Credit Card Fiasco

Ugh, I am so annoyed.  I never knew that moving would be such a hassle with our CREDIT CARD company.

When we first moved, I followed the standard protocol and changed our address online through my account.  After I clicked “update,” I noticed Continue Reading…

We Move Tomorrow!

I’ve been doing a great job of not dwelling on our upcoming move.  Somehow, I’ve managed not to daydream about what our apartment might look like (we haven’t seen it!).  Until now, that is.  We’re going to get our keys tomorrow and I cannot Continue Reading…

Mother’s Intuition

Last week, I had my first experience with mother’s intuition.  It makes me smile thinking about it.

We dropped C off with my parents the week of our move, so that he wouldn’t be getting into boxes and cleaning products as we prepared to leave our Continue Reading…

I’ll Become a Squatter Before I Ever Move Again

Last week, we moved from one Midwestern state to another.  We’re back in our home state now, which is awesome, but let me tell you – moving is a real bitch.

I’ve always gotten stressed out during moves.  Factor in mental illness (postpartum anxiety and postpartum depression) and it’s Continue Reading…

The Month of Moving Begins

I’m a little sad today.  Today is the last day we have as a family in C’s first home.  We’re dropping him off with my parents tomorrow, and he’ll be with them for a week while we pack up our things and move out of state.  I’m not too sad about Continue Reading…

Time to Clean Out the Cupboards!

Well, we move in six days.  SIX.  DAYS.  Yeah, I’m freaking out just a little.

We’re trying to use up all of the food in our cupboards, refrigerator and freezer so that we don’t need to worry about hauling it to another state.  I discovered Continue Reading…

Juggling, Juggling, Juggling…

Ever feel like you’re juggling with so many balls in the air that you’re just waiting for one of them to drop?

We’re moving out of state in just over two weeks.  In the meantime, we’re trying to fit in numerous doctor appointments, C’s one-year Continue Reading…

Mentally Checking Out

In less than a month, Hubster will graduate and shortly after that, his graduate assistantship will come to an end and we will need to move out of our campus apartment.  We don’t know exactly when we’re moving yet; mostly because we don’t know Continue Reading…

When Did Leaving Home Become a Hassle?!

Hubster, C and I are preparing to drive to our home state for the weekend.  He has an annual weekend with his high school buds.  C and I are going to drop him off and spend the weekend with my parents.  While Hubster smashes 5 days of work into 4 Continue Reading…

2×4

The larger the baby, and therefore I, get, the more I feel like there is a 2×4 stuck in my core that is impossible to bend over or around.  It makes me feel a little hapless sometimes, because I’d really like to be able to lean and bend over to Continue Reading…
