I have to brag on my boys. They did a wonderful job in helping me clean today. Some girls some day will be lucky to have them. We got more boxes today so I packed everything but the bare essentials in my kitchen. The mound of boxes is getting very high. No lookers at the house today but hopefully soon. I think it will really help once we get our stuff out. Thanks so much for all your prayers.

Rest and then back to the real world!

We had a very nice Memorial Day weekend. We went over to dad and Ruth's. We played a game of Settler's of Catan. Ruth won:) Then we went to our soon to be house so John and Nathan could climb the trees there. John was in heaven. He loves to get out his climbing gear. The trees are very tall in our back yard. I love the pictures that Ruth took. Nathan is a little monkey boy. He climbs bare footed so that he can grip the tree better. It is a wonderful view from our back yard. You can sit and watch the planes come in. We spent today grocery shopping and getting boxes. I packed about 30 boxes so far. I can't believe how much junk we own. Please continue to pray for the sale of our house. Tomorrow and Friday I clean houses. The boys are coming with me tomorrow to help.

Keeping very busy

I am totally exhausted. The boys,Nathan, and I worked on cleaning the new house we are buying. It was so nice of the old owners to let us come in before closing to clean it. I have been sorting through stuff at our house too. It is very hard to sort through stuff and not make a mess in case prospective buyers come by. Poor John has a fever of 101 but he still has to work. Please pray for him because he is miserable. The boys are staying at grandpa and grandma's house tonight. Tomorrow I will go back to the new house and work on it till about noon. Then I need to come home and take a little break. Tomorrow night I have a cleaning job. Someone came through my house to look to buy it. When they were here they left a note saying they would like me to clean their house. So I called the lady she was very nice. Usually I don't clean at night it is family time. Right now we can use all the extra money we can get. Pray that all goes well with this job also pray that our house will sell.

Happy Mother's Day

The boys made me breakfast in bed on Sunday. I found this rug online that I fell in love with. You can't tell from the picture but the rug is more orange than red. John bought it for me for Mother's Day. I am so blessed with such a wonderful family! For my birthday and anniversary in June I am getting a new house. We had to jump on the house we were interested in buying before it was foreclosed on. So please pray that we will be able to sell our home quickly. I have not been posting lately because I have been so overwhelmed. I will post more soon.

The rug search goes on!

I took the rug back. It is to small and not right. I have looked in about ten stores and online. You would think I could find something. It is very hard to find a 5x8 rug.
Alison tagged me with this.
Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1. I have to have my bed made before I climb in it. John thinks I am crazy if I didn't get a chance to make it in the morning and I make it right before I get in it at night. It's a comfort thing.
2. I love to hear people tell stories about their life over and over again (some stories never get old). It make me feel like I am part of their family.
3. I love traditions! At Christmas time my family always puts out a big spread of snack foods instead of a dinner. It is nice because my mom could spend time with us instead of cooking all day.
4.I have probably watched the movie Stepmom with Julia Roberts twenty times or more.
5. I quote Friends lines all the time.
6. I love to ballroom dance with John at home not so much in public. I also like to dance when I am happy.
7. I know all the words to the country song I am an Indian Outlaw. Chris and I like to sing it in the car. I know I am weird.
So sad most people I know have already been tagged. So some of these may be repeats sorry.
I want to tag:

Tricia what do you think?

Today Tricia and I watched Music and Lyrics and Because I said So. Music and Lyrics was cute and predictable but enjoyable. Because I said So was a complete waste of time. Take my advice don't bother watching it. I kept waiting for the good part. Tricia gave up on it and proceeded to clean her house. You know it's bad when you would rather clean than sit and watch the movie. We also went shopping at Marshall's where I found this funky rug. What do you think? Be honest because I am not sure about it. We ate lunch at Hot Dog Heaven. That is becoming our tradition. I love eating there! I had a lot of fun today!
