Children . . . .

I thought that I would jot something down today just because I wanted something new other than my Harry Potter post. This morning I was reading the comics and came across these two comic strips that made me chuckle b/c they are true.

Here's the first one.

I had to laugh at this one b/c this how Scott reacts to an injury. He's okay when someone else looks at it but either Matt or I look at it he gets all dramatic. All I have to do is try to look at it and he wigs. haha

Then here is the second one.

I think this is how most kids think about their mom's bags/purses. I know that Scott does. I'm always pulling something out of my purse and he always asks if there is anything else in there. haha

We all love our children and their own unique way of thinking and acting. They make life enjoyable even when there are times when we just want to lock them in their room for the rest of their life.

Harry Potter

So we saw Harry Potter 6 last night and it was AWESOME!! Scott saw a little bit of the beginning before he fell asleep in Matt's lap. :)

I didn't expect this one to be as funny as it was. Maybe it was b/c of all of the love potions that were being passed around. We didn't have to wait in a line, we bought our tickets and sat right down. Everyone in the theater tried to squeeze into the middle section for the best view and we all laughed at the same time at the right scenes.

I've always been a Harry Potter fan. I love the books and the movies. This movie showed a lot of the major scenes that will be important in the final book. But it is always hard to put everything from the book onto screen. So I give them credit for doing the best they could.

Can't wait for the last movie to come out!

Today was moving day and it went pretty well. We had like 6 guys show up and help us out. We weren't sure if we were able to get all that we had into a 10x10 storage unit, but we did and had room to spare! Now we are getting situated in my in-laws house. We can't put all of our clothes away until my mother-in-law gets home from San Diego. She has some clothes stored in the closet that Matt and I will share. We will also be sharing a bathroom with his sister who is living here while she is nursing school. That will be interesting, as much as I love her, she is a "spirited" person to live with. She currently has full domain of the bathroom that she will eventually need to relinquish half to us. We'll see how that goes. That is all for now, we are going to jump in the pool and cool off.

Moving . . . .

Moving is a very time consuming and frustrating thing to do. We have been weeding through a bunch of stuff and have condensed a lot. But somehow I'm still finding things that I had forgotten that I had. You'd think that packing up a 2 bedroom apartment would be easy. Right? Think again. Once I started stacking up the boxes and containers I realized that I don't have room! As I sit here and look at the mound of boxes to my right I realize how am I going to get the dining room table, that I sold, out the door! I'll have to figure something out by tomorrow night.

The mound of growing boxes and containers.
