Good Lord! It sure has been awhile since my last post.

Hard to believe there are only 5 more days left this month and then it'll be AUGUST. Time is flying.

Kaelynn turned 1 the end of June. She's already going to be 13 months old on Thursday. My baby girl. She is little miss independent already. And that attitude! My goodness if she doesn't take after her mommy!!!! :)

And then there's Braeden. 3.5 years old and full of more energy that a nuclear power plant. Seriously. I don't know how that child can keep going and going and going and going ....... And we are still toughing our way through the VERY TERRIBLE 3's. Oh yes. Over 7 months into the 3's and it seems he's getting worse. I'd take 2 again ANY day.

But, don't get me wrong .... I LOVE my children with all of my heart. I'd do anything for them and if need me, I'd give my LIFE for their well being. And how pathetic is this ... the other night Braeden threw up and it was all over him. I had to clean him up while hubby cleaned up the mess he made all over the loveseat and carpet .... I just do NOT have a strong stomach .... so there I am, trying to keep MYSELF from throwing up all over him while wiping his vomit off his shoulder and face. Afterwards I just sat on the couch, and tears started to stream down my face. I just felt so ashamed ... plus I was emotional from the fact that he wasn't feeling well. I can't help my sensitive stomach - but it sure did make me feel like an awful mother. :(

So, just been busy with the kids, working, cleaning, selling on ebay, yada yada yada. Getting ready for the big move. Our new house should be just about ready by this weekend and then we close on August 19. Can't wait!! Tomorrow we are closing on our townhouse and will no longer be the owners. It's kind of sad. This was our first home, our "starter" home we purchased. But, it's also very exciting that this home helped us to move ahead to bigger and better things. We will be renting for the next month from the new owners. How great that their mortgage is LESS than what we were paying?

I still can't believe at how well everything went and how lucky we were that it all worked out so well. I'm so relieved though. Now my biggest stress is getting packed and ready for the big move - and the debt we have. To just get past all that, and I'll be fine!
