Pants on da ground

Ya, I have that song stuck in my head. How awful, huh?

It is Friday. The last official day of my last official spring break. I feel as though I might shed a tear. It was a good spring break though. I got lots of packing and sleeping done. We move a week from tomorrow into our new house and I am so excited! I have to give myself pep talks before I walk in to any store because all I want to do is start buying things for the house. I have to think "No Katherine, wait until you get moved and then you can go crazy, okay?" It quite hilarious. We are going by the house tomorrow to put our refrigerator in the garage. The owners (who are already moved out) were kind enough to allow us to store it there until the big day. I need to think of a name for our house. I name everything: my car, my shoes . . . so it just feels right. I'll think of it soon--no suggestions please. So, by the way, the moving party will be on Saturday, March 27th beginning around 10 a.m. Come help and I will feed you lunch! :)

Ok bedtime bye!

Study Study Study

I should be studying right now... I have a test tomorrow.

It seems like that's all I do now. I have never been a study-er. I don't get bad grades but I just can't sit and study for long periods at a time. So I take lots of breaks to eat, pee, walk around, play a game on the computer or throw Jinx's mouse around for her. I managed to get a video of her fetching the other day. I will get it on here when I figure out how to do that.

This weekend was interesting/fun/quick. Friday I had clinical at MCH until around 7:15 p.m. I went over to mom and dad's for dinner after because Tim was working late. I think he made it home around 10:30 or so. We went out for lunch together on Saturday and then I went with my parents to Lamesa to meet my family from Lubbock to celebrate my Grandmother's birthday. Tim couldn't go because he was on "rig call" for work. My phone rang around 6:30 p.m. ... a rig was broken down. Yuck. I hate hearing those words. He didn't get home until 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Rig's scare me. They are dangerous and I have seen some of the accidents in the E.R. This makes it hard for me to sleep when he's gone. So, needless to say we slept in on Sunday morning and enjoyed a fairly lazy day together.

Well I have a busy week coming up so sayanora til later!

We bought a HOUSE!

Well we can finally let the secret out: we bought a house. We wanted to wait until the inspections and negotiations were over before we told everyone. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

Yay. It is really exciting! Tim and I have always dreamed about owning a home and can't believe how blessed we have been to find this house. It has really been a work of the Lord because the timing and the stories that go along with it are truly miraculous. Now I get to pick out paint colors and start shopping the garage sales for furniture. So, if you have any cool furniture that you feel like tossing out soon--don't, I might want it! We officially close at the end of March so I won't have any other pictures up until then. The interior of the house needs a little paint and TLC so I will be posting some fun before and after pictures. Get excited! Also, if anyone just loves to paint, I would love your assistance. There might even be an edible reward.

Not much else has been going on other than the house business so I will leave you with my verse of the day.

"Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless." 1 Cor. 15:58
