So this is our last week in the old condo. Running wise I managed four miles before work on Saturday and now realize that will be my last time running for quite a while. I am consumed with bubble wrap, boxes and packing tape. None of which I really enjoy right now. I hate packing!!!!!!!!! Wait, let me clarify, I like packing for a TRIP or a VACATION but packing for a move? No thank you!!!

So I will probably be outta the blogging loop this week because my days are filled with working while my nights are consumed with packing, watching the Peanut and keeping the Peanut out of the bubble wrap while I pack. She has become infatuated with PERMANENT markers lately. She has a lovely supply of Crayola washable markers but nooooooooooooooo she wants to play with mommy and daddy's permanent ones while we pack. Ugh.

So because of my lamo blogging of late, I leave you with a few photos that have highlighted my week!

Most of you probably don't know this, but I am like a Jamaican bobsledder (ahem, an old SNL skit) in that I have many jobs. Actually, I have one full-time job that is Monday to Friday and then I work two part-time ones. One of which is for the Maloof Entertainment/Sacramento KINGS family. This past weekend when I showed up for work I had a gift sitting in my chair!

10 Years of Service!

Apparently I have been working for the KINGS and the Maloofs for 10 years this past summer. My initial thought was "holy crap has it been 10 years!?" but they presented me with a 10 year service pin, an award and then a really nice gift that I get to pick out of a catalog. Sweet. Thank you Maloof Family! It has been a great 10 years!

Then, Vans has been spending a lot of time at the new house working on the Peanut's room and checking on our slightly lazy tile guy.

The Peanut, when asked, "what color do you want your new room" she declared "green and purple" which actually works. So Vans has been busy painting. He decided not go with the shades of green and purple that I picked and instead went with something he liked . . . we'll see, right now I am not loving it.

Peanut's Room
He's doing a white chair rail where the line is.

Overall not too terrible I guess. We'll see how it looks with furniture and some decorative things on the wall. Besides, in about 8 years she'll want it another color! HA

And finally, the thorn in our side, the reason we've pushed back the move and will most likely push back any housewarming parties I wanted to have . . . the master bath re-do:
Laying tile takes FOREVER

It really takes forever when your tile guy SUCKS. So much for using a referral. Ugh. It looks as if we won't be able to use our master bath OR bedroom when we move in this Friday. Vans and I will be camped out on the floor the guest room but whatever, at least we'll finally be in the new home and can start making things feel homey one box at a time.


  1. Funny, we are changing the theme in Emma's room to purple too. Can't wait to see the finished product in the Peanut's room.

    Good luck with the move!

  2. Good luck with the move! i've done it 9 times in the last 12 years, so trust me, I feel your pain:)
