If you have young children, you will understand that trying to give yourself a mani-pedi is not an easy task. I actually can paint them, it's the drying part that creates problems. After the kids went to bed, I decided to go crazy and paint both my toes and my hands. I purposefully stayed up later than normal to ensure they would be dry before going to sleep. In the morning, I wake up and my nails have been imprinted by the sheets- lovely. That, my friends, is one reason why trying to paint your own nails with young children is extremely difficult. Oh well...

I just got hired to teach the job I'm working! This year I have been working as a long term substitute in kindergarten. I have been trying for years to get a permanent job and it's finally happened! I'm so excited! This is such a releief( a bit anti- climatic) since I'm turning 30 soon and just now having my career start... But non the less, I'm thankful. Here are some pictures of my classroom that I don't have to take down for next year.

We moved the weekend of May 3rd and the house is still in shambles. I'll get one area all nice and clean and turn around to mayhem. Young children and working full time are my excuses. I have great plans of accomplishing so much when I get home from work but between playing with the kids, who I haven't seen in ten hours, making them dinner, and getting ready for bed, it's 9:30 and I want to collapse.
The pictures below give you a small sample of what I was feeling brave enough to even share with you. The "office" which is where we are throwing things we don't know what to do with yet. The stairs which collect what is suppose to go upstairs and I walk by 100 times before actually taking them. The dining room which is currenly a play space/room I keep ignoring...
16 days left if school!!! I'm hoping I can enjoy our new house at some point.

We moved into our new house. It still feels like someone is going to say, "just kidding! You have to move back to your condo." My husband left for a business trip Monday. Although this really,.. Sucks, we've been doing fine except there is clutter everywhere and I can't stop it.
I'm just so happy. I took the kids and Lola on a walk and then we played outside. This is what I have been waiting for and thinking about for so long! Being able to play outside and take walks. I even met two new neighbors:)

I wish I could bottle up the feeling I have over getting the keys to our new house. When the realtor put the key in our hand, it just made it seem so real. We stopped over the house to see how the paint swatches we picked looked in the rooms. I was just standing there so elated and just saying, "I can't believe this is our house!!"
We are still with my patents house until this weekend. We bought new locks for the doors and picked out paint. Our belongings have been delivered in the pod and the cleaning people are coming tomorrow. Moving costs some serious cash but when you work full time and have young children, it's worth it to have it done quickly.
I just wanted to move in and not have to clean someone else's goo. It's going to be a very busy, but fun and memorable weekend.
