we are officially "hooked up" again in the world. we now have phone, internet and cable (phone number stayed the same for those that might wonder). we are doing well, trying to get ourselves settled. i feel like i am slowly but surely getting there, a little every day! the kids are adjusting pretty well, ethan will need to be reminded where exactly the bathrooms are for a while i think and avery had a rough-ish day today but it might just be the little cold she has. or it's probably the move but oh well...we will make it:)
story to tell about today....
i was a little worried about the Cox people coming today to hook up the internet and cable because notoriously something goes wrong. so they tell me they are coming between 1 and 3 today (right at nap time, that doesn't bode well) and that it could take up to 3 HOURS for the installation! what??? holy crow! okay, so i've been prepping my mind for this since i made the appointment and i had a game plan. this morning, i sneak away at the end of cinderella to take a shower, about 8:45 am. then i am out of the shower and drying off and ethan runs upstairs and is telling me avery fell and i am hoping the next words out of his mouth aren't "down the stairs" and they are not...whew. but she did fall out of the laundry basket which was sitting on the couch. lame mom. so i rush downstairs to comfort avery (in a towel and still wet mind you) and i get her mostly calmed down and in the process i think, this would almost be funny if someone knocked on my door right now...and then the doorbell rang. honestly. so i look out of the peep hole and see...you guessed it! the Cox guy. he's early, any other time this would be great...but now it's not so good, you know, i'm wet here and in a towel! so i streak upstairs throw on clothes and hope he can hear the children talking and will stay on the porch until i get back down because if he leaves and i have to call and get someone back out..this could take another week! so i make it back downstairs in about 45 seconds i think:) then, without opening the door i ask who it is because (i remember the self defense class at church i just went to) and while i am expecting the guy, it's not for 4 more hours and he identifies himself and what he's there for and i let him in and thankfully it doesn't take 3 hours and now here we are...wow..what a morning huh?:) the fun doesn't end! but it was better for him to come in the morning than at nap time, i'll say that for sure!
so we are getting settled! give me another few days and then i'd love some visitors!
