Well our Houston trip was fun, I was sick with a cold for most of the trip so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I wanted to but we still had a good time! It was strange to think that this was our last trip there with out a baby! I only took a few pictures...I have decided that I do not like the camera I have and hope that I can get another one before Anna arrives. I can't seem to get the settings right anymore...maybe Santa will bring me one...HA!!!
We are officially in our new house...its awesome having space to move around now! Daniel said it was nice that we could eat in the same room without having to sit side by side touching! Clingy, our cat, is back to her normal self after being a little skiddish of the new house. Poor Daniel had to endure the trip with her in a cat carrier from our old house to the new one...she wailed louder than I have ever heard an animal before! Daniel's parents gave us a king size memory foam bed...I'm not sure what we love about it the most yet...either the space we have or how comfortable it is! We went from sleeping on a full size so you know we really appreciate the new bed!!
Daniel has done an awesome job at moving us, he did all of the packing and moving, so now its my turn to do all of the unpacking! I can't thank him enough for what he has done. I guess another box of chocolate covered cherries from Tummy Yummy wouldn't hurt...ha! My parents also came in, my mom spent about 3 hours on her hands and knees scrubbing base boards, cleaning out kitchen cabinets and bleaching our kitchen floor and cleaning out our frig...the house was so filthy. The lady we bought the house from had a blind poodle when we looked at it...our newest joke about it is that she must have been blind too because she sure didn't clean! I spent about 2 hours cleaning our master bathroom and bedroom and was amazed at how someone could live in something that dirty! That kind of filth just doesn't happen overnight. My dad came in Saturday evening and helped Daniel set up our washer and dryer and worked on our tub that we discovered wouldn't drain completely. Daddy also went to Home Depot and bought us a huge set of tools and all kinds of other goodies!! Daniel's mom spent all day Saturday cleaning our carpets with a rug doctor...again, I was amazed at how dirty they were...some places she had to go over twice!! Daniel's dad has painted our entire house and will paint Anna's nursery soon after he does some repairs on it! I speak for Daniel when I say we can't thank our parents enough for what all they have done for us, we are truly blessed to have them!!
We still have a long way to go in our house...curtains and blinds being at the top of my list this week! We are going to Vidalia tonight so I can vote and bring some things back...just the important things like my tv, my computer...lol...we are having our cable, phone and internet hooked up tomorrow...I have been without internet since August and I am sure I will not know how to act once we finally have it!!!! I can't wait!!
Once we are more settled in the house and I am back to working on my computer I will be able to upload more pictures and hopefully blog more!!
