We're (mostly) DONE!

We were up shortly after 5 this morning, and on the road before 6:00. Yikes. We made the 4 hour drive safely, and immediately started unloading when we got to the house. Doyle's family and my dad came to help, which was awesome! We got so much accomplished. I've unpacked and organized the ENTIRE kitchen. In fact, the only thing left to unpack are Doyle's clothes. Pretty good, huh?

I'm seriously beat, though. We just went and went all day long. Around 6 p.m. we sat down for the first time all day and realized that we were completely starving, but we'd been so busy it hadn't occurred to us to eat or drink much all day, minus a pizza slice at lunch. I love food. I never forget to eat. This should give you an idea of how crazy we were all day.

The house looks so awesome. Today's been a great day. Larry finally has his very own backyard! :D

Wow! You must be exhausted today! I know I haven't been around much lately, but where did you move to? Are you graduating in May?

Thanks so much everyone!! I would have checked back in last night buuuut....I fell asleep. Like a rock. ;)

Anne- we're graduating on May 11. This is technically exam week, but Doyle and I don't have exams until Thursday, so we're taking this time to be in Charleston (where we've moved to) and get the house settled. :D Doyle is living in it with a roommate (a friend of ours) until the wedding and I'm living back at my parents' house, which is only about 5 minutes away.

I was so afraid that we wouldn't have enough stuff to make it look like a house, since we're coming from apartments, and almost everything is hand-me-down. We've gotten so lucky, though. Between our two families, we've had a TON of help. Doyle's sister even gave us an entire bedroom suit that she and her husband didn't want anymore!

So yes- good weekend. :) The good news keeps rolling in, too! I'll have to let Mom update everyone on her part of that later on tonight, though. ;)

Morning! Do you feel like Queen of the Castle today? Larry in heaven over his own yard? :)
Katherine did not stay here, but I must say that I feel quite king-like. :)

And yes, Larry is in HEAVEN in the backyard. He has been out back chasing squirrels and mingling with the neighbors' dogs through the fence. :D

Haha- almost! I'll get Doyle to find his digital camera tomorrow and take some pictures- I promise!

It'll be especially important because the yard looks like it's been BOMBED. It obviously has been neglected for several years now, so my parents and other people have been brutally clearing it out this last week. 3 big trees and many smaller dead trees have been taken down, along with numerous (enormous) bushes. Tomorrow, Doyle's job is to drag all of the stuff from the backyard to the front for trash pickup on Tuesday. ;)

I'll try to get some pictures today, but I apparently have a lot of work to do, while Katherine gets to "run errands." ::) LOL
