Sept 11

I was half way through today day when I realized what day it was... I was actually at Wal Mart filling out a check, when I got to the date line- and thought about it.
I actually used to have a bank slip from Sept 11, 2001, kept it for awhile, must have lost it during our second move. That morning I actually slept in, when my mother called me to tell me I was blow drying my hair to go out and run errands; yes I cried. Quite a few times that week actually. I'm sure we all did. I have a nephew who was born on 9/11/01. Where were you?

Saying Goodbye

Yes, we have moved (mostly, we left some furniture behind to stage the house, and we have plenty of boxes in the garage) I will miss my house. Mostly I will miss living in Teton Valley. I lived in Teton Valley when I fell in love, when I married (my first kiss), when I had my first three children, holidays and memories, family and friends. In April or May I just knew it was time to move- Ty had been working out in the IF/Rexburg/St.Anthony areas for two years, I want more time with my husband. Most of my family has moved out of "the Valley" so now we get to spend more time with them, plus we live close enough to the school that my girls can walk, and everything down here has a smaller price tag attached. The things I will miss? My jetted tub; which is kind of funny because I rarely used it, my girls bedroom (over top of and the entire length of our three car garage)- but not cleaning it, my garage, and just the house in general- but the pro's far outweigh the con's. Our house has been bought by an investor, who is looking to re-sell it so if your interested.... In the mean time, goodbye my lovely home- we loved you!!

Okay, seriously, what do I do?!?! Candra, the younger of my two girls is going to make me crazy. She loves to feel sorry for herself; I will give you an example of what happened just minutes ago- this kind of thing is a very regular occurance: She was in here eating a peach, everything just fine, she finishes with the peach and within a couple of minutes says, just once, that she is cold; I say (because it is almost bed-time) "well, go put your pajamas on and I will make you some hot chocolate, okay?" with in 15 seconds she is standing in her bedroom wearing nothing but her underware staring at herself in the mirror and crying- loudly saying over and over that she was cold... (I should mention here that her mirror is attached to her dresser, so she was also standing in front of her dresser, and yes she has LOTS of clean PJ's in there) I suppose she feels put upon because I asked her to put on her pajamas before I gave her the hot chocolate? I really don't know- but this watching herself cry in the mirror thing drives me nutty!!! She does it at least 1-2 times a week! I have even seen her go and get the hand held mirror so that she can watch herself cry... HeLP!!! Tonight I was nOT patient, I told her that if she was cold she should put her PJ's on and stop watching herself cry... I know, not patient, HElP!!! What do I do?
