We're here! We're actually living in our new home. Yeehaw!!

After 12 nights of living at my parents' house, one long day of packing and unpacking a U-Haul, and a last-minute wrangling of friends for help, we've moved us and all our stuff into the house. Today was spent unpacking and making paths through the piles of boxes. The kitchen is slowly coming together (after I unpacked and arranged for about 5 hours!) and the rest of the house is insane. Fortunately, Liam got the laptop hooked up and I'm now sitting in the middle of our living room floor with a small plastic bin as my desk. It's so sad to be this desperate to get online.

Big highlights so far:
  • I discovered a small herb garden and some rasperry bushes in the back yard.
  • I've been able to get my gardening "fix" by weeding the various flower beds. Lily weeds with me, only her version includes sitting her butt in the middle of the flowers and eating rocks. Just because you're named like a flower...
  • Nick and Lily's room doesn't have a closet. It really threw me for a loop. Just ask Liam.
  • I'm falling more and more in love with my kitchen. It's so freaking cool.
  • I met a neighbour at a garage sale. She seemed really nice and I detected...an east coast accent!
  • Janine the super Telus geek hooked up my phone jacks in the kitchen. Geek friends are the best.

I'll update as things progress. Hopefully I'll get my life straigtened out enough that I can re-create a social life!!

I understand about no closets being weird. I know my Aunt's place a restored older home has either no closets or enough room for maybe my casual t-shirts. That is all though. It isn't quite the same but hey there are some nifty dresser units out there for kids at Ikea. Like you can afford them after buying a house.

Our phone number is the same and our phone is hooked up, so you can call either my regular home number or my cell.
