Busy times! [Jun. 1st, 2005|07:02 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Everybody arrived yesterday afternoon - they've unloaded the moving truck and are bringing it back to the rental place!

So I've got a full house - me & kaokame of course, and then my sisters sunkachina and kenderdrache, and my brother-in-law grimsguhnome and then Kachina's little baby Theodore! All in one house! Chi and Theo are here for the week, but Amber and Chris are here for good! Until they find an apartment and Amber finds a job at least, hehe, and they have promising leads on both already. One apartment they are looking at is a garage apartment literally 1/2 a block from us - how cool is that?

We've been out running errands and grocery shopping, etc. (We'll need lots of groceries, lol) and that kind of stuff all day. Now I'm going to try to start a painting (little Theodore keeps getting into my paints, naughty monkey). It's funny - Chris is going to set up his painting station caddy corner to mine (he paints fantasy figurines for a living) so it's really starting to be extra artsy around here!

I'm not sure how much work I'll be getting in today, but you can peek in on me HERE!

The market is flooded right now due to all these places going condo (Siena, Georgetown, etc.) so Amber and Chris should have no problem getting a good deal! New 1 bedroom garage apartments typically go for ~$950 and studio apartments go for ~$750 - nice thing is that water, electric, and cable are typically included in garage apartments.

Sorry I'm turning into an advert

I see there's a 1 bedroom with a den available for $1,100 - yay space!

End advertisement.

Oh yes! They've found a handful that look promising, there are some good deals out there, especially considering some of them even include cable & cable internet with the utilities!

It's very nice! Currently the closest relatives we have are about 1250 miles away, so having Chris and Amber move here is extra cool!

They have those Crayola Color wonder Finger paints for kids that Arent messy at all!!! (Clear infact until you put them on the "paper") My kids do that while I paint with my paints, Keeps them happy...Maybe he would like some of those? (Maybe it would keep him out of yours!lol)

And WOW that is a full house!!! It's great you get along with them!!! I think if my sister moved in ...eventually you would see us on the evening news with some armed standoff about who wont get out of the bathroom and stop borrowing my shoes without asking (Just going on childhood memories...lol)

That is so super awesome. I understand about the food thing. Shoot, we have just Hilda or my mom come and we had to grocery shop and we tend to keep our house pretty full on groceries. makes me worry about larger groups more than just one person coming.

yay for theo-he is just growing up now. just time to sit back and watch.
