My blog...

I have been neglecting it! I started reading the O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson and they are so good, I highly recommend them. Though I will warn you they are addicting and each book is over 300 pages. I am whiping through the books like crazy, I started reading them at the beginning of April, I am halfway through the 5th book and there are 2 more books in the series. I also have been neglecting my house because I have been reading during the kids naps which is when I usually do my cleaning. Yesterday, we had Realtor come over to take a look at our house and see what we should/could do to help it sell. There really isn't much we would need to do which is great. But then we sat down to start talking about actually selling it, what we would get, if it was a good idea and yada yada yada. Well J and I pretty much walked away saying that we can make this house work for at least 3 years if not more, we just want a bigger house we don't need one right now. It's tight but if we de-clutter and purge things we don't use/need we can live here that long. I am kind of relieved that we decided this because the thought of having the house clean in a moments notice is a bit daunting with 4 little munckins running around making it a mess ALL. DAY. LONG.

Anyways, also wanted to give a Peanut update on the whole potty training thing. She is AMAZING. This girl basically potty trained herself. In the 2 + weeks she has been without a diaper she has had 7 accidents and she has only peed in her pull up 2 at night. I don't have to reminder her to go potty she just tells us and goes. She has been by far the easiest of the kids and the other kids were pretty easy in my opinion. Well I have sleeping babies and I have a book calling my name ;)

Yay for Peanut!! And now is not a good time to sell your house. I'm glad you guys don't HAVE to sell.

Yay Peanut!!! Isn't that a relief when that milestone is reached?? Whew! I'm addicted to Karen Kingsbury books right now, though was given "The Shack" as a gift and am loving that one currently. It's a great read! Check it out!
