I really hate moving...

You should see our new apartment...it is CRAZY right now! We had to downsize a little bit so even though most of our things aren't getting unpacked for the next 6 months, there is too much stuff in our place right now. Everytime we start to unpack stuff, we have to move other stuff...and then we can't get to the bedrooms...and then we have to move more stuff back and forth to get to the bedrooms (and bathroom!). AUGH! And I hate unpacking...even more than packing...and this is the first time we've moved with a baby! I didn't realize just how difficult it was going to be. The weekend we moved was actually okay, thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Guenther. Elijah stayed with them ALL day on Friday and most of the day Saturday (thanks Mom and Dad ). Sunday wasn't all that bad either...Adam and I took Elijah with us to the old place to finish up the final cleaning and the walk through with the manager. Ahhhh yes, but then the new week started. Although we have moved someplace that is aproximately 3 minutes from Adam's work, I have added at least 25 minutes to my drive. So instead of the usual 6am feeding of the baby and then a quick snooze before heading off to work, I have to get up right away. And drop Elijah off at his grandparents house on my way into work. And then drive 20 minutes to work...which I am finding is a long drive when you're sleep deprived. All this would be okay if Adam and I were getting to bed early enough. But we're trying to unpack and organize and so on...which goes slowly when you have a 4 month old who has gotten very vocally demanding when he's hungry. And he has decided that he likes to take his time now when he eats...so during these 1 to 1 1/2 hour feeding marathons, I usually fall asleep feeding him because I'm just beat. This leaves Adam to unpack by himself...I usually wake up to find a pile of newspaper on the floor and at least a bunch of empty boxes. Then I feel guilty for not helping him...and then I remember that after our 6 month lease is up, we might just be doing this again! AUGH!

Elijah and I are waiting for the cable guy to get here...one of the perks of this apartment is free basic cable and free high-speed internet. As you can see, the internet works great! Cable is another story...hopefully it's something simple that the guy can fix today (I miss my HGTV and Lifetime reruns of Grey's Anatomy already!). It's 10:40am now...he should be here before 1:30pm...

My baby is getting tired now...he needs a nap I think. This is my first day off from work since we've been completely moved in and a nice long baby nap would be great for me to get some things done around here. I will update soon...
