Passion, faith and the ability to continue to put one foot in front of the other and keep on going even on the days I just want to sit on the couch and eat ridiculous amounts of chocolate and watch Netflix.
Today was the first day of school. Woke up at 5am and the cute first day of school pictures had already started to flood onto facebook. I planned on taking the first day of school pictures too but as the morning continued so did Noah’s anxiety. The first day, the first time of anything is brutal for him so we went from trying to part his hair and combing it to the side too just being relieved we was finally able to get his braces and shoes on his feet and his pant weren’t on backwards (happens more than I care to admit) ! By 6:50 I was nearly dragging him to the car , realizing after driving to the corner I forgot my work bag. So no cute pictures, not this year. I used to be really hard on myself about things like this but in the end I kissed him goodbye for the day, said a little prayer, patted myself on the back and headed for work. WE DID IT !!
No work on the house tonight. The washer is still sitting on my front porch so we were laundry mat bound. Laundry mats are full of noises that are that are not ” Noah friendly ” so the race was on to get the laundry into the machine and out as fast as I could with the lure of ice cream to inspire Noah to maintain . Three meltdowns, both of us covered with purple unicorn ice cream and 2 hours later we finally made it home. We wont discuss the showwe incident as I’m still a bit frustrated from that. In the end Noah’s clean, sound to sleep in bed and WE DID IT !
Living Big in our tiny house
I wanted to share a few before and after pictures. Now keep in mind we have only been here for a month and this will to will change !!
Here’s a picture of the “living room” , Jay had moved most of his stuff out so you’ll get a better sense of the size of the space.
