I know I've told you already that we have two boys living with us. We've rearranged lots of things in our lives lately because of this fact so my thinking was; "Why not the furniture too?" I mean, if you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly. In my defense, we've had children sleeping on our bedroom floor on an air mattress for over a month and creativity is not my gift if you catch my drift.

We have an office downstairs that would be perfect for the boys' room so I set off this week to do a transformation. It meant moving around some furniture, including my computer which explains my absence from blogville.

It also meant moving two armoires and a couch that had nothing to do with the office transformation but isn't that half the fun of being a girl? Trey was less than pleased about moving the armoires because, well, I loaded them with pennies first just to give him a little challenge.

Oh, I kid.

What he really loved was that my friend Jennifer and I moved the computer into the kitchen and drilled holes into the cabinets to strategically hide all the cords, etc. We did this before checking to make sure the computer would actually work in the kitchen which led him to call me impetuous.

I had to look it up.

I'm pretty sure he didn't mean it as a compliment.

I've got our computer set up in the kitchen (with holes in the cabinets... you can buy plastic grommets at Office Max that make it look nice and clean). If you put the computer inside a cabinet as I did, the key is cool air. I cut a hole in the side of the cabinet (hidden down where your legs are when you sit) and put a computer fan there. Then I cut holes in the part of the cabinet just inside the door that sticks out a bit over the floor... you know what I'm talking about?

Anyway, the fan draws in cool air from those holes into the cabinet, and is pretty much silent.

Thats a big word.

I did tell you that we were leaving tomorrow didn't I? Afraid that would be a low point in our communication to discover our family affairs by reading them on my blog:)

Anyhoo, will miss you!

I just wanted to post a comment even though you don't know me. My family has known the Hill's for a long time. My dad is Randy Emery and used to coach at HP.

Anyways, I somehow stumbled upon your blog and think that your stories and family are very inspiring.

Many blessings!
