Day 149: Unpack the PS4 first
My kids are having a hard time adjusting to the end of the school year (my lil’ geeks love their school) and to moving homes so abruptly. Our move was sudden and the kids have been distressed about their belongings being in garbage bags. There is not a single room in my home that is unpacked and not under construction (my kitchen is almost done just missing half of the floor). With all the stress and woes that come with the end of the school year and moving we have still made time to kill some (very few) but some bugs and set up our high speed internet.

A FAMILY WITHOUT INTERNET CANNOT STAND
Our previous residence had spotty cell reception and rock built into several of the interior walls that disrupted our wifi connection. Even with high speed internet and two top of the line routers our connection was not consistent. I would often hide my daughter’s kindle so she wouldn’t steal bandwidth while I was trying to play a game (I know, I know I can be a shitty mom sometimes).
Our awesome neighbors at the new house let us siphon Internet for a few days but this was not adequate or viable long-term solution. The hubs called our local service provider to tell them we were moving and the next day they came out and hooked us up. The craziest part of this story was the service guy was 10 minutes early (we weren’t even home when he arrived). We were unpacking games and anime and quickly discovered the guy was a fellow nerd who explained why we should upgrade and how to maximize our service. Um…this guys is basically my hero. Needless to say I have not had to hide my kids kindle for 2 days straight.
THE CON ARTIST

I am not trying to diminish the fact that my kids have actually had a hard time adjusting with our move. But my son is totally using his baby brown eyes to milk it for all its worth. The hubs and I discovered he has been logging 3-4 hours of PS4 time a day by conning adults into “playing with him because he is lonely” (cue teary eyes here). My teenage sister, neighbor, hubs, and myself have all fallen prey to this adorable kid without realizing we are each getting conned. No wonder unpacking is taking so darn long.
So the master bedroom needs so much work I cannot even begin to describe to you. I love that the kids don’t call it the master bedroom but “mommy’s room.” Currently all that is in that room is my bathtub sofa, yoga props, our 42 inch high def television and my PS4 system and games. The room is not practical for anything at this time but playing PS4 which though not ideal is working for us.
My blogging and gaming have been inconsistent but they are not abandoned completely. Now that I am on to my 6-year olds manipulations I will get some married time with my controller.
