Qwest Sucks

Lexi must have sent her evil Dutch internet vibes 'cause we just got our internet back today. C has strep, A has another sinus infection and medicine-induced diarhea, J still cries when I drop her off at daycare, and we are still trying to get the house set up while working full time. Feel sorry for me! ;) Anyway, here's some pics of the house and the kids to keep you occupied.

The Internet Cometh

We've got internet! (I suppose that was obvious considering I'm writing this post) We're all moved into our new home, though there are still some boxes to open and it's become pretty evident that all this space is going to require more shelving to go with it because, while we are finally able to display all of the crap we've aquired over the years, we have no where to put it! Anyway, I've got to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to let ya'll know we're finally back online. More posting later, I swear!

We have a house! We move in on Monday! We are no longer forced, er...priviledged to live with my parents! I'm just kidding. I don't know what we would have done without my wonderful parents opening their home to us and being so patient as we hunted for the perfect house (which turned into a hunt for whatever house was available but whatever). We are happy with our pick as it has a ton of room. Almost 3000 square feet to be exact. And, it's a four bedroom, so everyone will actually have their own room! (The nice thing about renting is that you can generally find something much nicer than what you could afford to buy) Plus, it is literally about 4 blocks from my parents house. We can walk over whenever we want, mwah ha ha ha! I can't wait for the day when C "runs away" to grandma's ('cause you know that's going to happen at some point!)

A is doing much better, but now J has taken to waking up in the middle of the night and wanting to come sleep with us in our room. I'm not sure if she's having nightmares or what, but she is not exactly a pleasant sleep companion. She's more of a kicker and pincher than a snuggler. So sleep is still escaping us. One of the greatest things about this house is that all of the kids bedrooms are on the first floor and the master bedroom is on the second floor, so hopefully that will solve the sleeping problem ;) Anyway, we move in on Monday, so I'll be sure to post some pics as soon as I get the chance.

Still Waiting

Sorry I'm not blogging much as of late. The move has not been as smooth as we would have liked. The house we had originally contracted to rent ended up not being for rent (despite the fact that we had signed a contract, sigh). So we had to go back to the drawing board, except with both of us working, we ended up using all of our evening and weekend time to house hunt. Tim also went on a quick spur-of-the-moment trip to Austin last week to visit the step-kiddos since we figured this was a good time to go since he hadn't started work yet. Of course, then A got sick. Really, really sick. I ended up having to take him to the doctor even though my health insurance hasn't kicked in yet (I didn't realize you had a 30 day wait after starting a new job, the things you learn when you separate from the military!). It was about $150 for the visit + the drugs, but it was so worth it because he was really starting to scare me (he had a sinus infection, so it was a good thing I decided to take him). Anyway, we may have another house lined up, but I'm not going to say anything this time until we're actually in the house because I don't want to jinx anything! Hopefully I'll have some good news soon.
