WTG on the bonus!!! Good luck with your packing! I hear you on the sadness of leaving the house behind. You'll be off to new memories, and your house will be a place of new memories for the new folks. Have a great day!!!

Sob...Amber...making me think about moving and saying goodbye to my old house because I lived the happiest days of my life there. Oh, it was so hard. I moved my family from Phoenix to Seattle and moved my mom here too. I didn't think I would survive it but I did and it will all pass and settle down. Hang in there.

I lost 10 pounds during all that too (trust me, I get it, it is unbearable stress moving)...on the bright side, maybe the whoosh fairy will have mercy!

Whew I am beat we worked all day yesterday I thought we had a lot done but apparently there is more and more stuff to deal with, LOL!!!! Moving is by far the greatest stress of all that darn fairy better come soon, once I get to Mom's I need to get really strict like super strict and keep running that race will be coming 5/4 I would ideally love to get 15 pounds off til then, but at this rate 5 will please me!

I think I would be not so sad if we were moving directly to the new house, I think I am more worried with this short sale house will everything go through and now we really love the house and there is nothing else around that we even like, so all my eggs are in that basket!

Probably at least 2 months maybe 3 at Mom's, its a long commute and then Bobby will be starting baseball, one thing Mom is always good at helping with that stuff and since her gas is paid with her company car she doesn't mind running back and forth so that is good, and like Thursdays he has early band practice so I told my ex he is going to have to stay there on Wed nights, my ex is actually close to my Mom and feels my pain in that regard! My Mom is great a very caring heart but super crazy grandma, and her way is the right way, KWIM? But she is trying to make it as nice as possible for us. The other issue we have is where to park the 3rd car, I am thinking maybe my aunts house, since mom lives in a condo there are not enough assigned parking spots.
Today we move the kittys that should be fun, OMG my cat hates the car she growls and gets all frothy at the mouth, this should be fun, we decided I am taking one and Tony taking one so they don't feed off each other's crying.
I have enough beauty products to wash and condition half of Reading and what happened the trash co took our huge trash cans on Friday they were suppose to do final pick up on this Friday!!!! So now everything is sitting there! Ughghg!!!
Well better get moving! I slept until 6:30 today so that was good, we had a Fro Yo Fun open so we checked it out last night, they have lots of sugar free and fat free choices but the wall of candy toppings was hard to resist!!! It was good. We never have anything exciting around here!

Good luck with all the moving. Lovely that grandma wants to help out with Bobby and even the ex for not making it more difficult or complicated for you is a plus. Hang in there..everything will happen as it is supposed to!

Mmmmmmmm love fro yo! My most favoritist one just closed here I am sooooo sad! There are several others around but definitely not the same. I always got the fat free chocolate and then put reese's on it...They cancel eachother, right?

OMG moving my cat was a disaster!! She was so pissed, we only had one cat carrier so Tony put Lily in there and drove her I had my cat Gracie, she would not sit still, she climbed on me and hot the window button I almost swerved off the road trying to get her, what a long ride, so we got to Mom's and they both ran and hid LOL But they will be fine once we are all there. Moving the stuff into Mom's wasn't so bad, we did it, now we are down to the last minute stuff here, finally nearing the end of the battle! I am exhausted my body feels like I had a workout everything is sore so much lifting and carrying up and down the steps so that is counting as a workout! So I will take this week to get settled at Mom's and by the weekend join the gym there I guess so I can keep working out and I must keep running!

How about those Oscar's man that show is boring as all heck, I fought to stay awake to hear Adele, I love her and I loved Skyfall, but come on!!!! That show is too long and too slow moving!!!! I thought Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning and Charlize Theron she is such a beauty! I was glad Anne Hathaway won too, I wasn't crazy about her dress though. Both of them look really cute with short hair.

2 more nights in my house and then that is it!!! Getting sad and stressed!!! Now I am thinking am I going to need this or that?? LOL

AAAWWW Poor cat. Hopefully they will adjust once at your moms.

Moving is def a workout!!! No doubt about it. Yea the Oscars was a total SNOOZEFEST!!! I only watched for Adele and Jennifer Hudson. Yea I am glad Anne Hathaway won too. Love her cut... dress not so much either. washed her out.

YAY for the bonus. I am so glad this job is working out for you.

I will be saying a special prayer for you and staying with moms..... lord knows I would be pulling hair out!!!

Amber, I feel your pain on moving. We move on average every two years. No fun, but at least my cat is good about it!

So sorry that you are having so much stress. They say moving is right up there with marriage, divorce, death and new baby.

Awesome about the bonus.

Very disappointed with the Oscars .... bad jokes and too much time wasting.

HATE moving, but I am pretty good at purging stuff now.
If I haven't touched it, worn it, or needed it in a year it goes.

Girls I am an emotional wreck this morning so many thought sin my head, and stuff everywhere, one bright side the water pipe is almost fixed at new house so next week we can have utilities turned on but my agent said plan on 4-6 months yet I am like oh no buddy we need to hear 2-4 not 4-6. And of course it is warm but pouring, ughh. Well hope I can connect at mom's she never knows her wifi code to give an update tomorrow, wish me luck. Also have to go get my boobies smashed for a mammo in between everything today, with not living here I thought I better get that done too!

Off to pack!!!!! Waking up at Mom's tomorrow!!!!

Finally able to get on the internet! Moving was terrible, but its over and I had settlement yesterday the couple that bought my house is really nice, they were excited, first time home buyers and they lived in the city their whole life, so I am officially homeless, it is an adjustment, but I am praying it is short lived. We can have the home inspection on the new house next Saturday so that is good!!!!

Ughghg what a week!!! Biggest bonus ever for Feb, yeah!!!!!! Bring on March!!!!
