Well, we are moved in. Mostly.
I've spent the last month packing and then unpacking. Oh, and watching the kiddos.
The wife is working too much - I know she wants to succeed at this new job as do I but I am feeling left out on an island. I have had almost no 'me' time for over a month unless it is real early in the morning or real late at night and then I am punished for lack of sleep.
I have had almost no time to look for a job - I have only updated the resume and look through the help wanted ads in the last 2 Sunday papers (not that I would ever expect to find a job from the help wanted ads but it does give me a sense on who is hiring).
I love my kids but with watching them and putting the house together I am just spent.
Thanks God we are heading to Minneapolis/St. Paul this Sunday.
We are going up to a lake resort just north of Brainerd with some of our college friends and their friends. Lost Lake Lodge (LLL) has only 17 cabins (our 4 families will all fit into cabin 17) and a small private lake. It also has access to the Gull Lakes. They provide gourmet breakfast and dinner along with maid service.
Hanging with our best friends is always refreshing.
We don't head to the resort until Tuesday. So we plan on catching a Magic and Illusion exhibit at the Science Museum and when we return from the lodge make sure we hit the Mall of America where I know Abigail (my 7 year old) will want to see the PowerPuff Girl Movie with our friends' kids.
There is so much to tell about our moving to Mount Vernon, Washington from Houston. The coolest thing we've done is to go on an excursion to see a pod of killer whales. We had one whale swim mere feet off the bow of the boat. It was pretty awesome and the views of Mount Baker are incredible. If you ever get the chance to travel to Seattle - head north on I-5 and visit Anacortes and the Skagit Valley area. Simply beautiful.
More later, so much more...
