The Forever Move


My poor neglected blog! So much has happened in the last month with us moving back to New Hampshire. I made a scrapbook page about it but haven't had a chance to update my blog about our adventures. It started with me flying the kids back to NH so that they could stay with my parents and I could go to the baby shower for my new nephew Aryn (who is here now, btw!) Then I flew back to CA and got the best surprise! I got tickets to a live show of So You Think You Can Dance. Tanisha and I went in to Hollywood and it was just awesome! What wasn't awesome was when the moving company came a day early and charged us an extra $5000! All told we must have spent at least 10,000 on this darn move. If I had known it would cost so much I would have just got rid of more and bought a bunch of new stuff when we got here. Now it is a month later and the moving truck is still not here. We are all living out of suitcases and what I could fit in my Rav4. Andy and I drove across the country and got to make some fun stops on the way like the Grand Canyon and to see our friends Christ and Nicole and their two lovely daughters. We also got to see the Kay family for one last visit at the Grand Canyon. That was pretty cool! We got back to NH on a Tuesday and Andy had to fly back to CA on Saturday to tie up some lose ends at work and sell his car. My first week as as SAHM was pretty trying but I think we are finally falling into a routine now that he is back. The kids will also start going to school two days a week next week just to have some socialization and academics.
