MIA

I know, I know. I have been missing in action. I'm sure my 1 or 2 fans have been very upset!! I'm sorry, but to be totally honest - I have had SO MUCH FREAKIN' CRAP TO DO!!! I've been so busy trying to get things ready to move next week. Moving is a PITA. That's all there is to it. I never want to do it again or if I do it again I want to be rich enough to hire movers to do it for me. ;)
So, since I'm short on time here's a quick update:
Livie is getting so big! She had her 7 month birthday yesterday!! In the last month she has started pulling herself up in her crib, on the couch, on the fireplace and 2 days ago she crawled up 3 steps before I stopped her. She has 2 little toothies on the bottom and is still so happy. Such a delightful child.

The girls and Dad went to California where Isabel surfed with Sei. LUCKY!! That's one of my things I want to do before I'm 40 and here she is 7 getting to surf. Not fair! Kelsea and Karlea are now home in Canada and it's been weird without them here since they were at our home for 2 months. I really enjoyed their visit. The only bad thing is Isabel has a hard time sharing Dad and Mom while there here. Sei said once the girls left (they met their mom in Cali because they were going to Disneyland) that a "switch clicked" in Izzy and she was back to normal. I feel bad for her because I know it is hard. :(
The older kids all started school this week. Since we haven't moved into our new home, I've had to take them to and from school. Not bad except for having to wake Taj up to go. Then he's a grumpy butt the rest of the day. It would help if he'd actually sleep at nite. He's a spaz. I was worried about the kids starting a new school, but they like it so far. And when we move our bus stop is 3 houses down from ours and picks them up later than we've had to leave to drive there in time. So, it's all good. I like their school a lot. I think it's at a higher standard than the one they've been going to for the past 2 years.
NorthStar is now licensed by the State Of Utah. YAY!! So, if you know any troubled youth- drug abuse is NSYA specialty- pass along the website. Sei is stoked. I am stoked! What a load off.
I've been a slacker in the exercise world. The blogger world. Anything outside of packing boxes and changing utilities over I haven't been apart of. Today, to get a "break", I worked at a Shade Clothing bi-annual sale. I got to spend time with my best friends, so it was great. Plus, I got paid. :)
Welp- I better go. Sei got a sitter for tonite, so I get to spend some time with him. I think we're looking for a new washer. Woo hoo!! But, dinner will be great with my hubby. I love him so much!!!

I'm glad your back, even if it is just for a minute.

Have fun on your date tonight. You deserve it!

I was going through withdrawal without having your posts to read :-) Liv is just such a cutie! Jaxon really got a kick out of seeing how big she was now. Good luck with your move. You need to send me some pics once you get settled.

Livie is so adorable! Good luck with the move. Moving so sucks. I'm glad the kids new school is working out so well. It such a pain to have to drive them, but I actually miss driving mine now, sometimes. We had so much fun talking, singing and playing games. (We used to embarrass the older one by seeing how many people we could get to wave back at us before we reached the school. And we pretended all school buses were actually the same one. And it was Evil. Yep, we are weird!)

I totally missed you, Tori. I wish I could be there to help you pack and clean and watch kids while you move. I hope setting up your new house is more fun for you!

Remind me where you're moving to...Orem?

Tori :) said...

Yes- Orem.

Sounds like you've been busy. Glad everything is going good!

Shoot. This may sound random, but...I was thinking, if you were going to be here next spring, our girls would probably both be getting baptised on the same day (stake baptisms)...
