We moved!!

So we finally got moved into our new house, but I still have soem things to get from the old place.  Our view to the north has changed somewhat too, instead of seeing a cow herd & a cemetary, we now see a mule pasture and mountains.

I do have pictures of our new house (and of us doing the paint job) but until I find the cords to hook up the camera to download the pics... well you get the idea.  Our garage is about half full of boxes, the living room & kitchen are also both piled high as are the couches and along the walls in the entry way.

This morning I finished hooking up the computer; I had to have a man from the phone company come out here yesterday to figure out what was going on with my phone line and internet... everything works great now.  He said he wasn't going to charge me for the extra services needed because he totally spaced off the appointment I had made with him for last Saturday -- that was awfully nice to hear.

Well, it's time for me to get some food into Cole so he can get onto the Kindergarten bus; I think that I will microwave a couple of potatoes for Taw & I -- my Visiting Teaching companion/Relief Society President brought us over dinner on Monday night and also gave me a HUGE bag of potatoes (red skinned, yellow fleshed sweet-tasting potatoes when baked).

New tires

Yeeehaw!!!  I got new tires on my suburban today, and boy did it need them.  I think that the ones that were on it must have been the original tires...  anyhow the tires were cracked down in the treads and while there was stilll some tread on teh tires, there wasn't much.  In the snowstorm of this morning, I was sliding all over the road... but the snow has moved East, the sun is out & the sky is blue.  The snow is melting too, thank goodness.

I've been taking pics of our new house, I didn't do any before pics but I got some in-between & after shots.  However these won't be posted today as I'm jsut taking a short break from packing to check email & rest my[ sore & aching] feet (especially the left foot).  So the house is all painted inside except for the bathrooms, and it looks so big, bright & cheery -- if any of you come to visit, don't look too close or you might see our drips & spills.

Well, back to the packing... it sure is going slowly.  We've lived here for nearly 9 years, long enough to accumulate quite the collection of stuff!
