Eating us out of house and home....

I first must say it was nice to not have to get up to go to work today! I love it....Day 1 as a stay at home mom is in the books.....and I want to wish a Happy Birthday to my brother in law, Joel! We will be in Austin soon.....

Today was filled with LOADS of packing....I think mostly everything is packed, except our clothes and bathroom stuff......Holy Crap we have a ton of clothes between the 5 of us.....Lets just say the pile of DOOM that usually resides at the foot of the closet is gone!!! Separating them out in to Pullman, Austin and Goodwill took me a good part of the afternoon....but I can tell you that I have all the girls clothes done and packed! Yeah!

So I think the big girls are on a major growth spurt or they just like to eat all day (unlike them).....I swear within an hour after eating their meals today....came the famous old saying "I want something else, Mama!"....over and over until I finally found them something healthy to eat.....I want to know where they are putting all this food......This morning they each had a big bowl of cereal with Milk and then like 2 hours later they had a bowl of oatmeal and then after nap they each had 1/2 a Jelly Sandwich, 2 big pieces of cheese, 2 whole bananas (yes they both had 2 bananas each, INSANE!).....then literally about and hour or so later they wanted me to make them dinner...which was hot dogs, chips and peaches.....and 2 hours after dinner Kiara still wanted something else....I finally had to tell her that she had eaten plenty of food today....and she was like "OK Mommy".....So like I said I think they are both going to sprout up soon....I guess I should be happy that they are clearing out the cupboards and the fridge...

Tonight I watched my nephew Kieren, while his parents went to a Mariners game...it was fun and so good to spend some quality time with him before I leave on Friday......He was really good and the girls were really helpful giving him toys and playing with him on the floor....they sure do love their cousin...Shawn was out playing poker tonight with the boys.....rumor has it he did win any money...BOO!..... Well its late and I better finish going through my clothes....UGH!

Sounds like Joe & Victoria were at a pretty exciting game last night. Seattle wins 8-7 in 12 innings...go Mariners!

We finished clearing space in the bedroom, basement & garage. There's lots of room for your stuff now. See you all tomorrow!

Blame "Longball" Johnson and his flush on my not bringing home the gambling bacon last night!
