A Quick Hello!

Much to my surprise, one of our neighbors has graciously decided to share their internet connection with the community!

But, who knows how long that’ll last…


Seth got home early on Friday afternoon. Almost immediately, we went to get the U-Haul. Gale (Seth’s dad) came down to help load up the storage unit and the two of them nearly loaded all the boxes in the garage as well! Seth’s brother, Josh, and a few friends came over around 6pm to help load the furniture and whatever was left. They finished around 9pm! And we still have stuff at the house that needs to be moved. We got the biggest U-Haul available and it did not take care of a 3-bedroom house.

Does that mean the truck is too small or that we just have too much stuff???

Good thing we’ve moved to a 5 bedroom home! ;)

Seth and I left the “old” house around 10pm last night. It takes at least 2 hours to get to the “new” house and we had to stop for gas. Plus, the U-Haul we got was a piece of junk and Seth wasn’t comfortable going over 65mph. We eventually made it here around 12:30am. Yawn! I bet we didn’t actually fall asleep until well after 1am.

This morning my brain must have been rarin’ to go because I woke up at 6:30am. My body was not thankful for that. (and neither was Seth!)

Now I’m just waiting until Seth gets up (so I can finish my “noisy” unpacking! ;) ) and then at 10:30am the movers (aka: family and friends) get here and the fun begins!!!


This Sunday Seth and I plan to head back to the “old” house to mow the yard, do some deep cleaning and grab whatever will fit in the car.

I imagine this week will be mainly filled with unpacking and generally getting settled. We’ll all have some serious adjusting to do now that our family will be living together again. I’m afraid that’s going to be more painful than I thought.

I’m hoping to establish a very set schedule with the kids. I’ve charted our days out…somewhere…now it’s just a matter of finding and unpacking that box!

Breck will begin potty training boot camp, as he needs to be potty trained before he can go to preschool. (Which, by the way, is only a handful of blocks away! Hooray for walking distance!)


But, I better get this posted before my connection disappears!

Hopefully, I'll be able to post again before Tuesday!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!!!


  1. Too funny that you have "free" internet right now. Count it a blessing for sure!! Have fun unpacking and can't wait to see those pics.

  2. Free Internet... amazes me that some people don't know to protect that!

    Hope all goes smoothly!


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
