cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Home, Sweet Home (posted by Lani)

Our house has been, to say the least, somewhat of a mess since we moved in. Boxes everywhere, stacks of packing paper reaching towards the ceiling, you name it. Moving is a lot of work, ya'll. I'm happy to report, however, and even to provide pictorial evidence, that we're making progress. Proof? Here's the main level of the house.

The master bedroom, bath and closet area is pretty much unpacked too. Yay! Now onwards to the downstairs ... family room, guest bedrooms, Steve's office and our yarn room. Ouch. Lots of work to do down there.

Our wonderful new neighbors had a Welcome-To-The-Frozen-Mountaintop party for us last Saturday night; we got to meet pretty much everyone who lives nearby, and enjoy good food, good drink, and interesting conversation that didn't center around boxes and snow shovels. The opportunity to relax and enjoy a purely social situation was wonderful and much needed! I've joined two of my neighors a couple of times during the past week for a home workout (they try to get together 3 to 4 times a week, as schedules permit) and let me tell you, that's really been nice too. Granted I'm not at my best -- I'm pretty beat already from unpacking and toting boxes around -- it's so nice to have some non-box-lifting workout activity and the extra social contact with smart, funny women (Caroline is an RN, and Margie is a psychologist who's currently writing a book). Steve, meanwhile, is working long hours and muttering about it, but he's enjoying himself immensely -- he just wouldn't be Steve without the grumbling. And we're both loving the house and the views.

In other news we're under contract for our home back in Virginia, with a closing date of January 28th. We had honestly expected that it would be at the very least March before the Norfolk house had even a nibble, but Robin pulled a rabbit out of her hat and got us a fabulous offer in under a month. We've been very fortunate to have had two fabulous realtors, Nancy Kirkendall in Colorado and Robin DiBuono in Norfolk, helping us make this move, and I can't recommend either of them highly enough.

Glad that the unpacking is happening and things are getting put right in the new house (all the pics of the scenery & house are lovely by the way)
