Whew! The last couple days I have been one hot working momma, and I'm not talking about my job. I'm on my last 2 days of spring break here, and really, they don't count as spring break because it's the weekend. But anyway, today is MOVE IN DAY! Did you hear me?? MOVE IN DAY! I just may be sleeping in my own bed tonight for the first time in almost 2 months. Hello? That is AWESOME! We actually went to set the bed up last night, and discovered that the movers (his friends) "misplaced" the wheels and bolts for our bed frame. Nice, eh? The one thing that we could have set up late last night, and there was no way. So I'm on a mission this morning to get us new ones, and if the originals show up in a box I'll take the new ones back. But NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING, is going to get in the way of me in my own bed tonight. The hard wood floors were sanded and stained a little darker, now they are a golden oak color, and then polyurethaned a couple times, and they are GORGOUS! There will be pictures of it, don't worry. And I have curtains going up today, some I made, some I bought. I even repainted all my purple flower pots to match the livingroom colors, which have ended up being a dark red and a golden/brown color. I re-did the pots in the last two days since it was pretty nice outside, and they turned out great. That's the best thing about those terra-cotta pots, you can always repaint them because they aren't fired. Now I'm just rambling on and on. Can you tell I'm so happy though? I can't wait to be living in my own house, even though things will be messy and in boxes, I don't care. And we can grocery shop for OURSELVES! I won't bitch about that anymore. I used to hate grocery shopping, and now I can't wait to do it!

We finally got most of the internet/cable issues cleared up in the new house. The old lady who lived there didn't have her cable shut off because she has alzhemiers and her attourney had to have it shut off, but that wasn't happening because....we have no idea. Anyway, it appears that someone came out and shut it off, so now we have an actual date to get our's turned on. Yay! I'm one step closer back to blog land on a daily basis!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
