still moving

so, we've moved to carson city. we are a lot closer to derek's work now. we will be saving so much in gas as soon as we have all our stuff here and nothing left in dayton. we have until friday to get everything out of there. the funny thing is the electricity is still on there so whenever i go it's not killing me and i can vacuum still. i guess the electric company left it on and put it in the complex's name, but i've been using the juice the last couple of days. oh, well. so today i am gonna unpack some more boxes and go out and buy a table for my dining room. it will be so nice to have a place for us to sit and eat. right now the kids have been using the coffee table in the living room. i want to get a pretty small table, but one that can have a leaf added maybe. i like small tables because that's all i need with just us, but also they are good for games. however, with in a year i will need a bigger table than just a four seater so it would be good if i got one that expanded. if i can't find an add in leaf kind then i will just want a long table that seats six, but like a rectangle, not an oval. my sister in law michelle has a kitchen table that i want. well, maybe just like it except a little bit darker. hers is a really light colored wood and i want a more country toned wood, if you know what i mean. most of the wooden stuff i have is the about the same color and i'd like to keep it that way. i don't want all my stuff to just look thrown together. if they were in different rooms it would be okay. my bedroom has wood that is painted white. we have three dressers. the kids room has two dressers and they are the same light brown as everything else, but their beds are going to be painted. i guess i don't mind painted wood alongside varnished wood. the kids beds are going to be green and yellow. they got primer put on them yesterday and i think the color will go on today. they will look so nice. andrew really likes yellow and emmy really likes green. they go together, but once the kids are separated the beds will still look nice.
