So...what's been going on...
*We walked out of our house last evening for the last time. Closing is just a few hours from now. It's a happy, happy thing. But you know, it's also kind of weird and unsettling. Pretty sure I'll get used to it though. :D
*We moved into our hotel last night. It took hours to set up "house," but it was so worth it this morning to get up and not have suitcases and boxes of school books and bags and coolers of food sitting all over the place.
*We upgraded our digs. Gray called his friend the other day to tell him where he was going to be. Here's what he said:
Dad got us a room with twin beds and Mom got mad and now we're staying in a 5-star hotel.
I cracked up so hard when I overheard that. :P While not a precise account of what happened, there's definitely a strand of truth running through it. We are not staying in a 5-star hotel, but Rich did manage to find us a bigger place to stay for the next month. Yep, definitely more expensive but I think for sanity's sake alone it will be well worth it.
*Oh my, how we all miss our furry friends. :( We took Bacon and Lucky and Aldo to my parents on Saturday. And I can't even count how many times one of the kids has pulled up iPhoto on the computer just to look at pictures of them in the few days since then.
*I checked google reader this morning, all determined to finally catch up. Ummmm...what the hell was I thinking?!! Over a thousand unread posts. Yeah, not happening. Mark as read--start afresh--do better job from now on. Thus is my sincerest wish anyway. 'Cause dammit--I miss you all!!!! And now I have a favor to ask you since there's no hope of me ever catching up on the past month's blog posts...tell me posts I have to go read--what awesome things have happened and what horrible things have happened (I sooooooo hope no one has anything to say for that one!) and what books I need to add to my wish list and well, anything else I really ought to know.
*Hope everyone is having a truly fun and fabulous Leap Day!!!!
