And In-Laws Make Six...

Well, it has been quite the last few days. Busy, busy, busy! Thursday night, mom came down, and thank God she was here. Jason had to help his brother pack and load stuff up in a truck and his wife, my sister in law, had class so I took their 9 month old daughter, Mileena, over here to watch. Poor thing has the rash of all rashes down you know where and was so NOT happy. She was tired, made herself throw up, and finally passed out around 9:30 or 10 with my mom standing in our Florida room swaying back and forth. They slept here Thursday night. I worked Friday and mom came during my 6th period class to see the chaos that ensues and she cannot believe I make it out of that class without causing bodily harm to some...it's my worst class and completely exhausts me by the time 8th period rolls around.

Mom went to a hotel Friday night and Steve & Amber brought more stuff over. Saturday morning, they finally decided to rent a truck. I decided to stay behind to try and organize the space a bit and make room for their stuff where there was no room. I took Gabe to the Jameson Inn where mom was staying and ran some errands. I bought an over the toilet organizer for their bathroom b/c without it, there would be no room for anything. Bought one for our bathroom too since we could always use the extra space. I reorganized our pantry (if that's what you want to call it) so that we could fit their food in it too and now we have a ton of food....shouldn't need to go on a serious shopping trip for some time. Amber and I had an interesting time putting together their bathroom organizer...I'll leave it at that. Two deliriously exhausted women with tools and only pictures as directions can lead to some very inappropriate comments....I'm just sayin'. :)

Sunday we missed out on church because we were just exhausted. We all went over to their mom's for ribs and corn for lunch and then my honeys and I came back home to try and organize while Steve and Amber went to church for a dinner. Jason reorganized the garage (which is now full of all of their stuff) so that we could have a walkway. I hung up clothes and tried to clean up the kitchen. I ran by the store and when I came home we sat outside for a bit with our sweet pea. Jason has been working on a necklace that will help him remember to pray for Israel. It's a cross made out of cedar with a star of David carved into it. Really neat!!

I think we finally managed to pass out around 11 and I was up at 7:30 (well 3:30 to feed the baby and back down at 4:00). Jason made us omelets. They went looking at houses and I went out with my lil booger while Jason worked on putting a window unit in our Florida room. Thank God we had a day off today....and thank God for those that died, the very reason we have this day off. Gabe and I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond so I could buy some Wonder Hangers to help alleviate space problems in our closet and their closet. I bumped in to an old professor from college...whom I absolutely adore...and we caught up a bit. I met the family at Ling's Buffet for lunch, then we went over to Southern Hospitality in Plant City. We've decided that we really do want to decorate our house cabin style which might mean some things have to go but that's okay. Jason found an awesome entertainment center that he's actually going to make. Why pay $3800 for something when you have an amazingly talented husband who can build it? He's already measured and drawn out everything on paper. I can't wait!!! It's gonna be off the chain!!

So, our house now consists of 4 adults, 2 children under the age of 1, one boxer dog, one papillon dog, and one cat....oh and A LOT more stuff. But, we're getting creative with space and while it's still a work in progress, we'll get there. So that was my weekend....

And I am super sleepy so I'm gonna get off of here, and get some things done so I won't need to do them later...

Toodles!
