Trying to be a morning person

Ok, after reading some other blogs I have been trying to get up earlier and get things done in the wee hours. I don't know how you guys do is killing me. I simply cannot function on any human level! I don't like my family or myself for that matter, I am at a loss how becoming a morning person will ever happen for me.
Cory just read my title over my shoulder and laughed and said "trying to be a morning person, you? never going to happen".
I hope somewhere, if someone is keeping score, that I get points for trying even if I fail. Don't get me wrong I haven't given up...yet. I will give it another month.

Almost Done

I cannot believe I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The house is just about ready to be shown. The concrete gets poured on Friday and then the gate goes in, and the final out door touch up is the stone. So we will go from a truly "desert" landscape (dirt and weeds) to a stone and desert plant landscape.
I have decided I am going to have an open house just to show friends and family all the changes we have made. I am so proud of Cory, he has become such a handy man. I love the way things have turned out and I will never do this again. If I want to make over a house again Cory has strick instructions to hit me over the head with a 2 by 4!
The girls are sooooo bored, and I know it is because we are always working on the house, but in a week or so we will be free to go to the mall and the pool and friend's houses and the park and the museum...well, you get what I mean.
Two posts in the same month...I am getting better at this.

Getting ready for the move.

Well it has been awhile since I updated the old blog, and I know I have to get into the habit soon. Only a few more months and we will be living in PA. I love the sun and will miss its warmth more than I can say. We are listing the house this week and hope to sell it quickly. We are pricing it 10,00.00 below market value in hopes that it will sell soon. Once we have a solid offer on our house we can put in an offer on a house in PA. Cory is very excited to quit work and just focus on school, he has been working and going to school for ever and deserves a break so he can just worry about school.
The boys are staying here and going to college here in the valley, Chris is going full time while Greg is going to do it parttime. Sometimes I wish they were both coming with us but I know Greg will be 20 years old in August and it is time mommy let him go and grow up on his own. Chris on the other hand has been a 40 year old man trapped in a young man's body for as long as I can remember so it is hard for me to think of him as young and helpless going to school with no mom or dad around to help. He doesn't need me anymore but I still need him.
The girls are excited about the move and see it as an adventure...just what we told them it was. Lets just hope it all stays positive and upbeat.
That is all for now.
