We are moving.....

Oh what a joyous couple of weeks it has been (insert sarcasm). But truly, it has been amazing of the love that has been shown us by our church family.

The Friday after Dwyane's surgery I wound up having to take him back into the DR because he was in so much pain. They took out his outer stitches and prescribed him an anti-inflammatory. He still can't do much - they cut some muscle where his hernia surgery was so that is why he is taking so long to recover. Those of you who have had C-Sections probably don't feel too bad for him! He is mending though.

He has had a couple of good interviews and goes back for a final interview with one of the places on Wednesday so hopefully something will pan out - they have great family health insurance so that is a huge bonus since it seems like my young vibrant bod is starting to fall apart. Haha

Oh yes, the title of the post. We are moving. We found a house that is perfect for our family and is available to buy but on our time table - say in a year or two but we are hoping before then. It has 4 bedrooms, living room, family room, 2 bathrooms (the kids bathroom has a claw foot tub) and a wood burning fireplace. Avery is enjoying the two sliding glass doors and is back to the time we were at my parents house in Minnesota so he is back to barking. My sweet quiet dog was just a barking last night and upon further investigation he really wanted to go play with the bunny in the back yard.

We are cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning tonight and this weekend so if anyone wants to come and help :::::::::hint hint::::::::: you are more than free too :) Unfortunately we need to fork out the dough and hire some movers to move the furniture as Dwyane won't be in any shape for several weeks yet to do anything and my back is already a mess so it is movers we do.

Other than that life is so busy right now. Allison is involved in the Best of Show Choir Competition at one of the high schools next weekend and this weekend is practice all day on Saturday for her. Oh yeah.. the moving date.... Wednesday on Kristofer's birthday (I can't believe my baby will be 12!!) The kids will be gone that night to the Firehouse Underground Coffee House for Youth Group so we are celebrating on Tuesday. No party yet though until we are settled into the new house and then he is planning on seeing how many pre teen boys he can pack into the family room.

BTW - Jean - you tell Bear that unfortunately the new house has stairs - lots of stairs, however since it is a multi level the stairs aren't steep and there are three levels so he gets a break in between all of them.

Life is pretty good although quite stressing at the moment. I will be thrilled when Dwyane is back at work and getting a regular paycheck again and all the bills are caught up again.

One more thing... we may be without Internet, phone, and cable (the kids are not looking forward to this one but I think it will be good for them) for possibly a few weeks. We need to call and set up the transfer and they usually are a couple of weeks out. I will be able to check email while at work so it will be limited to once a day maybe depending on how much the phones are ringing off the hooks cuz you know.. those procrastinators need their Caps and Gowns for Graduation!
