A Wordy Wednesday!

I seriously missed doing Wordless Wednesday today now that I've looked at all of yours. I think I'll post some pics tomorrow - I'd have to get up now and get the card out of the camera and well I'm just too tired. I took a 2 1/2 hour nap today and I'll probably still be in bed by 10. I don't remember being this wiped out with my last pregnancy but at least my wonderful hubs is home to get our son up from his nap so I can sleep longer!!!

In the last two days I've cleaned out two hall closets and made a pile to bring to my MIL's garage sale next weekend. I went through a lot of stuff and got ahead on vacuuming, mopping and bathroom cleaning.

Wondering why I'm doing all this? We are getting ready to put our house on the market and I want to make it easy to "put stuff away" when we have a showing. We are going to buy something with more land probably in a neighboring town. This will mean a longer commute for my hubby but we both have wanted more land since we moved to Idaho and we don't know what we've been waiting for. Both of us want to be able to have horses, chickens, fruit trees, (much) larger gardens and just not to be looking out our kitchen window into the neighbor’s window 15 feet away. We probably wouldn't do all that stuff right away but just to have the option to grow enough peaches to can instead of having to buy them first sounds amazing. I love to garden if you haven't guessed.

If you’re still with me, here's where you'll really think I'm crazy! We moved to Idaho when I was 8 weeks pregnant with our son, and then when he was 13 months old we moved into our current house and rented out the other. I guess we are going to make a habit out of this moving while pregnant thing...hopefully one last time for the moving thing but not necessarily the pregnant part I hope!

Thanks for all of your comments on volunteering, I really, really want to do it somewhere but I'm seriously not sure if I actually have the time right now. Eventually the nursing home or something like that sounds doable (is that really a word?) ah, off to bed for me!

I just found out this year that I like peaches (fresh not canned). I never liked fresh peaches because I always got them from the store and they're always hard. This year someone gave us fresh ones from their farm...OOohhh man, were they good! They were soft and soooooo so soooooo sweet! I need more now, and I don't know where to find them!!!!!!

I with you. I want space an animals and gardens. So far we just have space, but we are working on it. :)

We also have a habit of major change around our babies. We have moved or changed jobs or both with all four. guess you might as well get all the change out before settling in!

Me and my husband have moved 3 times. All 3 times I was either pregnant or had just had a baby. Why is that? I guess we feel we need more room with each kid :)

I found you thru adventures in babywearing. Congrats on the new baby!

I was very tired early in my pregnancy too. It was not uncommon for me to come home from work and sleep for 2 hours, then be up for 2 or 3, and go right back to bed!
It's hard work growing babies!! :)

janice said...

yes - while you are pregnant and trying to move is not a good time to start volunteering. Take care of yourself right now. :)

so great that your hubby is so helpful!

I would love to have space for animals. We went to the county fair last night and I remember my love for goats and chickens and such.

I am so jealous!

Totally off subject comment here... I love your title "Butterfly Mama" it suits you well. However, we use firefox tab browsing and I just realized everytime I come to your site the tab simply says..."Butt" Thought you might appreciate that!

Ashlee- Too funny! I wonder why that happens - maybe someday when I get better at this I'll be able to fix it, but for now I guess you get "butt" !
