typical day:
(photos taken over 2days, because someone kept forgetting the camera)

the littles sneak out of very dark room with me around 8am
we leave Jared there, he prefers to sleep

we go down to the lobby for breakfast
coffee for me...

then we go back up to the room,
J stays asleep,
the littles watch cartoons...

I play on the computeraround 10:30 or 11 Colten and Jack go wake up Jared,
and they play some playstation...yesterday I decided to go to Target, because the walls were closing in on me.
I love my truck (in case I haven't mentioned that lately)need to clean her out though...
floor options for the new place, now I just need someone to come install the new floors...3 of the like 6 bracelets I had on...
loving bracelets this summerTarget makes me happy.
Starbucks, nailpolish, Zac Brown Band cd, lipgloss, a baseball for the Jack, and some pop for the boys...because really, when you're stuck in a tiny hotel room it's a good idea to keep boys hyped up on sugar and caffeine.
we eat lunch in the room...
and then we swimJared works out while we swim...
he also loses his key every day, so he usually shows up to get mine so he can get into the workout room.
cute, eh?yesterday I read, today I swam...

sometimes if I get lucky J comes down to the pool when he's done running,
and we watches the boys while I go lay out for a bit.

my favorite part of the cement where I sit outside:funny sidenote: the old pool guy yelled at Jared the other day because he was watching the boys in the pool when I ran up to switch the laundry. He told Jared he wasn't old enough to watch them. We laughed about this later, because the deepest end of the pool is 5ft. Jared is 6'3"...yeah...

After we swim it's back up to the room,
or reading...
or texting your girlfriend...whatever Astrid, Bob and Sharkbait are all here and accounted for...Living out of suitcases
Joy oh joy...Monday - Thursday...5pm is dinner in the lobby
Sometimes it's good, sometimes...ooooh not so good.
Tonight was yummmy,
well, please note Jared's plate...
mac-n-cheese, and cookies.So we opted for a little after dinner nachos and walk ...Monday - Thursday also means cookies at the front desk.
The boys put a hurtin on their cookie supply...and the popcornbig wheel anyone?
little shining-esque, eh?
yeah, I think so too...
and that's about our show.
Told you...riveting.

just letting you know nothing has changed here
still living in the hotel
still not updating the blog
taking some photos tomorrow of a typical day here
which should be riveting for all
yeah, I said riveting
yeah, I'm totally lying...
but you'll at least get a blog update,
which counts for something,

things that may or may not happen when you find yourself living in a hotel:
you might take an absurd amount of photos of yourself with your new webcam
you might do the same with your camera
you might also take video with that webcam
video of nothing
trust me when I say
you also might find all kinds of things to "like" on facebook
pretty much anything and
everything the teenagers you're "friends" with on facebook like
this may, or may not be cool
{it's not}
but it amuses you
so you just keep liking things
nonsense happening up in here
but clearly living in a hotel
does not
mean you might want to update your blog
ps. because I'm a horrible blogger as of late
I have yet to announce the birth of my newest niece
Miss Clara Jane
photo tomorrow...
she is just delicious
pps. tried to post a video
but blogger said no way
maybe later

prepare for random...

so that's the yard that makes me want to buy the house it's attached to.
and huge.
Jack says it's not nearly as big as his friend Devon's yard.
which is true...
but I still think it's pretty awesome.
problem is, it's in Hudson.
which is not Solon.
which means 3 out of 5 of us would be less happy.
and frankly
I am trying hard to make everyone happy.
(for the record am failing miserably)

things I have been reminded of lately:
there is a reason I don't get along with most women,
hotel rooms are small...even the "big" ones,
swimming is good for your mind,
less good for your knee
although I feel like I am lately,
I'm really glad I'm not literally treading water, my knee hated that.
I have a desire to learn things...
haven't been this excited in forever.
(not the best timing, but many ideas for the future)
I want to paint.
I love my new laptop.
I hate having to pay to do laundry.
I miss my kitchen.
I miss. a lot.

we haven't found a house.
and we've pretty much seen all there is right now.
we're doing what any normal person would do...
we're heading to the lake for a little stress relief.
then we'll regroup and try to figure this out.
the good news is...
Colin got me this little reader-thing
so now I can post photos.
and lake photos = the best.

I see the best of me inside your eyes...

oh...and the webcam takes photos...
we have clearly lost our minds...
because this is way more exciting than it should be.
we're off to see more houses.
then we're finding a soccer field because these children need to run.

we made it to ohio.
we are living in a hotel.
the little boys are enjoying the suite life of jack and coley.
jared is doing ok.
i am doing...
and we are trying to figure out this house thing.
it's still kind of crazy. i'm not going to lie...

side note.
totally packed the cord to connect my camera to the computer away in storage.
technically the movers did...
but i'm a dork, and forgot to leave it out...
no photos.
which makes for unhappy blog posts.

happy 4th of july.
enjoy the fireworks.
the 4th = my favorite.
