Tuesday: We had a lazy day and enjoyed our last full day in the hotel. At 4 we went to the rental office and signed the contract for the house, afterwards we went over to the house to eat dinner but didn't stay long as the electricity was turned off still and the house was hot. We went back over to the hotel and got all our bags packed up and Dustin brought them to the house.
Wednesday: We started out with our last breakfast with Dustin, then Kyra and I did a once over the whole hotel and got everything by the door ready to go, and vegged out on the last TV we may watch for weeks. During lunch break Dustin swung by and grabbed us and we were off to the house. While Dustin was at work I got the power set up, finished most of the pre inspection form, dealt with the bug people, and guys who came to change the locks. And still managed to get little man down for a couple naps. The day seemed to last forever, but Shade and Kyra got to enjoy a little time in the back yard playing! Finally Dustin came home, and got ahold of the lady we are buying our couch from, and Jane and got everything arranged to go pick it up. Then ran out to pick up money and dinner!! We finally got the house and had somewhere to sit other than the floor. And made a quick trip to Walmart for blankets, and other things we need to get through until Friday!
Thursday: We ran all sorts of errands, got the water turned on talked to Time warner and picked a plan, and Dustin even went and picked up the box which turns out to be useless and they can only come Monday to fix it!! We ended the day with Kyra and Dustin getting pizza and playing in the yard before bath and bed!!
Friday: As we were up early and haven't had breakfast food from a restaurant in some time...okay like a year we left o go to Denny's, and which was closed due to remodeling. So we went across the way to IHOP which had a 20 plus min wait so we decided coffee and donuts at a shop down the street from our house was good enough. We finally got paid, and went to the store to get groceries!! It is so nice to eat meals that don't consist of fast food. After groceries Dustin finished a few things he needed to do on post, and we ran to Target. For our first time really shopping here in years we managed to escape with just 100 dollars worth of stuff most of which we needed!! We even got a sweet ass coffee machine that was on sale. The thing makes ice coffee!!! And holds the coffee inside so you can just push the button and it comes out into your cup. Haha the things that excite a coffee addict. The rest of the evening consisted of fresh green beans, homemade meatballs, and Spaghetti!! Followed by outside play bath and bed!! Oh forgot to mention my awesome new friend gave us a couple pots and a pan to cook with!! Thank heaven we are so excited for real food!!!
Saturday: So as you know we have pretty much nothing to our name right now, so we are spending a lot of time shopping!! Well today we went to Ross and got a few thigs to make our house look homey until our stuff gets here. We got some pretty cool stuff which I'll show later when I do a house tour type thing. But for now you can see Shades new bed, the dog is pretty much only laying in it or outside, she is so happy with it!! And since the new couch rule is no dogs on it she has been doing great!! We also couldn't resist the craving for chipotle. I mean doesn't it look awesome!! Then we just came home and spent the afternoon at home playing with the kids!! And I got to have my first outing here. Darren came with me and we went to a painting with a twist party!! It was so much fun!
Sunday: Our goal for the future is to not spend money on Sunday's and do things like geocaching, swimming in a lake, or fishing...you get the gist. But today we didn't follow that rule yet, and we ran out to the mall to go see what was there, and to pick me up some shorts because I own like none. And we'll turns out the mall doesn't open until 12 so we just drank coffee checked out stores and went to Ross. I grabbed a few pairs of shorts there and then we swang by Walmart to look for Frogg Toggs to keep the kids cool but ended up with just salsa for dinner and a book for Kyra. Finally we came home and I made fajitas and Dustin went to the laundry mat and did some clothes. After dinner we splashed in the puddles and everyone was off to bed. Ready for our first full week in our empty but nice new house.
