Is anybody still out there? (((((out there, out there, out there)))))
Man, has it been a week already?
I feel so lost and out of touch. I know, now, that I could never cut it on Big Brother or Survivor. One week without my connection to the outside world was close to torturous. I just found out this morning that Hilary conceded. Totally missed that. Yeah, yeah, I know they sell newspapers, but what fun would that be?
And the one thousand updates on my reader. Wow. I'll need a vacation just to catch up on you all.
But, thankfully, we are back in the land of the technologically dependent. Cable television, phone, and (drum roll, please) high speed internet. Sort of. I think they should call it highish speed kind of internet out here, but whatever. It's better than dial-up. Of course, my back is killing me having to stand at my dining room niche just to check my email because I can't even sneak into the study. It is locked my friends. Yes, locked. Something about keeping the kids out of it, but I know who he really meant. You can cut him some slack, though, because I am slowly taking over our shared closet and I'm squeezing him out of the laundry room as well. Oh, and I am so getting complete control over the tivo. Bye, Bye, Battlestar!
I have missed my old house. It's strange to wake up in another room, still, a week later. It makes me cry to go over there to pick up things. Yesterday, I just spent the afternoon there watching my good, old, Dire*TV and napping and enjoying it when I really should have been boxing up my winter clothes and craft supplies. It's just strange, like I feel like I'm cheating on that house with this one. Like I should apologize everytime I walk in that door.
This house, though, is awesome! Aside from the fact that the brand new microwave doesn't work and we have to wait here all day Saturday for the GE man to come and fix it, it's been great. The neighbors are really friendly, some even brought gifts! We actually know our next door neighbors names! After only a week. Did I mention there's a jacuzzi tub? Because, yippee! There's a jacuzzi tub.
I tried my hardest to get one last pretty picture at the old house.
Maybe we'll have better luck in this new house.
