Just a Quick Note

Well are loving our new house. We didn't finish unpacking before Jacob went back to work like we were hoping but we came pretty close. There were a lot of other things that needed to be done that we weren't expecting so that set us back a little. We are going to have to paint our living room because we removed some shelves that were in there and now the corners of the walls look like a checker board. We are going to paint our bedroom and bathroom as well as they both have a deep purple wall that we don't care much for and also the dining room and kitchen which are yellow right now. 
We started back to school yesterday and Jacob's first day back at work was yesterday as well and today he is on his way to Washington for a Hyster training. He will be back tomorrow evening. It is getting late so i need to get started on school for the day but I wanted to write a little to let you all know what we are up to. -Angie

Great News

Jacob received a call a few minutes ago from our realtor to inform us that every thing went through and the house is ours!!! Yea!! We have had the keys since last night though so we went over for a couple of hours this morning to work on cleaning, and we are going to make another trip over in a little while with all the kitchen and bathroom stuff. So I'd better get back to work but we wanted to let everyone know about the house.  -Angie

Our Latest House Update

We talked to our realtor yesterday and she said that if we wanted to we could go ahead and do all the signing on Monday and that we should be able to start moving in on Tuesday! The kids hadn’t seemed all that excited yet about moving until the other night when Jacob took apart their beds and left their mattresses on the floor for them to sleep on. I am not sure why but to them that was just the coolest thing. It is funny how such a little thing can get them all excited. We took the day off school yesterday so I could get a head start on some of the extra cleaning that  could be done ahead of time and more packing…which is what we will be doing again today.   -Angie

The other day I went to a restaurant that I hadn't been to in some time. It was quite busy but I was in no hurry.

When the waiter came to take my order, I remarked, "You know, it's been ten years since I came in here."

The waiter gave me a sympathetic look and said, "I am sorry sir, but I'm working as fast as I can."

BBQ Sauce Recipe

My mother-in-law asked for this recipe so I thought I would put it on here for her and anyone else who might want to give it a try.

In small saucepan mix together
1/3 c. ketchup
1/3 c. mustard
1/3 c. bottled bbq sauce
1/4 c. vinegar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. butter
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Cook on medium heat for about 10 min. This is really good on fully cooked shredded pork roast for bbq pork sandwiches. I haven’t tried it on anything else yet.
