Just wanted to give an update on a couple of things.
1. The Blog. As you know, Matty and I are moving in together October 1st. This means we have a lot to do between now and then. So, we're probably going to be posting a little less frequently for a while, at least until we get a little more settled. But, we'll see. We might be putting up something 2 or 3 times a week instead how much we're doing now.
2. Matty's Request. Matty wanted me to share something. He was talking to me about some of the things he's working on with this school counselor he's been seeing. They have this resource center for students who have different kinds of learning disabilities and attention deficit issues. They also help students who want to learn better study skills, etc. So, he's got some good "general" suggestions about how to manage things from there and asked me if I would be willing to help him come up with some "specific" ideas we could look at. Of course I'd do anything to help, so we're going to be sitting down after I look at all those "general" ideas and help him see how to apply them to his own situation. It makes me feel good that he asked for my help. I'd do anything for him, like I know he'd do anything for me.
3. The Big Move. Just an update on "The Big Move." We finally decided to buy a King size bed! You guys were right, those monsters are expensive. But, we've been saving money for quite a while now and last weekend went out to "test drive" a few models! That was so much fun. We went to this really cool furniture "paradise" that's popular here in this area and the sales people were so much fun. We told our saleswoman what we were looking for but just wanted to start with the bedroom. She was so cool and so much fun. She listened to our pros and cons of Queen vs King and then said she had a recommendation if we wanted to hear it.
She said since it's our first home and we were so cute together (!!!), she would highly recommend the King size bed. "You'll have so much more room to sleep. If you want to cuddle, you can do that. If you want to spread out, you can do that. And, you won't be falling off the mattress when you're having your fun time together." Can you believe this woman? And her sense of humor and comfort level with us? She was so excited for us!
She got us to get on some of the mattresses to see what kind of "firmness" we wanted. We just looked at her and burst out laughing. Then she got the joke about "firmness on the mattress," and nearly died laughing with us. We were all laughing so hard, some other customers came over to see what was so funny. We told her we wanted her to help us furnish the rest of the house when we got ready.
We're still voting on what to call our bedroom. Right now it's a tie: "Master Bedroom" has one vote (Brad), and "Sex Chamber" has one vote (guess who?). ..... In spite of all the stress, this really is a lot of fun! It's also fun to have all of you share our excitement. But no sharing our bed in the "Master Bedroom/Sex Chamber." There's always the guest bedroom you guys can use!
