Day One

1. Introduction to this Challenge and tell us a little about yourself!

 

Ok, well, I’ve done the intro! LOL Now about me… Hmmm…. What is there to say that I haven’t said already??? I even have that About Me tab at the top…. 

How about this – I am NEVER going to get this house totally unpacked!!!! LOL OMGOSH! It’s making me crazy!!!! All I have left is my sewing room/library but it’s taking me forever to sort through all the books!! I have all of mine put up except for the classics and a few favorites, I haven’t decided where to put those yet. Now I am working on the kids’ books. MY GOODNESS!!!! I didn’t realize just how many books they have! They seriously have their own library. LOL I am sorting through school books first. So far I have most of the science titles up and about 1/2 of the history.  SHEW!! Now I need to decide where to put the biographies! 

I took a break from the books and opened a box of fabric and started to put it away. I am a little upset at how some of the fabric and some of my books were packed… The packers the first day just seemed to tape a box and toss stuff in it. GRRRRR!!!!!! I guess I should just be thankful that I didn’t have to pack and leave it at that. 

I am getting used to this small south Georgia town. The weather has been fantastic! BUT it’s kind of hard to get into the Thanksgiving mood when it feels this nice out! Definitely NOT peppermint hot chocolate weather. 

The Hubby is enjoying his new job. He is soooo glad to be back in management!! He HATES wearing steel-toed boots, though… LOL AND he has to wear one of those neon vests that crossing guards wear. He’s making the best of it, though. He realizes that it will mean less wear and tear on his t-shirts and tennis shoes. 😉

Maybe I should add a little bit more about me…

Georgia is the 6th state that I have lived in. It joins West Virginia, Virginia, South Carolina, Indiana and Tennessee. 

I have to tell you what happened yesterday… I was talking on the phone to my friend (Hi, Eileen!) when I see this snake poking out of a pile of dirt and rocks. All I can see is the back end BUT I can see the colors, red, black and white… Now, I KNOW that there are king snakes and coral snakes in this area and Eileen starts to recite the little rhyme that goes with them, but all I can think is SSSSSNNNNNAAAAAAKKKKKEEEE!!!!! Yeah… I freak out a little. I holler inside for Joshua and the broken mop that was left here. I started poking at the snake and….. it was a toy!!!! LOL! SHEW!!!!!! It was such a relief!! LOL

SIGH…. I guess I have taken a long enough break… Back to sorting books….

  2. Hi Stacy, proud you and family are getting settled in..Eeeeh ..the upacking is awful!!! I hate moving, and I haven’t done it in years.lol
    The story of the snake was so funny [know it wasn’t to you, at the moment].. Proud it was a toy though.. As for me… I don’t care of it is a deadly snake or a king snake. It it looks like a snake , I am scared to death of it.. Kenny tells me ” oh ,that one won’t hurt you.” my reply,
    ” oh yes it will, it will give me a heart attack, no matter what kind it is” lol
    Welcome to our weather.. But trust me, it may be sunny, pretty and tomorrow it may be snowing. or pouring rain.. You can never predict this time of year. ????????????? Which is really hard.. And just wait for this summer. HUMID, HUMID.. that is all I can say about the summer months.lol
    Take care and hope you get the unpacking done soon.. And get that sewing machine going soon, I miss your cute things.

    • LOL!! Thanks, Judy!!!!! I feel the exact same way about snakes! BLECK!! The only good snake is a DEAD snake! 😉
      Yeah, I was thinking I would have to pay for this nice weather come summer time. :/ Maybe I will just barricade myself in the house for the whole summer…. LOL 😉

  3. I love A Little Unhinged and what a great way she came up for me to get to know some of my favorite bloggers better. Looking forward to more of your posts!
