Somewhat unplanned, we ended up having a very productive day today, getting our outdoor toys procured and set up.
After a crazy week where I ended up traveling to Cincinnati and having to drive back because my flight was canceled, Susan and the kids packed up at the Case Haubs’ this morning and we moved to our new house. That is actually not the biggest news of the day.
The biggest news is that we got a puppy! We drove a couple of hours to Barnum, IA to pick up Winthrop “Winnie” Washington Liesland. He is a 50/50 Golden Doodle, whose parents are both reddish and just under 50 pounds. So far, so good.
A few weeks ago we had a huge rainstorm in Des Moines that caused widespread flash flooding. We thought to check our new house after the flooding, but not our storage unit. When we went today to start moving some things into our new house we found some ruined mattresses, pictures, and towels.
We bought a new house! We found it a couple of weeks after we got back and closed on the 13th. Since then we have been painting, buying furniture, and beginning to collect our things from around the city.
We have been finding a lot of painted rocks around the area that we are in. Susan and the kids thought it would be fun to get in on the action.
