ramblings of a displaced gal

We finally closed on our house last week! Glory Glory Halleluja. And we are still renting out our condo which makes us land lords too!

Renovations have begun on our house, and because I dropped the ball, we didn't take any 'before' pictures before the massive demolition on Saturday. I am actually really really sad about that.

It is going to be a lot of work but we are really excited. I just love the house and I know it has such great potential, I know we can make it really cute inside. Every time I go by I love it more and more...which is kind of funny because it's looking worse and worse since we have ripped carpet up and sledge-hammered walls etc. I want it move-in ready by July 10th. Aaron says that is wishful thinking but he thinks it should be ready by July 17th. If we haven't moved in by July 24th I will cry...and probably worse. Don't get me wrong, our fam we are staying with has actually been really great, but when it's time, it's time.

I am feeling serious withdrawls from not blogging but our USB cable for our camera is packed and this laptop doesn't have a memory card slot. And I think posts without pictures are lame.

Oh yeah...Kate turned one last week. WHAT?! Oh blog how I miss you and your all-encompassing power to document important events. Yes I have pictures. No I have no idea when they will ever make it on here. Sigh.

Where are you normal life? I miss you.

I'm still here I promise

Canada was real great.
High point: Too many to mention...okay I'll settle on ice cream with the fam at Milky Way...twice.
Low Point: when Finn tipped over on an umbrella stroller and got a fat lip after lots of blood and tears.
Lots of pictures to come....I've been lazy because I don't have my own computer to upload pictures to.
Still in Saratoga Springs. Things should be on schedule for closing on our house in Orem on June 10th but we will probably wait to move in until the end of the month while Aaron does some renovations. We are sooo ready to have our own yard and have already planted our garden! Let's hope something actually grows :)
