Long time no blog, Blog.
I meant to.
I started to.
And then this came up or that came up, and, well, that’s how it goes.
But I’m here now. I’m here and I’m writing (about my simple little life).
Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the East Coast, and as a result, I get to hang out with my husband for the WHOLE WEEK! You see, he was scheduled to be at a conference in DC from Sunday night until Wednesday night, but as a result of the storm and the rising tides and the flooding in below-sea-level-DC, the conference was cancelled.
I kid you not, he was walking out the door to begin his drive when he received the magical text message telling him to stay home.
Yes, I’m beyond crazy about my husband, but we’re not so attached that we can’t be in different cities for a few days. In fact, I think it’s good for us to spend some time apart. However, I prefer being the one to go away. When he’s gone, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m afraid to go to sleep. Despite the uber-safe neighborhood, the giant pit-bull mix, the locks and the alarm system, I’m scared shitless to sleep alone in my house.
So I’m glad he’s here.
I have no new photos of the under-construction house to share. Things are happening, but they’re boring things. We have duct work and gas lines and the plumbing is in, but it’s not really exciting. I mean it is exciting, it totally is, but the pictures aren’t really all that moving.
We had our pre-drywall walk-through on Thursday and things are on track for us to be in there – drumroll please – in the second week of December!!
This week they’re scheduled to do insulation, then comes drywall, then comes – well, I don’t know. But something will definitely come after drywall! Floors? Doors? Cabinets? Our upgraded toilets?!?
(we really did get upgraded toilets, which was Allan’s choice, which I think is quite funny)
Today in our staff meeting, we went around the table and discussed holiday plans. Holy crapoli, it’s almost time for the holidays. In all of the house excitement, we took our eye off of the ball and may not meet our Christmas goal. What’s our Christmas goal, you ask? Our goal every year is to be totally finished with our Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving, leaving us with no godly reason to go anywhere near a mall or shopping center unless we want to.
And sometimes we want to. Sales! Hello!
