House so far

We are building a house... It has not been an EASY project! It has actually been stressful. I am not sure if it is hard because we are in Kueait and building in Florida... Or if it is just normal while building.
I should be getting weekly updates and photos... But. I don't! I have been using only the Homebuilder Rep and I did not get a realtor.

Here are the pictures that I received a couple of weeks ago!
 I am hoping to get an update soon. We are waiting to see what the shutters, stone accents and all the colors will look like!



Gustavo and I will be going home in November to close on the house. There is so much that still needs to be done!
To help knock out some of the small things. We have been ordering online and we have been sending the packages to my Bestie's (Tina Turner) house. We will send a POD to her house and then have it shipped to our house.
So far we have gotten:
1. The kids' bathroom stuff. (Nautical Theme)
2. Decor for Mimster's bedroom (Black, Pink and White: Paris Theme)
3. Decor for DJ's room (Space-The final frontier!)
4. Small paintings and accents for around the house
5. A fireplace:)
6. We got our bed clothes

I like to try and get the things that we like opposed to having to settle for what the store has. Plus- Buying EVERYTHING at once is a heck of a task!

I am tasking Gustavo to a Honey Do list when we arrive.
I feel awful that we are not taking the kids this time, but... I think that it is better. They just got back from America in August and it was 5k for the tickets! Since we are not going to be in the States very long, We decided that it was best for the kids to stay put. We will be doing a lot of running around and there will not be much for the kids to do.
(No TV, NO video games, No toys, ETC.)
I am so excited to get to the house and start decorating the house!
I have SO many ideas in my head!
I am really excited to see my family at home and I hope that I will be able to see them all!

Back to Blogging!

I know that I have been MIA lately... Thank You for all the people who took the time to check up on me!

I went ahead and posted... I will write more soon on each post! I just want everyone to know that I am still alive:)

I got an email from a "LOVELY" reader who made a comment about how I do not write about things that are important.... Hmmm... My FAMILY is the MOST IMPORTANT thing to me.
The reason that I write this blog is to vent and to make an online journal of their travels and outtings. It is something that I want them to remember.
I was taught long ago to stay away from sticky subjects such as religion and politics. If I have a strong belief in something at the moment, then I will write about it. As far as me writing about "nails"... According to my statistics... I get a lot of hits on those posts; you may not like them, but other people do.

Also- We are getting ready for a Thailand trip for Mim's Golden birthday!!! I plan to take LOTS of pictures!

Tweet Tweet

Following the friendly advice of Expatandthecity I have made a TWITTER ACCOUNT...
www.twitter.com
I am generally NOT pro Social Media... But exposure and entertainment is needed:)
So I am @JustUSQ8
https://twitter.com/JustUSQ8
What will the "Followers" be called???

"To the Think Tank!!!"

Tips to follow as I learn a lil bit!

So far...
BE SAFE...
No Locations.
No "Hey I am at Caribou Coffee in Fahaheel" tweets...
Do NOT open up any links from people you do not know
Eat Cheesecake for happiness

How do you find "Followers"???
First thing that I did was went to Expats profile...
I looked at who she was following and then picked some of her people.
Then I clicked on a couple of their people... ETC
I also picked the people that I liked!
More to follow...

I will set a goal to "Follow" 100 people every week. Obtainable? I think YES
Wil I be able to TWEET 100 times a week? Maybe...
