LIfe is Good

We've been here one full week, and I think we're all finally getting comfortable in our new home. Last night we ordered a pizza from a place up the street and it was the best darn pizza we'd had in about 10 years. Seriously. I know I'll have a hard time finding decent barbecue around here when I have a craving, but hot damn I'm glad to be back among the land of real pizza makers!

After dinner Kostyn and I spent an hour twirling and dancing around the family room to the beat of Chris' drums, and then to the music of his guitars, which are all out in the open now for easy access. Chris is loving that, after the drums spent so long in a closet before the move.

The night was capped off with blizzards bought at the Dairy Queen less than a mile from our house (God I'm in trouble....) and watching Obama come out dead even, if not on top, in a debate that was supposed to be McCain's big night to shine. What a great Friday evening.

Today's agenda has just three things on it: Buy shoes for the Bear, who has been wearing socks and sandals, in a fashion statement circa 1990, since arriving here because he's outgrown his sneakers (I hadn't noticed that since he's been in sandals all summer!); buy ingredients for chili, which we've been waiting to make until it "feels like chili weather"; and watch Penn State crush Illinois tonight.

Let's hope it all goes according to plan......

Awesome! I'm glad that I didn't give you a recommendation. :) I don't know what sort of place you're looking for in the shoe department, but there is a Stride Rite in the Harrisburg Mall. It's not far from you. That's where we get Gracie's shoes. Were just there today, in fact.

Go State!

Aren't you psyched to get all the games on TV now?

Can we come over for chili?

Are you sure that socks w/sandals fashion statement is so outdated because I know a three year old who would be happy to live out the winter that way. (Well, along with his purple rain boots.) He only just got sneakers last week because we were "going north to the cold".

Glad you're settling in. We're hoping to get a lot done this weekend and maybe talk about some painting. Hmmm, maybe you and the chili should come here....

P.S. Thanks ; )
