Filling in

Just want to fill you in on a few developments. As you can see from the picture I got a great package from my secret pal. Pistachios are a real favorite of mine, and I am looking forward to the book. So many little things that add up to a wonderful surprise.

We are going away on vacation from August 20th to the 27th. Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. While we're gone they're going to come and rip out the kitchen and re-sheetrock the walls, paint and get ready for my tile guy to come in. I'll take photos of the room naked without appliances and cabinets when I get home.

DS will be coming home tomorrow, we're going to go pick him up from school and leave early on Sunday morning. Lots to do before then the kitchen has to be boxed up, we're far along with that but have more to do. Dishes and food in my pantry closet. We'll set up a mini kitchen in the living room with the coffee maker and a cheap microwave to use for the duration. Lot's of eating out the next few weeks. Wish us luck.

A few days late here is the latest fabulous package from my utterly wonderful Secret Pal. Posted by Picasa

Quick Update

The cabinets for the kitchen are being delivered today. I am starting to be very nervous and also excited about this project. So many things can go wrong, and I am sure that some small things will, but in the end it will all work out. Not sure of the precise start date right now but I will keep you guys posted when I do.

DS and DD are doing well DS comes home for two weeks, or so, starting on the 18th. On the 20th, my birthday, we are leaving on a weeks vacation to Virginia. Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Also going to Washington DC to visit my BIL. For Busch Gardens we are going to get a pass to get through the lines easier with DS. He has trouble waiting sometimes and we want the option to get through the lines easier. They have a special pass for people who are disabled so DS qualifies for it. I hate the looks we get from people when we use these passes but we are entitled to it so I try to ignore them.
