Jared started a new job the day after we got home from the hospital with Kerrigan (I won't even go into the kind of emotional trauma that it caused me to be left alone with her so soon- that is not the point of the story).

It is down in New York City, really close to Grand Central. He is doing awesome and loving it. In fact, just last night he got an email from the head guy on one of his projects really praising him on a job well done. I couldn't be more proud of my hubby...HOWEVER, as I mentioned the job is in the city.

As of right now his commute goes as follows: bus to train station, train to Grand Central, walk to work....and then do it all again on the way home! He spends about 3 hrs commuting EVERY DAY!!!! So....

Once again we are moving (hence the UGH title), actually a couple of blocks away from our original CT apartment. We are excited about the new apartment, and with the shuttle that goes straight from our apartment to the station and correlates with the express train his commute time is cut almost in half! HOWEVER, I am in the process of packing up our belongings (once again) for our move tomorrow- DOUBLE UGH!!!

For those of you who have been keeping track, yes this is the 8th move in less than 3 yrs of marriage- TRIPLE UGH!!!! I really can't complain, because Jared has once again done most of the grunt work since I get to use the baby as an excuse- again (last time I was 7 months pregnant) : )

Here are some pictures of our moving process (please note the Idaho boxes, thank you Johnsons):

It's ok, sis, I hate packing too!

A side note, but very much worth mentioning: Cynda took K for a few hours to help me out today (THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH- I was able to get so much done). Seeing how Kerrigan blew out of her diaper in ALL 6 outfits I left unpacked for her (for 3 days-you would think that would be enough), this was the only spare outfit I had. It is the outfit Jared put into the diaper bag when I asked him to put a spare outfit for church. Lucky Cynda got to see the outfit up close and personal when Kerrigan blew out of yet another outfit while she was there.
In case you can't see, she is sporting a pale pink shirt with bright pink bows. As an accent, her pants are a pale pink with bright pink, brown and ORANGE stripes...doesn't she look LOVELY!!!
Love you Jared : ) And now I return to packing!!!!

Moving sucks! I feel for you.

Though, on a more positive note, we'll be living in Jersey this summer. I think in Clifton. We definitely need to hang out!

Oh hon! I feel your pain... by the time we get back here, it'll be 8 times for us too... :-( BUT just look at it this way, after tomorrow, you can have free babysitting any time you want (up until the 24th, when I leave)!

We'll be here, just knock, or text...
