Small Bumps

Well, it couldn't all be smooth sailing! Every available minute we have (that we aren't falling asleep) we have been spending packing, cleaning, and moving over small loads to the new place. We spent most of Saturday at the house, playing, cleaning, unpacking, and waiting for the Sears people to bring the new appliances.

In enters the first kink. The dryer was too wide. Ugg. The hole is 29 inches, the dryer is 29 inches. Ain't gonna happen. So we have to call Sears, pick out a new set (I want a matching pair), and then this week go back to the house and wait for an exchange. The ones we picked out by hunting online are a little bit nicer so they come in different colors. Oh, how I want the teal set!!! But, it costs a little more for them, then the regular white. We are crunching the numbers to see if we can afford the teal. If we got them we wouldn't get another set until, well, they died! So we shall see!

The next, and most annoying issue. The fleas. In the apartment it was roaches, now in the house it is fleas. There aren't any inside, but Keith took the kids out back to check out the yard, and BAM! Fleas. Everywhere. They went in the storage shed out back, and Keith said he could see the ground hopping. Yummy. At any rate, we are going to have to do SOMETHING about them, before the kids can play out there. Luckily for now they are happy running and screaming through the house.

Aww, well. It all been crazy, and tons of fun. I keep meaning to take more pictures of the front of the house. I will this week for sure! I can't believe we are moving to a house!!

Oh, yeah, and the phone jack in my bedroom, which is my office, is broken. Gotta go call AT&T...

Congrats on moving into the house! You guys have definitely paid your time apartments. Good luck on working out your little kinks. Glad to hear they are just little kinks and not big bad ones!

Try bombing the shed, and I believe there is a spray or powder you can put on the lawn. The kids could not go outside until it was dissipated but that shouldn't take to long. I think you sprinkle it on, leave it for a while and then water the lawn. Good luck. Love. Dad

I agree with my Uncle, bomb the shed and then use the stuff for the lawn. Do that as soon as possible so they don't get in the house!

Don't get the teal washer and dryer. You'll get sick of the color after awhile and plus, appliances are not made to last longer than five years nowadays. Use the money towards a vacation or something just for you!

Great suggestion from Susan. Nice to see some good advice from a non-parental unit. Go with white -- we've had that for years and it goes with everything and every house. Hey, another couple of years like this and it could be our old dad in the Walmart parking lot.

Keep your spirits up- bomb the shed and talk to an exterminator about the back yard. And get the white washer and dryer. I don't think you'll get sick of the teal, but you have to think about what else you could do with that 140 extra bucks....

You found a beautiful home and I know it will all come together for you!

Keep on prayin', girl!!!!

Lots of hugs!
