So our mooching began last month when we moved into my sister in law Mandy's house. We stayed there for a month and made huge messes and ate all their food. Keep in mind she has 2 little girls and she is in the process of moving!! So ya, we are huge moochers to say the least. It was very nice for us though to be able to sell our Byu housing contract when the new semester began and live rent free for a month! Our only payment was baby sitting... and how hard is that when her little girls are so cute- Laney is kind of insane though or at least I thought she was until we came to AZ and I learned an entire new meaning of insane. We are now mooching off of Craigs other sister Courtney. Courtney had 5 children in less than 5 years which now leaves us with seth-6, kate, paige and ellie- 4, and Chase-1. So we are watching these munchkins while Courtney and Jeff are in Vegas for a day. The insanity began around 2pm and then we were educated on how to sell your house when you have 5 kids living in it... stay out of the house. So when we took all the children home we learned from the answernig machine that people were coming at 7 30 to look at their house. The thought "fabulous" goes through my mind. So the kids were all ready for bed and fed and then got to stay outside until past their bedtime. good times.
I have learned that no matter how cute and sweet little kids are- they can be difficult and I have a greater appreciaion for what all you mothers do everyday.
Well, we will continue to mooch off of Craig's family for another week and then we will move on to mooching off of my family for a month in Boston... which should be fun considering my other siblings will be mooching at the same time.
Well as you can see Craig and I are huge moochers and we are so lucky to have 2 awesome families that let us be. But we will be moving to Manhattan the beginning of July and we beg all of you to mooch off of us any time you are out East...PLEASE!
