On Sunday, we officially moved into the new house.

It was a long process (or at least, it certainly felt that way to me), but we are settling in wonderfully.

Here’s some pictures of the last few days, since I’m far too exhausted for an overly wordy post:









Like I said, it’s been wonderful. There’s a lot of light in this house, I love how the colours turned out (I’ll do a virtual tour soon). The boys are enjoying their new room and their play room. Archer’s sleep difficulties were not magically solved though – he still gets up once a night, but he did sleep all night the first night!

Nolan is enjoying school…sorta. Morning drop offs are hard and getting harder…he just doesn’t want to part from Archer and I.




This morning was really hard – Nolan threw his first all out crying fit when it was time for him to go in and me to leave. So hard. I sorted out the bus thing and know where his stop is, but I think I’m going to wait until he’s more settled before I try and urge him on a bus? Maybe?

On the plus side…Matt is feeling better! He is back at work as of yesterday and loving it. He’s operating the forklift so he isn’t on his feet as much, but he comes home just as dirty as before. I told him not to get hurt anymore, then he went and crushed his pinky finger. Sigh.

Speaking of pain…my pain is not any better – but that’s no surprise there, I’ve been doing so much lately. Too much. Barely any time for a rest. But that’s ok! Now that the MASSIVE stress of moving is lifted, I’m in better spirits.


Oh…and also, I made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious. I could eat it all the time! Even the boys ate it with huge smiles on their faces. They didn’t even realize that there was chicken in it. Score! You can find the recipe here.

  1. Oh my gosh, that looks so good!

    I can’t believe Nolan is a kindergartner. Where did the time go?! Has it really been over five years since you and I “met”?!

    I’m sorry he’s having such a tough time. It will get better… it’s just not easy.

    Love the new house pictures so far! I can’t wait to see more!

      Yes, yes and yes! It was delicious, time is flying by fast (only, slow on nights like tonight…both have been up every half hour so far), and I hope the kindergarten school thing will get easier.

      Thanks love!

    Yay for the move! Looks great & I can’t wait to see the full tour! Also, it’s amazing Matt’s back at work, here’s to hoping your move brings on lots of positive change! Sorry to hear about your pain though, hopefully that pain specialist appointment comes quicker then not. In the meantime, baths, heat pad, muscle relaxants…not a lot of help but maybe a bit of relief!

    Also, too bad N’s been upset when you leave him at school. I was thinking, the bus may be so new and exciting that he is totally into it and instead of saying a sad good bye at the fence, you can pump him up for a super fun bus ride!!!! that helps him forget entirely about his separation anxiety. I have a few other suggestions I can offer (from working in the schools) so let me know if you’d like me to share! Good luck!

      That’s what I was hoping, that the bus would be SO exciting. But it’s supposed to storm tomorrow so I am going to drive him and continue to build him up. Go ahead and offer suggestions. Any for the 2 year old that gets up a billion times at night??? Lol
