Finally I see the rainbow!

Even though I'm tired from 3 sleepless nights with a coughing child, I am finally seeing the rainbow that comes after the rain!

And man, its been a long rainstorm! Like a 4 month long rainstorm!

I got a call today from my IRS advocate. The IRS has closed our account, and our money will be deposited THIS Friday!
This Friday! Now I can finally get this house on the market, and we can get down to Cali with our daddy we miss so much! I can get us a house rented, so daddy finally has his own space, no more living out of a suitcase, and we have a place until we are able to buy a house down there!
A dumpster is being delivered Thursday (I had this rented months ago, June 16th was their first available) so we can get rid of a lot of stuff. I still can't go down to Cali until after Jax surgery next Tuesday, and Carter still has a couple baseball games to play. But after that, we will be in Cali, looking at area's to live, and interviewing peds (that's going to be hard!)

Since this is a fantastically happy post, I have to add some pics of a princess!

This girl is determined to be just as dirty as her brothers!


I used my mad mommy skills, and busted out these cute bows to match her outfit in 10 minutes flat! New record I think!

I am laughing so hard at her faces I am crying. Espically the one toward the middle where she is making that face. I had to show my hubbie.

Glad to hear you have some good news.

Of course I can't not make a comment about how adorable those pics are! Sweet girl! I know you are trying to get to cali quick and trying to do a bunch of things but if you are able we should totally do that girls dinner before you go! Let me know what you think, I would love to see you before you take off!
