Movin on up

It's official. We got our house!!!
We closed yesterday afternoon.
It's a great house for us. On a very quiet street close to the grade school.
It also has an in ground pool!
The pool needs some work, but hopefully it will be ready to go next summer.
Jack is very proud. When my sister Michelle came he showed her around and was so excited, he said "we have plenty of space" and "it's so awesome".
Jack still has a hard time understanding that the house does not come with all of the stuff that he saw when we looked at it while fully furnished. He also thought that we would be living with Clayton (or Plankton as he calls him), the former home owner's son.
The carpets are getting cleaned today and then tomorrow the real moving process can start.
Sadly, on Friday my internet service will be shut off and not back on at the new house until the middle of next week. I begged the Verizon guy to try and get it on quicker and even asked what I would do in case of a Britney related emergency, he said he understood, and since I am fairly certain he was gay (yes, my gadar is that good, I can tell over the phone), I think he really did understand.
About a week was the best he could do.
I am already preparing for the withdrawal symptoms.
I plan to check in daily and hope to get in a post or two.
SARAH SELLZ is getting in some HUGE shipments to prepare for some upcoming special events, so I will do my best to share the new arrivals with you.
Hopefully in my absence my sisters will make an appearance on SARAH SEZ as guest authors.
My nephew Gabe has always wanted his own blog, perhaps now would be a good time for him to give it a test run. I bet he has a lot of interesting stuff to say.
This afternoon Jack & I are heading to Champaign with Amber, RJ, and Heidi to see the BACKYARDIGANS on stage at the Assembly Hall. Jamee and Emily Baltzell will be meeting us there. The BACKYARDIGANS is a super cute cartoon on Nickelodeon. I love the theme song. I am sure we will have a great time!

Did you watch last night?
Maddy needs a good spanking.
Can you imagine what that girl is going to be like as a teenager?

And then we have the Duggar's.
I'm a hard ass (there you go Rebekah), but for some reason, watching them talk about it, saving your first kiss for your wedding day did not seem like that crazy of a concept to me.
I hope they film the honeymoon for an upcoming episode on TLC.

The Duggar's are good people. That Michelle seems like she is as nice as they come. Shockingly, she admitted that she and Jim Bob did not save it (the kiss) for their wedding day. Michelle had some boyfriends before Jim Bob...GASP!! what a hussy!

Long post... lots to soak in...

YAY for the house! Hip Hip Hooray for the pool!!! :-) Sounds like a great house! Can't wait to see the pix!

I saw the Duggers last night - about that whole 1st kiss... ummm... I guess it's a nice theory. However, I firmly believe you need to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. Could she really stay married to a really bad kisser??? ;-) If they air the honeymoon... I'm guessing all 30 seconds of "it" will be interesting!!! ;-) heheheee!

Congrats on the house, that is great!! Jack will adjust just fine to all of his stuff being moved in.
Have a great time at the play.

I am so excited for y'all and your new house!

I am so jealous that you are going to see The Backyardigans!

I too love their theme song!!!

I wanted to take Grady to Backyardigans (I secretly love them!), but he said he didn't want anything to do with going. Oh, well....Have Fun!
