Still waiting for Carter's arrival...

We are still waiting for the arrival of:
This is a clever photo art wallhanging Sara made for a Carter's bedroom. Take photos around your town of letters, or things that resemble letters. The "c" is from a playground, the "a" from a store sign, the "r"s are obviously from a railroad crossing, the "t" is a telephone pole and the "e" is a fence. This hangs above the crib.

Thoughts for the day...

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four
persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think
of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then
it's you.

And, by the way, whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

I think we are settled in...

A few more photos of the house...a before and after of the Great Room/Kitchen and Morning Room.

master bedroom: and my favorite chandelier:

I don't miss the old house....probably because I am so in awe of this new place. I expect that my last trip over to that house will sadden me with a walk down Memory Lane...a 30 year walk!!

Pandora has finally come out from under the bed and realizes that this IS home...and my hubby has begun to organize the garage ( I am hoping he builds a Card Room/Exercise area/Man Cave/"whatever you call it" in the cellar - I need a place to send him when he gets on my nerves....Like right now:
He: What are you doing?
She: Nothing
He: Well, you must be doing something
She: Working on the computer
He: E-mailing?
She: Nope
He: Then what?
She: Not much, because I have to keep answering you!!!
and it goes on and on....so he needs a special place for me to send him and I need to "plant the seed" now so he can think it was his own idea)

School ends this week and I am off to Ohio to await the arrival of our grandson. That reminds me of the reason I began blogging...it was to have a place to keep photos of him....I started early so that I would be somewhat experienced by the time he arrived. I am ready....BUT IS HE?

We've moved in...

Here are a few progressive photos of the living room...it's a slow process, but I am enjoying every moment. I am on the hunt for a new rug to be placed under the coffee table. Finally out of the old house and waiting to pass the keys on to the new owners.

Still moving....

We have too much stuff....really....We have been moving for 5 days and still have a few more loads. Suggestion: always hire movers!! We should have, but I have a stubborn husband who said, "no, it will be easy, and we can take our time". Good thing we haven't closed on the old house and that we do have some time. So for the last 5 days we have had no phone, internet nor TV (daughter says we have been living the Amish lifestyle - and she didn't enjoy it at all!) So, in a few days I will be posting a some photos - the home is lovely and I am enjoying every moment. Stay tuned...

A long time coming...

We are closing on our new home on Thursday. No more sleepless nights decorating in my mind!
Now the fun begins.....

PS Ray....wouldn't you have called the cops, too?

Drive Bys

We should be "closing" on our new home this week. That will leave us at least 2 weeks to move out until the new owners move into the "old" house. They have been driving by the "old" house, slowly, and must be as excited to move in as we are to move out! The next few weeks will be utter chaos - and I am sure I will not be able to find anything - but it will all be worth it....stay tuned...

Thanks for stopping by!
