Our New Home

Provided nothing goes wrong between now and the close date on Dec. 16th, we get to move in on Dec. 30th. Thanks to all of you and your prayers. They mean so much and God has certainly answered! Posted by Picasa

The Kids' Table at Thanksgiving


They all did great until a couple of bees showed up to enjoy the lunch. They all ended up on the tile of my kitchen floor! Posted by Picasa

Free To Good Home!


The hardest thing about our move to Dallas is that we have to leave our sweet dog behind. I am trying to find her a good home. The thought of sending her to a place where they will euthanize her if she isn't adopted in time just breaks my heart, but we are running out of time. So if you you know of anyone who would love to have a sweet heart of a dog, please pass on the following description:

Name: Nasdaq, but I call her Nazzers

Breed: Blue Heeler (aka:Austrailian Cattle Dog)

Space Needed: She does need a little running room, but mostly thinks she is human and spends most of the time inside.

Care: She has all updated shots, had been spayed/neutered, house broken, doesn't chew on your good things

Age: Six yrs

Other notes of interest: She is a sweet dog who does get excited when new people arrive. She will absolutely let you know when a someone is at the door or loitering around your home. (Great guard dog). She loves to be loved and does need someone who will play with her--even a kid will do. She is great with kids and babies. Please let me know if you know of anyone who is interested.

Harder than I Thought

Things are changing at a break-neck pace in my world. The house is sold, we could be in contract on another by tomorrow. We will have to store our stuff until after the first of the year when we could move into the house and live at my parent's home until then. We have started packing even though I have 15 people coming over for Thanksgiving on Thursday.

I don't think it really hit me until this weekend. I walked Reia down to the corner of the street and met up with Katharine's mom to pass her off. It was just so beautiful outside. Gorgeous weather, quite neighborhood and I thought about the fact that we have less than a month before we won't be able to do this anymore.

Then Saturday hit. Michelle (another good friend of mine with her house on the market) finished packing her house, the movers came and they were gone. I won't walk to her house anymore either. Well, I guess I could. But I suppose I would look pretty silly just standing at her door with no one home. I cried pretty good over that. Glad we both have free long distance. We can still talk on the phone like nothing has changed--even though it has.

So, between now and December 12th (the day we have to be out), it will just get worse. Everyone in and out of town for the holidays. We'll keep packing and be gone. Just like that.

Where in the World is Robin Storch

Wow, I have not only not posted in a while, I haven't checked my bloglines in what seems like foever. So, I just thought I would let you guys know I am indeed still alive. The big news is that we have a contract on the house. Yeah!!! But, we have no place to live when we have to move. Boooooo. (Homestar Runner reference for those of you who get him.)

It is an answered prayer and thanks to all of you who have been praying for us and the sell of the house. Today is the last day of the option period where the buyers can back out for any reason, and I have been out looking for a house like a mad woman. I have spent most of my time on the internet on Realtor.com or related sites.

Plus, we had unexpected out of town guests last week. I was so happy to have them here and have several humorous stories to share, but that will have to wait!

So, all of that to say--if I don't post until after Thanksgiving--ya'll have a great turkey!

Today is Reese's First Birthday

The general birthday rule is you get to do what you want within reason. It is your day! So, Reese has chosen to play in the dryer and garage all morning. Posted by Picasa

The Pink Dragon and Little Bunny



We had a great time trick or treating last night. Reia, who was supposed to go a s a Hi-5 person, ended up as a pink dragon at the last minute. That's what I get for walking into The Children's Place at 4 p.m. when the costumes went half off! Now we have tons of candy. I think I am just going to do what my sister in law does and let her eat what she wants for several days and then chunk the rest. Hopefully she won't wear a hole in her teeth from all the sugar. Posted by Picasa
