Trey has been on leave since last Wednesday and it's coming to an end. I'm dreading him going back to work. Not only has it been beyond nice to have him around the house (the company and an extra set of hands? Sweet.), but I've also taken a little vacation for myself as well. Less of sticking to a schedule. I haven't been planning meals or cooking elaborate dinners. Not that anything I cook on a normal day is elaborate by any means, but things have just been more chill. And it's been nice. Waaaaah!
I'm so very excited about our move. We can't wait to be in our new house!! But the whole moving process? For the birds. Not my cup of tea. Couldn't I have just gone home to visit family and friends and come back when everything was done and set up nicely? Is that so much to ask? I did invite some friends over one day next week to come over and help me pack last minute stuff (read: almost everything). They must love me.. some are actually coming even after I warned them how disorganized I am. It's not my fault.. it's the ADD. I did bribe with wine and lunch. I'm not stupid.
Planning is in full force for the big first birthday. I've got the perfect theme/color scheme and I can't wait to get more details in place. I don't know that I will share much on here until afterwards, but who knows I may. I have a lot of work to do which I will be starting in FULL FORCE after the move. I'm excited. I have decorations to find/make, invitations to design and beg Jennifer to make, pick out pictures and songs to do a slide show with (oh yess that's happening and it's going to be my favorite part of the day), a cake to design and find someone to do... fun times!
Does anyone want to come visit us? I'm getting the itch for some visitors. Anyone? Bueller?
I have my pictures painstakingly organized on my computer (saved in folders going from year to month and then saved by date.. yeahh). I've been worried for like two years that it would crash and I'd lose everything. Seriously, I don't know that I would ever, EVER get over that. I've never done anything about it though.. until yesterday. We bought CD's to transfer them all to. Trey wants to then delete them off the computer to add space.. I would rather not. Three years of pics. Is it going to really clear that much up?
We have a Hail and Farewell (dining in event to welcome newcomers and wish well to people leaving the battalion) to go to tomorrow night at The Edge of Texas (little restaurant on the Texas/New Mexico border that we've been wanting to go to anyways.. yes we're that close to New Mexico.. it's not a long drive at all). I'm trying to find a babysitter, but we may have to take him with us. Normally it wouldn't be such a big deal, but it's his bedtime. I don't foresee fun times. I am looking forward to going though. It will be my first one!
