My brain is on overdrive these days. Relocating has a TON of perks (as in I will not have to pack so much as a SINGLE box), but it seems like there are a million hoops to jump through. I'm here, our realtor is in NW Iowa, our relocation specialist is in Arizona, our lender is in Wisconsin, and Nate, well, he's a nomad, currently bouncing around between budget hotels. Needless to say, getting papers signed can be a little challenging, and there are a LOT of papers. I cannot wait for all the t's to be crossed and the i's to be dotted. I've e-mailed more forms to more people in the last week than ever before in my life!

Macieo's hair was getting loooong. Like, he-wakes-up-with-matted-bedhead-and-refuses-to-let-me-touch-it-and-goes-to-school-looking-like-a-dirtball long. So I finally forced him into letting me cut it tonight (yes, I cut his hair). Before I buzzed it, I brushed out all the curls, and I burst out laughing because it reminded me of Diana Ross. He asked why I was laughing, and I told him it was because he had a cute afro. He wanted to know what an afro was. That made me laugh even harder.

Today, I threw the adult version of a tantrum after Macieo and the neighbor boys accidentally broke the door off my laundry room. A few weeks ago, they were wrestling, and snapped the legs off my coffee table. I have HAD IT with rowdy boys in my house, and cannot wait for warm weather so I can kick them out to play outside. I attempted to fix the door after they left, and that's when the tantrum happened. There was yelling. And tears. Macieo heard me yelling, came upstairs, and said, "Mom, do you need a hug." Sheesh. Talk about feeling like a major loser. I think I've had about enough of being the only adult in the house. Nate, if you read this, I need you to come home and fix the door :)

We are offically closing on our new house in our new town on February 4. That's only two and a half weeks away, which is crazy. The movers can't come here to pack us until February 14, so we'll have some time to kill in between. I'm hoping we can get some projects done on the new house during those ten days (like removing the mauve carpet and putting down a new floor). February should be an interesting month.

I made myself a promise that I was going to cook every night, even though it's just Macieo and me. So far, I've pretty much stuck to it. We've only gone out to eat twice since Nate started the new job. I guess there was that one night I called my mom and informed her we were coming over for dinner, but I don't think that counts. I'm realizing just how much Nate must eat, because I am ending up with more leftovers than I know what to do with.

Our house still hasn't sold. Seriously, we're practically giving the thing away! Please, someone, buy our house!!! If you know ANYONE who is in the market for a townhome in Ankeny, please tell them I want to be their friend :)

I am seriously addicted to my iPad. I'm not sure how I ever lived without it. I never knew how much I needed it in my life, but I do. I now waste 50% more time than ever before :)

I've been watching a lot more TV lately than usual, and have recently discovered I like the new CBS show "Blue Bloods." It's about a family of cops in New York, but it doesn't have any of the gory, graphic stuff that a lot of cop shows seem to have. I don't do well with blood, even if it's fake blood on TV. The icing on the cake is that Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg are in the show. Anytime Magnum P.I. and someone from New Kids on the Block team up, you know it's gotta be good :)

Welcome to a few moments inside the disjointed world that is my brain. Good night!
