What's Up

TOMORROW, another person will sign a stack of papers and officially own our Omaha home. Crazy.

I had no idea how emotional I would be last weekend as I spent a couple of hours cleaning out the last of our belongings and shutting the door, with our garage door openers and keys inside. Good-bye house, I told it. I really do hope he'll be happy there, we were. And even when times were really rough, it was a great house to come home to.

That being said, I have been really getting into making our new house our HOME. I've been looking at plant stands on line, wall hangings, side for light fixtures, and thinking about paint colors. I even bought a coat hook that you screw into the wall to replace our current situation of those stick on hooks that currently hold the kids' stuff.

With spring approaching, I find that we're making all sorts of plans. To see family, to visit with friends, to travel. I feel a weight lifting and it's fantastic.

Speaking of weight, I've also been busy trying to prepare and eat super healthy (and delicious) meals in an effort to shed what I still think of as the baby weight. My baby turns five in April...IT'S TIME. Have been getting more physical activity, eating less, throwing more fruits and veggies into the picture. It feels so great.

That's the run down. Nothing new here. But really, so much NEW. Our lives are so completely different than they were one year ago today. All good things.

All good things.

Congrats! I've gotten emotional with each of our home sales...excited but at the last minute, a bit sad thinking about all the special memories that took place in those homes.

On the other hand, you have many great memories to make in your NEW home!

I was so emotional when we sold our last home--our first home. It was hard to be excited to leave, yet torn completely in two.

You sound so happy! I find that once we turn the corner on winter I feel that fog lifting and I start to anticipate all the good things to come.

As bad as I would love to move, for the reasons you mentioned I know how hard it would be!

Share some of your dinner ideas please! I am always looking for ways to eat more healthy and get more fruits & veggies into the kids.

Yes, PLEASE share dinner ideas. Mine is 16 months and I'm still working on shedding that baby weight. Everyone said it would take a year. Uh, well it's been over a year, ha!
