Lately I've Been Thinkin'

Hidey ho!  It seems like everyone is updating their blogs today, so I'll jump on the bandwagon.

Not a lot has been happening around these parts, at least not really.  We're all moved in to our new place, and pretty much everything is unpacked.  It still doesn't feel at all like our home though, partly, I think, because:

A. There is nothing hanging on any of the walls (I'm kind of waiting for either inspiration or money to paint a couple of the rooms so they aren't hideously brown)

B. We don't have anywhere to sit.  Actually, we have a deskchair and a plastic tub that we use to sit around the dinner table.  That's it.

C. Sam and I are never home at the same time.  We see each other in the morning for an hour or two before I head to work, and occasionally, if I finish at work early, for a few minutes before he heads out the door for his night shift.  His schedule becomes more human next week though, so hopefully that will get better soon.

Anyway.  So the house isn't really news, plus it's boring.

But last week we were able to take a trip out to Connecticut one last time before Sam's parents make the move to Utah.  We had a lot of fun out there, but it was really, really hot.  We had a few parties and a lot of guests and everything was totally cray-cray, but it was fun.  I'll miss being able to visit the east coast sometimes, but it'll be nice for Sam's parents to be close for the time remaining we have in Utah.

Also, my parents moved up here!  I'm okay with it as long as I don't think about growing up in a house that no longer belongs to anyone.  But I have the memories, and that's enough.  Plus, I'm really happy that my parents get to be up here all the time.  It's like a party 24/7 (not really, but you know).  Hopefully their house will be built by Christmas, so they can move out of my Grandparents' basement and things will be more normal.  But for now, I'm just excited to have them here :)

Hopefully there will be more exciting stuff the next time I blog.  Until then, here is a smattering of photos I took while we were our visiting last week:

Whoa you guys are gonna have all kinds of family in Utah! In other news, I barely learned the meaning of "cray" about a month ago. Glad I learned it in time for your post.


Melissa Kunz said... do have a reason to visit the east coast :) haha kidding but you know we would love to have you guys if you ever journey this way.

i feel the same way about our house except all our walls are white and give me a headache as i stare at them day after day trying to decide what to do with them. oh, the perils of decorating! we need to share pics with each other once we get things in place!
