a 365 photos blog to try and motivate myself to take more photos on a daily basis. We'll see how that goes. My first post was a close up of my new bedroom furniture. I'm still in awe at how beautiful it is. I have started thinking of my one little word for this year, but haven't decided on anything yet. I will give myself a couple of days to figure it out.
I finally got all of my Christmas decorations down. I still have to wash a couple of towels and dishes, but then I will have it all put away. Now to just vacuum and get the furniture moved back into place. When that is done, life will start getting back to the normal routine, at least until C leaves at the end of the month. T goes back to school next Tuesday. I will hopefully start going back to the gym every day. Well, at least 4 days a week since I will be keeping a friend's 2 kids on Fridays. That's about all that is going on right now. I'll have to post some of T's b-day party pics tomorrow.
