So why else am I exhausted? Well, we've been putting in as much time as we have left into Emily's room. The trim needs nailed down, the carpet stretched and outlet covers and she can move the rest of her stuff in. We are still in search of just the right furniture, but there's no hurry. She has a bed and that's what is important for now.
I can't wait to move Emily's stuff into her room. I need to get my craft stuff out of my grow room so I can plant! Remodelling involves shuffling piles from one part of the house to the next, but the good part is that every time we do we get rid of some of it!
More hoarding? Really, my "baby" is four and I still have a stack of baby blankets. I couldn't quite part with them, but they did go into storage. One day my boys will bring me home grand-babies and I will be able to wrap them in the same blankets. I'm a sentimental fool like that.
Well, here we are at 11:15PM and my eyes feel like they have sand in them. The three littles are curled up watching the end of a movie. Nick hit the sack early and so did Homer. I felt so bad as he was so tired tonight, but he still went to the party as family is so important. Getting up before 5:00AM every day and then getting Elijah to weight lifting three days a week by 5:50AM makes him pretty beat by the weekend. The adults in this house get very little sleep and zero "free" time, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Soon enough they'll be grown and it will just be the two of us with more time than we can fill. For now, I'm quite happy with these exhausting days. What will tomorrow bring??? (Besides all that homework!).
