That's what I've been. We made it to NYC and back successfully and closed on the new house and moved in. But the @#*&##'s at Comcast still don't have our cable or internet hooked up so I've been completely offline except for my Crackberry. I haven't done pregnancy pics for the last two Sundays but just take the last pic and adjust the width by 200% and you'll have a good idea of what I look like.

I'm almost glad to be back at work today because the overwhelming pile on my desk is nothing compared to the pile of boxes at the house. But, we're gradually settling in, even though Trevor keeps saying he wants to go "home". I tell him this is our home now, but I don't think he's accepting it just yet. I'm sure it doesn't help that they've been asked to just entertain themselves and stay out of the way for the past week-plus. And their diet has been almost 100% fast food and candy. And their sleep schedule is totally out of whack. But hey, they're kids, they can adjust, right?

Some things I love about the new house/neighborhood:
  • Whole Foods Mkt only 3 blocks away
  • "Fire Engine" park only 5 blocks away
  • Great elementary school ~8 blocks away
  • My work 2.4 miles away

Number of times in my life I am likely to walk or bike to any of these places: ZERO. But it's nice to have such short drives in my future :-)

3 blocks to Whole Foods eh? Where are you exactly?

Not the Whole Foods you used to live by. It's this one:

We'll be sending out address change cards shortly when we get everything sorted out, but we're technically now in the "City of Southside Place" ( which is a small 1530 person "city" between West University and Bellaire. Atually, maybe it's 1532 people since a family of 2 moved out of our house and our family of 4 moved in. Soon to be 1533 when baby arrives.

Congrats on the new house, the pictures looked cool. Looking forward to seeing it in 2008.
