Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

This week has been very low key.  That's if you don't count the loud neighbors and the fact that they tried to steal our trash and recycling cans.  Otherwise, I've been focusing on some blog related things and working with the kids still on educational stuff. We didn't venture out anywhere because I was expecting a few packages.  

And I'm thankful that almost all of them have arrived safely.  I think that one package got shipped to our old address my accident.  So, hopefully I can get that straightened out and reshipped.  I'm thankful that something positive is going on with the Mr that could have a really positive affect on our family.  I don't want to put too much out there, but just lift him up in prayer that everything works out.

Speaking of the Mr, I'm thankful that he didn't burn the apartment down the other day.  He was to heat up some mini pancakes in the microwave and forget they were in there.  I smelt something burning and thought 'Great the neighbors are about to burn the place down!'  But nope it was the Mr about to burn us down.  Thank goodness for windows and fans because when I opened that microwave door to douse those pancakes, I was greeted by the biggest cloud of smoke I've ever come across in my life.

I'm also thankful and excited that we maybe leaving behind our mystery neighbors sooner rather than later!  Yep, the YUMMommy family is moving yet again.  We're not in too much of a rush this time around.  Our property manager understands that this apartment has just not been a good fit for us.  It's too small and crapped for starters.  And I just can't live with the boxes that still haven't been unpacked in the kitchen and our bedrooms.  Plus, we really want a place with washer and dryer hookups.

At the end of the day, we are thankful to have a roof over our head, but still we're uncomfortable and stumbling around over each other almost.  Now if it was just the Mr and I this place would be a good size, but we have two very busy kids.  And there's no yard here.

Not to mention, I already told you all about how we found out there is some illegal activity that takes place at the park down the street from us.  I just can't risk exposing my kids to that.  So, I'm hoping we'll be moving either back to the first neighborhood we lived in when I was college or that we find something else here in Uptown.  Our first neighborhood was great.  It was upper middle to upper class, had security, multiple maintenance men, free carpet cleaning every 6 months, a fireplace, a lake front view and it was close to everything!  It was around the corner from the big park I wrote about in my last Thankful Thursday post.

So, pray that we find something available and family friendly.  This time around we'll have a moving plan though.  I have the double stroller already unpacked and we'll be enlisting my baby sister to be entertainment for the kids!

What are you all thankful for this week?
