Purging, weekend plans, and so on…

Oh, I am up way too early and don’t wish to be! I was woken up by my 4 year old’s coughing fit at 2:15 in the morning and just haven’t been able to go back to sleep. Hopefully my sleeping schedule irons out a bit. I’ve been lacking sleep lately since everyone in the house has been sick It’s now nearing 5 a.m. my time so I’m not really seeing the point in going back to sleep.

At the start of the new year, we’ve been shifting our focus on preparing to move. For a while, I’ve been trying to purge the house of unnecessary items and have realized I’ve done a pretty decent job of it in the basement. With our tax return, we’d like to get some new living room furniture because our current couch is so badly broken down. So things like that can’t be replaced for a little bit yet. In the meantime, I should really shift my focus to the closet in my husband and I’s bedroom.

So far we’ve found one house that we are interested in. We would be downsizing a bit, but it’s a newer home and it’s in the price range we need to be in for rent. It’s also not as close as we’d like to be to my husband’s work, but we can sacrifice mileage a little bit for the right home. Other than that, we haven’t seen anything in our ideal location, but we will keep looking. We’re continuing to pray and give this matter to the Lord. He will open up the doors to the right opportunity.

Today we’re planning on going on a shopping trip and taking the kids to a children’s museum to get out of the house for a while. I’d like to hit some stores we don’t have in the town we live in. All of the kids need tops in the next size up since they are growing like weeds. I’m sure the kids will have a blast today. Maybe not so much on the shopping part, but at least we’re all getting out of the house. It’s also been a while since we’ve had a family day.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Don’t forget to enter my current giveaway!
