THE ENDLESS PROCESS OF UNPACKING
Turning Our House Into a Home
Last month, I mentioned that we recently moved into a new home. We’re deep in the midst of the unpacking process and starting the effort of turning our new house into a permanent home. While my excitement about settling in hasn’t cooled one bit, I’m beginning to feel like the universe is playing an April Fools’ joke on me when it comes to unpacking. I swear that all this stuff can’t be ours! If I never have to cut through a strip of packing tape again, you won’t hear me complaining. That said, adding some personal touches to the home has been really rewarding. We’ve been doing some painting, and while I’m no Picasso, I do enjoy putting a Thomason-family stamp on our house. When you move in, it can feel like you’re just renting or
Later in April, I’ll be floating down the middle fork of the Salmon River with my eldest brother, Mike. He goes every year, but I haven’t been able to join him because of life-changing events that have coincided with the trip. Last year, Max was born in April. The year before that, I was in the process of getting started at Eagle Dental Care. Three years ago, well, I have no excuse for that one. I just missed it. I’m so excited to be able to join him this year. The days will be spent floating and fishing, and the nights will see us sleeping on the shore. My brother is a certified mountain man, and he says it’s the closest you can come to an Alaskan adventure in the lower 48. In other news, I want to extend a giant thank-you to all of our patients for referring their friends and family. Our practice is growing at a pretty remarkable rate, and I’m humbled by the enthusiasm you have for our work. To thank our patients for their referrals, we will start running a monthly contest for those who refer new folks to us. The prizes are going to be awesome, so be sure to stay tuned for information about the contests. If you want to stay up to date on all things Eagle Dental Care, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook.

staying in a hotel room. Slowly but surely, though, we’re planting down our roots and furniture. Our next step is to start building some memories. I hope that when we look back on the early days in our new house, our kids remember the cardboard palace that was a jungle gym for them and a headache for their dad. Speaking of painting, I’m excited to dye some Easter eggs with the kids this year. We’ll get some respite from the moving madness when we head to Eastern Idaho for a big family celebration. We’ve done Easter at home for the past couple of years, so I’m looking forward to a bigger gathering this time around. Avy and Jett are the perfect ages to enjoy going on an Easter egg hunt, and, despite the fact they’re the kids of a dentist, they love candy as much as the next little one. Max isn’t old enough to hunt for anything outside arms’ reach, but I’m sure he’ll enjoy the trip all the same.
Oh, and if you need way too many boxes, I might know a guy looking to unload some. Just a thought.
