And then there's this whiney girl in me that misses his help. Working full time AND doing everything around the house got exhausting this week. I truly have SO much respect for single mothers. I don't know how they do it! When Liliana's at her best, it's not tough. But this week she got sick for a couple days. She had a fever that lasted momentarily, but then she got a bunch of ulcers in her throat poor darling. This obvioulsy made her really fussy. THAT was when I realized how helpful it is to have a husband that helps me SO much.
When I say that he helps more than I've ever seen, I mean that. I've had SO SO SO many women tell me that they've never seen a father as helpful and involved as Evan (this includes my sister-in-law, Mom, AND Mother-in-law). Every woman sees Evan going grocery shopping with her, or to the restroom to change her diaper and they look at me in amazement like .... "how were you so lucky to get that?" Evan LOVES watching Liliana. He thinks it's a blast to change her diaper. And if she wakes up early on the weekend? He insists SOMEHOW that I've had a tough week and that he should get up and be with her. When she was a newborn, he got up MORE often in the middle of the night than I did. And, he NEVER ONCE complained. He did it, from the kindness of his heart. I am so thankful for that. I am so thankful to see the love he has for his little one.
To add to my stress this week is of course the fact that our house is on the market. Keeping a pristine home is TOUGH! I never realized how often I leave little things around the house, or how much of a pain it would be to put laundry and dishes away immediately in case I get a call that the house is going to show.
The additional stress? We're going to Little Rock this Thursday! Why? I have TWO job interviews!
Yes, that's GREAT news. But, I have to pack all my stuff, Liliana's stuff, arrange for the dog to go to the kennel, talk to the neighbors so they can turn the lamps on in our house every morning in case it shows, etc etc.
As for my interviews, I can't say too much about them, however ... hopefully I'll have some more news for you guys when I get back! We'll see...just wish me luck.
Through all this stress, I've just kept telling myself to relax, because guess what I'll be seeing on Saturday?
OUR NEW HOUSE! FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!
Want a couple pictures as a sneak peek?
LOVE my soon-to-be kitchen!
YAY for granite countertops, I won't have to worry about putting trivets under everything everyday now.
The view that sold me on the internet.
I LOVE open floor plans in houses. The living room, kitchen, AND an eating area all in one room.
I'm in love.
I'm so excited to decorate a new house (with the same stuff I have now, but still).
Yeah, seeing the house is going to be a BLAST. And hopefully my interviews will go well and BOTH lead to offers. And hopefully while we're there, the house here will sell!
P.S. I forgot to mention...my throat is super sore now. Sigh ... the joy of getting all your kids colds! ; )
P.P.S. Sorry I just wrote a post bitching about everything. I'm entitled to it ... I've been sleeping horribly without my sexy man wrapping his arms around me. BOO! haha.
