we're home!

We made it to our new home in NC yesterday. We had a fabulous time in Alabama seeing my aunts and cousins and then our family reunion on Marshall's side in Georgia. Beautiful country and beautiful people.

Marshall signed for our new home yesterday and I got to see it today. We've been juggling naps and a dog and all that goes with that, so I got to see the house it! It will feel like home in no time. Neighbors have already come to say hi and my friend Amy dropped off a pack and play for Silas to use at the house while we paint and get ready for our goods.

I cleaned today while Marshall did Army stuff, though it's the cleanest place I've ever moved in to.

Our plan is to get cell phones this afternoon and go back to the house and tape it off for paint. I'm giddy with excitement about paint, though it's a little stressful. Every time poor Marshall asks about colors I tell him I can't think about that yet. So many choices. (We did get cell phones...I started this post earlier.) Great to be "connected" again.

Over 3300 miles in 24 days. It was a sweet time with our family and friends. I think my cord to upload pictures is in my big suitcase and as soon as that gets opened, I'll post some pictures.

Time for bed now, but wanted the 3 people still checking this thing to know how we are doing. Hopefully I'll be back to my normal posting soon....don't give up on me!

Love from North Cackalaka!

Happy Settling! If you guys plan to paint a lot (we do with every move), you might want to consider investing in a sprayer. :) We just got ours...after we'd already painted unfortunately - because we have to paint after we leave this house (I like color & this is a base house). It's so much nicer to buy a home & be able to leave your colors. Anyway...have fun picking your paint!!! I'm our official family tape girl, so I feel for whoever gets that job. :)
