Well, here I am!

After a grueling couple of days I am finally back online, in a somewhat put together new house. Yay! This has definitely been an experience for us all, there is nothing easy about moving two kids, cats, and a dog to a new house! Here are some things I have learned:

1. Professional Movers- Get them! They are sooooo worth the money!
2. Even moving just 5 streets away is a huge adventure, calling for over 100 boxes and lots of alcohol.
3. Leave the cats in an empty room until everything else is moved and there is a substantial amount of furniture assembled for hiding places. Your chances of getting your pillow pooped on is a lot lower this way. =)
4. Test the gate latch BEFORE you leave your dog in the "fenced in" backyard. Also make sure there are nothing nasty back there for the dog to roll in.
5. Do not try to unpack everything the same day or weekend you move in- you cannot do it, accept that fact.
6. Send the kids off for a day of fun with a relative or friend... let her spoil your kids rotten and return them to you tired and happy. It makes that first night a whole lot easier.

I am sure there are more things, but for now that is the important stuff. =) Pictures to come soon enough, till then have a great weekend!!
