On the eve of moving day, we were still not packed. Only about 30% I’d say.
Insert PANIC here.
we worked and worked and worked, and I panicked some more.
At 10:00 PM, this is what our kitchen looked like (don’t even get me started on the rest of the house)
it wasn’t pretty.
Things ALWAYS take way longer than i think they will. I learned the hard way here!
By 3:00 AM, this is what it looked like:
That’s when we gave up and went to bed. We got up again at 5:30 AM. we packed, I went and put a final coat on the cabinet doors, and we picked up the moving truck.
Thank Heavens for our brothers, is all I can say!
(I didn’t take too many photos of the moving process, I was a bit busy, but here are a couple:
this is what the strappin’ lads did.
Meanwhile, I stayed at the new house getting ready – and doing more painting.
My Mama helped me line the kitchen shelves
And our dads got to work installing our Fridge, Cooktop and Dishwasher
i think it’s cute how they are so good at working together. And I’m very grateful!
Nick and his brother, Eric putting together our closet organizer. Aren’t the floors and walls SO PRETTY???? More on that later.
We put all our boxes downstairs, since there was still construction upstairs. All the furniture congregated in the living room upstairs awaiting thier final homes.
It was a mess. Still is, actually.
Yoshi was pretty excited about the new carpet, and he’s settled in great. He loves that the window is just his height. Window watching is one of his favorite hobbies.
By the end of the day, we were so beat. 2.5 hours sleep, on top of five previous days that were 20+ hours each. We set up our bed, ran to the inlaw’s to shower, and went nighty night!
PS, don’t you LOVE the walls?! I sure do. In fact, I can’t get enough! It will look SO good when the wainscotting is finished, and when its totally decorated 🙂 And, our bed is pretty 🙂
It was bittersweet leaving our old place. Good, but sad at the same time. We had so many good times there- It’s the house we had when we got married 🙂
Bye Bye house
I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard to get a bathroom so spotless in my whole life. You’re welcome, Randy. 🙂
PS, this place is now for sale, It’s awesome, and I happen to know, the last people who lived in it were totally cool, and left it really clean!
