Oh hey, remember blogs?


We're here!  Last week we left our little home in Utah and drove all the way out here to Ohio.  A thousand thanks to the friends and family who let us stay with them along the way.  I'd like to say it was a fun trip, but I think it's more honest to just say that it wasn't bad.  Actually, it was much better than I expected it to be.  But after three days of having pillows piled on my lap and virtually no leg room--not to mention Olivia throwing up within the first hour--, saying that the trip was fun would be just plain lying.  So I won't do that.  But the point is, we are here.

I cannot express in these little words how excited we are to be here.  We love love love our new place.  And we're having a blast being professional shoppers while we set up house.  Let's just say I have a vision.  We'll see how it turns out in the end.  :)

As for being back in action, I am sad to report that our internet won't be installed until Friday.  Until then, we have super limited internet time here at the public library.  And let me just say while we're on the topic--our public library's video section could give Netflix a run for its money.  $9/ month or free?  Hmm...

Okay, well I'm about to get kicked off.  See you all soon!

So happy you made it there!

I so know how the throwing up goes....We have had it 1 hour into the trip or after 20 hours in the car it happens 10 minutes before we get to our destination. It sucks no matter when it happens!

Have fun decorating!

Yeah - that's why I was surprised you were going to try moving with what only fits in the car, because even for us our car was FULL with just our suitcases and stuff. It was definitely an uncomfortable trip and I was so glad to finally arrive at Columbus at the end of it all.
Anyway - glad you are loving Westborough!
Don't you just love the library?!?! I get movies there all the time...it keeps me entertained. And they've also got a great kids movie section too. And also they have a baby/kids story/singing time you should check out. I don't know if they're done for the summer, but I think you can find the schedule online. See you on Sunday or Monday!

go to panera bread. i used to go when we were waiting for internet after we moved to ohio lat year and sometimes i would go at night after kids were asleep and just sit in the parking lot. or i would go during naptime when all the kids were asleep in the car. bonus: no time limit. if you go inside you can get some good food. you don't have to get out of the car if you don't want to. we didn't get internet for about a month after we moved.
