A quick update

Just a quick update to let you all know I am still here.  I may be MIA for a few days, because.....WE CLOSED ON OUR HOUSE ON THURSDAY!!!  We had a big scare at closing where they thought we owed several thousand dollars that we of course did not bring with us....they read the sheet wrong.  Shew!  That led to a panicked call to our lender.  Since then, we have received our Korea shipment, unpacked those items (well, I did while Patrick worked on Friday), bought paint, and explained what we want to painters that speak very little English (thank you to Nancy for going over to our house to translate while we are in PA).  We packed up almost everything we have stored at my parents house, and we are heading to MD tomorrow.  On Monday, the movers are packing everything in our old house and moving it all to the new one.  Craziness!  I can't wait to have my furniture again and be in a home that feels like home.

Some of you asked if I picked paint colors.  I am very excited about the "silver sage" color from Restoration Hardware (if you go to the store, they paint their walls this color which is SO much nicer for my brain to visualize than those little swatches), and we are also using their "flax" in a few places.  There is a neutral tan color in the hallways, family room, and our bedroom, and then my wild card color is asparagus which will be in the master bathroom.  I'll take pictures once it doesn't look like chaos.  Thanks for all your interest and kind comments relating to our move.  I'll be back in the swing of things and visiting all of you soon....

Great minds think alike! I used silver sage from Restoration Hardware on my bathroom in Alexandria before I moved!

Good to hear from you again! I'll give you a call later this week. My Korea shipment comes on Tuesday along w/ my official DSL connection. I can't wait! Still trying to figure out the cable vs satellite vs AFN decoder thing for TV.

I love having furniture! My house is actually beginning to look like a home... soon we all will have furniture, and gasp, things hanging on the walls!

Congratulations on your move!! Obviously I can relate to being behind as I don't think you've seen a comment from me in about 5 months. :) What an exciting time you have though -- hope everything goes smoothly from here on out!! Oh, and as for the email situation in the other post -- I *just* cleaned out our email inbox last week and girlfriend, there were (I'm not exaggerating) 2500 emails in there. I just couldn't deal for awhile. I returned some of them but some of them made me cringe because I know I didn't reply. Oh well!! :)

Jason's parents painted their bedroom silver sage. It's a very calming color! Looking forward to the pics! :)
