So, remember my little joke about how I'd be the new fat lady in the neighborhood? Turns out it's not really a joke. There are a bazillion little kids in this neighborhood, and they all have little skinny moms. All of them. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, as I've only met two of them so far.
Two doors down from us is a couple with a four year-old boy and a three year-old girl. The mom,
(I forget her name) Jenny, was really nice. She was telling me about all the people in the neighborhood, all the names of their kids, how all the neighbors know each other and get together, block parties, etc. She was very friendly. And skinny. Then another mom came out to retrieve her son because they were going somewhere. The first lady Jenny had told me this second lady was a runner. And she's totally beautiful and skinny. Sigh. Incidentally, can anyone say the name "Jenny" without thinking of Forrest Gump? "Me and Jenny was just like peas and carrots." Just me? Ok.
Anyone know how I can become a size six by next week?
Would you like to see a few pictures? I knew you would.
This is the family room on the main floor. Steve had this done when I got here. I think he did a nice job.
This is Kylie's room, which we finished today. She is loving having her own room for the first time in her life! She is standing inside of her little walk-in closet, which is totally awesome. Room for clothes and toys!
These are the only two rooms in my house that you are going to see right now, because the rest of them are boxes.
Here we have the boys, Bo and Luke, cavorting in the back yard while I sit under the shade awning with my fat ass in a chair and watch them.
This is the big field right behind our cul-de-sac. That's the school Kylie will go to in the background there. It's about a 60 second walk from our house. Kylie and I took both dogs for a walk over there today. I never took dogs for a walk in Arizona. You know why? Because it was too stinking hot. Look, I'm healthier already. I walked dogs.
Right now it's 73 degrees and overcast, with possible thunderstorms building. How awesome is that?
