Just like me to post and run huh?
We’ve been busy with Aunt/Godmomma Juli and Uncle Chad…
Sophia says: “Moooommm, Chad is going to kill you for posting a picture of him without his shirt on.”
So yes, we’re moving.Â We made the decision to put our house on the market at the end of April.Â We expected a long time on the market, as we had that experience last year when we tried to sell (and never did).Â However, this time around the fates had their hand.Â We listed and sold within two weeks leaving us with some big decisions.Â In the end family won out and we are headed to Rochester, NY.Â I grew up in the suburbs of Rochester but have not lived there for about hmmm, 14 years (wow! time flies).Â And have not lived there as a real adult (18 graduated from highschool does not count as a real adult).Â So, this is going to be an interesting experience.Â Going back, facing my youth, measuring myself against expectations set then.Â Fortunatley I am extraoridinarily lucky and happy with my place in life.Â However, there are ghosts in them there hills…albeit friendly ones.

When do we move?Â The movers come June 16th, the closing is the 18th.Â Yeah, this was the other kicker – a relatively short closing period.Â The buyers are relocating and starting a new job so they were inflexible on those date.Â Can’t say I blame them but kind of puts us in a weird place.Â Not one box has been packed and none will before my parents get here next Monday.Â I just don’t have the time or energy.Â Work is kicking my butt and Sophia isn’t sleeping great.Â My mom (who left a very sweet comment on my last post *hi mom*) and dad have been great – booking all of the necessary trucks, movers, storage, etc.Â We couldn’t have done this without them.
Where will we live?Â With my parents.Â Let that sink in.
US = two adults, one baby, two dogs, two cats.
Them = two adults, two dogs, one house.
They are crazy to allow us to do this and we are crazy for taking advantage of it.Â It will be one crazy fun mess and Sophia (the only one that really matters) is going to have a great time!Â And, honestly, so am I – I am desperate for some more hands around the house.Â This is a temporary measure to give us time to find jobs, find a house, and get back on our feet financially.Â I’m sure I’ll have some good stories….(*hi mom* *hi dad* love you. thanks).
Thanks to all of the ROCS that came out in the comments…. I need friends, apply within.Â No, I’m kidding.Â It is a freakin small ass world.Â Kate Gilbert left a comment that she was originally from the ROC.Â Further conversation ensued and she graduated the same year I did from a neighboring high school.Â Her roommate in college was a classmate of mine.Â So weird.Â So, I think I found a new friend for Sophia and a friend for me…although Kate and her little one only visit and actually live across the border.Â Kate, I swear I’m only a little crazy….and Sophia, she’s nice as can be!
Sophia says, “This woman is crazy, save me.”
The great thing about blogging is that I can keep all of my girls here at my fingertips.Â I was lamenting to them the other day that I actually am going to have the POST my exploits because I can’t just tell them about it all in person.Â Bah-humbug.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…Sophia turned 4 months old!Â I’m not sure what her weight is right now – her Drs appointment isn’t for another week and a half.Â She’s likely close around 11 lbs.Â She is awesome – starting to laugh, has rolled over a few times (front to back), and is a little cutie patootie We lub her.
Happy 4 month birthday my sweet love…time to start sleeping at night…lub you…
