We've moved!

For the next two years (Summer 2014-Summer 2015) I'll be blogging our family's adventures in China at www.chinesemileposts.wordpress.com

Busy Busy

We are busy around here.
  • We're on a wild job hunt for Jed now that his semester is over and he needs employment for the duration of our stay here in Virginia.
  • Our friends, half of whom belong here, are coming to stay with us when they come out for a wedding that involves hiking. For me, this involves a deep cleaning of our house. Having book club or a meeting at my place is one thing, but people using your bathtub... that requires a lot of the kind of cleaning I don't typically bother with. Sad and horrible, but true.
  • Sewing a sleeping bag for Princess Sparkley's knock-off American Girl doll (who now sports dreadlocks) so PS is cool with giving up her room for our friends and "camping" on her brothers' floor.
  • I have three baby blankets to make... all for girls.
  • I'm going to try to go to coupon group (some ladies from church that I plan to suck knowledge from) this week so I can start being a better deal getter.
  • I need to start the kids on summer school stuff before they get the idea the school is over and done with forever. We need to work on math (PS and Buddy), handwriting (PS and Buddy), spelling (PS), sight words (Buddy) and reading (Buddy).

Plus the ongoing to do list that never changes:
  • laundry to either wash or fold and put away
  • sewing Buddy's new comfort blanket
  • picking up messes, vacuuming, loading and unloading the dishwasher

I feel like everyone I know is having girls. It makes me feel a little bit unspecial, however I guess there are only 2 choices (barring the hermaphrodite prospect of course).

Oh, I'm so sorry that you feel like you have to scrub your bathtub! If it makes you feel any better, I scrubbed our master bedroom bathtub for the first time in a year and a half last week, so obviously we don't have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness.

That is some crazy busy life you are "enjoying" right now. Good luck with everything!!! Remember: just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

ps. And I'm so sorry, but I can't help it...I'm the Ward Employment Specialist here in our Metropolis ward, and I'd be happy to forward some great hints for resumes and achievement statements, etc, if you'd think they'd be helpful/if you want. Also, ldsjobs.org is a great resource. I'll stop now.

Again, good luck! :)

I made a doll sleeping bag for Eliza for her birthday. It turned out fine, I just used two pieces of fleece. No zipper or anything.
