We are officially in our new house, and our repairs are moving along nicely. We have had some bumps in the road, including having someone break into it Friday night and steal some of Simon’s power tools. The kids and I didn’t lose anything because the house was still empty. However, the house is more secure now, and we have the dogs there all the time now.
The kids repaired the drywall like professionals, and the colors we picked look really great. We’ve gotten some things for the house from friends and family, and we are really enjoying being there. Simon installed a pet door. Right after that, the dogs learned out to get out of the fence. 😦 This weekend, we are going to price fences. This wandering thing is getting old.
Yesterday, we woke up to a snow-covered world. Because we were moving, we hadn’t watched television, and the winter wonderland was a complete surprise. The news was blaring all kinds of warnings about ice, and flashing pictures of incapacitated vehicles everywhere. I was concerned because a) I have a new car I don’t want wrecked and b) we live at the top of a magnificent hill.
Fortunately, Dj found a safer way out of our neighborhood, and our truck has 4 wheel drive, so I was able to make it to work, albeit later in the day.
Overall, things are going pretty well these days! I’ll check back with you soon!
