Ramblings...

Finally, one major task out of the way. Yesterday, the photographer came to take pictures of the interior of the house. We spent the entire week moving as much junk out of our house and into the basement of the new one in preparation for the open house. Of course, now that all the stuff is gone, our house echoes and feels a bit empty. Now I have a week to get it all clean for the open house next Monday.

I have been tagged by the dear Sarah. Thought this one should be easy as my middle name is only three letters! Here are the rules...

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blogpost containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog!

A - Anxious! Oh, for so many things! Getting Noah into daycare a couple of times a week to start having time for ME! For a bigger house, so that we all have some room to move and grow.

N - That is an easy one, NICE! Raising three boys isn't always an easy task and I am trying to teach them the value of being NICE over everything else! I consistently tell them that they will get far in life by being NICE. I think that teaching children the importance of being NICE seems to be a bit underrated these days.

N - is for Negotiate. Yep, there is definitely a lot of that going on here in regards to weekly allowances. I am negotiating new furniture and appliances for the new house. Half way there! I figure as the kitchen is ripped out and starts taking shape again, he will see the IMPORTANCE of a built in espresso maker!

Going a bit against the rules here, and tagging some folks that initials are not in my middle name!

Hei Erika! Koselig at du utfordrer meg til den taggingen. Men jeg har akkurat skrevet om meg selv i en annen tagging-runde, så jeg velger å hoppe over å skrive mer om meg i denne runden. Du skjønner sikkert.... litt mye fokus på mitt ego... Ha ei fin helg videre, spennende å høre om huset ditt =) Blir sikkert fint!

Negotiating? Heck, that comes natural to you. You use to negotiate by telling my you'd eat your potatos if you didn't have to eat your peas. Every dinner was a negotiation. I was amazed how creative you were in coming up with ideas to get out of eating things you didn't like. dad
