We found a house!
Mark and I just got back from Maricopa. We put a little money down to hold a house for us until March. Get this...It's the same basic floorplan as the other one, except the loft is smaller because they put one more bedroom upstairs, so that means my scrapbook room would be downstairs in the den/bedroom. It's still a big room and has a unique shape to it, so it will be interesting to see how I set up in there. I don't like the flooring, blinds or appliances nearly as well as the first house, but at least it's the floorplan I like. There are other things I like better. My favorite thing is the huge walk in pantry. Love that! It is such a relief to know where we are going...I think that's the "nesting" instinct that us women have. I'm still really struggling with the idea of leaving here. At some point everyday I do cry. I'm leaving so many special people and things behind and it breaks my heart, but I have to try to be strong because I have LOTS of work ahead of me and I have to keep it together. Packing party anyone??? :o)
Last night for some unknown reason I let Mark talk me into riding up to Globe to eat at ElReys again. He must have some special power of persuasion over me. It's 72 miles each way and I FROZE my butt clean off....well not OFF because I checked in the mirror and it's still there, but it was numb and I couldn't feel it. Those mountain passes are so dang cold on a motorcycle. After we got there and we had time to eat and defrost I decided heck with how I look...I'm putting on the super suit...aka super fat suit! Even if you are a skinny toothpick girl (which I'm not) you will not look good in this thing...so NOT flattering! It's all about the layers. I was wearing...
belaclava (sp?)- face smotherer
and the super fat suit
All this equals one warm, but not attractive girl on the back of the bike. :o)
I hope to catch up on everyone's blogs this weekend. Right now we are going out to celebrate Kyle's birthday. Thank you for all his birthday wishes!
