I'm officially a resident of Santa Fe!

Well, after a long week, the movers finally got to our house around 11 Saturday morning. It took them 12 hours to load, but did take breaks b/c it was over 100 degrees. too hot.
Sunday, dad and i headed out about 9 am, drove ALL day long...the dogs were awesome (0nly a couple of episodes of gas) and M was incredible. She is the WORST traveler ever, and we totally prayed for travelers mercy as we got on the Interstate in Arkansas. Our mercy consisted of M being a complete angel the entire trip! Finally we got to Santa Fe, and the new house at nearly midnight. OMGoodness, we are SO tired. We fed the dogs, unloaded and detached the trailer, blew up the air mattress, watched M run and scream through the house and crashed!

I only had one problem....my air mattress collapsed within like an hour. I had Emma sleeping nearly on top of me (she an 80+ pound lab!), my dad sleeping across the room, and didn't sleep much. I woke up at like 5:30! I need my sleep, seriously. I don't function well without it. I can't remember things, I get snappy, it's so not pretty! Oh, and on top of that...no cell phone reception at the house. So, if you need to talk and I don't answer the cell, call the house! LOL!

So, we were all up and out of the house by 8 am. Found an awesome little bakery for breakfast. We ran errands to Target, PetSmart, Best Buy, Lowes, etc. Dad went to play golf with a partner in his firm, then M and I came home. We ate yummy Whole Foods for lunch and sat around, me dosing off and on in a lawn chair!!! How sad. Finally the cable guy--also the Internet-- came and I was in celebration to have access again. Seriously went through withdrawals. I couldn't even check emails from my cell. OMGoodness.

So, now I am watching the movers unload the truck, praying they finish soon. It's nearly 11 pm and I need to sleep. I'll try to post pics soon. I took my picture of the day yesterday of the wind farms right outside of Amarillo. Plus, the coolest sunset and the dogs/M asleep in the backseat. Too fun! Hope all is well...I hope to get designing or scrappin sooner than later! Thanks for all the well wishes with moving!
