Thought I'd get to bed early tonight, but no such luck. It's my own damn fault.

Again, she's talking about the house
Went to see the progress on the inside of the house today. DeAnn and Amy graciously gave up their lunch hour to come with me to check it out. After waiting a little too long, we finally go to go over there in our pretty hard hats. We felt a little rushed by the sales lady, but it was nice to get inside. It's coming along nicely. There's some weird things that this guy chose (like only one sink in the master bathroom and no tub and bumpy tiles for the shower), but what are you gonna do? I can't change it now. The cabinets aren't *as* dark as I feared, but they're still darker than I would have chosen. I forgot how gigantic the basement was. And there was a huge hole at the bottom of the basements stairs...that was disturbing, but I know it will be fixed. Now, we're just waiting for our closing date. And then....I'll worry about getting some furniture in that house. Holy cow, we're gonna have a house!!!!

I have been so lazy lately. I haven't worked out in weeks. I don't think I have gained any weight, but I feel soft. I'm sure the "softness" I feel is mostly psychosomatic, but I feel like I'm being so unhealthy. It's time for me to start up a workout routine again. No more lazy Heather.

Someone stole my photo
, I'm official now, someone "stole" my photo and they're using it on their Web site.
I am constantly teetering between being excited about the new house and being scared out of my mind. Are we going to be totally broke after making our monthly payments? What are our monthly payments going to be? (We haven't "locked" in our rate yet) Is it going to be tons of work? Where are we going to get furniture? (We don't have too much right now.) Where am I going to get blinds? Is it going to be totally stressful trying to do these last pieces of buying the house? Holy cow!

They're still building our new house, but I walked through it today. They've done most of the painting. Yay!

Had a filling replaced today and I had to be numbed. It took four hours for it to wear off!! I hate being numb.

Helping a Puppy
Today, Jessica saw a dog running around our apartment complex when she looked out the window. So, we ran out of our apartment and tried to track the dog down. Jessica spotted her and called to her....the dog came running. We took her upstairs into our apartment and tried to calm her down enough so we could read her tags. (She was hyper!!) The number on her tag had been disconnected. Jessica did a reverse look-up on the phone number and found that the phone number was linked to a house down the block. We drove over there and found her owners. It looked like they were in the process of moving out, so that would explain the disconnected number. This is the third time we have returned a pup to their owner. Our apartment complex seems to attract the runaways. :-)
