More house pictures...

Our inspection is Monday... We are trying to get as much done next week before we leave for two weeks to go to Europe. Dining Room right off the front entry hall. Guest Bathroom. This is the only room we will need to paint... It's a golf themed baby room that will become Reid's study. Master Bath - we are hoping to have a glass door installed for the shower. Master Bedroom. Across the hall there is another room that will be the guest room.

An Early Birthday Present!

Well, I have some exciting news... We have a contract on a house here in Dallas! We should close at the beginning of November, leaving us plenty of time to get settled before Thanksgiving. Who am I kidding. Christmas. HA! It has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. Just enough room to start (and raise) a little family... Of all the floor plans we looked at this one was by far the best layout for us. We loved the charm of an older home, but prefered something that had already been remodeled. Reid is gone too much for us to be able to spend time remodeling a house. Yikes! These are two of my favorite rooms (its the seller's furniture)! The kitchen overlooks the family room. I love how cozy it feels! Another plus, the refrigerator is ours! And the cabinet hardware in the kitchen are forks, spoons, and knives -So stinkin' cute! Off the kitchen and family room is a sunroom that we will use as a breakfast room and probably a den until we have kids. Then it will be the playroom. H

So you don't worry...

Maybe you aren't worried, but if I don't post a new blog entry soon Reid will start to worry about me. Then, I'll get defensive and self-conscious and really won't have anything to blog about. The truth is, actually, I have a lot I could blog about. I have some posts I am working on, but they are all heavy and serious and I need something light right now. So, since this is my blog I am about to post the most random assortment of "things that I've been thinking lately." Ready for some light hearted random? 1. My first week in Little Rock my dad and I were trying to find a place to eat dinner that was both close to the nursing home and Baskin Robbin's. We passed a place called Enterprise. My dad asked if I had heard good things about that new restaurant because it always had tons of cars out front. "Dad, Enterprise is a car rental company." People, if you hang around long enough you will learn I can't make this kind of stuff up. 2. Danc

Saying "Goodnight"

It has become a nightly ritual for my dad to take my mom ice cream before bedtime at the nursing home. Since coming to LR I have joined him in this nightly ritual. It is one that I look forward to and dread at the same time. I look forward to it because it seems to be the time of day when we get my mom to laugh the hardest - big belly laughs that give us that glimse of her peronality. The saddest part, the part that I dread, is leaving to go home without her. Every night I'm reminded that this is where life has brought us. My mom has Alzheimer's. She will continue to decline. Someday we will lose her. But we have almost every night until then to say, "Goodnight." -- Post From My iPhone

Forwarded Email of Random Thoughts

My friend Kirstin sent this to me. I only posted my favorites, and left out the crude wording (which in some cases takes some of the humor away, oh well). Hope you find it as entertaining as I did! Random thoughts from people 25-35 years old... -I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option. -Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. -Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk. -That's enough, Nickelback. -I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. -Is
