Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and not been able to go back to sleep because your mind is racing? Well, I have for the past week and fear I will continue to do so until we are settled in Georgia. Ali is kind enough to assist me in this, seeing that she is the culprit who wakes me up because she is hungry!! (Love ya littlest!)
We are on our 2 week countdown to Georgia (hence the mind racing). Everything is falling into place which is great.
FIRST and foremost...WE SOLD OUR CONDO!!! This is the biggest blessing of all. Last Monday while we were in St. George, we had TWO offers come in. We of course gave each party a chance to present their best offer and we went with the winner! We are so blessed. The appraisal came through just above our offer and everything checked out for the home inspection. We are set to close on the 29th of July - which honestly couldn't have worked out any better.
SECOND - Shawn passed his Master's Exam!!!! Way to go Shawn!! That is one less stress off the shoulders. He is still down to BYU for 10-12 hours a day working on his thesis, but he will get it done before school starts in Georgia! HA! It is great.
THIRD - Andie has given me TWO surprises in the bath tub in one week. YEP - twice, she has started to complain while in the bath, I turn to look and oops......POOP!! It is the grossest experience I have ever had. It is not bad until you drain the water so you can scoop it up with a paper towel. Once the water is drained - IT STINKS!! Then you have to scrub and disinfect everything before you can continue the bath - yep, that puts a damper on your schedule.
FOURTH - My dear little Ali - who by the way is over 26 inches tall now!! I have a strong opinion that her and Andie conspire during the night of their plans to cry at the same time during the day, refuse to take naps and demand 110% attention. Maybe it is the fact that I am trying to pack and actually get things done, but it seems like she has needed more tender love and care in the last week than ever. And of course, being a great mom - the packing has been delayed and the baby has been happy!!
All in all, I think it is safe to say that life is GREAT. We are excited to move and look forward to the on-going adventures of life.
