    Ok, I'm FINALLY in a house.
    We have our express shipment, which isn't much, but it did contain my destop, so I'm a happy camper. Just wished I had packed a sewing machine in it.
    We have phone and internet connected and DTV gets connected tomorrow.
    The BIG shipment of our stuff arrives on Monday and then on Wed, I am off to get Lauren and the babies and come back here.

    So happy for you, girl. Hate to move, let alone do it on a regular basis like you do! Sounds like things are finally moving along for you. Will be nice to be so much closer to those babies. Welcome stateside!

    It would be MUCH nicer if Bill would be here when they bring our big shipment. It will be Courtney and I to make sure everthing gets put in the room that it belongs in and to make sure ALL boxes come out of the crates. Not a fun job, but we do manage.

    hmmmm I'm wondering if you want to change the "somewhere I don't want to be..." for your location? At least you are closer to the BABIES!!

    Well? Right now I really don't want to be here. Might change my mind once we get our furniture and such.

    I'll be on and off. Trying to catch up on threads but have missed so much.

    It's nice to be back and will be even nice once I get my machine.

    So glad it's not a hotel. At one point I was beginning to think we'd never find a place to live. Then this place was advertised on Craigslist and we drove by it. Didn't look like much from the outside, but when we made the appointment to look at the inside, we were very pleased. Especially with the space I have for a sewing room!

    Glad your getting settled in...too bad about the sewing machine!
    You could have been setting up your sewing room.
    Bet the cats are happy!

    How far are you from the babies and Lauren now? It takes time to settle in but you are an expert at it! We moved 22 times in the first 20 yrs. Not the service just for various reasons.
    I liked moving as it gave us a fresh start and I liked finding things when I packed that I had forgotten I had. But I am glad to not be moving anymore. We moved on average every 2 yrs but we have been here now for 15 yrs, Sometimes I think about it and it seems so strange to have been in the same place so long.

    Can't wait to see more pictures of the babies!!! Bet they have really grown!!

    Cats are adjusting. I think they finally figured we are here for a while. Things have been put away and we are in seperate rooms, so I think they know we are staying put for a while.

    Lauren and the babies are about 10 hours away. BUT..it only takes about 2 hours to fly and then an hour drive to get to them. Flying is much cheaper than driving to them since it would take me 2 days to drive to her. I don't drive well in the dark.

    Wecome into your new home. I hope the getting all settled in will go smoothly and fast! Nothing like being all unpacked and setting up your home. And getting to enjoy your grandbabies. That is probably the best part.

    Once the place begins to smell right you'll feel more at home.

    Sure would be nice to see some pictures of the new digs.

    Once I get the bathroom painted, I'll get some pictures. The front yard needs TONS of TLC, but once we get things done inside, I can concentrate on the outside. All the other lawns here are mancured and ours just looks horrid. I'd love to get out there and start on it now, but Bill says not until we get the inside done. He's such a party pooper!

    Terri,
    I think you have a wonderful new home and you will be very happy once the dust has settled. It sucks to unpack, but it is great to sleep in your own bed, sit on your own couch, and have your own sewing room calling to you.

    If I could help, I would. Instead, I'm sending positive, loving, sympathetic thoughts..... feel the hugs???
