Has it almost been a month?

What? I just now saw that I haven't blogged in almost a month.  Well, we had our fourth child - a girl, cute and healthy.  I still don't have a laptop so I can't really upload pictures to this computer (my son's school computer that doesn't belong to us).  We are still in the process of moving our stuff out of our "old" house into our "new to us" rental.  Bleck.  We close in two days so we are mad dashing to get everything out and the house cleaned up.

I am running on a tad less sleep than I was.  I am grouchy and mostly to my poor husband who himself is tired.  But he has been wonderful and helpful.  I have always been grouchy when I lack sleep.  When I was 4 and wouldn't take naps my Grandma Carolyn used to call me Grouchin Gretchen and I hated it, but it was true and I guess it still is, but don't you dare call me that.  

I am trying to not be grouchy but it isn't working out so well.  I will keep working on it though.  Just thought I would touch base.  My place is a disaster and I can't fit into any of my clothes, but we are all healthy and that really is something amazing to be thankful for.

Hasta mañana - I'm going to see if I can find some chocolate in this house.



  1. Finally! Something for me to read since I have nothing better to do at night. :) Even though it doesn't seem like it, life will calm down soon. I will be praying for your closing to go smoothly...and for more sleep for you!

  2. Congratulations on the new little one and good luck with your move!

  3. I will say I think your timing was a bit off- selling house, having baby...but I'm sure Gods timing wasn't off at all! You will get back to normal soon. (whatever that is!) Can't wait to meet your baby girl. And I really can't believe she's that old already! My laptop is broken too, so I can relate- :( I'm using a rigged up computer from various parts we had around the house right now! At least we've got something, right?

  4. Congrats Gretchen! I can't wait to see your new little one:)


I love comments!
