Good Thing I Feed Off Stress...

...cause I surely won't go hungry ANY TIME SOON.

I must wax poetic:

Plans, they are a-changin'
I've learned not to use ink
When writing on my calendar
I'm almost at the brink

Of losing all my marbles
As I contemplate
All the balls we're juggling
It just must be my fate

To live a life that's crazy
I don't know what to say
I can certainly assure you
I don't plan it this way

It's not enough to parent
A newborn and such
Then add to that moving
It seems like too much

But God has a reason
For timing it so
I'll rely on His guidance
As I rush to and fro!


After our recent house hunting trip to Nashville, hubs and I have reached a (somewhat scary) concensus: the boys and I will be moving up to join him the weekend of March 14! Yes, I know that is 3 weeks away. THREE weeks. But, there is a great school there where we've decided to enroll the D-man and get him accustomed to going for a full day. There is also a fenced-in back yard with a great play set and, of course, DADDY. None of us were too thrilled with the prospect of being without each other for such a long period of time; therefore, we're at peace with our decision.

Away to preparing for the movers I go!

I couldn't get into TOO comfortable a routine. Why that would be unheard of! It would practically be.....oh, you know...... NORMAL.

We can't have that now, can we?

Got your freak on now, dontcha!?! This IS Katie normal and you will no doubt handle it all and add some Martha Stewart touches to the whole process... and on the 15th you will collapse, but hey it will all be done.

But I don't WANT this to be Katie normal! :-)

If it's any consolation, I've moved in similar circumstances. (We're up to 9 moves in our 15 years of marriage, and one was two weeks from the time we found out we were going.) And if there's anything I've learned, it's this -- it's ALWAYS better to move quicker (even if its chaotic) so you can stay together as a family. You're making the right decision.
