I don't even know where to begin!
It is, by nature, a crazy time of year for me--election season. As the county's Democratic leader, I have a pretty big job each fall--to help my candidates get elected. Balancing that with a busy law office, a working husband, and three toddlers is no easy feat.
We try to find time each day to be crafty.
And, if there wasn't enough chaos, we just listed our house for sale...because a house with three toddlers is so easily show-ready.
It all came about when a realtor-friend had a buyer who wanted a historic house--they knew we were looking to move in the not so distant future, and they called to see if we would mind if the buyers did a drive by. The drive by was followed by one hour-long showing, and when they wanted another showing we figured we needed to see what was out there, to avoid homelessness after our sale. And we found, pretty much, the perfect house. And then the buyers put in an offer on the smaller Victorian, and not ours. So, Wes and I brought the family to see the house and it was perfect. Perfect enough to try to buy. So we put in an offer contingent on our sale and they said YES.
So, it's been hyper-speed here trying to make our house show-ready so that
we can lose our shirts on this sale and hopefully not have to bring money to the closing sell quickly.
Meanwhile, Tommy has decided to dress as a drag queen for Halloween.
Dani is rocking Pre-K. Got her standardized assessments today, and she is in the 99th percentile for everything. (She was born 8 days too late to start pre-k last year....school district doesn't budge on that.)
We are still doing a really good job at family dinners, and family time. We have three little conversational people and it's starting to be a lot of fun.
I just need more hours in the day.
