Well it's been a while, but the house saga continued since my last post. Continued until today, that is.
We closed on our house today. It's not the house we were under contract on when I last posted, we had to give up on that one, and there were a few more in between. But we've found a good house and we're excited to move in.
We're doing some painting this weekend and moving next weekend.
If any of you are bored either of those 2 weekends, just come on over :)
So, my quarter century birthday was awesome. David, you rocked it! Thank you so much for everything!
My birthday started off with receiving flowers from my sweet hubby at work on Friday; a beautiful bouquet of bright and colorful daisies.
Then on Sat, after spending some time looking at a few houses, we went to Worlds of Fun. And my awesome hubby, who pretty much hates roller coasters, rode 3 of the 4 roller coasters with me. What a guy, huh?!
After going home to clean up, he took me to dinner at Hibachi, a Japanese Steakhouse on the Plaza. That was my first time at a Japanese Steakhouse and I loved it. The food was great and those guys can do some crazy things with knives :)
For my gift, he got me a lovely Citizen watch and concert tickets for Brandi Carlile.
Then today my parents came up, went to church with us, then took us to lunch. They even helped me look at houses this afternoon.
I can't imagine a better birthday. The bar is set pretty high for all future celebrations. ;)
Well, today is my last day at Truman. It sure will feel weird when I walk out of here, knowing that I'll never see these people again.
But the new job is a great opportunity and I'm looking forward to it. The 15 min drive sure will be a nice change.
Some of you may remember me mentioning a cyst on my foot a few months ago . . .
Well it came back :(
I just got done having it sucked out and getting a cortisone shot. So now my foot hurts VERY much and is throbbing. Unfortunately I'm still at work and am trying to figure out a way to finish my shift. The cold from an ice pack helps, but the pressure of the ice pack pushing against the foot makes it feel worse.
Somehow, I'm going to have to get my shoe back on and drive myself home . . .
Boy July went by fast! Since today is Aug 1, that means that there are:
5 days til we leave for Minneapolis, just a short vaca
16 days til I start my new job
22 days til my bday
_?_ days til we get our house--kinda wishing I knew more about that one, but it's possible that we could get it by the end of the month
Happy August . . .
