Phew-what a week! We have had a lot of firsts in our house this week on top of the continued unpacking. I finally got some pictures hung and decorated a little in the living room and dining room. Pat on the back for me. I keep putting unpacking off because I don't think this is really real. We can't own a house. We can't have our own appliances. We can't have neighbors that are so scared of our dog that they are putting up a new fence at not cost to us so that they won't be frightened by his huge head whenever they get in their car...I digress.
So here are our exciting firsts:
I got my first cold/virus/sickness of the year. Yippee! It was horrible. I hadn't felt that bad in a long time. Luckily this was a three day weekend so Stu was here to help.
I got my first BRAND NEW appliance! Our oven came in and it is bea-u-ti-ful! Too bad it's not hooked up yet.. (hint hint honey)
We had our first major homeowner crisis-our AC went out. Apparently a gecko thought it would be pleasant to crawl into the circuit board and electrocute himself and in the process fry our unit. Nice little guy. Luckily we happened to have a cold front this weekend so we were able to manage with windows open and fans on high from Friday till Monday. Don't problems always happen on the weekend??
We got our first electric bill. I'll leave it at that.
We got our first mortgage payment coupon/bill. Gulp.
Tyson went peepee in the potty!!!!! Woo hoo!! It was the greatest thing in the world. Too bad it hasn't been repeated, but at least there is hope that it will happen again. Plus the gum balls that we bought last night are really making him crazy, but he can't have one till he uses the big-boy potty.
We had our first house guest! Well, I guess Stuart's grandparents were our first. No, I guess Stuart's dad was our first when he helped us move. Either way, one of my greatest friends, Laura came into town to see her nephews. Aunt Lala as we affectionately call her got to play and see the boys in action. Fun fun!

So glad you are getting settled in your new house. It must be so much fun knowing it's all your own! You'll have to post pictures of the finished product. Can't wait to see it all done!
