What a week!

(If you didn't see the post before this one... Scroll down and check out the pictures of the boys. They are worth looking at!)

Well, as most of you are aware, we moved. We moved a whopping half of a block. The big problem wasn't the move itself, it was transferring the telephone and DSL service. The cable and power moved smoothly. The phone was a giant headache. The only thing that keeps me from wanting to buy a home is knowing we would have to call the phone company to deal with moving our service again. Even if its 20 years from now, its too soon to talk to Qwest again.

We had some fun making some purchases to go along with our new place. The couch, which I inherited from an old boyfriend when he got new furniture, has been replaced. We bought a beautiful tan micro suede five piece sectional. It is BEAUTIFUL. Indy has drooled all over it, and happily when the drool dries, it doesn't show at all! It is my new favorite piece of furniture. We also got to completely redo our bathroom, since most of our old bathroom things were demolished. I enjoyed picking out pretty new lace shower curtains and matching towels. I bought a new cherry wood stand for our electronics, too!

Chris is thrilled because he got to purchase a big Charbroil gas grill for our new back porch! This apartment has a sliding glass door on the master bedroom with a small patio and grassy play area. I got a picnic table, too! I am thinking of getting a small pool for Indy. I also plan on getting out there when the weather warms up and clearing out rocks and junk and re-seeding the grass. Lots to do. Lots to do.

Speaking of the weather... What is up with record lows all over the country? Sure, I don't actually CARE that it is cold everywhere else. But, dang, it is COLD HERE!! When we walk the pathway around the lake, even the ducks are curled up together for warmth. The geese didn't bother to frisk us for food as they usually do, because it is just too cold.

well, I have so much to say, and I know if I write too much more everyone will get bored and quit reading, so... I will end for now and pick up again tomorrow. Hopefully you all will wait with bated breath hoping I say something interesting on the morrow!!
