The Big One

This is the "big" 100th post. As usual, don't expect too much.

One of the first things that The Muffin asked this morning was, "Where are we going today?". That's always one of those questions that I dread. I usually try to happily say that we'll be hanging out at home today. She always requests that we go to the grocery store...of all places. I enjoy a day or two every week where we just stay at home and play and I think she needs a day once in a while with nothing planned. She thrives on Kindermusik, Storytime, grocery shopping and Wal.Mart runs. She's my girl. I like to go, too.

I'm still debating on the whole preschool-thing for my Muffin. I don't want to get her settled into a "school" (the church near our house) for a couple of mornings a week and then sell our house and have to move and uproot her. She doesn't like change. I don't want her to have to give up her house, her friends, her church and her school for all new things. I think she would benefit from time away from me and Baby Ellie, but I don't want her to think that I'm sending her off to school because there's a new baby in the house. AND I will be a part-time-single mother then.

My friend Linda will be here this afternoon to list our house. I always keep things neat and clean, so I've only been trying to get rid of clutter and do my normal weekly cleaning. (My normal cleaning is probably more extensive than most people's) Hopefully, our house will sell relatively quick and we can find an apartment (gasp!) until we are ready to house hunt or most likely, build. Big Daddy and I lived in an apartment for our first two years of marriage and neither of us want to go back to that kind of home, especially with children. We decided that it would be less stressful and take some pressure off of us if that was our plan. No matter what, we are stressed and we worry about everything involved with selling, moving and trying to make things as fun and easy as possible for Muff.

Join me in praying for a quick sell!

Aren't you glad you keep everything clean so when something like this happens, it's less work? I always get nervous for people when they put their house on the market just because of what happened to us. Hopefully, it will sell soon so y'all can get on with your lives in a new place.

I am a clean freak, too, though my house doesn't seem like it today. Funny how Muffin loves to run around doing errands all the time!

If I get dressed in the morning, Bumble Bee (my youngest) runs to get her socks and says, "Bye-bye?" Maybe I should change out of sweats more often... LOL!

My boys are ten and thirteen and they STILL ask if we have anywhere to go. The good part is... they too, enjoy staying at home a few days out of the week (we homeschool). I guess I run so many errands, they're sick of going (lol).
