update

Well this will be the 3rd consecutive night we have stayed at the house. We are far from being unpacked but we are functional in all the rooms! Tonight is the first night that we are J and I are sleeping on a bed and not an air mattress. I LOVE our new bed and pillows. It would be nice to have couches but we don’t have the living room painted yet so there is no rush. It works for us at this point because we don’t really ever sit down unless we are eating and we have a table for that. We have been so blessed by my parents housewarming gifts. Yes I said GIFTS. They got the kids each a mattress and they bought the girls bedding (the boys already had some), a lamp for our bedroom, and a dining room table (it seats 10 with the leaf). I wanted to get a big table that sat 12 but I really think we could probably squeeze 12 in this table if we needed too. I am very happy with the table size. I am just very happy to be home. I can see us living here, Lord willing for at least 30 years if not longer. I shouldn’t gain weight with all the stairs I will be doing...laundry is in the basement and the bedrooms are on the second floor! Let’s see this afternoon I was able to pull J away from working to go to a wedding. It was a really beautiful outside wedding. Afterward, we went out with a few couples for dinner. Tomorrow we are going to the other house and grab the last of our things and clean. We hope to hand over the keys and move on. The couple who own the house are just the sweetest people and we have really enjoyed being their neighbors, I’m actually kinda sad to leave but the commute was killer. Plus, it was only a 2 bedroom house so we were a little cramped. In other news the kids finish school next week I believe their last day is the 9th but it could be the 10th not sure?!
