Let the games begin! Halfway to fun


Let the games begin!

I’d say we’re officially about halfway here, even thought I thought were were before.  Seems like we are having a loaves and fishes kind of experience.  Even though we’ve packed up who-knows-how-many boxes, it seems Fox Hollow is still full of stuff.  Today when we thought we finally finished with the kitchen, we discovered the dishwasher was full.

However, you will be happy to know, Evan got Rock Band hooked up at the new place, so I think we’ve turned the corner.  It works, COD treated Pikachu and me to a round of Green Day and Aerosmith. Microphone is evidence of the set up.  Yes, that’s Raquel Welch in the background on the Tony’s. (We’re switching between that and the Boston Victory)

Slowly but surely…Unpack two more cartons and off to bed, then a busy week at NEPA’s best fitness center!

The answer is 6 – More Halfway House Adventures


Shivaun demonstrates proper boom-box behavior

The question is how many feet can you walk before seeing a boom box in our new place.  The answer is 6 feet. How many boom boxes you ask?  At last count 8.  How do 3 people end up with 8 boom boxes?  Especially when I brought two others to work for, one that’s in the Yoga room and one  to use in the pool pump room. Good thing, or we’d have 10.

So what do you do when you have 8 boom boxes?  You rock out!  This is me demonstrating. And Yes, the place is a mess.  We haven’t really moved in yet, although we have brought many car and Mariner loads of stuff down, most importantly our bed, the cat and the computer. We are sleeping here with daily trips to the old place.

Hopefully the next picture will be our new roommate rocking out.

I think this picture makes me look fat.  I told Chris that and he said “You’re mentally ill,” which is man-speak for “I love you even if you are fat.”  In fact I’m not really fat, still in my goal size from last years 15 pounds lost!

How did I get onto that?

And by the way…I totally love it here.

Halfway House


I guess you could say we’re in a half-way house.  Living half in our new place, half in the old.  Got the computer set up, when I logged into Pandora it was playing “All Together Now” by the Beatles. Life is good.  Temporarily I am using an adorable desk with a comfortable, functional chair. Love the desk, but it’s not quite right.  I consulted the Magic 8 ball that happened to show up in the move. It said “Definitely.”


Cute but not too functional
