and we're off

Justin and I cleaned a lot today. Still have one room left to tackle. Pictures were taken and things are good to go. Papers were signed and the house is definitely on the market. I think I am actually having a hard time with this. I don't like to be judged. When people are coming in to look at our house, they will essentially be making tons of little judgments about us. They will judge our furniture, our upkeep, our cleanliness, our pictures, our decorating, not to mention our HOME! Luckily for me, I don't really think of this as our home. It is a house. It is a building in which we live. I don't take it personally that they don't want to live here. I don't want to live here, which is why I am moving. Though I do need to say that I am enjoying it a lot more with a bunch of our stuff in the garage.

I am now feeling really bad about Ava's birthday. We are having her family party tomorrow. Aside from our house being spotless, we aren't at all ready. Ava wanted to make a cake and I am thinking we aren't going to have very much time to do it so I am hoping that when we stop at the store for pop and snacks and stuff I can sell her on picking out a nice over priced store cake with a cool cartoon thingy on it. Her actual birthday is Wednesday and we are making cupcakes and stuff to bring the park for our play group so she won't miss her whole plan of making cake stuff. Who knows, maybe I will just go ahead and let her make the cake tomorrow. She can decorate it when people are over right?

  1. You can get away with a lot for a three-year old's birthday.

    When Benjamin got up and asked Paul (they were camping) "is it my birthday today?" he told him, "after your nap."

    Hilarious!! And his favorite gift? A $1.79 orange squishy ball from Walgreens....
