Still Unpacking







We are in & still unpacking. Is moving a long process for everyone or is it just me? Here are some pictures of the house now that we are in.

New House & New Neighbors

Here it is. This is an actual picture of my new house. It is not the model as shown on previous posts. The yard was seeded last Thursday & now we wait for grass. We also have new neighbors. They have a very active social life. I don't know how they do it but they seem to greet us each & every day.

Miracles Do Happen


Believe it or not but miracles do happen. Yesterday was our school districts annual Kennywood Picnic. For those of you not familiar with Kennywood (www.kennywood.com/), it is an amusement park located near Pittsburgh, PA.

As you wait in line for the ride, one always seems to observe the signs. Oh, you know what signs I'm talking about. "If you have a heart, neck, back condition or are pregnant you should not ride this ride." Well that's not me. What about the ones that say "Secure all loose article." This is the one I'm talking about.

Very aware of these signs, I was constantly checking my pocket for my cell phone. We rode many coasters without any problems, cell phone intact in my pocket. It wasn't until we rode the last ride of the night, the Racer. The Racer was always a favorite with my kids. Hubby & son always get in on train & my daughter & I get in to the opposing train (If you are not familiar with this ride, it is a coaster that has 2 trains that race).

Caught up in the moment, my husband insisted that we get the last seats. We buckled up, the safety bar locked, I checked my pocket to secure my phone & off we rode. Hands up, hair blowing & having a great time. We pulled in to the station being harassed that my daughter & I lost. It was then I did another phone check & my stomach dropped. Not from the ride but from my phone not in my pocket.

We checked the floor no where to be found. I felt between the cushions of the car, no luck. It was then I came to terms that it was gone. Shattered into pieces. Time for a new phone.

I began my search for a new phone today. Spoke to my husband about what new phone I would want. Continued to search on line when the home phone rang. Caller id showed Kennywood. Could it be? So I answered it. It was Kennywood, we have your cell phone, it was found this morning as we were testing the ride.

I immediately went to pick it up being that I live near by. Low & behold it was in one piece, no scratches or cracks. The only thing wrong, a dead battery. Unbelievable!

A New Chapter Begins

It has been a roller coaster of emotions the past few days. We will be completing our move this weekend & saying good bye to our old home.

The old house was the house that I saved for & bought as a young single chick. Not long after that I married & started a family in it. Our family as experienced many ups & downs here. It is now time to move on to bigger & better things.

The Moving Process


The day finally arrived! We closed back on May 10th. We haven't moved in completely, I think it would have been devastating to uproot the kids from their school with only a few weeks left this year.

The moving process has been slow. In a way I don't mind. It gives me time to organize how I want things arranged. So as of June 12. We should be in permanently. Can't wait!

This is a picture of the model home but ours is the same with the exception of the grass & landscaping. Right now there is only dirt in the front. And on rainy days, I have a pool. A pool of mud that is.
