Busy..busy.. busy!!!!

Guess I had better take the time to up date my blog.. We have been VERY busy with the house since Monday. Even though it was very livable, we have been working HARD to fix it the way we want it. Mark came over all day and trimmed ALL the trees and bushes!!! WOW !! Does that make a difference... The kids went in the pool thought it does not have the new heater yet and so is COLD!!! We bought a lovely patio set from Craig's List this morning and are heading out to furniture stores in a few minutes. So far, we have had lots of neighbors stop by... the pool guy, pest control guy twice and the insurance guy checking the roof for high winds.... Yesterday was my 66th birthday so Mark and Tab brought over pizza, gifts and root beer floats!!!! On Monday, we went to the store and bought LOTS of things to set up housekeeping... silverware, pillows, toaster,brooms, mop, food... etc... We have found that the dishwasher works great and we also have a disposal and ice maker.... Finally got the water turned on....Before we came here, we spent over 2 days with my sister Donna at Daytona Beach.. Nice WARM pool and great restaurants. We went to Aunt Catfish right on the inlet and also to Top of Daytona.. 29 stories up!!!! We had a 2 bedroom condo facing the Atlantic Ocean!!! Real nice !!! Only 2 more days to work and then we have to drive up to Lake Wales to move our m.h. I'll try to keep in touch more often... Carole

Belated Happy Birthday! Sounds like your kids gave you a good day. Your house sounds nice. I know it's a lot of work to get settled but it's also fun, right?!
