The House

Having a new house is really cutting in to my personal time. Oh wait, I guess that is my personal time. I've been busy everyday unpacking boxes and finding space for things. I am behind the game because we were all sick when the movers came. Things that normally would have been done immediately are taking time because I slept on a mattress on the floor while the movers brought in all of our boxes. They must have reading issues as well. Because I was asleep I suppose they didn't mind putting boxes marked "Kitchen" in the garage and "garage" items in the dining room. The upside is my kitchen/family room is mostly put together, outside of hanging anything on the walls. I can sit here and feel like I have moved in - but outside of this little space the evidence is clear I still have work to do. Oh and did I mention they didn't bring all of our stuff? We've had things in storage here for 4 years - they didn't bring it so this Wednesday is moving day again. Hopefully this time I won't sleep through it.

Thursday Thirteen #23 We Are Homeowners!

#23 Thirteen Pictures of the New House

We closed on our house today. After going to the house one last time for a quick walk through we drove almost an HOUR to the other side of town to then sit and sign paper after paper. With keys in hand we drove back to our new house!!

I know Amazed has been waiting to give me advice on all things HOME. What advice do you have? What horror stories? What would you do again and what would you not do? Do you line drawers? Do you hang pictures right away?

Here are Thirteen pictures of the new house:
oops 14.
