I am currently writing to you from the Wegman's near my house since they are generous enough to have a hot spot. This is a welcome break as I have done nothing but clean, unpack, pull wallpaper off walls (the easy stuff), paint some rooms, figure out what I am going to do with towels that are aqua blue and happy green when all of the bathroom have the same turd brown tile ,listen to people come by to give us estimates on everything from siding, to carpeting, to a new patio, to a deck, to painting the outside of our house and the inside as well. We've had numerous people come by to turn things on and connect things, but not a single person is capable of allowing us to set up our dsl until 8/25, so we are without internet access.
All in all, we have gotten a lot done. My husband mentioned last week that I am so busy that there is no time for me to cry. Part of me wanted to kick him upside the head ala Billy Jack, but he's right. We have worked really hard to make Baby Girl comfortable in the new house because she is not really liking it. She misses her old house and wants her old room back, and I am right there with her. Every day gets a little better. It helps that some of our friends have visited and she has had playmates to help occupy her time. And I'll be honest, I am motivated to get this house into a home so that I can stand to live in it.
In the meantime, I am COMPLETELY behind in my blog reading without a chance in hell of ever catching up. Especially since I am leaving for LBI next Saturday for a week and I will be doing nothing but drinking and stuffing my face with Peanut Butter and Fluffernutter sandwiches (that's Long Beach Island in New Jersey for those of you not in the know.)What's been happening?
