We heard from the builder of our new home the other day and they will be breaking ground in the next week or so!! We are over the top excited. It has been very trying at times living in the apartment and to hear that we are getting closer and closer to October just made us giddy LOL!!
John and I have to met with the builder in about a week to go over the plans again with him to make sure everything is set just the way we want it. I really want to talk to him about the granite choices. We only had 3 granite selections and I really didn't get the choice I wanted. They switched out the granite samples and it didn't include the one we saw in the model. I picked Uba Tuba which is black and I really wanted something that was a cream color with brown streaks through it. I'm sure we can come to some arrangement, they seem like reasonable people.
I really am having a hard time with not gardening this summer. While Megan, our oldest daughter is "babysitting" my plants and doing a great job of it, I miss my plants! She sends me texts with pictures of them so I can seem them blooming-isn't that sweet of her!! This Fall we can still put some plants in and maybe even start a Fall/Winter Veggie Garden but until then I guess it is the Farmer's Market for my fresh flowers and veggies. It could be worse I know.
I have a mantra that I say every day, "We only have 3.5 months in the apartment, we only have 3.5 months in the apartment, we only have 3.5 months in the apartment...
Thanks for putting up with my whining!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
