Well, since it's just me again, I'm turning up the stereo while I clean up around here.

Anyone feel like coming to help me pack up my house? I'm tired of wrapping & boxing stuff!!! I've been up since 5 this morning & haven't gotten much of anything done. I have drank 2 pots of coffee though. I wish I could find a pic of our new house!! I want to show it to y'all!!

Tell him, luvs. He may know he's right, but you need to acknowledge it. Really.

Crewsk! I'll be right over after I get some packing tape, styrofoam peanuts and a bunch of newspaper.

PS - if you're packing plates, put a paper plate between each one and they will not break!

See ya later - gotta go do the gym thing

Here's the house. It's not a very clear pic, but it's all I could find. Jkath, I'm actually planning on packing my dishes with my towels & stuff between them. I'll keep the paper plate idea in mind too. Thanks!!

I love it, crewsk--it's adorable! My house is the same colors! I especially like the big front porch. It looks like you'll have lots of room for gardening, too! I'm really happy for you!

Thanks! The front porch really isin't all that big, it's rather narrow but on the left side there is a pretty good size porch. I'm going to have to invest in some fire ant killer before I do much of anything in the yard though. Those little things are everywhere!! After talking to some of the neighbors, they are having a tough time with them this year too.

I've never had to deal with fire ants--thank heavens! It looks like you have a nice sized lot for being in a sub-division. That's the one complaint I have about our house. The neighbors on either side are just too close for comfort some days!

Does this mean we no longer get to talk about Norris? What town are you moving to?

We delt with fire ants at our last house. I found out the hard way that we had them in the front yard & couldn't wear shoes for about a week. It is a nice sized lot, that was the one thing I looked at before deciding on this house. I want neighbors as long as they aren't sitting right on top of us. Nah, we can still talk about Norris. I'll be coming back to visit with some of our neighbors quite frequently I guess. We're moving back to Liberty. We lived there for about 6 years. It's bigger than Norris & everyone wears pants (unless you get lucky enough to be in Family Dollar when the town exhibitionist decides to try on clothes in the middle of the store )! TC won't have to change schools either.

Crewsk, that house suits you so well! It is really adorable. I'm so happy to hear that TC will be in the same school too - that's such an important factor!

Is that a little tree in the front, on the left? If so, what type is it?
Are there any pre-established gardens?
