Things to be grateful for

Life has been absolutely wonderful! The hubby has taken on a new role at work, and he is succeeding at it. I feel better about myself and have been working on taking better care of my body and mind. We have a few fun things coming up, like Field Day at munchkin 1's school, then her birthday this weekend. They're all getting sooo big! I decided to cut the baby blanket I was making for munchkin 1's teacher short and turn it in to a burp cloth to go along with the hat and socks. Time just got the best of me! Story of my life. LOL Anyway, I'm working on the border right now, so when it's finished I'll post pics here and on Ravelry. It's going to be so cute! This is my first time picking up stitches, so I hope it turns out okay.

Oh! We'll be moving to Colorado at the end of June. We decided to wait a couple weeks longer before making the move to cut down on the time that we'll be without a house up there. We're waiting for post housing to open up, so we'll see what happens! Hopefully we aren't living out of a hotel for months. That would be an adventure. Well, time to finish the blanket/burp cloth. Don't forget to thank a vet!

Today is just one of those pissy days. I had plans to do some shopping after the hubby got home from work, but that might not happen now because he had a craptastic day at work. It's not his fault, but I was kinda bitchy about it which makes me feel bad. The kids have been fighting with and fussing at each other all day. The stress of the upcoming move to Colorado is starting to weigh on me. I got a call today that said we might not get a house as soon as we had expected. Now it's back to looking for a house we can afford and hoping we find something very soon. There's still an entire house to pack, load, move, and unpack. I'm so looking forward to Colorado, but at this point I'm just over it. *sigh* Hopefully things will work out soon so I can stop stressing and focus on more important things. Blah. Don't forget to thank a vet!

Best Mother's Day EVER!

Yesterday was just a fantastic day. My hubby wished me a Happy Mother's Day first thing in the morning, then watched the girls so I could go out to dinner with friends last night. He took care of dinner for them on his own and made sure they were bathed and ready for bed before I got home. Then as we were lounging on the couch and talking, the doorbell rang. Standing at the door was a man holding these:

Aren't they gorgeous?! It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. Don't forget to thank a vet!
