No, we are NOT moving again. It’s just that I still talk about the “big move” and things related to it quite a bit so it’s in the title of this post. K? K.
Actually, it’s been over nine months since we moved and things are going well. Of course it has it’s “pros” and “cons” just like anything. I do like the smaller town feel at times and we’ve already made some pretty good friends here but on the flip side having to find a baby sitter is “for the birds” and good Chinese food around here? Yeah, that doesn’t exist. I’m contemplating moving my MIL here but she’s not going for it. Oh and I need her for the babysitting, not the Chinese food. That is unless she knows how to make a really good Sesame Chicken…
It’s hard to believe that’s it’s been almost a year since we first came here to check out the town (it was on Mother’s Day weekend last year). To think we’ve almost been through every season here just kinda blows my mind.
Also, did you know that smocked dresses are VERY popular here? Yeah, I didn’t either until I moved here. Maybe it’s a Southern thing?? I think they are cute but never thought that much about them before moving here and seeing a ton of them in a local baby boutique. Yes, very popular. Our neighbor has given us a few hand-me-downs from her Granddaughter and the other day she gave me a darling smocked jumper with light green eyelette fabric and cute pink embroidered flowers. Baby K wore it to church yesterday and it’s SO sweet on her. More smocking may be in our future (her Christening dress also had it…).
Plus we’ve lived here long enough now to have accumulated 5 bajillion of those pre-addressed return labels from various charities. In which I have a couple of questions about…
1.) Wouldn’t they need LESS money from me if they didn’t waste so much money producing those and sending them out to people?
2.) And why do they always have MY name on them? Do they feel like it’s easier to play on the emotions of a woman than a man?
2.) And wouldn’t they need EVEN MORE LESS money from me if they didn’t also send note pads and cards with stickers to seal the cards and NICKELS (last time I checked those are actual money) and calendars and mini dream catchers? (please tell me I’m not the only one who got one of those?)?
I mean, I know I’m no rocket scientist or anything but I’m kinda right on this, right?
Anyway, it’s a Monday and I didn’t start my laundry until late yesterday so I better scoot.
See you on twitter or FB. You know, in between loads.
P.S. The boys washed my car this weekend and the baby’s still cute. But you probably already knew that last part…
