Construction - Week 6

Is it really week six already? I am so hoping that I get a definite closing date from Drees Homes soon! As you can see I got new pictures! And yes, what can I say, I begged again. I was in withdrawal and needed pictures! I know Ginger is busy so I try to keep my whining to eight day intervals, LOL! Apparently it has rained a lot and so there is not so much going on. They have been finishing up drywall and exterior trim and as you can see, the driveway and walkway are in. I'm not sure, but it looks like they are waiting to put in the walkway that will go all the way down to the back double door in the basement. Ginger, you are a doll! You know how much these mean to me. You never told me though, how is your move going?

So many things have happened since my last post, most of it to do with the move of course. I can't wait for the move to be over or to be moving into the new house, yet I could wait forever to leave my son and friends behind. Some things are more fun than others to talk about so here goes.

I did get to go to a Hilltop Crop in Ruskin last Saturday and had a lot of fun despite the fact that I got so many phone calls from movers and had to leave for a couple of hours to meet my son who needed to pick up my cat Nuku. It was good to be able to work on the baby book for the next little nephew to grace our lives. I'm really trying hard to make sure that I have as much done as possible so that once he is born and I am in Kentucky having fun unpacking, I'll be able to put the finishing touches to the album quickly and get it into his parent's hands in Alaska ASAP! After all it has calendar pages to track every day of the first year of his life! They can hardly do that if they don't have the book!

I must admit that I was hoping that Britten could join me and Sharon in Ruskin again, but unfortunately it wasn't to be. Britten is the mother of twin toddlers and I know she is kept very busy! Britten if you read this, Sharon, Alicia and I will be going to the crop in Sarasota this Saturday! Can you sneak out? I also missed having Summer there. Summer and her family were blessed with the return of her husband from serving overseas. Summer I am glad that he is home safe and sad that you now live far away! Please thank your husband for his service!

Monday POD or rather SAM number 3 was filled and will be picked up tomorrow. I believe that the last time the garage was this empty was 3 years ago. I'm still working on the best possible solution for the remaining furniture! A couple of companies are sending people over tomorrow and Thursday to give me estimates.

The house is for rent and I sure hope someone visits and falls in love with it soon!

Janie took me out for lunch today as a belated Birthday gift. Over the last few weeks one or the other of us was always out of town or just getting back or getting ready to leave! Thanks Janie! Spending time with you today was just what I needed!

Hi MC! Boy was I surprised to see my name mentioned in your blog! LOL! The Ruskin crop was just not to be this month...and it looks like I'm not going to make it to Sarasota either. I'm sorry I'm missing out on the fun. Hopefully May will be a better month for scrapping for me! The house looks great!!!
