Today, we fell short. We had big plans but they didn't pan out. Yesterday the fridge was delivered so today it was cold enough to fill it. We went out to lunch then went and grabbed groceries.
Shopping wears her out, apparently.That's really all we got done. All afternoon we had to hang around for the cable guy, who was hooking up our internet. Unpacked a little, mostly kids' stuff. Moved all the trash out to the garage. We had a quick dinner of sandwiches and then the kids went wild. WILD. Bouncing off the walls, running the length of the house, crazy. Nanaw was witness to some of this while we video chatted. Although not near the same as real-life, it is really amazing that they can see each other and interact. After chat time with Nanaw we tried to start bedtime (it was like 8pm) and at 10:15pm, all four kids were finally asleep. And B and I are exhausted. We opted to take the evening off, enjoy the internet and get back to unpacking tomorrow.
I do have to say that while everything is different (HEB anyone?) the weather (especially for Nov/Dec) is AMAZING. Seriously. High temp is KS tomorrow is 41 degrees. High temp here? 67 degrees. Which to Texas natives is apparently cold. I'm rocking flip-flops with a long sleeve tee and jeans. Girl next to me at lunch is wearing a long sleeve hoodie over a shirt, scarf and UGGS. Last night at dinner we sat out on the patio at Outback and the girl that left as we were sitting down commented on how it was perfect ''sweatshirt weather''. B was wearing short sleeve polo, jeans and flip-flops. It was 72 degrees out! It's amazing. The only major complaint about living here (other than being 12 hours away from 'home'): sandburrs
