An entry at last!!

July 24th, 2009 at 03:06 am

First of all, I have to thank all of you that post regularly primary form of entertainment the last week has been reading your blogs on my blackberry at night as I have been settling into the new house and waiting for internet...which was turned on TODAY!

The new house became ours one week ago today. We ripped out all the flooring and took out a wall that day. And each day we have been doing what we can until the new flooring is installed this weekend. Tomorrow our satellite tv service is being installed. Once the flooring is installed I will finish moving. This past week, we have been living on dusty plywood floors with the bare essentials. Ironically, my friend from California came to visit and stayed with was interesting to entertain with minimal towels, dishes, etc. But we had a great time. She (and her hub) left early this tonight is my first home alone night in the new place.

Hopefully, I will get to move in completely in the next two weeks.

The hub had his first homecoming and left again Sunday for a month. Things were so busy while he was home and the time flew by. He is loving his new job...and we found out Monday that he got a $7 an hour raise!!! (he was supposed to get $3, but they decided he has the experience to earn the going rate...) Holy smokes!! The way his hours work, that is a $30k a year raise!!! He is now making almost TRIPLE what he made here.

I am loving our new home. The lady who owned it before me was elderly and took very good care of her yards and flowers...she has some beautiful things growing here. It is so peaceful on the back porch in the evenings.. I have a gardener coming on Saturday to give me a bid. I have never taken care of a yard like this and do not want to kill I plan to hire someone to help teach me...Sadly, the previous owner got very sick during escrow and passed away a few days before the closing...her funeral was on the day her home became mine. Not only do I want to enjoy the yards, I feel a resposibility (to her)to make sure they are cared for.

The Fair is this week...and on Saturday night I get to go see Bill Engvall. He is so funny- I am really looking forward to it. My job got free tickets, so it wont cost anything. (even better!!)

I have to say, is good!!!
