Our (soon to be) new house!

28 07 2009

We made an offer on a house, and our offer was accepted this morning!  In approximately 45 days we will be the proud official owners of our very own home.

Whew!! This morning Webb and i got up at 6am to participate in the Anthem 5k Fitness Classic.  We ran with the kids from St. Joe’s run club.  Anthem waived registration fees for the kids and volunteers so we got to hang out with some great kids, get a free t-shirt AND exercise. I would normally post lots of photos of an event like this, but to protect the privacy of the kids we don’t take photos.

The weather was amazing and the kids were great.  Reports project that there were about 9,000 particpants.





Kentucky

5 02 2009

We’ve finally settled into our new place in Kentucky and i realized that i have completely neglected this blog.  “Realized” is probably a poor choice of words, because i totally knew i wasn’t posting, but i had just been so busy that i felt i had other more important things to do.  Frankly there are a lot more things to do here in Louisville than in Canon City.  For starters, real human interaction…in person not over the phone.  Of course there are the requisite places to shop and restaurants to vist etc. etc.  Having a job and spending time with other people takes up a lot of time when compared to unemployment and social isolation, which is really the way it should be and the way i prefer it.

A few things that have happened since our last post.

  1. We left Colorado behind, for several weeks after returning we agreed to pretend it was just a bad dream.
  2. Thanksgiving-In Kingsport
  3. Christmas-In Louisville
  4. Lived in my childhood bedroom with my husband for 3 weeks
  5. Moved into a house on Frankfort Ave.
  6. Got a temporary job with my Mom (and for awhile my sister too)
  7. Reconnected with several good friends (though still several to get in touch with)
  8. Celebrated Webb’s 26th birthday
  9. Learned to cook a delicious recipe Ginger Chicken Meatballs (post to come)
  10. Lost power for a week from an ice storm

Things are going well, I’m goignt o get back into the swing of things with the blog.





Hiatus

Sorry, we are putting everything on a temporary hiatus since we are packing.  We are returning to Kentucky in the last week of November.  More on all that later on, along with a post about Bishop’s Castle.





Happy Anniversary

3 10 2008

Today is my parent’s 28th anniversary. Happy Anniversary mom and dad! I think this is the first anniversary where all the kids are moved out of the house (if you count my sister being in college). So after nearly 26 years of having kids at home, i’m sure it’s nice to have a break.
