Our first few weeks have been a whirlwind because we went out of town and had guests over for Thanksgiving (more on that soon) but I just wanted to say hello!

I wanted to give everyone a quick photo update because I know I have been MIA. I am going to blame it on Verizon because we are still without internet at home and I have taken some vacation time from work so I am forced to visit the library to logon to the internet. We spent our first night drinking champagne, eating a good dinner and Brad surprised me with a pretty bouquet of flowers. Yes, we did use the blender as a vase since we only had random boxes at the house.

Yup, you read that right - today we can move in!!! Brad called me at 8:40 this morning to tell me that the inspector had already been otu to our house and everything went great. Three hours later he has already brought our new sofa, ottoman and mattresses to the house and will getting more things together throughout the day. I'll write more and FINALLY post pictures in a few days, but for now I'm just going to enjoy spending time in our new home.

I haven't been posting because this house process has still been draining me emotionally. We are still living with Brad's parents and waiting for the house to be done. Last Friday I was on-site for a plumbing/septic inspection when they realized one of our pipes was broken, meaning we failed our inspection of course. The pipe was fixed in no time, but another inspection couldn't be done until Monday, Nov. 2 - luckily we passed. Also on Friday the plumber told me our sewage grinder pump wasn't operating correctly. In an effort to prevent sewage from accumulating in our pipes, I called WSSC and within three hours a new pump was installed (much easier than I thought) at their expense. Now we learned that we need to wait 10 days from chlorinating our well to have the water sample test done which carries over to next Tuesday, Nov. 10th. We are going to the house daily and running water to speed up the dissolving process of the chlorine tablets because we are several weeks behind "schedule" and patience has run out. Sigh.........
