The W Family Chronicles

Utterly exhausted and Thomased out

Posted on: June 12, 2007

We took J to ride Thomas the Tank Engine at Tweetsie Railroad this weekend. It was exhausting! We did some furniture shopping both on the way there and the way back. Didn’t buy anything but I’ve picked out some things. I’ve picked out bedroom furniture (the Thomasville Bridges 2.0 collection) but I need to find a local dealer of Wesley Allen iron beds to pick out a headboard. I need to go to the Thomasville outlet in Thomasville and see what they have from this collection and figure out how much we can save.

And if you need upholstered furniture, the Broyhill outlet, just north of Hickory, has some great deals. We didn’t pick anything out, but it worked out to about $1500 to get a sleeper sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman. And that included shipping! (We’re close, though…shipping would be higher to other places.) We’ll be going back there occasionally to see if they have anything new that we really like. We need so much — bedroom furniture, living room upholstered furniture, a table for our foyer, a china cabinet or sideboard for the dining room, and possibly a chair and a half or futon for the kids’ play area. We’ve gotten rid of a lot of the old stuff we had and now need to replace it.

As for Thomas, J really enjoyed himself. I have pictures, but no editing software on this computer so who knows when I’ll share them…hopefully I can find my copy of Photoshop and install it soon. We met up with some college friends there and finally met their little boy (who is 2 years old…it’s been a while!) and all of the kids had a blast.

But I am so glad to be home…now I need to start working on getting the house in shape for all of our company coming in for C’s birthday!  I still haven’t made much in the way of plans so I need to get crackin’!

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
