Countdown Starts

One week today we are back in our own home. I cannot wait! I'm already excitedly making plans and imagining how I want it to look. Of course, a lot of it will come over time. First we have to finish the basement for #1 to have his own room, we'll have a rec room and a full bath, and either a music room or a craft room (we can't remember how big the room is at this point and are guesstimating based on old plans), plus storage. I've already put a deposit on carpet.

In the meantime, we have to pack. I hate packing. I love unpacking - the newness of where everything should go and starting fresh.

I'm excited about what this year will bring us for so many reasons. One of them is that September marks the 10th anniversary for dh and I. We celebrated early with a weekend cruise this past month. It was so great to just be us for a while, instead of Mom and Dad. We remembered how much fun we have together and all the things we like to do (dining out and trying new food has always been high on that list and where better than a cruise for that). We attended an Elton John tribute that was excellent and so much fun.

Anyway, 7 more sleeps until we get our place.
