Now That's A Month!!!!

It is amazing how much can change in just 30 short days.  On Jan 18th, Scott was in his 30's and working in North Carolina. I was employed full-time, Sarah was 8.  We were planning to live in NC until the cows came home and the only scheduled trip of 2013 was a snow tubing trip in the Mountains.  Fast forward 30 short days.

Scott accepted his new job and started working two days later.  He started commuting to CA 100% one week after that.  Meanwhile, I gave notice at my job and even managed to work most of my remaining shifts; I finished up on February 10th, starting my new job as a full-time stay-at-home mom.  

Plus, Sarah's had her big 9 year-old birthday.  The family enjoyed a trip to Beech Mountain.  Scott had his giant 40th birthday complete with many festivities, including:  a weekend of golf and gambling in Biloxi: poker at the house; a family celebration; a Daddy-Daughter dance; a date night with me; and 600 black balloons in his office at work.  And, Mimi had a birthday this month, we are celebrating Nana's birthday next week, and there are now many trips on the agenda as we try to find a home and say good-bye to family and friends. 

In between, I have been trying to get this house ready to sell.  A feat that at times seems impossible large with three young kids running wild inside.  We absolutely, positively have to sell this house before we even think about buying house in CA.  That's because very little houses in the Bay Area have very big price tags. 

An avalanche is forming in our garage in preparation for the world's biggest moving sale on March 9-10.  Come on down.  I promise the stuff will be priced to sell!!!!

That is life in the stroller lane.
