Because I am tender and the AC works super great.

I’m going to take pictures of our new house basement apartment and post pics, maybe this weekend – but probably not because I know me and I know how lame I am about trying to actually get online on the weekends. Early next week my friends!

Cade loves living at Gwandma Penny’s house. He knows he isn’t allowed to just traipse up the stairs any time and bug them without being invited, so if he thinks Mom and Dad are being boring (What?! Having a Harry Potter marathon is NOT boring. Caden calls Mommy and Daddy Harry Potter – in a British accent, I swear – because we are both wearing glasses when we watch it) he’ll stand at the bottom of the stairs and bellow up, “Gwandma! I wanna come up! Taden’s comin up!”) And he’s usually welcome to. :) [Pic: Caden Potter]

Hairy and Bobbi survived the move, but HATED the drive up. They were sharing a super-jumbo dog carrier, cuz they’re a little hefty, and Bobbi wsa on top of Hairy and they were both crying and I couldn’t shift my car into 4th gear because they were sitting on it and it was awkward and my armpits were sweating and prickling and I felt so bad for them and I kept saying “Mommy’s sorry, Mommy’s sorry, I’ll give you brave girls some string cheese, just hang in there Lovers!” They barely made it.

Hairy had a mental breakdown behind water storage, but they both seem to be bouncing back. I’m so proud of them. And Bobbi’s stopped eating her pubes, which is a monumental feat for the feline. I really think living with Whit made her eat them. Seriously. She started eating them when she moved in, stopped when we left. Odd cat. Don’t feel bad Whit!

The place is kind of like a snow cave, and despite the fact its 90 degrees out, I’m usually wearing a hoodie inside. This is not because I am underweight or have an eating disorder. This is because I am tender and the AC works super great.

There are tarantulas that live outside. I saw a baby one when we were moving in, and I’m like GREAT! HAPPY MOVING IN DAY, BRIE! LET’S GO PASS OUT FROM FRIGHT NOW AND THEN HATE YOUR LIFE LATER. There are also raccoons and mountain lions (but they should stay up higher in the mountains) and deer and stuff. When Cade wants to play in the backyard, he doesn’t say he wants to play outside, but rather he wants to play “IN THE WOODS.” Even he’s noticed how wild it is up there. So I’m a little freaked but coping.

Brandon is now in school a ton, and between working, I don’t see my mate until about 8 every night, which is super depressing and weird. This is gonna be tough!

Baby #2 is the size of a kidney bean and still hates blueberries. I don’t really know much more about it/her/him. It still doesn’t have any junk.

The end.

Yeah! You made it!!!! I'm so happy to hear that you all have finally finished moving. Here in WA hardly anyone has AC, but luckily Timothy got an apartment in a high rise building in Bellevue and it not only has an incredible view of the city (2 whole walls are just window), but it has AC!!!!! Whenever I come over I don't want to leave (uh......usually cuz of the AC, but don't tell him that!!). I'm home sick for a few days and I like your idea of a Harry Potter marathon. I mean, you can't go wrong with something like that, can you? I'm also going to try and get some reading done. Have you read any books recently that were good? Well, I'm happy you're doing great with the move, despite the horrible spiders and killer beasts outside your windows. Have an amazing day of relaxation with your movies and adorable son and much needed AC.

M & D's basement is cold year round (ask B & A). They can testify too. We would even close all of the vents down there and they still froze. So plan on keeping your hoodies out year rounds. I'm glad Cade is happy there. And, at least if Brandon doesn't get home till' eight, you know most nights you always have some company upstairs. That should help fo sho,

Have fun with the tarantulas, deer, acorns, mountain lions, etc.

I saw that nasty spider too! Don't keep your doors open, I am sure if there was one there are many more lurking in the bushes wanting to come in. I am sure Cade loves it there, more people there to love him. Cade was good today, very happy slash hyper slash good!( except when I had to change him)

I am trying to picture a baby tarantula. How big/small are they?

Tanya said...

B,

I am glad you survived your move...still in the middle of mine. Sorry its so cold and that you have to deal with the spiders on steroids. Hopefully this move will make things easier for you and your hubby. Much love.

It would be super, super awesome if you could get a picture of one of those tarantulas for me, I'm not sure what species lives in Utah...

Glad the move went ok and you're getting settled in now!

EW, spiders!

I like the last paragraph, how the baby still doesn't have any junk. But he/she DOES produce urine and has developed eyes now! I'm just the junk is on its way.

I was so sad to hear that you're selling your old couch. I loved it!

Darn junkless kidney beans...

Glad things are coming together - we should play soon.
