Winning life's lottery!
|The first pieces of furniture in our new home...|
|Sunset the other night after finally finding a fridge!|
I couldn't believe how difficult it was to find a refrigerator. I have never bought a new one, please do not ask how someone reaches almost 50 without ever buying a refrigerator, because it is mind boggling to me also. After almost two full weeks of searching, burning the midnight oil to find one, we gave up. Okay, so maybe not completely gave up... we were in search of a black one, counter depth. It was like trying to find the holy grail. Evidently black is so last week... we ultimately decided to go with stainless (it's the new black!) and switched out the stove also, man am I gonna be doing some crazy listing on Craig's list! It was so sad to realize I could switch the stove and buy a fridge for less than a black one was going to cost.
Now we just have to wait. Seems counter depth refrigerators are not really something that ANYONE keeps in stock. It's okay. I haven't had time to really cook for weeks. Insanity has reigned supreme. And living out of two houses, well it's not fun.

There isn't supposed to be rain until late tonight, so hubby and I will definitely be taking advantage of the sunshine. In fact I should be packing or at the very least painting. I am definitely feeling a bit overwhelmed!

|Happy grand baby...|
I feel like I've won the lottery!
On the Monday before we got the keys, I was asked to accompany our teen trip this year to Brazil! Someone pinch me!!
I have always wanted to travel to South America! For my entire life! So you can imagine that it took me less than a minute to reply. After making sure that it wasn't a very cruel joke. It wasn't!!
So in the midst of moving, I have been scrambling like crazy to catch up and get ready to go to Brazil in less than a month. I have a feeling that August is going to be a lot like me trying to catch my breath, me trying to remember what sleep and normalcy feel like.
I am finally feeling better and not living in a sick, drugged fog. So this is helping, playing catch up is not.

Well, as much as I want to share all the things I have learned in the past few weeks, that will have to wait. I have boxes to pack and an SUV and a Truck to load before leaving at 7:30 this morning. And I want to cram them full! I am tired of driving back and forth, I need to make each trip count!
