I might be certifiably crazy

So, I think I might have lost my mind.

Let me set the stage for you and see if you agree.

First, I am almost 7 months pregnant.

Second, I am constantly chasing around a 4 year old boy.

Third, I have a husband who works many, many hours a week (upwards of 80-100).

And now I've decided that God is leading us to sell our house and buy a new one.

All in the span of about the next 45-60 days.

Yep, I seem even more crazy when I read it in print.

We have found a house that we love about 15 miles from where we currently are. We've made an offer (feeling that God is leading) and the offer was accepted. Now, we have 45 days to sell ours and the new house is ours.

So, today, at noon, if you could say a little prayer for us. It will be our first big "tour" of the house. Many realtors will be coming through today and we hope to have a lot of interest. The house has only been on the market for 3 days, but it seems like 3 years sometimes.

God is good and faithful and is leading and that's enough for me (but my OCD got to have it planned out to the very second personality sometimes still shows through).

Pray for us!

Here is just one example of the mass amounts of mud that were present at D-Man's 4th birthday party. Believe it or not, the water in this pool was clean as could be when the party started.
Doesn't it look like every boy's dream?

This and That

Hello All...

I'm still here. I'm sure that you are not.

But, in case that you are, I thought I would let you know why I have been sporadic lately in the blogging department.

1.) Baby H continues to grow and grow and grow in my tummy. Add 100% humidity everyday and temperatures that are reaching the 100 degree mark and you've got yourself one tired, hot, cranky momma.

2.) D-Man turned 4 this week (sniff, sniff). I cannot believe it. We are prepping for the big M.U.D. party (My U're Dirty party) on Saturday and cannot wait. I will be showing you pics next on the lookout.

3.) Husband is having an incredibly busy work schedule which means I don't get much mommy downtime. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying.

4.) God is in control and some new changes might be in store for the D House. I'll keep you posted. (I love being able to say God is in control instead of me being in control...His control is soooooo much better).

5.) D-Man has had swim lessons all week. Oh my goodness gracious is all that I can say.

6.) We are still wishing we were on vacation...enough said.

I hope you guys have an awesome weekend (all 1 of you who's out there reading...thanks mom!)

I'll be back more regular next week!

Grains of Sand

I am back...or have you not noticed I've been gone?

We returned yesterday from a 9 day vacation to the great state of Florida...Destin to be exact.

There was lots of sun, sand and surf to occupy our time for many days and frankly, we are sad to be home.

But we ran out of money...and we still needed to we had to come home.

So while I unpack and try to get all the sand out of everything, I'll leave you with this picture. It sums up the week...time spent with my two favorite boys on the beaches of Destin.

I've got more stories to tell and things to share, but for now...

"I've got a couple grains in my pocket, got a couple loads that need clean. I'm trying to get my house back together, but vacation still is in my dreams."
