Good news and bad news...

Good news is we finally got our cable, internet, and telephone installed. Feel like a human being. Lightening fast internet, instead of trying to get mediocre service with linksys or going to panera bread to get online...... Both computers are up and running now. So no more sharing of my laptop......

Bad news....can't find my freaking card reader so that I can post pictures.....Isn't it ironic that all while I didn't have internet service the card was right on the computer .....now I can't find it. But, that's life. I guess that is God, saying "Dana are you nuts, your house is no where near done and you want to show it off.......LOL I don't care that is not finished yet, I just want all of you guys to see it .....before and when I get all decorated. To me it's beautiful unfinished......LOL

I am going to search high and low for my card reader.....since i lost my cords a long time ago, that hooks straight to the camera and then to the computer...

the boys room is awesome. At first I thought it was going to be freaky, because my son put all of his XRAYS on the wall (lets see two broken wrists, one broken collar bone, and a broke foot. He put white paper behind the exrays and then he has two black lights in his room, which makes the x-rays glow.....reallly cool. Then they have an energy ball, my mom spoils the boys to death. Their room looks like some type of fun house.....LOL. But really cool and really neat! Poor Jaree, her room is not nearly done, furniture is still not here and she's living out of boxes....but I really want to take my time and do a really prissy room for her. Fit for a princess. My room is still not totally done, most of my furniture is in there.....dh still hasn't brought up the nightstands and the headboard....but mostly everything is done. I am about 75 percent done unpacked.....I don't know where the boxes are coming from....LOL I think I am slow, but I swear I unpack about 5-10 boxes a day!!!!!

Why o why, do we hoard? I thought I had purged alot of stuff before I got here, but man o man am I throwing away even more stuff............ the question is why did I even pack this crap????LOL I must have been nuts.

I did not realize how much scrapbook stuff I had until I moved. Man o man, I still have boxes of stuff at my mom's and my dining room is almost full......LOL If I don't go scrapbook shopping in the next 10 years, I will still have tons of stuff....but that would never happen. YOu know us scrappers, we love to shop!!!!!
Speaking of shopping Its three things I cannot wait to get: Elsies new stuff, the new fancy pants acrylic stamps, and I am in the market for some more stamping up stamps, (my latest addiction, thanks to Ali E. lOL)

Guys, I am so in love with my new house and I know it may not be built from the ground nor does it have a gazillion rooms, but It is something that I love. I am so proud and I thank God, everyday that he has blessed us, to provide a HOME for our children. It has been less stress...I can do as I please, I don't have to ask for permission to change things in my home, I just love it! It's been along time coming. But, hey I am still young and I can enjoy it. NOw dh is about to buy a 2flat building....he is on a roll. His goal is to retire in 10 years and have his family living comfortably. We do not want to be rich, just comfortable......

I wished that you all could come over and play......LOL
I can't wait to get my room ready, I am going to host crops regularly.
Finally, I have something to be proud of......
KWIM?

I know you guys are probably sick of hearing about this house, but I am just sooooooo stoked!!!

LOL

It's still all brand new to me....

I LOVE IT!

Dana
