Well I'm back online. Actually we were back online on Saturday night - but GAH!! exhaustion ya know???
The move couldn't have gone better - the alarm system was moved without a hitch... the internet went as smoothly. Saturday morning both my girls showed up with husbands and kids (kids are teenagers) and my lord did they all work!!!
The girls and I came to the house while the movers loaded the big stuff and the men folk loaded all the boxes. It was a whirl wind...... at one point eldest daughter sent me to the living room and told me to sit! I was so close to tears all day....... stress is a wonderful thing.
You wouldn't believe it - they started loading the trucks at 9:30 and by 2pm we were eating lunch!!! My girls worked hard to empty boxes - especially the kitchen and get it pulled together. Eldest daughter brought us a cake to celebrate.............
Both Sir Steve and I were overwhelmed with their help / love. Honestly this has to be the best move ever!
Sunday was spent opening boxes and sorting things out..... we got our room almost 75% pulled together... and the kitchen is about 90% together... the den is coming along... BUT - we spent most of the day working on the lil one's room.... so it would be ready for her to unpack when she got home mid afternoon. She has been talking about wanting a 't'ween bedroom' ever since we knew we were moving........ it was her one big wish!
We all worked together emptying her boxes and hanging pictures and sorting out books and toys..... and her room is complete!!
Here's the before shot of her room
And here it is now..........
She announced she got her wish - a t'ween bedroom! and SHE LOVED IT !!!
Sir Steve decided to take today off so we can get more of the house finished.... stay tuned for more "home corners".
