Hi, Erika here. I'm tired of looking at "How to Lose a Teenager" so I thought I'd give you a brief update. Yes, the Little Miss is safely in the new house, in the new city. Furniture has arrived, but repairs are stilling being made and so nothing has really been unpacked, also the computer HAS NOT arrived yet, so we will have to continue to wait patiently for her re-emergence into cyberspace. Until then rest assured she is going crazy with all she has to do, AND missing us as much as we are missing her. At least that's what I tell myself.
You may now continue with your regularly scheduled web surfing.
Little Miss here, broadcasting live from Starbucks (a T-Mobile hotspot, costing me $6.00 for the first hour, $.10/minute thereafter so this will be brief as I've got ALOT of catching up to do). Thanks Erika (aka my favorite friend--just ask Brandy) for keeping blogworld up to date. Let's see...no naps for the kids for the past week and a half as we have either been on the road, hanging out at the beach with three other unruly children (wink, wink), living out of boxes, dealing with plumbing issues, drainage issues in the backyard, electrical issues, cable and home security issues...etc. But wait, there's more! Last night, my oldest woke up with a fever, blisters in her mouth, vomiting and the runs, then today my husband's radiator blew on his way home from work! Anyone like to join us? Feel free. We now have an extra bedroom and a loft (turned office). We may not be able to afford our mortgage after all this, but we're willing to either a) sell one of the munchkins or b) lease the spare bedroom. Right now, I'm voting for the first option. We can always make another one later.
I heard a country song on the radio on my way over here, and it was SOOO fitting..."if you're going through hell, keep on goin', don't slow down----you might get out 'fore the devil even knows you're there..." So as you can tell, I really can't stay in one place too long! Gotta keep goin'!
I'll be in touch as the cable company has PROMISED to come out to the house tomorrow!!! Yeah!!! It'll be like waking up on Christmas morning.
