Moving Is Crappy

So I'm just really bugged that we have to move out of our apartment. Our apartment management is remodeling our apartment, so we couldn't re-sign for the next two years which we fully intended on doing when we moved in. This will be our third move in less than two years! We're only moving across town, but it's totally annoying because we've actually acquired quite of bit of stuff and furniture, and Ryan is really busy with his hospital rotations which means I am doing all the moving myself. Every day this week I have stuffed my car at night, gone to work, gone to the gym, gone to my new apartment to unload my car and then gone home filled it back up again. It is not fun. One of the worst parts is that they are making us repaint our apartment back to white. This is stupid on multiple accounts; one, it looks better the way it is now and two, why are we painting walls they are remodeling? If they aren't re-doing the walls....why aren't they? The walls have 40 years worth of holes and dings in them.

Lets all just take a moment to appreciate all the hard work Ryan and I put into decorating and fixing this place up only to leave 10 months later.

Mildly Obsessed.

Anderson James King is the most precious, sweet, perfect little gift God could ever send. I am so happy for Wendy and Harley. I've always loved kids and babies, especially my friend's kids and babies....but now that it's my sister's baby, my heart feels like it will burst with love and happiness and I want to cry with joy when I think about him. Is that normal? I'm almost afraid of how much I will love my own children. I'm so happy I was able to meet him at only a day old! Ryan and I went straight from the airport to the hospital on the way home from Mexico.

I definitely didn't get enough of him that night, so I headed back up to DC last weekend for some more quality time with my new little buddy.
Anders has no idea what a great Aunt he scored. I'm going to the best Aunt ever. I can hardly wait to see him again. Right now, we're thinking Wendy will come down with him in three weeks for Memorial Day. Until then....I love you Anders!
