Settling in

We're so excited to be in our new house! There were a few issues that came up that almost delayed our closing, but everything ended up working out just fine. We stayed up until midnight last night working on stuff inside and finally made ourselves sleep. So far today, Josh spent 8 hours mowing the lawn while I scrubbed 2 bathrooms and the laundry room. We already need a trip to Lowe’s and Walmart. Maybe we'll get a box or two unpacked tomorrow!
I think Titus likes this new house already. When we were moving the canoe last night, Titus started prancing around the front yard like he knew he was home. He enjoys chasing grasshoppers outside and already understands that it is much cooler if he stays downstairs instead of upstairs when he's inside.
Oh yeah- during our first night in our new home we already had 2 guests: a brown recluse spider in the kitchen sink and a scorpion in the bathroom sink. I wonder what we'll find tonight! Gotta love country livin'!

YEA! I'm glad you were able to move in with minimal issues. Happy to hear Titus is settling in. What's up with the poisonous creatures!?! I'd be screaming like a big girl!! I hope the rest of your move-in goes well!!

It sounds like you guys are having fun. Just the idea of getting to move into a new house and go to Home Depot and all that fun stuff sounds great. Plus you get to work on a college campus and I love the newness and freshness of college in the fall. It makes me want to go to Wal-Mart and buy storage bins and notebooks. I'm totally jealous. Have fun!
