And we are back.

I am so excited to say that we have gotten moved into the rental and placed the kids into their new schools. We have waited the customary 2 weeks to get all of our utilities lined up. We will just get into a routine of proper billing and paying and then it will be time to move again.

No worries. It will all be worth it when we are moved into our new house with all of our green choices. We have closed on our previous house and everything was signed, sealed, and delivered. We have signed on the dotted line for our new home so that they can begin the building process. A perk to living in a small town...things like building permits are potentially approved much quicker. The downside to living in a small town...the person who approves those building permits has his own time line, which in our case, is part time. I can see a squeaky wheel in this guys future!

Upon having our land surveyed and marked for digging, we have also been made aware that our neighbors have built their fence almost 2 feet into our property. Bad you say? Yes, I say. I am not sure how this will play out, but I can see big machinery making a big mess of known fence. One more thing...they have also built a shed right next to that fence that is on our land. Can you guess where I am going with this? The shed may have to move. The fence may have to move. When my husband and I found all this out we looked at each other and said, Welcome to the neighborhood!

Let's see...I am sure that I have tons more to tell you. It seems like I have been gone forever. Make sure you stop by to let me know you are doing well. And to fill me in on what has been happening in your neck of the woods.

First thing on the choices of the new home....I have to choose a siding color. And a shutter color. I have already chosen tan windows for the whole house. My hope is to have you all help me make my choices. I will take some pictures of some of my color choices and then you guys tell me what you think. Are you up for it?

I'm not afraid of color. I'll give you opinions. I like colors that really speak to me. Bold is great.
