Not Me! Monday

We did not make our upcoming job transfer final this week by adding a "for sale" sign to our front lawn.  {For those of you who haven't heard, we received a great job opportunity in Huntsville and will be the by mid-July!  Though it is bittersweet to leave our family and friends here, we're very excited about the opportunity, but a little overwhelmed with all of the details that are yet to be worked out.}

In light of the above announcement, I have not been working endlessly to get and keep a sparkling clean house {for showing purposes}.  For those of you with young kids, I'm sure you understand the impossilbity of this task - - one step forward 10 steps back!  I will not be sad when this "selling the house" part is complete and life can be a little more manageble.

God never ceases to amaze me with His perfect timing!  This morning, Mark did not read the following quote, which was a great encouragement for both of us!  "What seems like the right thing to do could also be the hardest thing you have ever done in your life.  It's always worth it." ~Unknown

With Mother's Day coming up this next Sunday {while the kids and I will be visiting my family}, Mark did not decide to surprise me with my gift a little early.  He was sneaky this year!  He saw me unintentionally "eye-ing" this beautiful jewelry armoire, and decided it was the perfect surprise from him and the kids...I couldn't agree more!  Isn't it gorgeous??
I have not decided that my children have a conspiracy against me and productivity!  Why is it that they argue and fight all day long except when it is time to go to naptime or bedtime???

I do not have two watermelon-aholics!  See??  (And it's not even TIME for watermelons!)
