The girls went to GoGo Camp today. She is taking all of the potty trained grandkids for a full 24 hours. They are going for pizza tonight and playing games and having a slumber party. Jax was a little bummed to not go, but I think it is good potty training incentive. We are going to have a day of fun packing and moving and taking beds apart. It should be a fun day:)

Here is Charlee.
Happy Fathers Day to the best Dad in the world.
Jaxson made him a m&m's bow tie.
We went to a party at the school. Paige came with us and the girls loved going down the water slide.

I am Still Alive!!

As my mom would say, "Stress, Stress, Wearing A Dress!" Totally not the words in the movie she is quoting, but none the less, describes my situation perfectly. I am almost packed up which is a relief, but I am not packed to leave for the beach on Sunday yet. It is so hot that I don't want to make the necessary runs out to the trailer in my front yard. I think that will be my goal for tomorrow and then move on Saturday and go to the Beach for a week on Sunday. Oh yeah, did I mention how 25 people were laid off at Brian's work today? Thank heavens that Brian was not one of them, but that not knowing feeling could have contributed to the not falling asleep last night until 3:00 am thing. I was woken up by Brian at 6:00 so he could shower. No, he does not wake me up to ask permission, but we had a worker coming to the house at 6:00 am and he did not want to miss the knock on the door. Wheewww!!
Yeah, so now you can understand why my blogging posts have taken a dip lately. Hopefully by next week, I will be posting from the beach while sipping a virgin Pina Colada:)

Our New House

We did it!! Finally we signed on our new house today. We are renting on the east side of the 17. It is a nice house. It is still in our ward (One big plus).It has a big family room and the kids are really excited about the backyard (Nothing special, but no coyotes run across it like our yard now). We got the keys today and the big move is next Saturday... Now if I could only get in the mood to pack...

Soooo Frustrating!!

I am packing, so my house is a disaster area. I hate moving. To top it off, yesterday, the realtor told us the owner of the rental we were going to move into decided to rent to a friend, not us. I am going out to look again today. Lets all hope I find something that does not suck:)

More House News

We looked at what I thought was a nice house a few days ago, but Brian was not completely sold. We found a really nice house... it was already rented. We found another beautiful house and while I was looking through, the realtor called our agent and yep... already rented. I looked at some crappy houses... and now we are signing up for the first one. It is a palace when next to the others for rent. It will be fun. I am so excited to move and move on. I feel like we have been in limbo for too long. Whoo Hoo!! Here is to moving on!!

Everyone wants to know where we are moving. We are staying in our new ward. This kind of limits the rental possibilities, but I am trying really hard to have a positive attitude about it. Now to find the right house to rent...

We're Moving!!

AAHHHHH! ok. Got that out of my system. The short sale offer on our house was approved this morning which means... We are moving! Within 30 days. yeah, Yikes. I am a little worried. I have a lot of stuff. I may have a "Come help Scottee pack up all her crap" party. It is kind of bitter sweet. The equation is:
Dream Home + Big House Payment= Stressed Out Husband
Little House Payment+ Nice Home (Not the one I designed)= Happy Husband
I don't know about you, but the second one is much better for me because...
Happy Husband= Happy Me!!

Thanks, Pam!!

Brian mentioned to our friend, Pam, that he missed her hot fudge at Christmas this year, so she brought him a jar and the recipe. He was so excited. (He would not admit it, though) So, Thanks, Pam. It is great. He is hording it in the back of the fridge:)

It is hard not to feel dorky when you tear up at the drop of a hat. I feel like I am on the verge of crying about half of the time. I am very happy, but I feel like if I cry and let it out, I will completely loose it. I want to cry when I see the temple or think about the eternal spectrum of life. I cry when I think that people are pregnant and having babies and I will never do that again. I am so happy and content with my 3 beautiful children as well as my 2 perfect angels, but when I think about eternity, I am so humbled. I hope I can be good enough to make it to be with my angels. I know I have a little cheerleading section in heaven rooting for me. When I think of eternity, I feel like every little decision I make now is so important... How I raise my children, How I show love to my Fabulous husband. How I befriend people and share the gospel. These things are so important to me. I only hope I can be good enough at them here on Earth to earn the blessings in Heaven. I miss being pregnant. I miss the dorky little pregnancy count down clicker on the side of my blog. I miss Journee and Trevee, but I have so many things to be happy about as well. The song "I should have been a cowboy" was on the radio and Oaklee asked, "Dad, why does that boy want to be a cowboy?" Jaxson was going down for a nap and told the babysitter, "I only get water in my bottle. The dentist said NO MORE MILK!!". Charlee read 3 books with me today and did 4 timed addition tests. She loves to learn and she loves when I praise her for being so smart. She gives the best hugs and kisses, too. Brian took care of me all week without question or eye rolling. He loves me and I love him. He is truly my best friend (BFF). I have so much that I am thankful for... The tears just remind me of these things sometimes. :)

Surgery Update

My surgery went good. It has been a rough couple of days, but thank heavens for good drugs. My friends told me that the first few days would be rough and they were not lying. I am feeling a little better tonight. The feeling of burning from the inside has subsided a little. I have 3 incisions instead of 2, so I look forward to my two week appointment to find out why. So, All is good around here:)

No Food

I think one of the worst parts of surgery for me is not being able to eat. I love food. I get very angry when I can not have any food. I am not allowed to eat for 8 hours before my surgery this evening. I report to the hospital at 4 and my surgery starts at 6 this evening. I had to stop eating at 10 this morning. I am nor hungry, but having someone tell me I CAN NOT eat, makes me miss food and water right now. I am trying to stay busy and not think about food. I am sure the surgery will go well. I am hoping to be home by 9 this evening. Wish me luck!!
