I have a confession to make.....

The reason (one of them) that I haven't posted much OTHER than the fact that my computer isn't internet happy yet, is that my camera is MIA. Yup, you read it right, MIA. I can't even sleep at night I'm so distraught about it. During moving day, I had a backpack (the one I found while packing) with my school keys and swipe card, and my camera in it, that wasn't supposed to be put in the moving truck. It got put in there without me knowing it. So my poor baby camera is somewhere in a box in the garage, not to be found for some time. I attempted to begin the search a few times, but it's so cold here in Michigan that every time I get the ambition to search, my hard start to freeze out there. So that's my confession, and I feel bad posting without pictures, cause that's just what I do. I almost ALWAYS have a picture, and now I don't. Hopefully soon I will be able to find my precious Fugi, because to be very honest, I'm lost without it. Him. It's a him. And his name is Figi. I miss my Figi Fugi. ))))sigh((((

Aside from that camera disaster, things are moving along in the new house. We are still not living there yet, but we are painting all the rooms and bathrooms and the carpet was torn up last week. We only put new carpet back in the livingroom because the hard wood floor is beautiful....who would cover that up when people pay bookoo bucks for that? NOT US! We have one bedroom that has a red wall, one that has a burnt orange wall, and the last bedroom will have a dark blue wall. We wanted colors, but not too much. So that's why it's taking us so long to paint it all, because it's no easy task to cut in those colors! And of course we had to paint the ceilings in every room too, nothing is left unpainted! The livingroom was finished last week (in a about 3 days if you can believe it!) and the master bathroom was finished on Sunday. We had a new vanity, sink, and toilet put in along with paint. Whew! So much to do! I hope to be actually living there soon, like next week. There's no rush at this point because we are out of the apartment and staying for free at the 'rents, so it's all good.

I must say that we have been oh-so-blessed with awesome friends and family who really helped us out moving and redoing things. Kenny and I are not your typical do-it-yourselfers, so we either have to pay out to have it done or get help from those who know what they are doing. And almost everything we have done to the house has been done by a family member or friend, which is awesome. Like I said, we are blessed!

Enough rambling about that. I'm sure you are all sick of hearing about the house. Blah blah blah. I miss reading/commenting on everyone's blogs every day, so I will be back doing that soon. I catch a little here and there at school but I just don't have much time when I'm at work. I also have parent teacher conferences tomorrow so I should be getting things around for that. I hope everyone is doing well! Hopefully, there will be pictures soon! I just need to find the Fugi!

Oh, and what's this about no more Thursday Thirteen? I read on Lori's blog that it's not happening any more? What's up?

Your CAMERA?? Oh no,no,no..not Miss Lindsey...No, she can't lose a baking dish, a bedspread, or even her husband. She goes and loses her CAMERA on moving day!! Girl, what are you thinking?? LOL

Glad to hear that progress is being made on the new home. Can't wait for Figi to return from his vacation so we can see some pix!

Sorry about your camera, I'm sure its just a big lie because you don't want to share pictures of you new beautiful home, with the gorgous wood floors or the new sink....thats okay keep it to your self for now...But beware I will get pictures sooner or later :)

So do you feel different "home owner"? Lucky you with all the help you been getting too.

Good luck getting everything finished with the house. And you are lucky to have such great friends and family.

I did get Marley the hamster. He's a white with black eyes, dwarf hamster named Bobby. He is currently residing in the 100% pink Critter Trail Hamster Abode complete with dark pink hidey hold and pink Care Fresh bedding.

He's a little bit of a wild one, but I have been reading up on hand taming dwarf hamsters and hope to see some progress in the next couple of weeks. Haven't been bitten yet! (Fingers crossed)

When I can get him to slow down enough to get a good picture, I'll post one.

"See" you soon!
