moving. is. chaos.


i love this picture.




we are done.  

well, out of the moldy house, anyway.
now we are getting the new place together.
it has been a long and stressful week and a half, 
and there are so many people that stepped in to help us.

it makes me want to cry just thinking about it,
how grateful i feel.

because i know how sore and tired i am, 
with all that went on.  i pushed myself.
i did try to take it easy, 
and took multiple breaks
and moments to sit down
or just literally crash on a bed.
but i also know how many boxes i didn't lift and carry,
or even pack and unpack.
and how many meals i didn't have to cook,
and how many loads of mold-infested laundry that i didn't wash,
and how many cupboards i didn't fill,
and how many beds/shelves/dressers i didn't put back together.

and i know those who did do those things so that i didn't have to.

so an enormous thank you
to all those involved in our emergency move.

from the bottom of my heart, and the top of my big belly.

I know I haven't been the best commenter lately but I have really been thinking about you during all this mold problem. I am so sorry. You are wonder woman. I hope this asthma issue clears itself up and baby girl will be healthy as a ham! P.s. love this photo of your adorable leah. It makes me want to go to Disneyland where problems don't exist :) xoxo

Mold sucks. Moving sucks. Asthma sucks. Sick kids suck. I'm praying for a healthy summer for you all, a happy unpacking and some great weather for you to go outside and clear out your lungs. Perhaps, it is one of those environmental influenced asthma type deals and yours will completely disappear. Love you Lyns.

What the??? Moldy house? Emergency Move? What happened? Please fill me in on the entire story when you find the time. I'm so sorry you had to go through all that!

I am so glad you are out of there. Moving is the pits! It is so hard to be half way in and half way out of your living accommodations.

We will be doing that shortly. We put our home up for rent (because we can't make another months payment) and several of the interested families want to move in June 1st. Which means that I better get crackin! And I honestly have no idea where to start.

I don't know how you did all that amidst being pregnant. You are truly amazing! And amazingly cheerful!

Love that picture of Leah. Darling.
