Day 7, Week 1

We did it!  We made it through our first week.  Has it really only been a week?  It feels like the longest week ever!  I’m sure once I start moving in and once school gets started I’ll feel too darn busy and the time will start passing more quickly.

Today I am buying a fridge.  I went all the way into town to meet with the only person who called me back; the fridge is nice, a little old, but in great shape.  On my way in to see it I got a call back from someone near home that had a fridge listed.  I went and saw that one too.  It’s newer than the one in town and the same price… I decided to go with that one because it’s only a couple miles away and I’m having a friend help me move it.  This evening we’ll go over, pick it up, and put it in my new place! 

Things just keep coming together… this worries me a little.  It seems that every time things come together something goes wrong and everything falls apart.  Yes, this is a bit pessimistic, but after the last few times things have fallen in place I have the “this is too good to be true” mentality.  You know though, even the things I thought went “wrong” worked out for the best.  When I moved to Colorado and that place fell through I got to go live with my hubby in Georgia… if I had stayed in Nevada I never would have been able to spend those three months with him or see so much of the country!  So while it felt like things “fell apart” at the time, they actually worked out better than I could have imagined to begin with.  I guess that’s true with a lot of things in my life.  See, I just talked myself into thinking positively instead of pessimistically.  Aren’t you proud of me?
My son sat down to eat lunch.  He had been telling me how hungry he was.  After he started eating he looked over at me sitting next to him and said “I’m hungry like a wolf.”  Of course the song started playing in my head.  He said, “you know that song, from Shrek?  Can we have a Shrek marathon?”  So he finished eating and I let him start watching Shrek.

We took a break in between the Shrek movies.  The first break we took a walk around the block (the long way).  It was such a beautiful day and it was so nice to be outside.  My body is telling me it needs more sunlight and warmth.

We got the fridge and got it into the house.  It’s kind of stinky so I left it open (I’m starting to wonder if that was really a good idea… will the house smell rotten when I get over there tomorrow?).  When I go over tomorrow I’ll just bleach the whole thing to kill anything that may have been left over.

I watched more of The Pretender this evening.  I like the story-line mostly, but the acting isn’t so fantastic.  Everything seems forced and recited.  I only decided to re-watch the series because it’s been so long and I saw there was a movie out that I never watched.  The movie came out when the series was over, so I’m interested to see if it’s better than the series.

Our son is excited to go work on the house tomorrow.  I told him I’d clean up his room first and then we’d go get all his old toys out of storage so he could go through them and decide what he wanted to keep.  He is so excited about going through his toys.  It’ll be interesting to see what he decides to keep.
Tonight when I read his bed-time book I decided it would be fun to do different voices.  We read “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” again. 

Tonight I miss you so much.  Our son crawled up on the couch and cuddled with me for quite some time, he was so cozy.  I am so glad we had all that time with you to cuddle with you before you left.  Two weeks didn’t seem like a lot (especially with that last week only being the evenings)… but it was so much more than we thought we were going to get.

I am glad I wrote most of this up earlier.  I am sleepy and I’m going to bed a bit earlier tonight.  It seems no matter what time I go to sleep I’m always up around 6 am, just in time to see the pink sky out the window.  I love sunrise… the rises and sets have been so pretty this week and I feel a bit sad that I haven’t taken any photographs.  But now I need to sleep.
