Settle down, it will all be clear

Today marks exactly 1 week since we have lived in Vernal, Utah. 
My Madre came to Colorado to help me pack and my dad met us all in Vernal and helped unpack. I still have a bit of work to do, but considering the amount of time I have been here, I'm pleased. Moms are lifesavers though, am I right? My secret weapon really. 

Things have been, not surprisingly, on the uneventful side. Scott started work and is excited/a little overwhelmed and I have been unpacking which makes me excited/a little overwhelmed. The girls have been woefully neglected and would like to make sure that EVERYONE KNOWS they don't like it. Even the bunny, after finally being let out of her cage, ran (hopped quickly) up to my feet and THUMPED so I would pet her. Okay I get it people. Settle down. 

Pet me or die.

I did venture to take the girls for a "quick walk" to the library in an effort to win some mom points back. I ended up walking a mile and half in the wrong direction. It's embarrassing, because I'm pretty sure the whole town is a mile and a half long. By the end, I realized my mistake and,  covered in sweat and trying not to swear, stopped at a dinosaur statue (one of many. Scott's lunch break was coming up so I S.O.S texted him to come rescue us. It was all very... adventurous?

Annoying. It was annoying. We were all annoyed. Except for Ruthie who was happy to try and walk in the busy street every chance she could get

We DID make it to the library (eventually) and Georgia wanted to sit quietly (!) and read books and Ruth was like "cool toys, but I'd rather go bug this girl on her computer and pull down every single book I see forever." By the time we left, Ruthie went missing for 30 seconds (she was in the back room with a magazine) and Georgia was scream crying because I helped her scan the library card. No mom points. 

I tried to make up for it by painting Georgia's fingernails AND toenails today... and we even decorated a little for Halloween! We'll ignore how many times I said "please get out of my room!" or "please be quiet for just 1 minute!" 

Moving is all about survival anyway so I'm not stressed about it.

At least she looks cute dressed as a princess as she incessantly gets in my way.

Tomorrow is a new day... of errands.
