Mayhem and Moving

I'm not really sure why I agreed to freelance at Fox my entire last week in Utah. You know, the week where I should be packing and running last minute errands like going to the damned Social Security building to reorder Violet's social security card which nobody should be surprised to learn I lost. I'm still doing that stuff too. And writing for Babble. So I'm kind of nuts right now. Forgive me if posting is sporadic. We get the moving truck this Monday and we plan on rolling out Wednesday, so I'm going to do my best to chronicle the whole damn adventure, but, you know. Shit happens

Add to all that madness the fact that our landlord is still needing us to leave the house every few days with kids and dogs in tow so he can have a damn open house, mix in a little of Violet drawing all over our white couch in pen (I know! Who the fuck buys a WHITE COUCH?! But listen, it was before we had kids. And it isn't really white anymore. It's kind of a sickly gray.) and Hank The Tank needing a bottle every ten minutes and I am drowning. Seriously! The kid puts formula away like nobody's business. I mean, what? Are his legs hollow? Because they aren't very big. Is he bulemic? Is he puking it all up when no one is looking and then crying for more? Can someone tell me!

Speaking of ol' Henry... Yesterday, for kicks, we dressed him up like a tourist and spent an hour recording him in various tourist scenarios. And laughing ourselves silly. You know, when we should have been packing:

More videos! That is HILARIOUS. Thank you for not packing for an hour to entertain us. In return I'm reading/watching this when I should be working.
