(Christmas Tree in the new house)
Christmas has come and gone. Now the search for the perfect post-Christmas sale is on. While Liam and I are not big into crazy shopping sprees, there are a few things we need and bargins, they are a calling.
There will be many changes in the new year, but we'll have to wait on announcing those for a while to make sure some things actually pan out. I am excited to find out about grades, but not overly anxious. And tomorrow we leave to go HOME!!!! I can't wait to see the new house up close in personal...
This post is continued from where I left off a couple of days ago. I am now here in the new house, laying on the sofa bed, the only piece of furniture that we have downstairs, other than a rocking chair.
So far, we have purchased a dining room table and chairs and a sofa set. Score! 20% off everything. Next up is hanging curtains, right now we have those Chinese room divider things propped up against the windows. Classy! Living next door to all of our friends has been really great, but also very drunky inducing. All of the wives are off, well don't work and some of the hubbies are also not working for the holiday. Everyone is enjoying drinking into the wee hours of the night and talking about ridiculous topics, such as the differences between American, English, and Scottish words for things: robe, dressing gown, goobie (something like that) Unfortunately, Liam is working, so late nights are only until 10pm or so, but NYE should be quite interesting.
It's going to be a fancy dress (costume) party. We're trying to improvise a costume on a very limited supply of mardi gras masks, blankets and flip flops. I can't wait!
