Fragmented and Scattered on Moving Day

Did you expect to see me dancing today? We are taking a little break from Just Dance Yer Bloggy Off. And that means that I can participate in Friday Fragments again!
Mommy's Idea


We are moving out of the beach house today. Oh, how I'll miss the view and being right on the water. I'm trading the beach for close Target-proximity and a better library.  Not exactly a fair trade.  But, at least it's something.


I hate packing. Though, unpacking is even worse.


Is it wrong that I'm still going to be checking blogs and emails today when I should be helping to load the truck? But, seriously, it's not like I can actually carry much. Total wimp=get out of packing free card. But, if I'm not around much today, you'll know Hubs found me out.


I can't believe it will be May tomorrow. I love the warm weather. Spring and summer are such happy times.


Though, my boys all like to run around naked or just in underwear/diapers and the warm weather only encourages this. Is this is a boy thing or just a kid thing? I don't remember going through a naked phase.

My boys wanted to go streaking across the beach the other day. Um, it's not that kind of a beach.


When I said yesterday that frump was keeping me from feeling Mom Sexy, I didn't mean that I was going to dress up all the time. I have to be practical. I just meant that I was going to try to keep the clothes that have stains and tears on them as outfits for days when I don't leave the house. Never said anything against jeans. Especially a great-fitting pair- that's practically cussing around here to try to ban jeans.
Could you please go vote for Mason in the Baby Idol contest? Tomorrow is the last day in this round and then we find out if he made it to the finals next week. You can vote once per day, no registration required HERE  They let you vote once per computer every 24 hours,  so if you voted yesterday, you can vote again today after when you voted yesterday. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!

How can you resist that little face?



Blogger Rebecca said...

You're hardly a wimp.

I love how you justified (or tried to justify) leaving the beach with a swap for Target/library...gotta find a silver lining, right?

I don't remember a naked phase either, but I'm pretty sure we'll have one around here...or two!

Probably a guy thing (the nudity) LOL

Hope your move goes smoothly and you guys have a lot of help! I wish I could be there to help with the kiddos!

Wait. Your new place is closer to Target?

Well, hell.

At least you'll still be within a stone's throw to the ocean! Target-proximity is definitely a consideration.

I think there's something wrong with me, because I love packing and unpacking. It's the only time when everything has a place :)

Blogger Stacey @ Chasing Cloud 9 said...

Moving bites! We just had a big move 6 months ago, and I had to pack 85% by myself...so I felt no shame in letting the men load the truck without me ;) I agree, Target would be the plus side for me!

Good luck!

Or do you not just point and direct like I do when you move?

I am glad to see you are looking at the positive. Sorry to hear you are losing the beach view.

Isn't it cute when they run around naked.

Popping by from SITS.

i love target...
and i love being the wimpy one who can't carry stuff
but unlike you i love packing and unpacking! seriously
it is the best time to purge and i get to organize and ooooo i just love it! as long as i have plenty of time and don't procrastinate of course!
and unpacking! love it! i love finding everything's place!

good luck with the rest of your moving day

Packing is not a fun thing, but the fun side is that you can find things you never knew where they were. And get rid of things you never see or need. Hmmm, trading Target for beachside. That is a tough one. At least you'll still be close to the beach.

Good luck with the rest of the move and I voted for that sweet face again! I'm sure he's going onto round 2!

It's usually little girls that are the streakers. My boys keep their clothes on (for the most part).

Unpacking does suck!!

I voted.
I could NEVER give up jeans. That is very bad talk around here. I could not wear make up everyday, either. Maybe someday I will get back to that, but for right now I can live without it. If people don't like it, just don't look at me. I am fine with that. :-)

Oh...sad bye, bye beach! Mason rocks! I voted for him a bazillion times. I hope he wins!

Um, Target proximity absolutely played a role in the move to my current house. Husband wanted remote, middle-of-nowhere-miles-from-a-Target property. I put my foot down immediately!

Good luck with the move!

Oh Shell, his little face kills me. He's so freakin' cute!!
Good luck with the move. I'd rather live by a Target than on the beach any day. Yeah, sure. :)
Hope Hubs doesn't find you out. LOL!

Mason is a doll baby.. My boys have that run naked streak lol Ha something about a boy has it ingrained in them.. I am not sure many of them outgrow it lol. I have never been inside a Target. Not once. I know I know ...

I'm still unpacking boxes from our move. It totally sucks! Yay for being closer to Target! But it does suck to leave the beach...

We have moved a bunch and two of those moves I was pregnant, it is the automatic get out of helping card :)

And it isn't just a boy thing.. my daughter very much likes to run around naked.

My boys run around naked. My five year old is getting past it, but I am hard pressed to keep clothes on my two year old. Lol! And unpacking is way worse than packing. ;D

I am with you...moving and packing sucks! Target is definitely a plus but losing the beach stinks for your boys. I do think boys are little streakers...b/c Will loves to be naked!

Good Luck with the move...hope all goes smoothly for you!

My little sister was a naked baby. When she was 3 she went through a phase where she would dart out of the house butt naked and run around our neighborhood. Not fun! Good luck with moving. I hate unpacking, too! Definitely the worst! :)

Yep, the nudie thing is definitely a boy thang! My boys are pantless all winter long...BRRRRRRR.

Blogger Michelle Pixie said...

Good luck with the move! I think since you will probably have to do a majority of the unpacking you shouldn't have load boxes too. Seems fair to me! ;-)

My girls keep their clothes on and are pretty modest. So maybe it's a boy thing?

I think all boys like to run around naked. In fact, I discovered that the more clothes I took off my son when he was an infant, the happier he became! What a nut! Good luck on your move!

I've noticed that boys are worse than girls when it comes to liking to be naked. But, when Kenna was little she loved to wear just a diaper and a t-shirt. She was always hot.

Um...beach house for closer Target proximity does not add up in my book. Not even with the better library! :D

Blogger Ma What's 4 dinner said...

Definitely a boy thing. They're always naked, though I don't have girls so really, who knows?

I love that you came to my SITS day on your moving day. You know how much I love you???????

Good luck, I'm thinking of you moving. If you need help unpacking, uh, call me??? I'll think of something.

The nudity thing is not just for boys. Mo was the most naked kid I'd ever seen, as soon as she hit the front door all her clothes came off. Her dad and I just hoped you would outgrow it before she was 16. Around 10 she got modest, now that she is sixteen she is once again stripping as soon as she hits the front door. I'm just glad thongs are not her panty of choice!

Oh moving...dreaded words..beach vs. Target..hmmm that's a hard one. Guess Target and the library win!

Jeans are wardrobe staples...I used to hate them but if someone told me I couldn't wear them...they better watch out...as long as their is no crack showing and they fit great...they are sexy!

I'll go vote....cutie!
