Are We There Yet?

The ole 4 Runner has been getting some serious miles out on her. First the drive out from Wyoming -2000 miles. Trip up to NY for a wedding -700 or so miles. And, now we are driving to Florida -1000 miles give or take. Then we will have to drive back to VA -600 miles give or take.
I think that’s more miles out on the car in 2 weeks then I put on it the first 6 months we owned the car.
And, well with all of this driving I can say I’m getting sick of being in a car. I won’t be driving to far for a while after we get home that’s for sure.
But, it’s great to be back in the East Coast.

When In NY

Tonight for dinner Pizza was on the menu. My husband pretty much insisted that it was basically a crime to come to NYC and not have pizza.
And, well he’s right because when in NY one must eat at least a slice of pizza.
We ordered some pizza gluten free for me and full of gluten for everyone else.
So, the husband had his pizza and tomorrow we head off to the next stop of out your of the Eastern Seaboard.
Washington DC tomorrow to take care of some things.

Boogey Down In The Bronx!

Did a couple of my favorite things in the Bronx today.
$5 eyebrow threading – Check
$6 manicure – Check
Eat at George’s – Check
Tomorrow we load ourselves in the ole 4Runner and head upstate for wedding fun.

Tired Dogs

Tonight our friends came over so my husband could help them with work on their truck. We figured this would be the best time for the dogs all to meet as well.
Our 2 lab mixes and their 3 mix breeds made for a fun time along with a little growling and teeth showing. It all worked out and they had a great time in the backyard running all over the place.
But, not to self 5 dogs in the house when it’s well after mealtime and they haven’t eaten yet can make for some ornery little dogs. Once we took them back outside they were good to go with running and chasing each other.
As you can see my dogs are worn out.

Ahhhh tired little doggies. Hopefully they sleep well tonight.

I Found Homes For All The Crap

Today, the husband and I did some running around and errands. After that we both pretty much vegged out. It was a dark dreary day here today, although there was no torrential monsoon like rains, which we had all day and night yesterday.
I finally got myself motivated and went to town putting all of the random, for lack of a better word, crap away. Most of it was little knick knacks and decor type things. So really it was just a process of deciding where to place it. So without further fanfare here’s the house, well the inside anyway. I’ll have to get some photos of the outside.

The guest bedroom is all set up and ready for some visitors.

Here’s the office, and well it’ll only look this neat right now. Once the husband gets in there it’ll be a disaster. He’s going to learn to pick up after himself or he’ll be hiring someone to follow after him to clean up after him.

This is our room don’t mind the unmade bed I’ll be getting to that.

The living room is ready for some relaxing and entertaining.

The dining room. As you can see there are photos and artwork that need to be hung up but I’ve got to decide where I want each thing to go.

And finally the kitchen and breakfast area. Ahhhhh it feels good to be done. Now I just need to clean the house because we’ve been tracking in some serious dirt the last week.
Tomorrow I’ll tackle the cleaning of the house. Of course it will be for after I clean my car. I can’t even tell you what my poor car looks like after 2000 miles with a 70 and 90 pound dog in it. Yeah, I think I’ll be cleaning that poor thing for a while. I need to figure out how to get the dog hair off the headliner. Any suggestions will be appreciated as vacuuming it hasn’t worked in the past.

House Is Done!

Today I emptied the last of the boxes in the house. Of course the house is still a long way from done. There are tons of things stacked on every surface that still need to find a home, but all of the boxes have been opened, emptied, and broken down.
Now the garage is a whole other story. The husband had been putting a dent in it this afternoon though I must say. He’s got the back third cleared out and is making his way to the front. He’s got to get it pretty much usable by tomorrow as he will be helping a friend out working in his truck. And, well if the monsoon type weather we are currently experiencing they are going to want to be able to pull the truck in to the garage a bit.
While the husband was working on the garage I tackled the disaster that is our office. I’ve got it set up, just need the husband to assemble the bed that will go in there and then it’s finished and ready for action.
I’m working on finding homes for all of the stuff that is currently covering both of our dressers in the bedroom. Also putting away some laundry.
I’ve got to find some homes for things in the kitchen and dining room and after that the house will be good. I want to get the kitchen squared away so that the counters are cleared and the dog crates can come down and be stored. We will use the gate to contain them to the kitchen when we leave instead of crating them. Because I would like to use my kitchen table to eat at from time to time.
Of course after I finally get all of this stuff sorted out it’ll be time to do a major clean of this house, ahhhh the joys of moving.
