So sorry I’ve been MIA the last few weeks – life has been one giant blur of stress!!!!

As you may know we bought a house a few months ago – woo hoo!!!  That’s where the joy ended for a little while though. 

Then came the scarey time to sell our house.  Looking back, it wasn’t that bad really compared to what some people go through.  At the time though, I just wanted a giant hole in the earth to swallow me up.

As all mums out there would know, trying to keep a house clean and tidy with kids around is almost impossible.  Trying to keep the house looking like a showroom with 3 feral boys is just plain torture.
Then comes the fun part.  You know how it is, someone is coming, the house is a mess, so just pick everything up and throw it in a cupboard.  The trouble was I was doing that every second day for 4 weeks and I have absolutely no idea where I have hidden everything.  I did find a jar of pasta sauce in the blanket box the other day – hmmmmm.

Before we moved in we tried “fixing-up” the new house.  Painting inside and new carpets.  Doesn’t sound like much but when the quotes to paint are just plain stupid and your husband is a perfectionist when it comes to renovating, it seriously takes FOREVER!!!  I know I shouldn’t complain, he’s doing the entire house by himself, but that’s beside the point.  I want it!!!!

The biggest disaster of the entire move was Foxtel. As many of you know, I love my trash TV.  The trashier the better.  So to be faced with the prospect of losing hours and hours of recorded trash - well that was something I just couldn't bare to think about.   A quick phone call to Foxtel however confirmed that all would be okay.  The IQ box could safely move over with all my beloved shows - I wouldn't have to hole up somewhere for a month to watch 4 straight weeks of TV.  Yeah well, that worked didn't it....NOT.  I lost everything.  Argh - now I have no idea what's going on with Puberty Blues.  Is it even still on?  Thanks Foxtel.

In the meantime we are living in a complete whirl-wind of chaos that I am desperately trying to tread water through while telling myself it will all be worth it in the end.

Anyone else going through this at the moment?  How are you coping?
