Head Above Water

I'm still here!

Been working steadily since coming home from Paradise.
I have been packing boxes, loading them on the van, and sending them off to the storage area in the new house. (Can't use the other rooms until Thursday) Occasionally, I have fed a child or changed a diaper, but mostly I have been just letting them fend for themselves, hoping it doesn't get all "Lord of the Flies" on me.

No, its not that bad. Michael's brother Mark is here, and is watching the kids while I run around and pack, and then he takes all the crap to the next house.

Yes, yes, I know you all (Cindy) want to see (Cindy) pictures of Hawaii (Cindy) and have been SO patient (not Cindy) but I am scared to even take my camera out of my bag! (Just kidding, Cindy!)

As any good Photoshop addict would understand (Cindy), if I were to even attempt to transfer the Hawaii photos from my camera onto my computer, I would be forced to just post one... oh, and color-balance that other one... and wouldn't these three make a nice set, and then all of a sudden the hubby is home asking how many boxes got packed today.

Ummm.... boxes?

So, they are staying safely in my camera until I am at least UNpacked in the next house enough to find a fork to eat with and a diaper to cover a clean bottom and my cushy pillow to sleep on.

So, the UNpacking might go a little slowly, but not being out of this house in time might get a little costly.

Until then, I leave you an un-shopped photo of Ethan LAST Easter (as my Easter photos are on the camera still, as well). I think it speaks well to how the packing is going, how fun moving is, and the agony of waiting for Hawaii pics (Cindy) and Easter pics of the kids (Mom!).

I understand!! I didn't really expect any posts this week but still crave them. That's just what a mother does. Sorry. :) Anyway, I hope the packing is going well. Wish I could be there to help out but glad Mark is there.

By the way, I love the picture of Ethan even if it is last year's. What happened, didn't the Easter Bunny bring him anything?

Ummm ... not just Cindy. Or Mom.

But I can be patient.

Love that pic of Ethan. That is exactly how I feel, buddy. Hope the packing is going smoothly.

By the way, you're not off the hook, you might want to check out my latest post....

I keep coming back to look at Ethan's picture every time I want to cry, to remind myself of what my self pity looks like to the outside world! I feel your pain, little guy.
