I wish I were a more eloquent speaker/writer. I read other blogs that go on about their lives and they are funny and insightful, and a pleasure to read. I feel that my blog is just throw-up on paper . . . so here is my blah!
WOW, Life is crazy right now! Cris is living in Provo and has since
October 10th. OH MY what a change in lifestyle. It is crazy how
dependent I am on my spouse, I didn't realize it until he was gone of
course. Life is very stressful as a somewhat single mom. Cris leaves
on Sunday night and comes home later on Friday night. It makes for a
VERY long week. I unfortunately become a very stressed out maniac. My
kids are neglected a bit as I get into my zone of survival.
It was a long 6-8 weeks but our house FINALLY sold! We were even
able to get more than our asking price, which was a huge relief and
answer to many prayers. The only downside is the loan doesn't close
until January 17th or it could be a week longer. Life in the fast lane is beginning now however! This weekend we are going down to Provo/Lehi to celebrate Cayten's 6th b-day at Trafalga, Next weekend we are going to Temple Square and Mo-Tab Christmas Concert, the next weekend is Christmas, then New years, then my anniversary. The only way I will have a break on a weekend is if closing gets delayed by a week and I am truly hoping it does NOT!
We have decided to build a house in Spanish Fork. I am so EXCITED and nervous and scared all at the same time! Unfortunately we wont be able to start the building process until this house in Nibley sells. We wont be breaking ground til the beginning to mid February which means we wont be in our new home until mid April or so.
Cayten is LOVING school. He is an excellent reader, stupendous in math, and loves having friends. He is turning 6 next Monday and I can't wait to post about all his birthday festivities.
Clarysa is wonderful. I love her spunk most days. She sure knows how to take me for a ride but I wouldn't give her up for the world. She misses her daddy and prays constantly for us to be together soon. One of her spunky days she said "I am never being nice again until daddy is home forever" and even as I type that I can hear her saying it over and over and over again.
Carsyn is such a big boy. He is already scootin around and can get nearly everywhere he wants to be, it just takes a while. He is already 20lbs and 27 inches tall. He is the size of a 1 year old at age 6 months! My kids are always chunky but don't usually reach 20lbs until 9 months or so. He is a happy baby and we love every minute with him. He sleeps through the night pretty consistantly and loves eating food and laughing and smiling.
***A little disclaimer of my last post, nothing against Cris's previous place of employment, they were great to us for many years, but it was never a career and could never pay the potential Cris amounted too. A little bird got back to me saying they were offended that I was posting on my blog what a horrible employer they were but that is not the case. It was wonderful while it lasted, however, all things must come to an end and all things have their time and purpose. I enjoyed the friendships made while he worked there and have no ill feelings towards those still there, it was just time for us to move on, so I apologize if things were taken out of context in my blog***
