i've been doing it for 3 days and i DON'T want to do it anymore. i would post a picture of the wall of boxes that is in the middle of the living room...but i'm to tired to turn around and take the picture.
i guess the good news is i'll pretty much be done tomorrow. but the bad news is i have to get everything done by then. so the real question is: why am i waisting time blogging about it when i could be finishing up?
ya, ya i'll get back to work now

by the way...i hate the word "busy" because my mom always says she's "soooo busy" when she's not...so jake and i like to imagine she is saying "lazy" anytime she says "busy" and it's not only funny but it makes more sense!!!

rose cheered me up today tho...she is sending me my birthday present early and i know what it is, which is a present in itself because i hate surprises. thanks rose!!!!
so after this wild 1st half of my day. solly, moses, and i all headed up to lynnwood to have a birthday dinner with my in-laws. moses was feeling pretty good so i felt like it might be fun...well that was short lived after he was done eating he decided to flip out! i feel like i ruined my father-in laws birthday dinner with a snotty whining baby :(
but my whole day was made better when we got home from the disaster dinner and moses found his new favorite thing...the guitar.
ahhhhh...i think everything will be ok.

church was good. moses was feeling good. he was looking like he wanted to sleep forever by the time we left so i brought him straight home and put him down for a nap. about 45 min later he was awake and i went to get him and the next thing i remember was an explosion of barf and then a few small aftershocks. after he was clean and dressed we went to costco to stock up on diapers.
he is now happily sleeping...i wish i was.
i am going crazy. i know that i am moving soon...but it just doesn't feel soon enough. people in the house are acting more annoyed with me. i am as always more annoyed with them. i don't want to do anything but pack and get outta here!!! i suppose that means i should start packing...boy am i in for a shock when i start and realize how much crap i have laying around here. i don't care i'll pack it all up, get the heck out of here, then have a garage sale when i move!!!
hurry time, move faster!

well goodnight friends...keep it classy!

i did have fun today despite missing my boys. we took a drive up the gorge and took in some beautiful sites we went to a museum and just took things nice a slow. it was fun & relaxing. we went for the "safe" choice for lunch (no more pubs for us) and had olive garden, i was full before i even got my food. but it was sooooo good.
then we went to our friends wedding. and i must say, it was a really great wedding. they did things different but not weird just their way and it was fun. we got to see a few people that we haven't seen in over 6 years. and we enjoyed some good wedding pie (that's right! pie...no cake).
and now we're just trying to figure out what to do with ourselves for our last few hours alone. i'm thinking some tv and then a good nights sleep. sweet, sweet sleep....
oh yes, remember what i said about jake and the hair dryer...turns out he was drying the steam off the mirror for me!! isn't he just the best!?!?
even after such a great day i was feeling the sting of a disappointing valentines day and just as any woman would do i whined a little....so this morning i woke up to my hubby sitting next to me and a trail of chocolates (by this i mean whole boxes of chocolates) leading to my favorite candy and a VERY funny (and in our own sick sense of humor, sweet) card. my sweet (annoying) hubby knows me all to well. he just wanted to wait till the day after so he could buy me twice as much for half the price and i can't get mad about that :)
so our plans for today are to drive down the gorge and see the sites and do some shopping. i hope to take some pictures today too. then later this evening we do what we came here to do....go to a wedding (i almost forgot that's why we're here)
p.s. i just heard jake turn on the hair dryer in the bathroom...thats not normal...

i have a lot to do to get ready for our weekend. but i'm hopeful that i can get it all done.
jake and i both saw the duplex today and have decided to go for it! we need our own space. we've been living in other peoples space for way to long. it's not a huge place but it's perfect. with just enough room for rose (and other visitors). it has a nice big fenced yard and its across the street from a huge park. i am trilled.
today feels like christmas :D

a quick stop at mcd's for a big mac cheered me up a tiny bit. but now i just feel like a pig.
maybe tomorrow will be better...

i hope you're enjoying this ashley!

after getting home and taking solly to school jake, moses and i headed off to a local trailer park to look at a "modular home" that is for sale. although i'm not wild about the idea of living in such a place i am wild about the amount of space that are in those houses!
so after a quick drive around town looking for more living options we headed home. where moses tried his best to single handedly tear the house apart...after about 2 hours of chasing him from one mess to another it was nap time (thank you jesus!) so down he went and it was time for jakes monthly hair cut in the bathroom. once he was all beautified i cleaned the mess with my mini vac and was heading down the hall to put things away when i heard a loud "thud" coming from mosey's room...he's 1 2/2 i knew immediately what had happened...and when i got to his room 1.3 seconds later there he was in a heap on the floor. my poor baby!! he just leaned a little too far over that crib railing. after some cuddling and cartoons it was nap time round 2! worked like a charm and i got a nice little nap myself.
oh and it continued to snow, hail and sleet though out the rest of the day...ick!
now if i can just make it through the next 2 hours to bed time i'll consider myself lucky!
