Ah, other than mad photo snapping, what have we been up to lately?
A whole lot of running around. I spent time in Midland, TX. (More fun than words can describe, I assure you. Oh, but I did see Matt Lauer in the Midland airport. Quite the celeb sighting, for me, at least. And, how bad is it that my brain wanted to type 'citing' three times before it finally allowed me out of legal citation land!) Kyle has spent time in St. Louis, MO and Oakridge, TN.
We continue to unpack boxes. They are MOSTLY gone, but there is that one closet in the guest room. Walk-in closets are a blessing and a curse. Those boxes are totally out of sight, out of mind. But, we will be having guests over the Thanksgiving holiday, and so they can't stay out of mind too much longer.
Today (after a plane snafu yesterday), my sister, Janna, and her husband, Eugene, arrive in Houston. This will be Eugene's first trip to the U.S. I'm not sure even they know where in the U.S. they will ultimately settle, but we are all very, very excited to have them much closer.
And, finally, I am doing my own personal happy dance that it is indeed November 8, and, while it is a tad chilly outside in the evenings, I have honestly not even considered breaking out my winter coat. Hallelujah!
