New Address

We finally did it. We finally moved into our new house. After a whole lot of trouble, we actually signed on the house. Because of the state of the economy and the rush to buy a house in time for the tax credit, it is taking extra long to process applications.

regardless, we are SOOOO excited. Going into the process we had a very short list of things that our house should have.
1. room for REXX to run around outside
2. not in a gated or suburb type community

Well we found it. It is exactly what we wanted.
Its a small cottage style home perfect for the two of us...and Rexx. Its only 1000 square feet but good things come in small packages. Very little needs to be done to it and it has 3 bedrooms! Not only that, it has three storage sheds, plenty of attic space and two bathrooms. There is a song that my mom likes to sing to me.

"A good ole boy and a pretty little girl Start all over in a little bitty world A little bitty plan and a little bitty dream It's all part of a little bitty scheme. Well, it's alright to be little bitty Little hometown or a big old city Might as well share, might as well smile Life goes on for a little bitty while..."
Once again, Mom is right. So introducing......the Shanks' residence!

Out of the box

Ok. So talk about getting out of your comfort zone. i am not a blogger by nature but im really looking for a way to share my life with family and friends that are so far away from us. There are so many times in a day when I wish that we could share a moment. There are times when I wish Mom Shanks could see what her wonderful son (my husband) is up to, or when I want Meg's opinion on what outfit I should wear for the first day of school, or to get Mom's opinion on paint colors.
I cant promise great writing or a perfect persona but hopefully it will keep us connected.
