Insanity reached peak levels this week with our massive move. I didn't even have the presence of mind to take pictures of the TWO moving trucks (and two PODS) because my sole job was to direct traffic and keep children constructively occupied while packing frantically (is that a sole job? Hmmm). Maybe it's good not to remember that.
We are exhausted, but we are in. We finally have internet, so I'm sensing things will be getting back to normal quite soon! Granted, my definition of "normal" may not be what yours is.
Here's my favorite place of our new house: a huge linen closet, which kept the little girls happy for most of the moving day (which is such an oxymoron. As if you can move in a day. Ha ha.)The paint and carpet were done, but we had major problems getting phone and internet service (and we are only 15 miles from a large city - what's up with that?).
To make things even more fun, we had delays. You know, cat pooping on the bedspread, can't find the phone cord, kitchen sink's backed up, what do you know, termites ate the closet floor. Those sorts of delays.
Then there were remodeling issues, which were supposed to be finished (I'm a pitiful optimist!) before we moved in. The biggest delay was the windows. They were over a week late, and then only two of the four I ordered arrived. Apparently the manufacturer had the other two windows made at a different factory. In Pennsylvania. I will never understand these people. All four are exactly alike. Just how is that more efficient?
But the kids' bedroom windows are in, so I'm thankful for that. Here's Neal's-13
And now (still waiting on sills):
I'll have more pics of this week, which coincided with the second-to-last week of school and every bit of the craziness that entails, plus 30 miles. And some before and
But first, more boxes.
Just do the next thing, right?
