The Balancing Act

I probably have 27 posts titled this, but there is no better way to say it.  My life is a constant battle of balancing what I need to be doing, want to be doing, should be doing...and for who...the kids, work, the house, friends or family, or heaven forbid, myself.  My mind is running a constant to-do list, which currently lies at about 1 trillion things long. 

Like every other mother out there, I need more hours in the day, more money, more energy, and more patience.  I need to find the right balance between all of the different hats I wear.  With all this said, I love my two kids  and husband more than anything, but I did find a great post by a different blogger who sums life with two kids up pretty well.  Take a peak...you'll relate I'm sure.


I have so much I want to update here on the blog, and I will get to it, it just may be a Christmas post when it's summer, but it will happen.  The kids are great, the house is great, life is good!

Making a house a home

Well, we moved! After we sold our house in three days we found a house we love, went through the negotiating process, inspection, appraisal, and finally closing. We actually closed on our old house and then our new house back to back. One week ago tonight was our first night sleeping in our new house. The first night was rough for the kids, Grant wasn't feeling the best and Jenna was worried about being upstairs and having us on the main floor. She slept with every light on. We are doing much better now. We're all getting used to the new house, new noises, new challenges (like all the stairs that Grant likes to go up and down and up and down) and the excitement. I just said to Erik a couple nights ago that the house is feeling more and more like ours and more comfortable. We are so excited to have this house be ours, make memories here and make it our home. We have pretty much unpacked all the boxes, but don't have one single thing on the wall yet. Lots to do to make it cozy and ours. Getting our new couch delivered would be nice too! Pictures will be coming soon! I am so thankful for all I have in my life! Most importantly, Erik and the kids, and our family and friends. We have jobs, a new house we LOVE, our health, happiness, and more.
