away

posted on: 1.26.2009

Right now I'm staying in a small mansion (but not that small). It's got 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a movie theater complete with 16 giant leather lazy boys and red curtains. A pool, hottub, home gym, all the toys you could imagine, steam showers (with an un-countable number of lazer like water faucets spraying at you in weird places)... oh, and we're in charge of 5 more kids!
The home might seem like a dream, and like we are the lucky ones to be able to stay here, despite the fact that we have 5 more kids to take care of. But, I'm already homesick. I really just want to be sitting on my couch in my 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house. I want our small bed and 1 faucet shower back. Really really bad.
5 more days.... just 5 more days

  6. It has it ups and it has its downs! But there is no place like home. So music makers is really fun and London got more into it than she does at dance class. You and Taters for sure need to come next Tues. My friend Angie also wants to meet you because London was wearing one of your clips. Angie is the one who does all those shows!!!!!

  7. I always wanted a big house until I baby sat in one. The cleaning alone would kill me. ...hope the 5 kids don't kill you! Keep Tate close and good luck!

  8. Chels, I had the craziest dream about you last night for some strange reason! The Dream was this...I ran into you in person at Costco and you were by yourself. I started telling you how darling Tate is and how lucky you are to be her mom....and then you said, "Oh Tate is my niece and Wyatt and I aren't married yet!" I kept saying "Nuh uh! Nuh uh! na uh! It was so sad! And I woke up SO confused for a minute! Weird and funny huh? I had to tell you! Glad it was just a dream!
