Well, happy middle of the week friends! This week seems to be going much much better than this time last week, so I am one happy mom of the stay at home variety. Nothing too exciting has gone on. Chris has been off (so far) this week so we have been trying to get some errands done and out of the way before the weekend. Ace's days are always so long Tuesday-Thursday that we have a ton of extra time to run around or switch off watching the kids depending on what each of us has going on.
The home projects are now beginning since we are creeping closer and closer to moving! And I am telling you, my children are far more destructive than my giant dogs. (we also have a very high threshold for wild and crazy activities in this house, as evident on my snapchat. The pulling each other on roller blades with hockey sticks didn't end well). I have been trying to tell realtors that in Savannah when they say "well yes the owners will allow large dogs up to 65 pounds". I am sorry, that is not a large dog in my house, that is just a large primary school child. But!! Two houses popped up this week that are near perfect for our family size, and backyard preferences. I am hoping money can talk a little bit and I can convince these people that the size of my dogs really has nothing to do with their destruction level. One conversation went like this:
me: well yes we have two dogs, a labrador and a great dane.
owner: oh okay we have a chocolate lab, great dogs. what are their weights?
me: cough....cough.... 95 and 118, respectively.
owner: silence......chuckle...umm...was that your weight or the dogs?
me: well I am flattered you think I weigh 95 pounds, but those are the dogs.
owner: well, let me think about it and I will email you.
me: i'll double the pet deposit.
Have I ever told you how excited I am for the day that this military journey comes to a close and I can have 600 animals and not have to worry about it? The excitement is real.
But it is totally fine, it will all work out. I am actually really excited for this move. The area has some of my favorite stores! I know, it is probably not the best practice to gauge my moving happiness off of shopping opportunities. But can you say Anthropologie and Sephora? Because I can!
Speaking of shopping! This oversized ruffle sweater is the softest and most comfortable thing I currently own. It is lightweight, so perfect for this little spring transition we have going on.
I hope you guys are having a great week thus far!
