A New Beginning

Another year has passed and I can't believe it's already 2010!

After a couple of very stressful weeks we are finally in our new home! Moving day was December 7th but because of a mishap with the Gas Company - we didn't get our gas meter until December 17th - which meant that we couldn't move in. Our stuff was good to go - but we could not. So we moved all of our stuff in and starting praying to the gas gods that we would get our meter before Christmas.

But due to the mishap we cancelled our trip to Vegas which meant my hubby couldn't do his meet and greet with Sammy Hagar. Sammy was opening his Cabo Wabo Cantina at Planet Hollywood and we were supposed to be there for the celebration and do a meet and greet.

We gave up possesion on our place on December 11th - which meant we were homeless. Homeless and staying at the Hyatt! I must say it's quite a weird sensation living in a hotel in your home town. The good news was that it was only a couple of blocks from the office and it was a Hyatt. How bad can that be? But I must say - after staying in a hotel for two weeks and not being on vacation was not my idea of a good time. However, I must admit that not having to make my own bed and the chocolates on the pillow every nightdefinitely made it bearable!

I did go to Vegas with my cousin over December 10th weekend and we saw Andre Bocelli in concert - which was amazing! So we did go and eat at the Cabo Wabo Cantina - highly recommend it!! Very good!

We finally got our gas meter on December 17th. And we had a planned weekend in Seattle to go the football game that weekend. Hubby was talking about not going as his thinking was that he could get the house finanlized for the the final city inspection. But me and our two friends convincinced him that he definitely needed a weekend away. So he came. We had a great night Friday - went to dinner had a couple of drinks and were ready for a great weekend. But as luck would have it - hubby got food poisoning and spent the entire weekend in the hotel room. Not much fun for him. He's still not 100% - but slowly getting there. It was the worse kind of food poisoning you can get. Just his luck.

But final inspection passed and the house was our officialy on December 23th. The Best Christmas present we could ask for. I had a couple of days to get things organized and we even had Christmas dinner with his family in the new house.

Things have started to settle in and we've got most of the place set up - a few more boxes to sort through and a few more pictures to hang - but we are finally home.

And now the fun begins. In the new house I have the attic as my craft room and it's about 600 sqft. There is so much space that I really have no idea what I want to do to set it up. Tracy had a great idea of sorting through everything I have to see what kind of storage I need and then I'll hit Ikea to start getting the room set up. The only thing about the room as that three of the four walls are angeled - so I'll have to be a bit creative for organizing the layout! And because it is the attic - the access is the granny style stair ladder which means I only have about 18 inch clearing to get things up there. So I'll have to make sure the boxes of stuff I do get fit!!

I have no pictures to post - but I do have a few cards to do this month so I'll get them posted. And once hubby figures out how to hook up the wireless internet - I'll have my computer up in the room so easy access!!

I hope everyone had a good safe holiday! And all the best for 2010!

Thanks for Stoppin' by!
