- I Need A Routine -
If I ever expect to keep this blog alive, I need to settle into a routine because right now I just haven't got the time. Don't ask me what I do but it's not blogging :)
So we're getting pretty settled here. There's still stuff I want to do and the dinning room isn't how I want it, but here are some photos of our living room and bedroom. I think it's looking like 'home'. :)
Our living room. The plant, couch and funky chair is new. Everything else we already had. The bottom of the walls will still be painted a dark brown and during the winter the fire place (The hideous thing Chad covered with a cloth) will be exposed. We want to get either a new TV to mount to the wall or a new entertainment stand of some sort. And OF COURSE some art for that massive wall.
Any suggestions on how to decorate a huge blank wall? These ceilings are so high, my petty
artwork just looks stupid. ha ha!
The house has a strange layout, to say the least. This is looking into our bedroom from the kitchen. The bed was made by Chad's Dad and with the addition of my mattress equates me needing to stand on a step stool to get into it! ha ha! I love it!
This is standing back by the bed and looking at my chair, into the kitchen. That's pretty much my spot. Chad sits at the desk in front of the TV and I get all comfy over there. Which is awesome because I love that chair and it's had next to no use in over two years that I've owned it, so it's nice it's getting some love!
This final view is looking into our bedroom from the living room. It's an old farmhouse and I am pretty sure this used to be the living room but an addition was added - or something. I'll get some photos of the kids rooms and the dinning room once it's situated. Also, my office when my new computer and office chair arrives and I get this place cleaned up.
Chad has the garage turned into a 'man cave' so he can escape us! lol I hide in my office and sing when I need a break. It's still going to take me awhile to adjust to everything down here. I knew it would be difficult but I thought I would have more patience than I have. I'm just not used to all the noise and whining and all that other fun stuff kids and animals bring about - but - I wouldn't trade it for anything so that speaks volumes!
One Year Together
On my last blog, I mentioned my Anniversary! What an absolutely amazing day it turned out to be. I haven't uploaded any photos yet but I'll tell you what we did.
First we drove out and checked into Lake Barkley Lodge Resort. It was FREE! So it was worth the
price but I am glad it didn't work out for us to stay there for our honey moon. It just wasn't nearly as nice as the photos suggested, lights flickered, Air conditioning didn't work (called Maintenance, no worries) and it was just small and cramped. lol But it served the purpose and did I mention it was FREE?
Once we checked in, we headed to Clarksville, TN where we indulged in some wine tasting at a winery. Then, Chad decided Nashville was our destination. We ended up on the General Jackson Dinner Boat. It was a really great experience. Good food, nice people, fab music and gorgeous scenery when we went through downtown Nashville!
We got back to the lodge and made it a night to remember! It was just a beautiful and spontaneous day and I fell even more in love with my husband. It's nice when we get alone time. Smiles. Shared glances. Lingering touches. It's what marriage is all about in my opinion.
In The Pipe-Line!
Well it's Friday and tomorrow we've been invited to my Father-In-Laws for a 'Fish Fry'! ha ha! So southern. They stopped by yesterday and asked if I liked Fish - I'm like... Hello? Nova Scotian! I didn't say that, I just enthusiastically agreed. ha ha! I'll have my office chair tonight and Gold Willing my computer will arrive today so I'll likely spend some of tonight getting my office organized.
And of course - SLEEPING in. I can't wait to sleep in. This getting up at 5:00/6:00 AM thing is getting really old :)
Oh, I almost forgot - my Green Card arrived on my anniversary! Still no SSN, so next week Chad is going to have to take me into Mayfield to get one so I can get a bank account and get my stuff transferred over to American.
K, Until Next Time - From Kentucky USA!
