Next Stop, Four Zits!

I guess I should explain that "Four Zits" is what Nathan called Fort Smith the first time I mentioned it to him. He can say it correctly, but where's the fun in that?

Anyway, since I'm writing this from the library and our computer will be loaded onto a gigantic U-Haul sometime tomorrow, I expect this will be my last post before we move. I'll do my best to make lots of blog-suitable pictures of the move itself.

I am so thankful for a husband who doesn't mind doing all of the packing. And most of the loading. And a good portion of the unpacking. He's a keeper!

Anyway, TTFN!

It's Getting Closer!

Moving Day is fast approaching. If everything goes according to plan (when does that ever happen?), we will be pulling out of the parking lot at Sunlake Apartments one last time (hurrah!) this coming Tuesday. The next day, we'll be moving into this house:

Words cannot express how happy I am to be moving out of this cramped apartment and into an actual house again. Our neighbors here have actually been quite wonderful, but there's just something about being able to hear your neighbor use the bathroom that just doesn't sit well with me. *shudder*

And I know a couple of kids that are going to love having a back yard to roam in.

Nathan got especially excited when he saw the motorized toy Jeep in the backyard. I have tried to explain that it doesn't come with the house, but I bet he'll still be looking for it when he gets there.

I'll save the inside pictures to use as "befores." The owner is letting us paint and such inside, and I am beside myself with excitement over getting to decorate my own place again! A couple of days ago at WalMart, I bought this fabric:

I bought it simply because it makes me smile. :) The best part? The striped one is called Lulu's Lounge. I love it! I'm planning to use it to make curtains in my new laundry room. Note the upholstery tacks. I have become a HUGE fan of The Nester and her window mistreatments. If you haven't discovered her for yourself, go there NOW!!! I love her motto: it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.

Gotta go! There's lots left to be done!
