All Christmas stuff is put away and we got over the last batch of illnesses in time for the kids to start school last week. Colleen and Chris finished their antibiotics and Chris got over his skin infection (phew!).
Yesterday Ryan got sick. He’s had a temp for 2 days and he’s going to dr. today. I don’t feel great – hope I’m not coming down with it. Ironically my appt. for my migraines is Thursday so if I do get sick – good timing (as long as I’m not too sick to drive there!). Rog has been sick for 3 weeks (not in bed the whole time) and I’m trying to get him to the dr. It was not a bad time to be sick though as it’s the annual “no work” time at work – he hopes to have tons of work by next week as it looks like it’s piling up there to be assigned (he cleans as his own business the same office they assign work from).
What else? Yes, our older computer seems to have died – the one we got in 2000. I’m so glad we got this one (summer of 05) and managed to get everything transferred over, just about (it was acting up so I was worried and kept booting it for as long as it would stay booted and moved over the network). I tore it down and took downstairs to await someone having time to look at it that knows more than I do. I’m also getting my old computer back (the 1995 one) to set up for the kids downstairs.
After feeling temporarily very caught up after Christmas with everything neat and tidy, we brought like 30 boxes up here from the basement, garage, our old house, and Gayle’s. YIKES! I feel like I just moved in again. And there’s more coming. All the boxes from my mother’s have yet to come (17 huge rubbermaid bins, she says, plus massive amounts of bags), and also everything out of our attic at the other house, the shed, and probably 10-20 more boxes out of the main floor of the house over there.
I’m so glad we don’t have to do this again for YEARS!
going to do a few more dishes and maybe go lay down with Ryan for a while…..
I had the most bizarre dream last night! I live in Ohio, right? Well, last night I dreamt we had to move right away because my husband had a job transfer to work in Concord, NH. So we had to sell this house fast and go look in Concord. In the dream, I said, hey, this is cool, I can visit all my LJ friends in Derry.
So how close to Derry, NH is Concord, NH?
Isn’t the brain a strange thing?
dori, settling in and NOT wanting to move again anytime soon!
Check it out – I’ll have more…. making up for a lot of lost time with my missing camera card…
At new house – loving it, but dealing with a lot of little aggravations of older home… rewiring phone lines, etc. Finally on with my DSL! Can’t do the big summary page yet on our move, but look for it soon!
I did get lots of stuff done yesterday and DH helped me a lot. I sorted all the papers again in the living room and packed up more stuff. Sorted out several drawers in the bedroom and organized those. Threw out tons of stuff! And this morning I did some laundry and actually baked a cake. Not that I need to eat it — ha! — but I’m trying to use up all my boxed goods especially due to the danged moths we have that get into all of that stuff. I’m not taking ANY of them with me…. the boxed goods (and hopefully not the moths, either!)
Wanted to post about two autism related things–
Just posted pics there and as you can see directly posted one from there. Now, I wonder if you can make the image smaller and post on it too at the bottom or top? Will have to play.
I think I may like that better than coppermine, but don’t know if it will hold as much. i see it can do a slideshow with tags…..
but, back to a break – no more playing until we move!
a LITTLE more news — house is through underwriting YIPPEE!!
Now they’re just waiting on the house insurance and title for the schedule of the closing!!
I spent this morning taking some pictures of the house here as some moms on this moms group I’m on wanted to see it. They’re actually doing a video but I don’t know if I’ll have time to do that before we move. So I took a bunch of new pictures here http://www.criscollrj.com/photos/thumbnails.php?album=12 . I am a little aggravated though, with coppermine – I may eventually try and find a new picture site. I get aggravated because I named all the pictures about you can’t see the names and descriptions when you run the slideshow. What good is that? And I don’t know how to change the order either. Oh well…. sigh. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS?
Yuck – cold. Drip. Sneeze. That’s all I’ll say about that.
Ryan is off now, and I had some lunch – leftover pork and potatoes and sauerkraut. I am going to go off and do the pantry. I must do that today. I did pack up the linen closet yesterday and did the dishes. Yeah me!
I just have to go to bank and then go grocery shopping. I was supposed to go with him to the bank after speech but I just realized I forgot to. I also have to pick up Chris’s pills. So I’ll have a busy time with Doreen! I think we’ll just go to Aldi’s.
Day four now of underwriting AGAIN – I have never waited this long before at one time. Last time it went through underwriting in 2 hours. The time before, 3 days. I may have to call them soon. There is absolutely nothing new on the web site of our account since Oct. 6.
I have to run now — i’ll probably be on a posting break for quite a while. I have too much to do and have been on the computer too much.
I write my good friend EVERY DAY so here’s the update I gave her. I STILL haven’t packed my linen closet….
email to friend that updates…
