Todd's folks headed back to North Dakota. We cancelled the movers. The rental truck went back. We called off our volunteers.
The entire house is boxed up, which would be a good thing if we were indeed moving. So, now, we begin to unpack boxes (((another sigh))) so that we can live in the rental house another week. I can't stomach another fast food meal. I took the little kids to Aldi to get some groceries. I made tacos for lunch and supper is in the crock pot.
Supposedly, we'll be closing "for sure" on Wednesday. Todd had to cancel his trip for work so that we can sign papers. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the moving company to fit us in on Thursday or Friday. Hopefully, we'll be able to rally our awesome friends to help us out.
And, did I mention, that Madeline is being Confirmed at the Basilica on Sunday? I was really hoping to be settled in the new house so that we could have a nice dinner afterwards. Looks like we'll be dining out and ordering a cake....I guess that's not so bad, huh?
Here's a peek at the disaster zone we're living in for the next week or so.

As much as these past few weeks have been frustrating to me and my family, we still have each other. Go give your hubby a smooch...hug your teens....snuggle your toddlers...rock your babies...it's all such a gift. We must not take life for granted.
