We got home from the hospital late Monday night.  Braxton had his catheter pulled out Monday morning, and we WAITED. ALL. DAY. to see the doctor and get discharged.  Since coming home, Braxton has been doing great, and even his pain while stooling seems to be getting better.  Yay!

Things are crazy around the house.  I feel like I still need to get the house caught up from me being gone for a week.  But I haven't been home for more than an hour, it seems, without having to go run some errand.  On top of that, I need to be getting our house ready to rent.  That means clearing out clutter, painting baseboards, spackling walls, etc.  Oh yeah, and I need to pack up the house.

Things are moving really fast on the house purchase.  We had the inspection this week, and we close in three weeks.

Here is a picture I snapped really fast the other day during inspection.

As you can landscaping.  It sits on an acre that is completely un-finished.  We have our work cut out for us!  But the inside is really nice.  The house is about 3700 square feet, 6 bedrooms, a finished basement that includes a big play room and a media room.  There is a large office right off the kitchen that is perfect for a school room.  It is going to be a great family home - and most important; it is on a cul-de-sac, so the kids can play out front without me worrying about traffic.

Today I got a few boxes packed, and Brian moved them to the garage along with two book shelves.  I also took kid's clothes to the consignment store and made a few bucks, then quickly spent a few more.

Tomorrow is field trip day, along with as many other odd jobs as I can fit in.
