I'm Aliiiiiiiiiiive!

Hello? Is anyone there?


Ugh, cyber moth balls and code dust. Bleh.

Looks like this place hasn't been touched in a while.

Oh wait, I remember this! This is my blog. Indeed, it is starting to come back to me. Once upon a time I spent much of my week recording all the day-to-day antics of my wild and motley bunch.

Ah, those were the days.

People use to read this, (still not sure why) and even comment. *gasp*

Yes, I have been blogging long enough that I remember when people use to leave comments.

Consider me ancient.

Still, I am so far behind I'm not even sure where to start! Especially when there are so many current happenings I really should keep up on as well.

If I actually get around to blogging this week, you may get some serious time whip-lash as I jump between current and past happenings.

Ooh ooh ooh! *complete change in story line* But good news! We FINALLY finished the two bedrooms in the basement!

*insert awkward happy chicken dance*

The eight of us will finally be able to spread out to five bedrooms instead of squeezed into three.

So basically I will be re-doing my entire house.

I am terrified at what I will find under all the furniture and in the dark corners of the closets.

I may not come out of this the same.

For the next couple weeks my home will be in a constant state of epic disaster awesomeness.

I need to make a sign to hang on my front door. "Visitors beware! House under complete renovation. Please leave chocolate and run!"

I only looking out for their welfare.

The only down side is that I need to go through each child's clothing stash, figure out what doesn't fit anymore and trade out sizes.

I have been avoiding this day for far too long.

But I suppose it's not fair for my children to have to endure high-water pants and wedgies forever.

And so, I am off to tackle the day.

Who knows? I may even be productive enough to finish another post for tomorrow.

Because I believe in miracles.

Speaking of miracles, if you still visit this almost deserted corner of the blogosphere, you deserve a concentrated dose of adorable cuteness to brighten your day.

You're welcome.

Congrats on the basement!! I am awfully jealous! We are squeezing the 10 of us into 3 bedrooms. We were only supposed to be here for 3 years and now we just hit our 7th year anniversary. Some days I'm so mad about it I just want to pack up and leave. But then I get down on my knees and pray. Sure wish we could build a basement so that the kids have somewhere to play while the little ones nap. Really, I'm happy for you. And I love, love, love going through clothes and getting rid of toys/junk and rearranging kid stuff. Wish I could come help you! Can't wait to read about it.

Ah, thanks Raelyn!

Marcie - I bow to your greatness. :) Man, all 10 of you in three rooms, wow. Reminds me of my husband's family. 11 people in a five small rooms, and ONE bathroom! Hang in there superwoman!

Sue said...

Cool about the basement. All the hassle will be worth it...but you're right. You are in for a bit of an organizational pain in the you know what!
