Moving continues

Since it is 6:00 in the morning and I can't get back to sleep and I'm already on my second load of washing clothes I thought I would come into the computer and bore everyone else :) We are still in the move process. After being gone 3 days to Mississippi we are now home for a long week. So hopefully we will accomplish a lot. I just don't understand how 2 people can have so much "stuff" I have already packed boxes and boxes of my Dept 56 collection and last night I packed 4 boxes of Arthurs medical books and there is more to pack. The Cimarron house now looks like a war zone, there are wires hanging out of all the walls for all the surround sound and for internet connections and phone lines everywhere, this, that and the other wall has some new paint, there are patches of new crack patches on the wall. There are holes in the walls, closets and floors where the wiring guys have been working, Half the living room carpet is cut away. In other words it is a mess. They installed new washer and dryer yesterday and found out water connection had a major leak so that is being finished today. Plumber for water softner decided more lines had to be run than planned. Plus he showed up an hour late so I sat in a lawn chair in the garage from 11:00 to 3:30 waiting for him to show up. (That is the only chair and place to sit in the whole house at this time) Today I'm taking a break and going to lunch with Bruce and Dad to Kohls to shop, doesn't sound like much to the common folk, but to me its a vacation :) Ok, I've bored myself enough................have a great day everyone. And you should all get a life instead of taking the time to read this rambling. :)

Not everyone knows but it is official we are moving. Nope not out of town, but to Bruces' Cimarron house. As of a week ago the process has started. Painters are there now, new carpet goes in June 1st and then after a LAST work trip to NC and then a couple of days of working in MS. We will have movers move us on June 16th, that is a Friday and then we have a long weekend to settle in, we will work the following week in Missouri with no overnights, so it will be the perfect time. We wanted to get in about 10 days earlier but w/ work schedule just couldn't make it work. The movers will be moving furniture and a few boxes. We are moving things to storage and the garage as a staging area now. Plus the kitchen is practically all moved into a present. (It's been a busy week) Since the kitchen walls are wallpaper and don't need paint, I have already set up all the cabinets and got stuff into there. Well I have now posted the last 2 post of all the family so everyone, please please POST something new.

Mothers Day

I see I havent' posted in ages so here goes. Just returned from KC. We went there yesterday early morning (Sat.) got to Jason's and Susans in time to take a quick look at the nursery furniture all set up and the on to the baby shower. We went over an hour early to set up things. Arthur stayed at their house and worked on the laptop getting things ready for us for work the next 2 weeks. The shower was great. Susan made beautiful orchid arragements for the food area and then tulip arrangements for the tables for all the guests. The food was great and was so attractive display along with a delicious cake, both white and chocolate. We played the usual shower games and watched as they opened gifts. Jason got misty eyed (as did some guests) when they opened a gift I had wrapped from Mom (Meme) of the first hand knit afagan she had knit when I was pregnant with Jason. The shower was great and I would post pictures, but I got to the shower and realized I didn't have my camera. The last thing before leaving I did was put in a new charged battery and then I sat down the camera on the counter and never picked it up again. Needless to say I wasn't happy. Jason does have pictures and hopefully he will post soon. We stayed last night at Crown Center Hyatt and walked over to Crown Center for dinner and then just had an early relaxing evening. This morning we met Jason and Susan for an early lunch at Cheesecake Factory. Luckily we decided to get there early, actually arrived 15 min. before they opened) got right in and when we left about 11:00 there must have been at least 60 people waiting for tables. We are home now, unpacked and ready to do nothing but catch up on TIVO and relax. If I learn how to post pics, my next post will include pictures of something. :)
