Disaster

Okay, maybe it's not a disaster, but it certainly felt like one last night when we realized that the 20 year old dish washer in our new house isn't large enough for our dinner plates (and these are normal sized plates!). I guess I'll have to actually wash dishes for the first time in years.

Poor Camden is having a really rough transition into the new house. In the back of my mind, I had prepared for the possibility that he would maybe have some difficulty moving and not being in a normal routine, but I was certainly not prepared for this very unhappy, moody child who tells us "no" over and over again, throws himself onto the floor in a fit when we tell him "no" and who even went so far as to hit me last night! Not helping matters is the fact that we have revival this week (which means church every night), the fact that we're not unpacked yet so we know where nothing is, and Brian and I are both tired and not as patient as we should be. I am just hoping that in the next few days between work and church, we can find a few moments to spend time cuddling, reading books; anything will help I think. I also think I'm going to let him go to the nursery tonight instead of having him sit in church with us. He's already had to sit through two very long services this week and I'm sure tonight will be no exception. He's a bit old for the nursery, but it might save my sanity!

I think I forgot to mention that in our new house, we have high speed internet. I had NO IDEA how cool it would be! For you scrappers out there, it takes less than 2 minutes to download a big fat kit!

I actually found time to start and almost finish a layout late last night, so look for it tomorrow.

Glad to hear you guys got moved in but sorry to hear that Camden is having some adjustment issues... Give lots of love and make sure he knows it is okay to miss the old house, etc... I'm sure stuff you are already doing!

Best of all HAVE FUN setting up the new place (is the plan to be here a while?)

Always enjoy the news and updates!
About the dishes, do as I do anymore, PAPER PLATES!
Everything will fall in place each day. We pray for your revival, and also look forward to seeing Camden!
