Reunited!

My reunion with my kids was even better than I imagined. It felt so good in my innermost being to hold them again! Truth be told we haven't let each other go for very long since. The weekend at the lake was excellent. Quite relaxing as it brought just my family and my aunt and uncle, probably the lowest showing we've had in awhile! Still got some good fun in the sun and family bonding time though!

So today marks exactly one week until we are living in an entirely different house. It shouldn't be as weird to me as it is considering we've lived 3 different places in 4 years, but it is quite odd, really. Truth be told I LOVE the house we're in now. It is a house I had mentally imagined us in for at least 10 years when we originally bought it (would have been 2 years in September). So perhaps that is why I'm stumbling a bit in picturing me living at camp.

Well that, and the fact that I'm more the kind of person who hates bugs, tics and all things nature-esque unless I'm hiking/driving through them. Hard to imagine I'll be living amongst them and they will be my people. And only half of the house is done presently so 4 of us will live in 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a kitchen; not unpossible but certainly not ideal for me! :)

Don't read this as complaining, there are more positives to living at camp than I can name in one blog, I'm just coming to terms with my reality in a week. Give me 3 more weeks and I'll be singing koomba-freakin-ya and sleeping on a bed of money due to the lack of mortgage...or just saving that for the adoption.

Speaking of, 3 days and we're in MN learning about adoption. Woohoo! Can't wait to fill you all in. Until then, look tomorrow for a ridiculous amount of pictures from my kids week and John and my's successful domination of our yard.

:) I love that 2 rooms and a bathroom are hard. Wait until you get back from Ethiopia... that will look like a mansion. I feel like 3 bedrooms and a bath are too much for the 5 of us at times. Other times, 5 rooms would be great! You sound like a fun mommy!

This is a great blog, but seriously, can we get to celebrating me now and my glorious yard work!
