No Rest For The Weary

I think I underestimated just how insane it is to pack up a whole house with three kids - 4 and under. It isn't even 11 yet and I've made breakfast, made coffee, packed many boxes, refereed several fights, distracted kids while I pack their books, reheated my coffee in the microwave, had a come to Jesus with the storage unit people, went through my pantries, fed the baby, realized I forgot my coffee again and tried to reheat it one more time, changed diapers, and talked on the phone more than I have in a year - all by myself.

I thought I'd be able to still write a few posts here and there, but we have just over a week to get completely moved and I am throwing all of my attention to that. My husband works a really weird schedule and is only off Sunday and then not again until Thursday. When he's off, we'll have help from family. That means I have to get most of it packed up by myself so we can use our laborers to move it all. We also have to get the trampoline and playset taken down enough to move.

I may or may not have time to write a few posts that I have planned in the next week, but I'm definitely not killing myself trying to get it done. Please don't leave, I promise to be back in about a week and a half if nothing else! If you need anything, please email me at twoofakind868@aol.com - I'll be checking my iPad periodically.

Ya'll have a great weekend and send me good vibes to get this house packed up and moved without losing my mind!

Good luck! We're military so I feel your pain-last year I moved while my husband was in Iraq, I was 5 months pregnant, and had a 4 and 2 year old! So take a deep breath and we'll all be here when you get back! Good luck!

Good luck! With my three at home, I don't get a lot of time, either..I can't imagine trying to pack to move, too (I did pack for 10 days away...but not quite the same!)

Your readers can wait. Take care of you, those little kiddos and your stuff. We'll still be here.

Good luck! You are a brave mama. But we always manage to find a way to get it all done, don't we. Last time we moved I had a 4 1/2 year old and a 1 month old - no fun. We might be moving again in a few months, with a 6 year old, 2 year old and 7 months pregnant. Oy. Anyway, everyone will be waiting and don't stress out about this part of it if you can. I hope it all goes smoothly!

Good luck on the move as I did it last month and I only had a 4 1/2 year old but still it was no fun and like you my husband works weird hours so I had to do most of it and the more I did the more my son undid trying to help. I am Praying for you and the kids and it the blog will wait you focus on you all right now. We will be here. As my readers where for me and I was gone over a month.

Good luck! I moved with a 1 year old while pregnant and then we moved with a 2.5 and 1 year old - not fun but we did it and honestly I am never moving again!
