I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack....
sort of.
:)
things are SO chaotic here....
boxes EVERYWHERE...

here are some things that make me sort of want to puke...
-the boys started school today....public school....
Coley of course wore his mohawk up....which of course makes me, the girl that would have preferred to blend in w/ the linoleum at that age a bit nervous for him....so hopefully things will go wonderfully and they will have nothing but good things to report tonight...
-i still have no email...
-we still have yet to sell our house.....
-the before mentioned boxes have to fit in closets the size of my pinky toenail...
what is it w/ older homes and closet space i ask you??? small....
-i'm going out to dinner w/ my husband's boss tonight (yeah, that's a good one....perhaps that should be closer to the TOP of the list of pukage)
-the shitters full was a theme the first few days upon move-in...as the toilets didn't work....
i made the boys pee outside....classy, yes, i know. Jared went out at night one night, and didn't realize the lights are motion sensitive...so he's peeing away, and the lights come on... ;)
(the toilets work now....the city worked until 1am the other night fixing them....lovely.)

and some things that are making me smile....
-my boys love the yard....there is a swing set, and trees for climbing....and a basketball hoop.
-I love the neighborhood
-i found my coffee pot

Gabby came saturday, and i got a chance to see all the vegas pics....got some goodies....and had a chance to hang out... that was awesome....

and most importantly....
OLD BABY IS FOUND!!!!!

That my friends was the most stressful few days....
but thanks to Gabby's blog, and your positive thoughts.....old baby is now safe and sound.
Actually old baby is a cape right now, jack is standing here talking to me....
i'm doing an old baby page at some point, but let me tell you...
i felt like the worst mommy EVER letting that blanket out of sight....
just long enough for the movers to shove it in a box.
it was HORRIBLE.
(*btw. old baby is "old" baby because it was just baby, until i decided to buy a new baby to replace the ratty baby....jack in his two year old voice at the time informed me, that he "DID NOT YIKE DAT NEW BABY!" he only liked his "OLD baby!"
and that is how old baby got it's name) the end. I've missed you all.....hopefully i'll be back in full force SOON. xe

Kirsten said...

What a RELIEF that old baby was found -- I LOVE that story -- don't you wish you could record all those little things the kiddos say? Then when you're having a bad day (or when they're in school/away/whatever) you could just replay it?

That would be great.

Christy said...

YAY! *E* is back!!! You've been greatly missed girlie! Moving SUCKS! I do not envy you at all! Hope things start settling down and you get back into the swing of thigs QUICK!
So glad you guys found 'old baby'... loved hearing how the name came about. Jack is such a cutie-patootie! :)
Hugs!

Jessica F said...

aww I love when you have pictures of your boys! Any pictures actually.

I'm so happy to hear that you are moved in and getting adjusted. I HATE being around clutter and boxes... such a bad mover, so I know how you feel!

Too happy that Jacks old baby has been found!!! xo

April said...

Erin said...

YAY old baby is safe and sound!
that made my heart hurt for little jack, as i know the attachment to woobees!
shitters full...
hee hee hee hee heee
i can just picture you standing outside in a wife beater shirt w/ a cap on emptying out the crap (sooooo cousin eddie!).
love that, thanks for totally making me giggle erika!
i made my boys pee outside yesterday cuz i had just moped the floor and it was still wet.
don't all good mommy's do that?
lol...

Darcy said...

We've missed you so much, Erika!!!! So glad to have you back! And SO glad that old baby has been rescued. We all were SO worried. You get the mother of the year award again.. it had been taken away from you for a bit. =) Jk.. MISSED YOU!!!

Colleen said...

moving sucks...doesn't it? you are cracking me up with "the shitters full!" seriously...just spit coffee out my nose.

Sarah said...

Oh I'm chuckling away happily here! Jack is delightful!!!!

I actually repeated Old Baby story to DH right now. It made him happy too.

Go Coley! Isn't it strange when our children aren't like us, and all our fears don't translate? It's a mercy I suppose, but it does make one ponder....

Jamie said...
