Movin' On Up

We we aren't going to the east side, but it's a catchy phrase that takes me back.

Anyway, the Racer mentioned that we may both be moving. It appears as though both the cryingmoms families will be purchasing their first homes. At the same time. Maybe even in the same week.

That is right. I think we have bought ourselves a house. I am still in a little denial about what it all means.

Without planning, both families began house-hunting around the same time.

Picture the Racer and I, strolling through homes enjoying the views and sipping our diet sodas.

Now, take that picture, and throw it out of your brain.

Instead, picture the Racer and I meeting up just about everyday while our hubbys worked. We saw countless houses and we did marvel at the wonders. Such as: pink ceiling fans, baby blue blinds, mirrored walls, etc. And these are just the homes we decided to purchase. There were also slime pools and giant murals and the granite countertop of certain death. Now, don't forget to insert our kids running around and a fair amount of wailing. (In all fairness, most of the homes we looked at were during school hours, so it was my child doing almost all of the wailing, for sure.)

So, as in standard operating procedure here at the cryingmoms, we are about to step into a new realm of chaos. We should be closing around the same time. Maybe even the same week. That may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but we are each other's free labor. And, we have most of the same friends. And we go to the same church. So, basically, if you know us personally, and have a knack for packing, painting, babysitting or have a truck...you may want to run for cover :) You can't say we didn't warn you.

The insanity of it all!!!

I couldn't be laughing harding with our God and His sense of humor that often resembles mine...

Also, we are, in fact, both moving to the east side...of the freeway.

Hide-ee-ho neighbor!
