I hope you guys are doing well. We are. Our stuff is still not here and no one seems to know where it is other than it is "in route". So, if you see a big moving truck filled with great fabric and our furniture can you please direct it to us here in San Angelo.
In the mean time we have been exploring our new little town. We went to Fort Concho the other day and looked around. It was pretty neat to see what this area used to be like. Stu and I have been having date nights since the kiddos are in VBS in the evening. Last night was a really fun one. We went to Leddys Boots last night and looked around. Holy cow. If you want some awesome boots and have about $2000 to spend this is the place to come. They have made boots for Elvis, and all the presidents (with the exception of the current one - and they will be not offering him any either ). They do fittings of your foot to make sure the boot is perfectly fit to your foot. You can select whatever leather you want....oh it is glorious. I wonder if I can make her a quilt for a set of boots....my new friend across the street is making her some paintings for some boots. After looking around the boot shop we went to a really neat little blues diner (Sealy Flats ) and listened to a fabulous little blues band and had fun dinner. We are having fun exploring San Angelo.
So without further ado.....here is our new house.
This is the boys' room.
Here is Emma's room.
This is the living room.
Here is our kitchen. I almost knocked myself out the other day on that tall counter. I have a big goose egg on my forehead....my 5 year old and I look alike in that matter. He is always running into things, I guess I am too.
Here is my sewing room! What do you think? Not bad, huh? I can't wait to get all set up. through that door is a massive utility / laundry room I never have to take down my ironing board!
- I have to register my business with them.
- For $250 I can rent the community center and teach classes, but I can't charge anything for the people who are taking the class.
- We can't hang flower baskets or anything else from the dwelling.
- We are responsible for getting rid of all the spiders and fire ants (and there are a zillion of both)
There were a bunch of other things that I can't remember....so I started asking questions. In a really rude manner. Unnecessary rudeness. I am not normally rude, so I can't control it when I set it free.
I demanded to know if I could have chickens. (I don't know where that came from. I have never had chicken before and really would have to do a great deal of research before beginning such an endeavor) The lady looked at me like I was a crazy person. My husband did too. I told her that chickens make great pets, they eat your rubbish, eat spiders and you can eat them and their babies when you feel like it. A fine pet. One you can eat.
I really couldn't believe what came out of my mouth. Moving insanity. Needless to say I am not allowed to have chickens. I think it is funny now. Funny and quite embarrassing. But I also think it may be the reason my truck is missing (payback for bad behavior on my part).
I hope you all have a great day and keep your eyes peeled for our moving truck. It is lost.
