Just a short little post

I think my little apartment should be considered a disaster site!! I have so much to do this week, and so little time to do it! I have been packing most of the morning and I feel like I have barely made a dent. We still don't have a house, but we are moving into a storage unit this weekend! I am so grateful for ward members who are so willing to help. Thank you!!
I just wanted everyone to know that we have not fallen off the face of the earth, things are just absolutley crazy around the Anderson household! Thanks for your care and concerns!!
My Grams told me she reads my blog, so I have to give a shout out to her! I love you so very much!!

A not so exciting update, but one none the less

I have friends requesting an update on the Anderson Family, and the update is that there really is no update. :) We haven't found a house yet, but our real estate agent is hopeful, and that makes us feel a little better. We walked into one house that was a disaster area. The people just up and left and left nearly EVERYTHING behind! Both Matt and I felt such a sadness in the home, but it was and incredible floor plan and I could have my own massage room! The front room was large enough that I could teach infant massage classes too! But, it was defiantly on the upper end of our price range. I'm not sure why we torture ourselves that way. We could afford it, but we would be married to our mortgage. No dollar movies or anything, and neither of us were sure we could live like that. So we keep looking, and hoping and praying that something comes along. Our agent is so incredibly patient with us, and I'm not sure, quite frankly, how she does it! But she continues to give us hope and love us right along! Thanks Natalie!

Last weekend I took an infant massage class and it was so incredible! It just affirmed to me that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. I am walking the path I was destined from birth to walk. So, I need to teach 5 parents with babies under 7 months the strokes, so if you know anyone interested, spread the news. I have a lot to get done before July!! I want to teach the world this amazing tool! We had a mom with a baby in the class and she said he was usually so very fussy and he only pooped ever 3-4 days. (I think I would be fussy too!!) By the end of the 4 day class, he was pooping 4-6 times a day!! Talk about a lot of back up to get rid of! And not to mention, he was one of the happiest babies I have EVER met!

Right now, our apartment is in shambles, boxes everywhere (empty boxes I might add...we are both dragging our feet when it comes to packing!), and we are just going crazy. We have accepted our in-laws invitation to room there for awhile until we can find a home. That way, we can save up money for a down-payment and maybe some furniture, since we don't have any. :) I am working a ton of hours, but I still enjoy what I do for the most part. Matt has put in an application for a manager position at his job, and we are really REALLY hoping he gets it! He works so incredibly hard for that company and he does not make even half of what he is worth. He won't even have an interview until April because the person who needs to interview him went to Hawaii for a month.

And that is your Anderson Update in a nutshell. Thank you so much for caring! We are so grateful to have friends who love us and check on us! Keep us in your prayers!
