Pulling Hair, Biting Nails, and Finding a House

Ah... the Metroplex. What is to be our home for the next 7-10 years (at least!). Arriving on Sunday night, we are still here, still inhaling different allergens, and still trying to accommodate a 5 week old baby. Still, the weather has been mercifully good to us and traffic has not been near as bad as predicted. There's a Starbucks that serves great Venti Cinnamon Dolce lattes a mile from Cassie and Curtis' beautiful new town-home in Euless, my Google Maps has worked like a charm on my Blackjack, and the VW has handled as though it was born in Dallas.

Pulling Hair (Finding Internet) -

It's as though this area has never heard of that thing that we've been blessed with in Lubbock (and evidently don't really think about much) - FREE wi-fi usage at our local coffee shops. I did not know all of the hoops that you have to jump through just to use the internet at Starbucks establishments! Supposedly, SBucks is moving to an all-free wi-fi format, but, until then, it's like filing taxes! Yes, I finally did get it up and running this morning, but that's after an arduous hour of effort yesterday morning. Of course, that gave me a little more time to befriend the Rwandan-born barista and also to people-watch, something I hope will become a regular thing here in the Metroplex.

Biting Nails (Changing in the Dark) -

Part of the fun with hanging out with a girl as cool as Laura Kate (not to mention serving a wife as beautiful and loving as Carrie) is the daily changing of the diapers. LK has not been a "bad" baby in this area, for sure, but there are times when I wonder, "How in the world did you already mess that thing up? Big Bird has only been on for like 10 minutes!" (Big Bird, the Sesame Street character, is one of the constants on here diapers... good ol' Pampers Swaddlers). Compound that with changing her in the dark (there's very little light from the window in the room we're staying) and you get quite an experience.

Let's just say that I am very glad that I gave up the habit of biting my nails a couple of months ago.

Finding a House (To Little Elm, or Not to Little Elm?) -

It is looking like we have possibly found our house!!! We will know for sure by Friday, but we're praying for results TODAY! If everything works out, we will be living off of Ponderosa Ridge, in Little Elm. Right across the street from Chavez Elementary, the Little Elm High School football stadium (think Ratliff, here), and just a couple of minutes from the church we will potentially be attending. By the way, the next time you move, do some research before you go of potential churches and then stop in and talk to them for a while. Evidently, when you stop in and tell them that you haven't moved yet but were just wanting to check them out, pastors tend to get really excited!

Thank you for praying! Keep praying that everything with the house and the move goes through smoothly!
