Settled in


I can’t believe it’s almost two weeks that we’ve been in the new house now! I truly believe I’ve found a little piece of heaven right here on earth! We are absolutely loving our new home! Brian couldn’t have said it better than he did on Sunday. As we were sitting out on the deck, waiting to go to Fenway Park and sit in our Field Box seats (five rows behind the Red Sox dugout – they were a thank you from our realtor) he said, “I feel like I should be packing my bag to go home.” I said, “What?” He said, “It feels like we rented this place for the week and now I should be packing my bag to go home!”

The cats are priceless. This house is a very long house and it’s basically all hardwood floors upstairs. They’ll start out at one end of the hallway, run through the living room, around the corner into the dining room then into the great room and their paws will be going 100 miles an hour but they can not stop themselves! Even Shadow is being more sociable than he ever was. I’m guessing maybe he figures he’s not the only “new guy” in this house! LOL!

My commute so far has been 10 – 15 minutes longer and I am definitely not complaining about that. I kept telling myself it wouldn’t be more than 15 minutes but I honestly believed I was being very optimistic but so far, so good!

I also had my knee surgery done last Tuesday and that went very well also. I joke that after having a hip replacement, arthroscopic surgery is a piece of cake! I see the doc for a follow up next Wednesday so we’ll see how that goes.

I managed to glance at all my emails yesterday but there are now way too many in my inbox awaiting my attention. Therefore, I must leave you now! Hope everyone is well!
