A Laborious Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day to everyone.   I'm sure the holiday name doesn't imply that you have to labor but that's what we did today.   We were all up by 7:30 and my plan was just to clean the house.  The kid rooms were a little messy upon my return from Utah. (Trip details and more pictures will be coming in another post.)   I was mainly concerned with getting the toy room cleaned up so I could use the treadmill, which I haven't done yet.  And the floor in Megan and Mattey's room was no where to be seen.   When are they going to be able to keep their room clean?  Probably never.

The girls were fighting today as usual. Mickey and I talked about how something needed to be done.  We think they need their own space away from each other.  So I went on line and started looking for houses.  Sadly that's the second thing we would have to do to get a bigger house.  We have to put ours on the market first.  If anyone needs or knows of someone who needs a cozy, well taken care of house let us know.  We are nervous about the selling and buying process.  That would probably explain why we've been here for 12 years.  I'm sure it will happen soon enough.  For right now we decided to split up the girls.  We were going to put Mat back in her old room, now Kade's, but she didn't want to be in the blue and green room even though it's the same colors as when she lived in it.  Go figure.  So Meg moved into Kade's room and Kade will try to sleep in the bottom bunk while Mattey sleeps on the top in the girly room.

We were trying to get this stuff done so Mickey could help his parents move things around their house today.  Then Darrin calls and asks if we still wanted to move refrigerator out of the garage.  We said "Yes!".  He had the dolly from work and had to return it today.  So he came over but this project required even more labor.  The spot in the laundry room where we wanted to put it had a lot of, for lack of a better word, valuable crap stored.  So all that had to be hauled out to the toy room and then later most of it made it back into the laundry room.  We really need more square footage.

At the end of the day almost everything has been given a new home.  There are a few things that can get taken care of tomorrow.  There are a few pictures of our hectic day on flickr.

Nice post Sweetheart! All I had to do was take a quick glance at it and I can remember clearly why my back is sore today. :-)
