Moved in I need to catch up on blogging

We are officially moved into our not-completely-finished house. It was a incredibly nice day on Wednesday, for being December 26th, so we felt blessed to get such a nice day to move. We had the help of several friends and family members, without them I don't think I would be able to move my tired old body today. My uncle Chris, who not only helped us move, but also lugged away all of the brush we have had in our front yard for like 3 months to his compost pile. The thought has even crossed our minds to finally rake up our leaves. That requires that is stops raining for a day or two and isn't sub-zero weather....we'll see when that gets done.

I described our current living situation as a nice camping trip. I wash my face and brush my teach at the water spouts for the laundry with a bucket to catch the water and our toilet should be going in as we speak. We luckily have had use of other facilities thus far, but I don't think I will ever be so glad to see a porcelain throne in working condition. Our bathroom is so close to being 95% done and once it is our time can finally be spent doing other things. I do have some pictures to update the blog with. I will try to get that done in the next few days but it isn't likely that we will have Internet available at home yet so it might be next week before that happens.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and got some R&R and great food, I know we enjoyed those things, especially this Christmas, even if it was only for a few hours at at time.
