Being away and then coming back never seems easy, although we really were not gone all that long it seems like a lifetime when we get back and there is so much to get in order. These last two days have really gotten away from me, so much to do it seems and so little time! I made a "To-do" list, because that's how I roll and it seems no matter how much I get done the list seems so long!
I have spent hours setting up things for the house, waiting on the phone with utility companies, looking online for things we still need, setting up furniture delivery, answering calls to let us know about the other services available to us with the new ones we have signed up for and being transferred around endlessly waiting for someone who could actually answer the questions I had. I have been cleaning and grocery shopping, cooking and just getting back in the swing of things.
I haven't returned any emails, for those of you who think I am ignoring you I apologize that it absolutely not at all my intention!! I swear this weekend at the latest I will have responded to everyone and caught up on phone calls, etc!
In all of my accomplishments these last two days I have done one thing that I am super excited about...I put together the football pool! We do a family football pool every year and this year we have expanded it with fabulous family friends that will only make it that much better! Jason is doing it at work again as well so I am in on that.. double the fun, double the chance to win! Everyone had made their picks and they are sent out so let the games, beer drinking and shit talking begin!!! Football season is one of my favorite times of year, Jason and I await it anxiously planning food, beers, outings, betting, etc.. its fabulous!
Tonight we are headed to a BBQ at one of Jason's co-workers, I was asked to make a pasta salad. Jason has been all over this whole pasta salad thing and I swear I don't get it. When we were at the Seavey's Jason and Evan came home from Raleigh talking away about this fabulous pasta salad I make... I have never ever made pasta salad! I explained that I had no idea what they were talking about but Jason insisted I could make a FABULOUS pasta salad... so I whipped up something totally random and for all I know it sucked but they all ate it and said otherwise! So tonight we are heading to this BBQ and again Jason brings up the pasta salad! I made a few changes to the last recipe I conjured up but I think it will be eatable.
I am running a little behind, again I don't know where the day went. I got up way earlier then usual because I think I'm still on east coast time, not to mention the fact that I probably had enough sleep as I keep going to bed and literally dying.. I sleep all night with no problems! A FABULOUS change of pace for me!
Tomorrow I plan to fill you in more on house stuff, in regards to things that we are now thinking about purchasing! I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating it has been not being able to find anything!! I really thought it would be the total opposite and last night again I got in bed with the laptop and started looking at dinnerware sets and nothing, I looked at Kohls, Pottery Barn, Sears, JCPenny, etc and not a damn thing I was in love with! I don't know where else to look, I even pulled up Google and just typed in dinnerware sets.. nothing! We cannot find a 6 person pub table for the kitchen, not in the shape we want at least! In all my frustration I am moving on to the more important stuff, wine glasses, Rachel Ray cooking accessories, artwork for the walls. If any of you have any suggestions please let me know, I need all the help I can get!
I'm really sorry I promised to blog and this just sucks! Its not that its not a priority but like I said the day just keeps getting away from me! Tomorrow will be better, I swear it!
I hope you all have a great night!!
