we have not had any internet access for a week. again. man, this whole 'getting settled' thing is taking far too long for my liking! earlier this week we had a leaky shower head and toilet (both in the master bathroom. i don't know what chris does when he is in the bathroom...) we've finally got baby gates up on our stairs (as opposed to a bunch of boxes). i am 95% done hanging up my clothes in the closet. the rule of 'if you haven't worn it in a year then throw it out' does not apply to me- having been pregnant for two years straight. so i actually had a lot of fun looking at clothes i haven't worn since 2006. we went on a temporary spending freeze cause we were buying so much random stuff for the house- like baby gates and clothes hangers. that lasted about 24 hours. but we are definitely slowing down on the amount of stuff that we 'need' for the new house now. chris and i are in the midst of trying to stain a ginormous desk. we have one coat of stain on. you're supposed to wait 4-6 hours to put on the second coat. well, it's been about 26 hours now. obviously the makers of the stain we are using do not have one infant and two toddlers! but hopefully that project will be done soon and hopefully it will look good. fingers crossed. my mom is coming into town on saturday and i cannot wait! i haven't seen her since september of last year i think. almost a whole year! one of the kids are awake so i gotta go. just wanted to check in and let you know that we are all alive and well! actually, lily, sungu and jeehon all caught colds. topher and lily have teeth coming in. so there's been lots of cranky crying. BUT there has also been lots of laughs. so yeah, we are doing well.
