We are in our new home!!

Our household goods got delivered Tuesday. They got here at about 11am and finished around 5pm so didn't have much of a chance to unpack on Tuesday.

We took Michael to Southern Virginia University on Wednesday morning. We got him all settled in his dorm, went out to eat at Applebee's, and then spent the night in Lexington VA at a hotel.

Thursday morning we made a run to Walmart to pick up things that he would need for staying there (he has his computer so doesn't need much else) then we left to drive back home. When we arrived home we had to mow the grass as it was knee deep...decided the battery operated weed eater isn't going to cut it at all. I also decided that we need a blower. Our lot is about a quarter of a mile but we have a walk out basement so there is quite a slant on the sides. It appears to be about twice as big as our lot was in Texas...bummer...kinda.

Today I have been unpacking all day. I finally finished up the last kitchen box but am still washing dishes. We really need to find our Makita cordless drill so that we can put together our waterbeds but we can't find it anywhere. We are hoping that the movers didn't steal it. I also have not found my sewing machine yet but we haven't gotten to the bottom of every box so we are hopeful that we can find those items. I will post photos soon.

TWO more days in a hotel...YEAH!!

Thursday, August 12, 2010


Our closing HAS been pushed up closer (it is on Tuesday the 17th of Aug) BUT our household goods will NOT be delivered until the 24th. Our new home does NOT have a fridge and ours is in storage with our other household goods so we will be at the hotel for almost 2 more weeks.


Not really liking that at all.

Random thoughts

So...we made it to Maryland. I am sitting in a hotel...FUN...NOT!!

Hopefully we will close on our new home next week. So far it has been moved up 10 days but we are hoping for 12 or 13 days. At least we know that there is an end to our time here. The other good thing is that they gave us 2 rooms in the hotel so we can each have some privacy...YEAH!!

We attended our new ward yesterday and they are sending for our records. It really is beautiful here. It is hot but not too hot and humid but not too humid. I love all the trees that grow everywhere.

Our oldest granddaughter had her eighth birthday yesterday and got baptized!! I am really sad that I missed it but I am so proud of her for her decision. 

Michael is all set to go to SVU. It will be strange being empty nesters.
