Back in Action!

Well, we did it!  We moved into our new house!  What a week it's been...First of all, we've been without internet for a week, which has not been fun.  I felt very out of touch, and not a bit relieved to be away from things.  I do like a weekend here or there without the computer, but a whole week was not fun.  I had put my Etsy shops on hold but of course got about ten orders, which I found out when I lurked in the Starbucks parking lot and used their wifi with the iPad.  Cable I can do without, internet not so much...

But we're here!  Every day I find something else about the house I love.  We were able to move right in and unpack and are now trying to get settled.  Things are not the exact way I want them but it's nice to know we can do things here little by little because we're here for the long haul, not just a year!  And we don't have to ask a landlord if we can do anything, it's our house!  So happy about that.

The other night I was doing dishes and looked out the window to see this:
What a cheerful little family picture this is!  Notice the new grill?  We have been to the store a million times picking up things we need.  Grill, dehumidifier, lawnmower, shelves, broom, new mailbox.  The list never seems to end.  But it's great!  Otis agrees.

That photo of your family playing in the yard is gorgeous. Just what a family should look like.

Don't forget to send us your new addy too, so Emily can send Ingrid another indecipherable postcard ;-)
