The reality is setting in. We are about to buy a house. Right before Christmas.
THIS WILL BE CHAOS!
We have trips planned around Thanksgiving. There is holiday shopping to be done. Packing and unpacking. Cleaning. Wrapping presents. Meal planning.
Two years ago this wouldn't have phased me but now I have Abby. Or, as I sometimes like to call her, Hurricane Abby.
On top of all the chaos, we only have one car. About a month (or two) back a drunk driver hit Dan's truck and totaled it. We didn't replace it because we were looking for a house.
So, it's hectic here and some days we're trapped inside. The craziness is wearing off on Abby, who for some reason now calls me 'Bob' or 'Bobby'. She refuses to say 'Mommy' and laughs every time I correct which leads me to believe that for some reason I remind her of a 'Bob'. See, I knew some day I would be paid back for calling my mom 'Vagina' instead of 'Virginia'. I'm sure she's laughing right now!
In addition to renaming me, Abby has been making the most of her days by acting like a loony bird.
She has even debuted a new facial expression which my sister informed me is a face that I make.
Great look, huh? I really hope that's not a face I make often! I also wish someone would have told me sooner so I could make a conscious effort to never make that face in public!
