Aah, closing day is near. We had a change of plans and we are closing on both homes tomorrow. I'm very excited! We've been moving boxes by the truck-load into the garage of our new home for the last two days. (And by truck I mean my brother's Silverado and Jeremiah's pick-up, which is so small it's been mistaken for an ice cream scoop on wheels.) I got a key to the house from the neighbor last night and I'm very tempted to just go start moving in to the house today. But I should be packing up the last of things here so that we can just move furniture on Friday.
Things would go a lot faster here if I weren't so lazy and if Jack would cooperate and if Jeremiah hadn't busted up his knee playing the hero at a baseball game last week. He may have damaged his ACL - he has an MRI scheduled for this afternoon - and has a 15 lb. lifting restriction. So we're going to be that family in the ward asking everyone to move them. Don't you love that family?
Also, I couldn't sleep last night. Maybe I was just anticipating a sleepless night with Jack based on the two previous nights. Or maybe it was the Dr. Pepper I had with dinner around 8. But I got up with Jack at 2 this morning. He went right back to sleep, but I was awake until at least 5. Most of the time I spent laying in bed with arbitrary bits of random miscellanea running through my head. I did however get up and read a few pages in the latest (and last?) Harry Potter installment. (Not a wise selection, I've now decided, since they tend to be addictive and I certainly have no time for reading at the present.) When I can't sleep I have a sure-fire defense, I only have to ask Jeremiah to hold me and it's not long before I'm catching up on those z's. Since I know he hasn't been sleeping well because of said injury, I just waited for him to wake before asking him to hold me. Finally I got some sleep. Even Jack cooperated and slept until 8.
Now, on to packing, cleaning, laundry and wishing I had time to read that book!
