August 4, 2014

Life around here is crazy. We'll be moving in 11 days, and I have yet to pack a single box. I'm not too worried, because I'm really a very efficient mover, it's just the point. I HAVE been prepping for a yard sale this weekend though, so I have been cleaning and purging, which is a step in the right directions.

We also discovered that Taylor has LYME DISEASE. Because our life always needs a bit more excitement. At any rate, she is on a high dose antibiotic, and we are to watch her like a hawk for any worsening or changes in her skin.

Also, we went to our new ward yesterday. Troy's parents were here, and their flight home left during the middle of our normal church service. We looked up when the new ward meets, and found that it started at 1pm, so we decided to head over there after dropping them off at the airport. Everyone was quite lovely, and my kids were quick to point out all the differences between the two church buildings. (This one had pews in the chapel! And they didn't even move! And they have a real basketball court! And a primary room!) Needless to say, everyone was excited.

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to finish up my last class of the semester. I want to do it as fast as I can, then cancel our horrible satellite internet service. When Troy's home, we use his phone as a mobile hotspot, because it works WAY better than our standard service... which is pretty sad, if you ask me.

OH! And Blayne is home! She had a fabulous time in Arizona, but she missed us a lot. She got to visit all of her cousins on both sides of the family. She also went on an LDS temple tour. She even brought back a small chunk of rock that was used to build the St. George, Utah temple. She also went to Walt Disney World and got her princess on. I'm sure I'll hear all about it in the coming weeks, but for now, she's staying glued to her siblings. I don't think she quite knew what to do without them!

Other than that, it's same old, same old around here. Bills, laundry, and dinner. That is my life.
