Philly = Mars

We made it the 2700 miles across the country to Philadelphia. This week has been a big ass blur. My family and I have never had more "quality time"'s almost too much, if you know what I mean. We're holed up in a hotel room - granted it's a suite, but still. We've been spending lots of time in the (rental) car together. A sedan. With both kids in the back...right next to each other....we're they can actually reach each other. Dear God, please allow me to concentrate so I don't crash the car in the middle of this Philadelphia freeway.

If you have small children, you know that when the kids can reach over and smack the other with ease, it's bad news. Because that's ALL they do. I prefer my SUV, where the kids are far enough away that they have to at least throw their toys across the car to reach each other.

Anyway, so lots of time in the car - mostly driving around (desperately) searching for a house to call our own.

We found one today and, if we're lucky, we can move in this weekend. It was my husband's favorite house. It's beautiful. It's in an incredible neighborhood. It's 5,000 square feet.

Oh god.

Dude, I am so NOT cleaning this house. It would take me three days.

Hellllllllooooooooo housekeeper.

No, really. The house is beautiful - I will post some pictures once we get into it (and I find my camera's computer's packed somewhere).

Speaking of our's still in transit.....somewhere in the middle of the United States. We're not sure where. They're supposed to call us when they're an hour away. Nice, right? And we got a call yesterday from the car people that they "damaged" my husband's 2008 Lexus.

Awesome. Could be worse, I suppose. It's scheduled to get here sometime next week. I think.

I'll admit it, I'm a very lucky woman. My husband treats me very well and has been patient with my tears and anger swings - I've been trying to hold it together as best as I can, but sometimes it's all just a little too much to take in. I think that I'll wake up in my bed a month from now and wonder....

Where the HELL am I and how did I get here?

Note to self: find the nearest store where I can buy a case of red wine.

By the way, I'm thinking of new names (gimmicks) for my blog. Boobs and Bonnets was suggested by a Twitter friend....what do you think?

Boobs and! I like it!

Glad you're all there safely and I look forward to some photos. It's weird to think you're east of me now and not west.

I miss you! Glad to her you've found the house. Dane sent me the link, it looks SWEET! You will definitely need that cleaner. ;-) How the hell could they damage the car??? I thought it was on a trailer.

I can't wait to hear and see the house. Sorry your stuck in a hotel. Hoping its not too much longer. Check the PA rules about liquor/beer. I know something is strange that you certain ones aren't open on certain days (sunday's I think). Maybe I should of mentioned that before the move..LMAO

SO GLAD to hear you are there and found a house that you can move in to so quickly!!!! Miss you much xoxo

Nicole said...

Holy house!! 5000 sq feet??? Girl, what the hell were you guys thinking?! I cant wait to see pictures and hear all about Philly life once you're all settled in.

Hmmm, a new title huh? Thats a tough one. I'm gonna need some time.
