Quick Update on the New House

So we finalized our design this past Tuesday. Too late to change anything now! I was able to get some photos of our design choices during our final session. I have added these to our gallery with descriptions of what everthing is. You can view this photos here, they start at the bottom of the page.

Some Big Updates

It has been a few busy and exciting few weeks for us. First was the news of the birth of our new nephew. Jarret Michaiah Hughes join the family two weeks ago and is already better looking than his father.

Next, we have some big news for everyone that is a little closer to our home. It is the fact that we are working on getting our own home! We are close to finalizing the purchase of a new townhome in Sanford, not far from where we are at now. The house has yet to be built, which we hope will be started in a few weeks. We are finalizing our paperwork and our design choices this week. Since it is a brand new house, we were able to make all of the design choices ourselves.

We were able to get a lot of upgrades that we wanted, like a gourmet kitchen, luxury master bath, and a screened in back patio. We went basic on a few other areas and we already have ideas on how to upgrade the house. I call it our "new fixer upper"! Here are a couple quick photos:

I have also been working on getting my new Gallery up and running. Right now it is running fine, but I have a few more tweaks to make with it. I have already uploaded a few albums, including our Disneyland 2008 Vacation, Hughes Easter 2008, more photos of Jarrett, and tour of our new home!

There is another new item that I have added to my blog. On the left column of the page, you should see a new heading that says Huginn Subscription - By Email. Just enter your email address, follow a few quick steps, and you will be registered to receive notifications when we update our blog. This way, you can hear the lastest news and never miss anything!

Quick Updates

Sorry for the delay in posting an update, but things have been crazy. We have been working on a few private matters, that I hope to be able to announced in a few days! VERY EXCITING!

But I have made some progress on a few things! I have finally organized the 350+ photos from Disneyland and I hope to start some posts about that this weekend. I have also gotten Gallery 2 setup on my domain, so the photos will be uploaded there.

I also will be uploading some family photos that were taken two weeks ago.

The address of the gallery right now is: The Gallery 2 software is really cool! It offers you the ability to order prints of any of the pictures, right from the site. There are several other cool things that it can do, I just need to finish tweaking the configuration. It's new software to me, so I have a lot to learn....

There is some bad news. Some of you may remember that I had a sinus infection during our Disneyland trip. When, two weeks ago (today actually) I had tonsillities (infection of the tonsils). Well, I finish my round of prescribed antibiots on Monday and the tonsillities returned on Thursday. I hope I can just get a refill on the prescription and not have to be seen again, but I won't know until later today.

I told mrsguru the other day... when I was young, I never got sick. Since I turned 31, I'm sick all the time. I used to have the immunity system of a strong horse. Now, it's more like My Little Pony...

Well, time to call the doctor and see what he says... I will post an update later...
