Well, no excuses to report as to my lack of blogging. Except for the fact that I have been painting an entire house/unpacking/raising a puppy/starteing a new job...just to name a few! Still unable to load any pictures from my camera because my computer won't recognize it, but when i eventually can get some i will post with pictures! April 2nd we closed on our first place and it has been a whirlwind ever since. I have now painted 8 rooms and have ONE left! Can't wait to get it behind me. Word of advice to myself, if i ever want/have to do this again, i will scrape every penny possible to pay someone else to do it! The house is coming along very nicely though. I've had a few color choices that I may have done differently but now that its done there's no repainting at this point. oh well, if i don't say which aren't my favorites, you'll never know:) As of today, 3.5 weeks after we moved in, we still have no furniture:( Our first batch is in fact supposed to be coming in tomorrow, but there should be more in thursday so we will probably be waiting to get the first batch til thursday or friday. And then the rest should be here May 8th. I tell ya I thought not having a couch wouldn't be so bad, but i cannot wait to have one again. i am tired of sitting on wooden dining room chairs:/ not comfy! um what else...Remington is now 80lbs and still growing! he has definitely entered his "teenage boy" phase right now and is definitely testing our patience...i am very ready for him to be a mature adult and be a little easier to deal with! As i write this he is destroying an empty paper towel roll, all over the floor. Oh well, tis life with a puppy!
Something else that I mentioned above was that I got a new job! I am SO sad to leave my other job but I got offered a position as an Environmental Speciliast in a neighboring bureau and I couldn't turn down a permanent job with benefits. In this job I'll be working in Pesticide Certification and will be approving permits for applicators to apply a VERY dangerous pesticide, called Temik. I started this past Monday and I think I'm gonna like it, but it's definitely not a lab job. The good thing though is I'm still able to wear my same "casual attire" as before, and in fact my desk is still within shouting distance of my old one and my awesome old supervisor! So I didn't have to go far, but its definitely change of work.
And last but not least, the weekend before last was the big Wedding Weekend of Kim & Josh in St. Augustine! The wedding was absolutely beautiful, along with the weather. In fact couldn't have been better. I am SO happy for The Laus and wish them lots and lots of happiness:) Welcome to the fam Josh!
I'll try to be better about blogging now that things are settling down on the home front. Until next time!
