Settling in....

(I have pics to post, but blogger won't upload them) I will try again tomorrow.

We've been....getting through it all.

I had surgery on my tummy last week to repair that hernia. Thank GOODNESS my sister Christy drove up to take care of me and the kids (because I was ONE HOT MESS)! We will NOT go into details, just know that I slept for two days, only waking to throw up or pee.
I'm finally off the big pain meds and walking ALMOST straight (I feel like I had another c-section....but, with no baby to play with). AND...I can't lift lard-tail(Isaac) for THREE weeks.

Joe's been busy with work. Chris was away at wrestling camp this week and next week he'll be off to Utah to EFY (like a church camp).

Isaac has been a BEAST. He doesn't like that I can't hold him all day. So...you can imagine how our days are filled (with him screaming at me mostly). I can imagine what our neighbors think.

Eli has been a wonderful helper with Isaac. He spends his weekends at the pool with Joe. (he calls it his "Fatherly Son" time. (and...fyi, I asked...and I'm NOT allowed to go to the pool with them when I'm better).

I started another blog...Since moving to Wa, and then to Reno, I can't coupon the same and have to change the stores....it's all a mess. SO, I decided to put everything i do and like into one blog. Tell me what you think
CountingToTen (because I do that 764 times a day...at least)

Missed us??

SO...wondering where we've been?

I can't even remember the last thing I've told yOU. (hold on a second...let me look back at the blog and see).

gosh...it's been a FEW weeks. SO...let me get you up to speed.

  • I broke my NICE camera (and I have YET to find it in it's packed box)....therefore no pics for you to see today.
  • We moved. It was LONG process...but, thanks to our friends in Aberdeen....we made it out of there and didn't forget too many things!
  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE our new house in Reno (that's where we're at now in case I didn't mention it before). We decided on a 4 bedroom townhouse in a SUPER nice community. It's big enough for everyone to have their own bedroom, I have my big bathtub, TWO master closets, a pantry in the kitchen, NO LAWN!!!, a few community pools, community clubhouse with fitness center, 9-hole golf course. It's just perfect for us.
  • and...did I mention...the SUN! It's back. I missed you!
  • The boys all got haircuts...including Isaac. (who now looks like a cancer patient). No worries...it'll grow back in a few weeks. (and...I got him a cute hat).
  • We LOVE our new ward here in Reno.
  • Chris is going to wrestling practice everyday. (thank goodness)
  • Eli is the ONLY boy in his sunday school class...SO...I need to find him friends.
  • There's a movie theatre here that's only $3.00 (with couches in the back. I know...you almost want to bring a sheet with you JUST in case)
  • Katie is in heat and there's been a poodle stalking her. She got out...we better NOT be having yorkiepoos!
  • We have ALL been sick this past week...but, getting over in and ready to be tourists.
  • I thought I pulled a muscle in my stomach this week...but, nope...it's a hernia. SO...(like I don't have enough to do transferring all school stuff and medical stuff)...I'll be throwing in a trip to the surgeon this week to schedule surgery.
I'm sure there's MORE going on...but, you know my poor decrepit brain. We've unpack the majority of our boxes....just things like MY clothes, MY craft stuff, MY sewing, MY office....stuff like that remains.

Joe loves his new team here in Reno...we all love our neighborhood...I really think we're going to settle down for a while here and just enjoy!

(I'll find my camera, get it fixed....and post pics soon)
I pinky promise!
