My niece's preschool had their 4th of July parade today around their parking lot. It's really cute. All the kids dress up in red, white, and blue. They all make things and hold signs and wave at their parents. They bring a fire truck out for the kids to look at and in. We sing the National Anthem and say the Pledge of Allegiance. The kids are always so proud. We went out to support my niece. =)
ANYWAY.... a friend of mine (and old neighbor) was there for her kids. We got to talking and she pointed out Rocky's wife to me!! (If you have been following for a while you know my neighbor-to-be, Rocky, has been following my blog as one of the Anons). I felt so bad for her being out in the heat and pregnant! But she seemed to be handling it well! At the end of the parade I went up and said hello and introduced myself. I couldn't stay long. Her class was getting ready to take pictures it seems. But at least I got to say hi!!
My old neighbor was telling me she was due to deliver around their time of closing the end of July. Our houses are neck and neck so I can only assume we should be closing around the same time. How stressful to be that far along AND move! I have moved pregnant twice! NOT FUN!!! Anyway, she seemed very sweet! I think I startled her though! Hope I didn't scare her! lol
So for my countdown today ... # 20 Bigger kids closets!!
The closets in this house are TINY!!! My two eldest girls share one that is just under 3 ft wide. Small closet to fit 2 girls close in. So the girls are sharing dressers and small closet space. It's no wonder we have their clothes spread out in other small closets upstairs AND hanging off their bunk bed.
I can't tell you how trashy this makes us feel. No one should have to live this way. And we have NEVER been accustomed to living this way! But you do what you have to do. We were lucky to find a place willing to help us out and rent to us in the middle of a bankruptcy. We knew it would be temporary. (One of my moves while pregnant was to here. So yeah...a b/k, a move, AND pregnant! That was stressful.)
We are all SO thrilled that they will each not only have their own rooms now, but enough closet space for both their clothes and some of their toys! And their shoes too! =D =D =D
This house is definitely going to change our quality of life. And there is a LOT to be said for that!
