A Long, Long Day

I am soooo tired tonight after what was a long, long day for us. We got our keys around noon after signing a gazillion papers. We went and unloaded a few things we'd brought with us and wandered around for a while saying "This is ours." I think a few tears were shed, too.


After that it was a trip to Lowe's to buy gallons of paint, and other things we wanted/needed. This picture doesn't show the colors, but the darker part is a blue you would not want in your living room and the new lighter one is an off white-ish we covered it with.


We were there all day painting and just got home around 10pm. There are two more rooms to paint this weekend.

I had to fight panic off and on all day. A lot of NEW is scary to me, but overall I guess I didn't do too bad. Tomorrow I'll take Xanax with me just in case. Once I have panic attacks somewhere I get scared to go back and I do NOT want that to happen at the new place.

I still excited about it all but am just so damn tired right now. This fat lady is used to sitting around almost all day, every day.

ALSO!!!! A huge thanks to Grace for surprising me with a package in the mail today. She sent the largest bags I've ever seen of Dum Dum suckers and pistachio nuts. I know they are to help us with quitting smoking and even though we've done some backsliding lately, these will help us get back on track. =)
