New house, new stress

Well, it has been much too long since I have actually done anything with this blog but I think I might just use it now. In the past 11 months or so since I have started it so much has happened. Most importantly however was the purchase of our first home! It has been a very exciting time for our family and yet a very exhausting time as well. We have been in the house for about 4 months now and I am still trying to get things organized. I never realized what a challenge setting up a house would be. I am excited to be able to have a house of my own and especially the idea of having the entire thing completely organized and then finally being able to have everything put in its place so I can decorate it to my hearts desire but that has been difficult trying to get my kids settled as well. Unfortunately the stress of the whole situation gets to me as well and I have been suffering a lot of migraine headaches and that puts the progress on hold a lot more then I would like but I can only do so much. Nate continues to work at night, but now his commute is lessened due to the move as well as a promotion moving him to an office in Utah County. All of this helps, but the process is still slower than I would prefer. With the holidays coming up I am feeling more motivation to get the house finished though so I can put my Christmas decorations up and Annie is very excited to help so she is wanting to get the house done as well. She is a very good cleaner so I am very grateful for her!
Anyway, I ought to get back to working on the house now...hopefully I will continue to update this more often as it is a nice outlet for my stress!
