Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketLadies and Gentlemen, do not be alarmed at the sudden lack of internet-based communication from the Nebels. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties otherwise known as “moving-induced Internetectomy.” The experts have been consulted, and are in agreement that this condition will be easily remedied in 10-14 days. It’s a tough diagnosis to deal with, but we’re going to perservere and have faith in God and the Insight Cable Guy to help us through it.

See ya’ on the flip side.

My life is whelming right now. Is that a word? I know that I can be overwhelmed, I’ve been underwhelmed a few times. So is whelming just the part of the word that means things are happening, things are bubbling and brewing and moving along. (Not so much so that I can’t cope, as in over- and certainly not in such a way that I’m unimpressed and disappointed, as in under-…. just happening and rolling and moving. Whelming. Right?)

If you haven’t checked the ticker over there on the right, {go ahead… it’s the pink box} I’m moving in a week. A WEEK! Here’s how my week looks right now:
Friday: Pack.
Saturday: Chris on call. Pack.
Sunday: Chris postcall. Pack.
Monday: Chris off. I’m getting a pedicure and a blissful half hour of peace & quiet. Other than that, pack.
Tuesday: Chris on call. Pack
Wednesday: Chris postcall. Pack.
Thursday: Movers here to load up all our stuff. Friend Barbara may watch Jonas for part of the day. Start cleaning apartment.
Friday: Finish cleaning apartment. Turn in keys at apt office. Drive to Elsmere, Kentucky. First night in new house!

I have so much to do, and I don’t know if I have enough energy, time, and hands to keep up with Jonas and all this stuff. ‘Yikes’ does not begin to describe it. I’m so sorry for being a giant whiner. I do think I can handle it. I mean, I have to – no choice in the matter. I’m just not looking forward to the next few days. And now….. back to my boxes. Ta!

We are buying a house! We’ve been house-hunting in the Cincinnati area for several months, and last weekend we went up for 3 days and saw about a dozen homes with our realtor. After plenty of discussion, we settled on one and last night we drafted our offer. This afternoon, we found out that our offer was accepted! Closing is May 31 and we’ll move in June 15.

Here are a few pictures (mind you, this is their decor, not mine!) from the realtor’s website.

Hopefully it won’t be long until we have furniture in the living room again, and I promise I’ll do pictures of our new apartment as soon as it looks like we really live here 😉 but for now, at least we have this beautiful scene greeting us from the living room’s balcony every day:
