I have been MIA for a few days...
We closed on our house last Thursday!! We had two Relay for Life talent shows at school that Thursday evening (I was in a skit and the emcee) so we didn't get home till around 9:30. The next night we worked some in the house, but our gas wasn't turned on yet so we stayed the night at my parents. I had school (class for my Specialist's in TN) Saturday morning, so I woke up around 4:45 am and headed that way. I returned home around 4 pm and took a much needed nap in my new bed while Jon and his dad worked around the house. We had dinner with my parents at Texas Roadhouse and worked some more in the house. We ended up staying the night with my parents again because we didn't have our church clothes.
After church on Sunday we headed to Dahlonega for LAURA'S first bridal shower!! YAY!! It was such a great turnout and she really liked the gift I got her- score! We headed home around 5:30 and worked some more on the house. My sister and parents came over and were a major help getting the kitchen together for me. I'm so thankful for the help of our friends and family!!
I started to feel bad on Sunday afternoon so I took Monday off work. I'm pretty certain I have a sinus infection. :( Oh well....it was nice to be able to spend the entire day yesterday shopping with my mom. She has GREAT taste and I enjoyed spending time with her. I was finally able to use many of the gift cards from our wedding, and of course I had to hit up Costco to get us going with all the necessities. Still, it was exhausting, and Jon and I got another load from my parents' house last night at around 10. We haven't been in bed before 12:30 for the past week. I know that's not that bad, but we have been moving, lifting, unpacking, more lifting, and still waking up normal time for work and church. We are both incredibly exhausted.
This week has made me appreciate my amazing husband even more! He has been such a trooper. And who knew we had this much stuff? We have already taken about 6 or 7 BIG trailer loads!!
Sunday night was our first night in the new house. It feels like home already.
So, here I am....
Exhausted, sick, and just absolutely worn down... but beyond EXCITED about our new home!!!!! It is turning out BEAUTIFUL and I can't wait to post pictures....we're getting there! Of course there's still a lot to do, but I am TRYING (super hard for me- I'm an ALL or nothing person and I like everything to be done immediately!) to do little by little. And of course, I can't wait to get back to blogging!! Is that sad that I miss it?? Haha! Writing is my outlet...and blogging makes me happy. :)
We are SO blessed.
