Vintage Harmon from our first move with him...
I don't think I've got words to describe this experience. It was 2 ginormus UHauls to just move everything. We have thrown out enough stuff to fill up one our our construction industrial trash bins. We have donated every bit of baby stuff and anything else we did not need. I've had to run non-stop to stores for curtain rods, curtains, nails, trash bags, etc. Through all of this we had Easter... sort of... I was peeling potatoes for dinner in a empty pizza box that was lying on the floor and we had no hot pads or aprons (we left them at the old house).
Don't worry though, we didn't lose a single critter!!!! That is b/c my mother kindly took them until Saturday night (and Chris' Mom saved our bacon by taking them for today). So I guess all is well that ends well. Honestly I whine but I'm loving my new home and once we are settled it will be so nice :) We had a friend help us set up so much and today Miriam our nanny just kicked organizing booty and so now it looks more like a house.
The hardest part from here on out really is finding some killer chairs for bar top and makeup desk... oh and finishing the house! Seriously, this morning I was in my night clothing when I have a tile guy show up randomly right at 7 am. From that point on we have had trim carpenters, electricians, more trim carpenters, internet man, etc. trounce through the place. We still have more paint, more tile work, more trim work, etc. to get done. At least I know most of them well but I will be glad when they are gone. It might be a few weeks though. Especially b/c I accidentally designed my backsplash to look like a stainless steel Zebra :(
There are a lot of "little fixes" like that every where... oh well at least we are in! I'll share some pictures later on :) I have no idea where my camera cord is!
