August 29th... one month ago today.
One month ago I bought a house.
I can't believe it has only been one month since that day! It seems like it has been much longer but maybe that's because I squeezed so much into that one month.
On August 29th Liza had her first day of Kindergarten.
We picked her up from that and then headed to our house closing.
I spent the next two days cleaning cleaning cleaning the new house and then that Saturday we took a day trip to my parents' house to visit because my sisters were in town.
We came back home and continued cleaning the new house. Eventually we were able to start with the painting! Woo hoo!! I spent days and days painting. I'm sill not done and the hallway might just remain with its coat of primer for a while. I'm too tired to think about painting it!
About three days before moving I finally decided that I should start packing.
Oh yeah... somewhere in the middle of all of this Jason also had his first day of school and Liza had picture day and a fundraiser. Geez!
Two weeks ago today we moved into the new house and I've been attempting to unpack ever since. But we are exhausted! And I had to take a second trip to my parents' house this month (2 hours one way) for my cousin's wedding... which I photographed.
(Are you tired yet??!)
We had Liza's birthday to celebrate and mine.
I had a kickoff party to organize and throw for the women's ministry at my church.
I totally slacked when it came to helping Amy with Butler Praise and Coffee this month.
I met some nice neighbors.
This month has been INSANE! My brain is totally fried. My body is exhausted. I still have a lot of boxes to unpack. Ugh!
I am totally looking forward to October. I don't have any really big plans on the calendar. I'll be heading to St. Marys again for a wedding but this time I'm simply a guest and I'm going to kick back and enjoy it! I want to have a girls night. And I want to take some time to unpack... if it happens hooray! If not, there is always November. :) I'm ready for a slower pace of life.
I need a few weeks to catch my breath.
