Where did June go?

I FINALLY did start my job! I consider myself lucky they didn't give up on me and hire someone else! The funny part is ALL of the patients have even been telling me "OH, you finally made it!" It cracks me up!!! :)

My SO is GONE again and was GONE for most of the month of June! AND will be gone for most of the month of July!! :( I have continued to S L O W L Y unpack and have told everyone I'm never moving again! *heehee* NEVER say never!!! Definitely the most progress of the month was when Dad saved the day (for like the zillionth time) and came to visit his homesick daughter via the medical examiners office in New Orleans!! Have I ever mentioned that my Dad deserves the FATHER AWARD???? Trust me, you have NO idea!! (I am a very blessed chick to have parents like mine!!! SERIOUSLY!)

OK let's see AMY came to visit!!! That was awesome! I nearly killed her in the yard b/c Dad was here too for that visit....but she survived and now after working through a thunderstorm in the yard she believes my halogen-lights-in-the-night stories!

Oh yes, the Creels came for a quick pizza party and swim on their way to Austin, TX! I LOVED every minute of the noise and chaos that came with them!!! It was WAY too quiet in the house after they left! AND I still miss them! I'll share a pic of Betsy's first introduction to Lillibug (only time she has EVER seen a toddler) and the godchildren wet look!! :)

It took 2 coats of Kilz to cover the DARK green in the bedroom....for it to be painted green again! Sure, we are a little nuts but I love the NEW green so much more!! :)

I MISS everyone at home and in Baton Rouge like crazy!!! Thank goodness M & B2 live close!! I REALLY MISS SEEING THE CUTEST-BABY-IN-THE-WORLD!!! But after WEEKS and WEEKS of begging.....I have finally received some adorable pics that I will share with you! :)

How is that for an update? [and KEL-E I PROMISE I WILL CALL YOU SOON!!! YOU TOO Beth!!!]

For anyone who wants to read the COMPLETE moving saga scroll down to the entry for May 25th where all of the fun starts!! :)

Yes, I have actually had a home for a couple of weeks now! BUT:
1) I'm still sleeping on an air mattress,
2) Betsy likes the actual mattress which is residing in the dining room b/c I can't drag it up the stairs without inflicting damage on said new home,

3) I THINK I may have finished unpacking the last box labeled kitchen,
4) I was supposed to start working TODAY but since a screw up and backlog at the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners have NO IDEA when I'll actually be a licensed OT in the state of Texas,
5) On ONE (and only one) occasion the "kids" have been able to coexist in the same room without causing mayhem and I have the pic below to prove it,

6) the garage STILL looks like I haven't removed EVEN ONE box for unpacking,
7) I GOT the lawnmower to start and succeeded in cutting grass once but it needs it again,
8) we have a 'surprise' guest in the really tiny yard who I'm not sure what to do with as it is a grave for a pup named Charlie,
9) I've been to Home Depot more times than I can count,
10) I'm having a big pity party complete with alcohol this week if anyone would like to join me!!!!!!!

OH WELL, INTO EACH LIFE A LITTLE RAIN MUST FALL!!!!!!!! :) :D But, you know, Odie is happy so all should be good in the world!!
