At this moment, I am sitting at the desk in our hotel living room thinking about everything...or so it seems...

We've signed the contracts on our home, had the inspection done, and the couple living in it now are planning to be out by Saturday, so we can take possession right away. Our moving truck won't arrive until sometime next week, I believe, so that still leaves us in the hotel for sleeping. But to look on the bright side, we will have somewhere to go during the day. The deck needs some repair and the living room is some bluish/green colour, so that will need painting.

The Pumpkin Festival began today and will last until Saturday. Hopefully we will be able to go out and experience it all before the festivities end. Tomorrow and the next day we have some more errands to run, Saturday morning we have a baby shower, Saturday we have preparations for Sunday, we might have something Saturday night and then we are having a Baptismal service on Sunday, and a feast...Is it just me, or do we sound busy? ;-)

Today, Mom Jessica and I went out to Home Depot. I'm sure you can all picture the funny scene. The three of us, looking for odds and ends for the house, with a cart holding two boxes so big that we had to pull it since we couldn't see over it, and trying to find a "how-to-build a fence" book. We asked an employee, and he started to tell us how he would build a fence and then ended with, "It is so easy. I can't imagine somebody taking the time to write a whole book on something so simple. Hee-hee..."

So, we bought some magazines with information on how to build a fence (which also listed two books on building fences), picked up brochures, went to a few other stores to find a decanter, bought shoes for Mother darling, grabbed some food to-go, came home, ate, put the babies to bed, sat in the hot-tub, and here I am, sitting at the desk in our hotel living room, thinking about everything...or so it seems...

  5. Alrighty, I don't have a problem with our southern folk continuing to use "y'all", but you northern natives need stop trying. When you use "y'all" in one statement and "ya" in the next it is blatantly obvious that you are faking! Just a small observation. ;-)

    Tiffany, sounds like "you guys" (southern translation: "y'all") are getting to be familiar with the "quality" northern customer service. I hope the rest of the transition to our northern way of life goes smoothly for you. :-)

  9. It has come to my attention that some people may have been offended by my observation about the use of "y'all" by northern folk. I meant to convey this in a friendly and humorious way and wasn't seriously telling people to stop using the word or that is wrong for northerners to do so. I am sorry for any hard feelings that may have developed due to my comment.
