Well, we did it! We moved into our new house! What a week it's been...First of all, we've been without internet for a week, which has not been fun. I felt very out of touch, and not a bit relieved to be away from things. I do like a weekend here or there without the computer, but a whole week was not fun. I had put my Etsy shops on hold but of course got about ten orders, which I found out when I lurked in the Starbucks parking lot and used their wifi with the iPad. Cable I can do without, internet not so much...
But we're here! Every day I find something else about the house I love. We were able to move right in and unpack and are now trying to get settled. Things are not the exact way I want them but it's nice to know we can do things here little by little because we're here for the long haul, not just a year! And we don't have to ask a landlord if we can do anything, it's our house! So happy about that.
The other night I was doing dishes and looked out the window to see this:
What a cheerful little family picture this is! Notice the new grill? We have been to the store a million times picking up things we need. Grill, dehumidifier, lawnmower, shelves, broom, new mailbox. The list never seems to end. But it's great! Otis agrees.
