This, That, and Another Thing

It's a good night.  I'm watching Olympic gymnastics, the boys are asleep (I think), Evan is out on a walk, and I just ate an ice cream sandwich.  No better moment than the present to blog!

I do still need to go through the photos of the three weeks of Project Life layouts I assembled the other night and try to throw together a post for tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I'm going to pull it off.  I'm already feeling slightly guilty that I didn't go out for a run tonight, but I'm rationalizing it with the fact that I ran my personal best for distance last night of just over 4 miles.

Know what's funny?  I'm at the point now in my weight loss journey that I'm running not so much to keep losing weight, but to maintain my dessert habit.  :)

Oh goodness.  I really need to update you all on my weight.  That's a post on its own.  Patience, young Jedi.

Let's talk about Thomas.  He just turned 11 months old and this child is teething.  And by teething I mean he is TEETHING.  My little overachiever is cutting a bare minimum of FIVE TEETH right now.  Holy Hannah.  I love that little booger, but this is making for a rough go of things.  He struggles to sleep, struggles to eat, and spends a good deal of his day crying and wanting me to hold him all. day. long. 

Thankfully, he's pretty adorable so I'm able to overlook all that other stuff.  Mostly.  :)

In other news, I have been stressed out.  As you know, we've been in the trenches of selling our house, buying our new house, inspections, appraisals, spending oodles of money, and yes.....still showings.  It's been a whirlwind that just keeps coming!  In the midst of all this, I found myself feeling super duper tired.  And moody.  Irritable.  Short tempered.  And hungry.  Seriously, there were several days there where I just wanted to eat and eat and eat....

Uh oh.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

In a strange twist of events, I found myself setting the timer for 3 minutes and saying a little prayer that.....this wouldn't be positive.

I ran into the living room, waved that stick around, and proudly announced, "Turns out I'm just hungry and stressed!  Woohooo!!!"

So here we are, 3 weeks away from the closing date on both houses.  I have a few days less than that to empty this house of its current contents and scrub it clean of all the marks we have left on it.  I've started slow considering that we have still been holding showings even after accepting an offer....and then another offer.  Yup, we're actually under contract with TWO buyers.  That's a whole blog post too, folks.  I really should write this stuff down.

Anyway, I've started doing some purging and organizing to try to slim down the volume of our stuff and put a dent in the packing.  So far, this is really the highlight of my efforts:

Yup, that's pretty much it.  I have a lot to do. 

On that note, I suppose I should probably get to it, huh?  Until next time.....
