Life as I Know It Lately

As you know, we plan on buying a house here in the next little bit so we unpacked the minimum which means not putting holes in walls or unpacking a lot of the cute decorations. Believe me, totally fine. I hate packing/unpacking so I'm glad to not have to pack up things again. There's only one problem...

...lack of motivation on my part. It seems like since we aren't totally settling in for the long haul I feel the need to only do the absolute minimum when it comes to house cleaning and I'm finally fed up with it. Today has been a great day full of cleaning, laundry, and a little bit of organizing. Get this, I even washed our mattress pad. I won't even tell you how long it's been since that happened.

I'm not saying that the apartment is spotless but it definitely feels like a much nicer place to be.

...Now if only I was a little even slightly motivated to make dinner tonight. Around this noon time I start thinking about what to make even though very few of my meals require intense prep time. Then I don't think of anything and around 4 I start to rummage through the cupboards or my sweet husband will do a Sonic/Filabertos run. Maybe this will be my goal tomorrow.

I Should Really Be Better at Updating This Thing

So I'm going to try and update at least once a week with the comings and goings of the Clarks.

The New Apartment-- I don't really have any pictures of the place yet but it is put together pretty well. If you come to stay with us you might be staying on the futon in the family room since we're using our second bedroom as storage but that's what we got it for in the first place. We are lucky enough to have some great amenities like 2 pools that we've been to a few times and a gym that I went to for the first time today. This cute old man walked in and said "hello neighbor!" How fun. It's been way too long since I've worked out but I rode the bike for a good while which was nice.

The New Ward-- The ladies in RS are older but it seems like there are younger families in the ward that just teach so that's why I don't see them. The great thing about an older ward is that the activities actually teach us something. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED the activities in our other ward but this month is on home organization. It is nice to learn new things. Oh, and Jeff and I are teaching the 13 and 14 year old kids in Sunday School. They're a blast.

The New Job-- Can I just say it is sooooo much better than the retail life? Don't get me wrong, I loved my discount on shampoo but that's about all. Now Jeff is working 4-10s for the summer so he has every Friday off until August. And every night and every weekend and every holiday. It's great and we're learning what to do with all of this new time together. With it being this hot it has involved swimming, going to Bahama Bucks, and watching Modern Family. What a life!

Talk to y'all soon!
