Short on time so just a quick update.

I am short on time but wanted to check in quickly. I had an awesome run last night. I ran well over a mile before I had to stop and walk a little to catch my breath. I found a great place to run and Marco has been riding his bike along side me since it's getting dark earlier here. I am really starting to like running a lot.

I was up at 4 am, wide awake last night and could not go back to sleep. I do this all the time where I wake up and have to go to the little girls room and while in there I start thinking. Next thing I know my mind is racing and I just cannot get back to sleep. Last night was one of those nights. By time 7 o'clock rolled around I had the beginnings of a migraine and ended up staying home from work. Finally around 4 this afternoon I could finally function again and good thing because....

We finally got a call from the Realtors and we got the house!!!!!!!!!!! We finally got the call to come sign papers and pick up the keys!!!! I am so excited I can't stand it. We have been planning and re planning and choosing paint and planning and doing some more planning and talking and thinking and discussing and planning for MONTHS and FINALLY we have keys! What sucks is now I have to work tomorrow and then have a work dinner tomorrow evening. Then Saturday is my birthday (31 years old! WOOHOO!) and we want to have dinner with my friends Alexandra and Theodore but now all I really want to do is get in there and get started!

I think I'll take vacation next week so we can get moved. The houses in Holland come totally gutted whether you're renting or buying so there is tons of stuff to do, paint, pick out light fixtures, get flooring put in and my favorite part...DECORATE!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much for a "quick" update huh? I'll post pictures of the new place as soon as I can! YAY!!!
