Life continues to plod along slowly. We still haven’t found a house although we did manage to get pre approval for a mortgage. Big thanks to Kerrie Morris from Smartline Personal Mortgage Advisors. And a big BOOOOOO and thumbs down to Mortgage Choice in Charlestown who didn’t even want to give me the time of day on the phone. It was obviously too much work for them.
Miss M and Master N started preschool and I cannot say enough great things about their school. It is fantastic. The teacher even rang me yesterday because they’d noticed Miss M had been getting upset and anxious and not coping with transitions very well and was afraid to ask for help. They had all talked about it and come up with a plan on how to reassure her and help her. So so great. Even the fact they noticed was great. The fact they called me to talk about it and discuss how they were going to deal with it was even better! I’ve been very impressed from the moment I saw the school.
Preschool is a big positive in our lives
On the other hand, in a world first for me, I’ve deactivated my Facebook account. I am not feeling settled or happy here yet and seeing my old friends and my old life flooding my newsfeed everyday is doing my head in. So, sorry about the zero warning fb friends, but I need a break. Most likely I’ll post more on here now. Apparently I like talking about myself but don’t really want to hear about you . 😉 Kidding! I love seeing everyone and I’ll miss you ALL! But I need to focus on making a future here for a little while and stop seeing photographs of bald eagles and prairie dogs or the lovely weather in Fort Collins or reading about the new Foothills mall developments.
The twins had their MMR and a DTAP shots this morning. They’re all up to date now and don’t need anymore shots until high school. Yay! Here’s hoping for no febrile reactions.
Master N wears glasses for close up/indoors. He’s beyond adorable in them and has been fantastic about keeping them on and being careful with them.
Swimming lessons went well too. They went for 5 mornings in a row for 30 minutes each morning. They learned to blow bubbles. I learned they need A LOT more lessons! We’ll look at weekly lessons once we’re settled somewhere.
A lot of my days are spent with my cuddly girl, Miss I, attached to my lap. She’s stringing 3, 4 and sometimes more words together in sentences now and is soooo cute. She’s a sweet natured but head strong girl who loves her mama. This is us right now as I type this on my phone.
We’ll start the weaning from the dummy/paci soon, don’t worry.
