Sorry for the lack of posting, life has been a bit crazy lately. Our movers came at 9 a.m. on the 23rd, and it took them a whooping 7 hours to load up our little apartment. And the stuff had already been all packed the previous day! Yeah, it was slow. Needless to say, we left a lot later that afternoon than we had hoped. Fortunately, we had some awesome neighbors who helped us clean up, so we actually were able to leave before midnight! We drove to Green River, UT that night, and then on to ABQ on Saturday. That's where we stayed with Dave's sister and her family for a couple of days, which was tons of fun. Their little girl Madde and Kaylee just hit it off, it was fun to see them play so well together. Tuesday, we got back on the road, and made it to Wichita Falls, TX. We drove through a big thunderstorm, which was exciting. It ended up catching up with us, so we got to experience it twice. :p Wednesday, we finished up our trip down here. Thursday was spent with some shopping and lots of phone calls to get last minute details ready for the house closing. Friday afternoon, we got our keys! We went to check out the house, and sadly some of the landscaping didn't look as nice as it did when we first saw the house. I don't know if things didn't get watered or what, but we'll probably have to remove some dead little trees and shrubs soon. I did figure out how to turn on the sprinkler system, so things have been getting watered, hopefully some stuff will come back. There is a little lemon tree with some little lemons on it, which is exciting. The grapevine didn't look so great, though. We also have a little pear tree, but it's still too young for fruit. Maybe in a couple of years. Then there's a raised garden bed, which will have to be weeded and fixed up a bit, but I'm hoping to get it ready for Fall planting. Exciting times! Oh, and the lawn needs to be mowed badly. We're actually considering hiring someone to do it for the next few weeks, while we get all of our lawn equipment etc. Don't wanna get in trouble with the HOA. :p The kids are totally loving the house. Kaylee already proclaimed that she's going to sleep in her own room, we'll see how that goes. They're also excited about the big trampoline in the back yard. Overall, we're very pleased with the house, and how everything has worked out over this past month. After all the excitement, we're just glad to be here now. We're still staying at the hotel, which is nice with hot breakfast every morning. I'm getting spoiled, haha. Tomorrow, all of our stuff should get here and moved into the house. We're also going to get our new fridge delivered tomorrow. It's going to be another busy day. Tuesday, we're going to officially move in. Whew!
So there, that's what we've been up to. I do have some pictures from our trip down, so stay tuned. :o)
