Toe Nail Clipping

Enough about moving stress at least for a moment. Last night after watching my husband clipping (and I use that word loosely) his toenails I just had to throw up my arms in dispair. He gets these things that look more like over sized cuticle clippers and starts to work on his feet. Well as he is cutting, bits and pieces go flying off into the air landing in various places across the wood floors in our bedroom. Once there they will never be found again until I step on them in the middle of the night and scream in agony since they are like pieces of shattered glass. Naturally being me, I have to comment that their are toenails all over the floor. He just gives me this look like I am crazy and ask me how is he supposed to cut his toenails and not have them fly off into the air. This is where I am actually speechless for a moment. Is he serious? I tell him I use nail clippers naturally. Poor thing just looks at me and says with an exasperated tone that those things never work for him. I have to agree with him here since we all know that male toenails can be quite bad and decide at this point to just give up and deal with the clippings on the floor a while longer. So now I am off in search of a pair of manly toe nail clippers that will cut through nails as thick as a dog claws.

Oh Such Emotions

I have been on such an emotional rollercoaster this last week and half. From the moment we first saw the BIG house until now I haven't felt a moments peace. I am constantly back and forth on the move. One second I am ready and can't wait to get there and the next I am so scared and sad to be leaving this house and all that it means to me emotionally. My poor husband is being a champ and trying to make this all as painless as possible but I know he is going through some of the same things. Just maybe not at my level of anxiety. He truly is wonderul, he says we can cancel this at any moment if I say the word. But do I want to say the word. My head says we are doing the right thing but my heart is sending out such a mixed message. On top of that the actual packing up process of moving is so daunting to me. I truly just want to stick my head in the sand but I know that won't accomplish anything. So until we are moved I guess I will have to keep on moving forward. I just hope I like it once we get to where we are going.

What have we done..

Well we got the house with the giant mortgage! And yes we still have our current house which also comes with a nice mortgage. So now the stress begins. So many things to do before we close on the new house. So I will try and keep myself sane in the coming days.
