The one we finally got internet back

Monday: Well after a week of no internet we woke up eager for the Time Warner guy to come sometime from 8-2300. It hasn't been terrible but I am really eager to get emails checked and see what is going on with our bank account. The kids and I spent the morning playing together and just hanging out. I don't know if I mentioned last week, but we have fire ants and are currently trying to fight them so we are staying out of the yard until they are gone. While the kids were hanging out I cleaned and organized the kitchen a little better. Then we all had yummy lunch, and a nap. Darren is either growing again or back on a schedule, because he took a nice 3 hour nap! In the afternoon we sat and continued to wait for the Internet guy. And played and colored and all that fun stuff to keep the kids happy. Dustin came home, and we had some pretty tasty dinner, and Kyra actually ate everything off her plate!! So we got to have a bunch of strawberries for dessert!! And then the wait continued.....and continued...until finally Dustin had had enough and started calling and calling them. It took until 11pm to get a solution to the problem. And we got 5 dollars off our monthly rate for the year, plus a $20 credit on our account. And an appointment for between 8-9 am tomorrow.

Tuesday: We woke up ready to take the day on happy and fresh wih the promise of Internet by no later than 9 am. And what to our surprise but no one showed up by 9 am. Guess who that pissed off....yeah so needless to say we got a nice review for them. They finally came around 630 and we were connected by 7. Finally!! After which Kyra and Dustin ran to Walmart while I put Darren to bed. They went for coffee and filters, and came back with new pajamas and a hat!! But all is fair, she does look stinking cute in it! Then we were off to bed, and ready for the storm if it decides to hit!!

Wednesday: So tropical storm Bill, no big deal!! We got some rain and I have some cute pictures of Kyra playing in it, and that was about it. Wednesday's wasn't too exciting. We hung out at home as usual, and the went to pick up more stuff we needed!!! HURRY UP HOUSEHOLD GOODS!!! And had dinner at Old Chicago! And that was our day.

Thursday: Started out like any normal day, but we got to Skype with Tami and Preston!! Which of course was fun!! Then in the afternoon we ran downtown and bought a washer and dryer finally!!! Now we can wash clothes without going to a laundry mat! And the. We got to sit and enjoy our first real storm here, and make sure Kyra has no reason to be scared of the thunder!! 

Friday: Was a pretty relaxed day. We had our home inspection in the morning which was awkward to no end considering she was taking pictures and looking at every nook and cranny of our home while we were just sitting here. I don't know but I feel like that was something that should have been done before we moved in. We did however get great news! Neither our household goods nor car were on the boat involved in the fire. And both are either here or will be very soon!! So we planned our pick up of the car next Thursday when we will already be up in Dallas, and hopefully Monday the 29th they will be able to bring us our household goods, still waiting to hear when they arrive and to schedule drop off!! So excited. Friday afternoon the washer and dryer were delivered yay for clean clothes. And we ran out to get Dustin a GPS for geocaching this weekend!! Which was far more of an adventure as the first two stores we went to didn't have any!! Finally Gander Mt. Did and we were out too late to go home and cook. So we went to IHOP! Then home for bed time and a little workout!! Woot getting back on track slowly...July is going to be intense I am going to start lifting with Dustin!!

Saturday: Woke up early with Darren and Dustin went and got Donuts!! Yummo, then around 10 we packed up the kids and went on our first Geocaching adventure in Texas!! We are going to be making video clips and that will be our first vlog for you all to enjoy!! I hope you are excited!! So not two or three or blocks from the house the battery died so video clips, just two snap shots from Dustin camera phone. Tomorrow we will be more prepared and have more pictures of the crazyness!! On our adventure we did in the city around our neighborhood, and well let's just say between bad cords, and too many muggles, we were not very successful and kinda frustrated with it. So we took the kids home had lunch and looked for some out in the country to try instead. So we found a series called Loop 43. That had 13 caches along a stretch of county road near town. We were actually pretty successful getting all but 5 I believe. And while we were out we managed to see quite a variety of wildlife. Giant spiders, teeny tiny frogs, squirrels, deer including a tiny baby, long horn cows, and a few red birds which we weren't sure what they were. It was very eventful, and had Dustin and I squirming most the time after we saw the spider. After the CR we headed back into town and with the help of a fixed cord we managed to find the Peter Pettigrew Harry Potter themed cache!! In a rubber eat!! Kudos to Kyra for the find!! After that we were all very exhausted so came home for dinner and to hang out until bedtime when we found out Darren is madly in love with the stuffed moose we bought him yesterday!! As he fell asleep cuddling with it over me!!

Sunday: It's Fathers Day and Dustin's birthday!! Quite a fun day for everyone in our house!! We woke up and went to our favorite coffee place, yes we have been here all of freaking 3 weeks and have a favorite coffee place, it's that important. And we got breakfast and coffee!! If yall know me I don't cook breakfast it's just not my thing. I make it for dinner sometimes but I don't cook in the am. And then we went and got our groceries for the week :) after which we came home to do Dustin's favorite thing, NAP! Our afternoon was very relaxed because storms kept rolling through, so we just hung out most the evening, we did make a quick trip to West Hood to see where Dustin works. But that was all. And then we had Taco Casserole for Dinner a favorite of Dustin's!! And cupcakes for dessert!!
