We finally moved into the house about a month ago! XD The renovations are not complete, but it's comfortable enough for now. Not having to commute as much makes life a lot easier. I cooked our first dinner the other night and it was very tasty :) I did realize, however, that I'm still without many essentials in the kitchen (like a cutting board...) >_< There's so many little things to buy! It's amazing what all goes into a house. We've been non-stop busy for so long now, it's nice to take the time to relax a little.

We finally hooked up the big computer and networked all of the laptops! =D I'm very happy about that because we'll finally be able to update again. The cel stack has been growing, so it'll be nice to share the new goodies. The WC comic should also be continuing soon as well.It's obviously more complex than simply scanning cels, but we're both becoming kind of antsy. We need that creative outlet!

We met with the Brinks representative yesterday. They walked through the house with us and we told them what kind of security we wanted. Since the house is huge and we have 6 outside doors, the installation will cost $1,000. T-T They're coming tomorrow to install everything. I highly recommend Brinks, they really know what they're doing. All of their employees are bonded, drug tested and FBI background checked.

A stray dog snuck into our backyard recently. She closely resembled a dog we own, so we almost didn't notice the extra dog O.o My in-laws tried to get her adopted, but nothing seemed to pan out for her. I hoped we'd get to keep her and it all kinda worked out ^_^ I've named her Lolo and gave her her first bath the other day. She whimpered but looks great now. In fact, I gave all 4 of the dogs their bathes. Then it rained literally seconds after I finished. -_- hehe...

Speaking of dogs, I've had to take care of a blind dog recently. He's quite old and super spoiled, but I try to stay firm with him. The owners want to keep him inside all the time and the dog pretends like he doesn't need to go outside, like, EVER! Once he's outside, he gets brave and runs around, but getting him out there can be tricky. It's amazing how much we love our animals and can bond with them and such.

Anyone see Talladega Nights yet? That movie looks very funny. Some friends gave us a gift card for AMC theatres and we've been seeing a ton of new movies (the price for admission was raised to about $8 so the gift card was quite valuable to us).

Lately, I've been rewatching a lot of movies. Like Sid and Nancy and the First Blood trilogy. Apparently they are making First Blood IV? Wowzers! It's amazing how different part 1 is from part 2. You can really tell James Cameron was involved with part 2 (to compare, think of the difference between Alien and Aliens).

I've got some pictures of the house. Post them? Maybe! :P Take care everyone, have a nice week.

We actually have 8 dogs. 4 at this house and 4 at our other house across the street. Thanks for the comments guys!

I will post some pictures in the Photo Album soon, I''ll blog when that happens. I''m tired right now from cleaning all day ;_;

YAY! A new house! Count me in with the "wanna see pics" crowd. And, some pics of the doggies, too. It''s so cool that you guys were able to keep the stray that showed up. It''s wonderful knowing he has a kind and loving home -- something every dog deserves. *hugs to ''ya*

AWWWW thanks texy! _<

6 doors! A huge house? Since my house is small by today''s standards, you have me drooling with even that much detail! (And sometimes I want to shoot the people on House Hunters when they turn their noses at houses twice the size of mine!).

I can appreciate your pet collection. We''ve never gone out and bought or got a cat from someone else. They just show up and get moved in right away (except for a very timid old guy who''ll come to us to eat but who won''t get de-feralized). You''re good people, even if that many dogs make mealtimes a bit chaotic.

And - gasp! You have TWO houses? And more dogs?

Congrats on finally moving into your new home! And yes post a few pics of the interior, or maybe incorporate them as backgrounds into the WC strips? Either way, it''d be nice to see the abode you are forming. Congrats to you both you lovebirds as you create your lovenest. ^_^
