Welcome to Manic Mommy Monday, started by The Gnome’s Momhosted by Crunchier by the Day and 2 SleepingBabieswhere Mommy bloggers from all walks of life join together to share a little bit about ourselves, our families, our lives. Sometimes we get too busy planning events and running around that we need a reminder to just take a breath and enjoy the insanity.

Enjoy to the Mania! 

I posted last week and promptly forgot to add it to the linky…go figure.

And I completely forgot this week until the awesome Tara sent me the linky and reminded me.

I have an excuse though.

I’m a little preoccupied. As of tonight we are officially moved!

The last load was put into the car and the last counter scrubbed. We’ll go back up tomorrow and turn in our keys when we vote. Woohoo and we’ll be done!

Until we get home and have to unpack and get settled by Jaron’s birthday party on Saturday.

All pure books, and this is not even all of them…there were 6 more boxes still hiding in the apt!

He had a wonderful birthday, my dad took the boys and toured something like 4 different playgrounds throughout the day, took them to lunch and all of us to dinner and fro-yo. And all I know is the boys were thrilled that T-COM took care of them all day and they slept like rocks that night. I on the other hand woke up to full body cramps and wound up spending my “extra hour” of sleep on the couch waiting for Advil to kick in. Ugh, can we say out of shape much?

So that ‘s it, now to get busy and do something with the walls of boxes all over the place!!!

  This poor blog is getting sadly neglected, hoping that will change in a few weeks with the arrival of a new tablet w/ keyboard.

Fingers crossed that our days of only one computer screen larger than 4″ are over!

After having housing issues, not getting calls back, having contracts on them, having massive prerequisites and rules…we finally put in an application on the fourth house we’ve been interested in over the weekend. Several other families also have their eye on it, so I guess at this point we just wait and

pray!

The boys are thrilled with the idea of moving, so I’m hoping that this will be an easy transition.

When we haven’t been driving around looking at houses (I’ve lost count of how many we’ve seen) we’ve been having playdates. It nice to find some kids that are the boys’ ages or very close that they can play with. They love each other, but it’s nice to make new friends too!

Signing off for today, going to make it a priority to get a couple more posts up this week…gotta do something or the bots & spiders will forget me!!

It has been a week.

Emotionally.

Physically.

Spiritually.

It’s been rough. I’m from a conservative background, so it goes against everything I was taught, raised, and impressed with, to equate anything with hell. But if I were to name something that came close, it would have to be this week.

Technically we’re in the middle of it. I had a Dr’s appointment that has raised a lot of questions and absolutely no answers. I have another test this coming Wednesday that should help with that, so at this point we are just praying and hoping for the very best, and we’ll deal with anything else after the test. It’s just going to be a long couple of days!

On the upside, we’re starting most of our fall schedule this week! Ballet classes start back, hooray!! I’ll be taking a class, Aedyn will be taking a class, and I’ll be teaching another class.

I will also be co-hosting Manic Mommy Monday’s from now on with Tara from Crunchier By The Day. Lori’s (The Gnome’s Mom) got so much going on right now that it’s just, well, manic! We’re thrilled to be able to help out and keep #MMM going.

My weeks seem to fly by anymore.

Sure, some days seem to drag on…and on…and on.

But 7 days just doesn’t seem as long as it used to.

Aedyn officially graduated from swimming lessons after successfully swimming fully clothed in both summer and winter attire. I have to admit that even though I’m fully confident in his skills, watching him have to really work to get to the side of the pool in his water soaked parka was a a little nerve wracking. His instructor had to work to get him out of the water and I almost couldn’t pick him up, the wet coat added so much weight!!! I am so proud that he can do what he can do, but it makes me even more want to prevent it from happening in the first place!!

Jaron is so close to graduating that it’s not even funny, he just wants to hang out in a float all lesson and not flip back over and swim/reach for the side of the pool. They’ll work on that this week and he’ll probably graduate next week!

Then it will be time to start school!! I’m excited for Aedyn to have the “work” time that he’s been asking for, but am a little intimidated by the commitment to keeping everything fresh for him and having enough variety. Trying not to cross that bridge before I need to though, and stay flexible to stay fun! Or something like that…

Hoping this video upload works (first time I’ve posted video, look at me growing up!), this is Aedyn’s summer clothes check out: (Infant Swimming Resource Program via Merritt Island Swim School) He does the full Swim, Float, Swim sequence at 1:12 on the video.

Welcome to Manic Mommy Monday hosted by The Gnome’s Mom! Every week we link up posts that are updates about us and what is going on in our lives. Everyone is welcome to link up  and you can find more information on the main Manic Mommy Monday page.

Well, it’s been a week!

I’m officially hired to teach ballet this fall.

We’re reworking finances and adjusting to the mindset and reality

Such a crazy week that Aedyn couldn’t even stay awake for the toy aisles!

of commission based budgeting.

Aedyn will be taking his “exams” for swim lessons and then be done this week. Tomorrow he will “fall in” and swim in summer clothes and shoes and Wednesday will be winter clothes. Since, in Florida, summer and winter clothing is the same, we’ll be digging into the few things that we had last year in hopes of making a winter trip to Tennessee or Nebraska. So, an almost too small heavy winter coat. I’ll be sure to get pictures, and I know his instructor will as well.

Jaron has a little bit more to go. I’m not sure how it will work to have him swimming and not Aedyn for another week or two, but I’m guessing it will be a lot of promises of swimming in our pool in the afternoon.

That’s about it for this week!! If you’ve got a Manic Mommy post, leave a link! I know Lori’s (The Gnome’s Mom) life has been beyond crazy, so it might be another couple weeks before the Linky is up and running again.
