What's Up?

I was at a good friend's house for dinner last week and she made this awesome salad. I liked it so much I made it tonight for dinner. It was a Cobb Salad. Chris said he loved it. So thanks Kirsten for making the salad for me! Even the boys ate the hard boiled eggs! Sarah chowed down on the bacon, but who doesn't love crispy bacon! Mmmmmmmm gooooooood!

I started work for real today. Can't really believe that! The summer is almost gone!

I am in the process of still getting settled. Main floor is 90% there. Except for the boxes we keep bringing in to unpack! Upstairs is all done except for one box of clothes I won't be wearing anytime soon! The Play area still has about three boxes. That leaves the garage and basement. I am going to try to attempt a little nit everyday. The problem is, I can't move a lot of stuff because it is too heavy. So poor Chris gets stuck with a lot of the heavy work and me just bossing him around. Doesn't sound like too bad a deal....for me!:)

Tonight Chris is putting together the trampoline and organizing all the outside furniture. I think the mountain of boxes we have outside gets picked up Wednesday by the moving company. I can't wait until they are GONE!

Well it has been a very busy time for us! But we are happy to be home in Calgary!

Point form update:
  • our stuff didn't all fit on the truck (first person took up more than they expected)
  • painted our family room, laundry room, and Sarah's bedroom
  • unpacked for two days straight- I was thankful Chris was home to help!
  • went to Music Camp - had a great time! The kids especially!
  • back home to the unpacking, but as of today the kitchen, living room and dinning room are free of boxes!
  • we get a new land line number tomorrow sometime
  • our stuff that didn't make the load comes tomorrow as well
  • Chris is off to TO today
  • kids first day with the nanny is tomorrow

So much to do and not a lot of time to finish up! I have some pictures to post from some of our Eastern adventures. Just need to hook up the main computer and then I can upload some of them. Sorry for the delay in posting!
