We started packing last Saturday and have been steadily packing a box here or there ever since. I packed all of our books first, they are heavy. Whoever comes to help us load up the moving truck in a month (only 30 days, AHHH!) better be super strong. I also packed up all of our picture frames. It feels so weird without them, it makes my house feel kind of hollow. Weird. I wrote a note on the picture frame box demanding that it be a "TWO PERSON BOX, do NOT break". I would cry so hard if my frames broke. I love them. (And they are expensive!)
My thoughts and prayers are with our family in Utah. Deric's Grandpa Jones passed away last week. Its been something we knew would happen soon, but its still hard and sad. I didn't know G. Jones well, but he was always very kind and sweet, and a little bit sassy too. =) Deric and I don't have anymore grandpas. Well, I technically have a step-grandpa, but I like to call him "my Jack". He is awesome.
Bladen is all boy. He doesn't have many friends to play with at all. (One of the reasons why we are eager to move, hopefully more playmates for Bladen!) But when he does play with the one little girl that is here, it is just much more obvious to me that he is just a little boy. He likes all the regular things, cars, trains, airplanes, tunnels (he is obsessed with tunnels right now), and all of that. But he is much more intense with everything, if that makes sense. He isn't soft and gentle when he plays, he plays with VIGOR! I think that's a good way to describe it. Sometimes people make me feel bad about Bladen. He doesn't know how to share yet and he is emotional. (He is my son after all.) But he is a wonderful, perfectly normal little 2 year old boy.
Deric and I went through our box of cd's that we are still lugging around. I have a bunch that I haven't imported onto my iTunes yet. That's what I'm doing now. Frank Sinatra, Pure Disco, and Disney's Greatest Hits Volume 3, YES! I love all of my music choices.
I have really enjoyed Instagram and facebook when people put on "throwback thursday" pictures. I like seeing everyone's older photos of themselves, I think I want to start doing this.
It is March 28th, and it snowed again last night. It is supposed to snow for the next week still. I want nice weather! PA is so much more enjoyable when there is green everywhere and there are flowers blooming. RAIN! I would take rain! NO MORE SNOW. I'm getting close to tantrum throwing, fyi PA.
It feels like a chick flick kind of day. I'm currently watching The Notebook, but I wish I had Pearl Harbor. I love that movie. I'm not a huge chick flick kind of girl, but when I'm in the mood to watch them, I love them. But not too often.
Side note: Ryan Gosling is a babe.
