This Is My Whining Post.

I don't know if I'd actually call this whining, but you might. I just woke up from my first night in our house. Obviously this isn't the first night I've ever stayed here (if you're not following, we bought our house from Joshua's mom) but it was my first night in our new house in our new bedroom with my old bed. I'm used to waking up to lots of noise at home, the boys are always screaming at around 5:30/6:00am and it makes it easier to wake up (not more pleasant, but easier). I used to see my whole family first thing in the morning, and it was rather difficult this morning. I know I'm being a baby, and you can go ahead and call me one, but this isn't as easy and I thought it was going to be. So I'm sitting at my laptop, looking at my furniture-less living room and thinking of all the things I need to do to get the furniture in here and it is making me more and more anxious. I didn't sleep very well last night either, on that I'm not sure why. Probably because I've slept in the same bedroom for 13 years. I love that Josh and I got a house, but it will take some time to get used to my new living arrangements.

Enough of that. I have lots of pictures to post of things I've done to the house, but my camera cord is still at my parents house. I got my office finished, and I love it. I finished painting our bedroom yesterday, and it looks great. I need to run over to their house tonight so I'll try to remember to grab the cord. My mom is quite possibly my absolute favorite person, she came over last night and scrubbed the bathrooms for me. I don't think I could've done it, but she did an amazing job. Now I have to keep up on it. Yuck.

Josh and I took our marriage compatibility survey yesterday. Our church requires us to take it in order to get married. We don't have to go through any formal counseling or anything like that, we just both took the survey separately without discussing our answers and then we will go back in February to discuss our answers with our pastor. We talked about how we answered after we both finished it, and I think our answers were pretty much the same. Some of them were no brainers though. You had to pick either strongly disagree, disagree, agree, or strongly agree. One of the statements was something like: bringing children into our marriage will automatically solve all of our problems. I'm not kidding. I hope people don't feel that way.

I also need to post pictures of our new dining room table! I love it. It is similar to the one I posted a long time ago, but it's a little smaller, it looks great in here. Now I'm working on taking down the wallpaper in the dining area and painting the living room. I'd like to get our furniture in here by next weekend...I don't want to have to keep watching TV in the basement. : )
