[ fEELiNG thE hEAt ]

Okay so life's been a little nuts lately, we're slowly and I mean slower than snails pace getting settled in the house. I wake each morning to see the mess that was there the night before. Where have cleaning fairies all gone? I must have left them in NY I'm sure they're just sitting in the basement wondering where the hell we are. But to add to the crazies we've had to wait forever to get our internet set up we've been quietly stealing internet from several of our neighbors but I tell you nothing frustrates me more than when someone is using their internet and it impedes on the speed at which my internet runs. How dare they use their internet while I am, jerks!

But as if that wasn't stupid enough a week ago today we lost 1/2 power in our house. Of course our first thought crap something has already gone wrong, as I'm sure most people think when they buy an older home. But after two days of 1/2 power we finally got an electrician out there just to tell us oh, TXU put a boot on your meter. What???? Okay let me explain 1/2 power so you understand this....We lost our heat, hot water and appliances, so basically everything thing that makes life seem livable. We had our televisions so we didn't go completely insane seeing that we are t.v. junkies and working hard to make Deals one too. Most of the lights in the house worked and about half the plugs. So that's what I mean by 1/2 power. The electrician said we shouldn't have power at all but the "technician" who put it on didn't do it properly so we were still receiving power from that leg of our electricity. To move the story along, I'll just say the 3rd-7th day of this ordeal weren't as pleasant although we did realize on day 6 we are stupid, both Matt and I. By day 4 the house temperature had dropped to 49 degrees, I like it cool but it was rough, we did get space heaters for D's room and our room. D's room never left the 70's thanks to the space heater so he was good our room on the other hand didn't get quite as warm....anyways it finally got fixed today.

See the whole mix up was with our new provider. I signed up for service in December just before Christmas and for some reason they set our connect date at Jan. 31..What? I argued with them but apparently in the world of electricity everything takes 3 business days no matter who's fault it is....
So now that the crazies are subsiding maybe we can get on track again. I'm so ready for some sort of a schedule especially with D. I'm anxious for him to have a place to play and I'm really anxious to get him in his room. He did turn 7 months old during all this craziness and the slacker mom in me hasn't posted pics and I'm still not but I will soon, very very soon, unless I decide life just wouldn't be the same without the verbal beatings by my fellow bloggers and friends...

Oh gosh I almost forgot to tell you all why Matt and I are so stupid. It took us until day 6 to think about starting a fire in the fireplace...duh, right? Fire...sigh we laughed about it but really I think we were both a bit embarrassed....So I don't have D's 7 month pic ready yet but here's some new pics of D and just so you guys know I already have my next 2 post written and ready to post! Hello organization!

My Gma made a hat to match D's blue sweater, how cute is this, we put it on him with the rim rolled up and he immediately pulled down and just left it.....

Just a fun bath time shot!

We got a new stroller and Deals absolutely LOVES it, he loves facing forward and we figure no new stroller ride wouldn't be complete with out his first Chick-fil-a drink! He really just loves the straws but he does love drinking from them, he's becoming such a big boy, I love it! Oh and his little personality is starting to shine, you can see it in the pics.

A New post! Woo HoO! We have some big news on our homefront too! [no, I am not pregnant... I wish] But I will post soon when I can stop crying and I have some people to talk to before I blast any such news on my blog. LOL.

Love all the new pictures, and I am sorry to hear about the crazy electricity story! Yikes!

He is handsome-- and he likes good food. Maybe he can take Aliza out on her first date to Chickfila? They can drink from straws together!
