Scary stuff going on around here

We are moving. To Michigan. Most everyone I know already knows this fact and are very happy for us. We're happy for us. But I'm am scared shitless. Please don't tell Logan that I just swore.

I officially turned in my resignation before spring break. Such a short signature with huge implications. I always said that I would not quit a job without having another already lined up. Except there isn't a new job and there may not be a new job. My fingers are crossed. And my toes. Should I cross my eyes too? Over the break I turned in 32 applications across the West Michigan area. Even though it seems like a lot, my expectations aren't high when I know that others in the area have been looking for a job for over a year. My backup plan? Stay at home and bow down to his majesty Logan. If only I could be paid to do his bidding.

So, the house is almost sold, just waiting on our dear old friends The Bank, the applications are sent in, and we have a plan of leaving in June. Let's hope it works out!

It's finished!

As I may have mentioned before, I am a procrastinator. No need to stay anonymous, I will easily and proudly admit to it. In fact, some of my best work has happened when I procrastinated and finished projects at the last minute. May I just mention my 3.79 GPA in college? Pure procrastination. 4.0 for my masters? Procrastination at it's best.

Anyway, I am here to finally say that Logan's scrapbook is finished! That is, the scrapbook documenting my pregnancy up to his birth. In a perfect world it would have been finished right after he was born. In Rachel's world, the one where I am a teacher, a mom, and a super wife, it's finished when he's 13 months old. But it's done. That's all that matters. And it's pretty amazing if I do say so myself. If you'd like to see it, you must come and visit.

In other news...L man is walking, getting into trouble, and throwing fits. I thought we were supposed to have terrible two's, not terrible ones, or is this the new thing? Eh, he's still adorable.

Yes, I too have joined on the Jillian Michaels bandwagon and have started shredding. I started the 30 day shred last Friday and it kicked my butt. To the point that I almost couldn't walk up the stairs. It stayed that way all weekend. Today I finally motivated myself to do day 2 of the 30 day shred and it wasn't as bad at my first day. Don't get me wrong, I will be sore tomorrow, but it'll be worth it. I'm thinking that my 30 day shred may take a few more days that Jillian expects, but really, she's just in my TV, so she'll never know.
