Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are finally all moved into our house, and now all we have to do is unpack and organize! We have been doing a few boxes a night before falling down. I'll be happy when Thanksgiving is over and we can really get the place set up! I'll post pictures once things are put away - it's just too cluttered right now! I'm just happy to be able to keep up with the laundry and the dishes!

Boy, that weekend went fast!

Only one trip to the house yesterday and one trip to Home Depot. The rest of the day was spent packing. I am going to be so happy when this is over! I am going to the house on my way home tonight to drop off more boxes, then, back to the apartment to do more packing. It's easy to become overstressed with everything that needs to be done, but the end result will be a house that we will love to come home to!

I have been taking pictures, but the one picture I have been wanting to take has eluded me. At the closing the sellers realtor said he was going to come by with a "SOLD" sign so we could pose for goofy pictures, but it has not shown up yet. We will end up making our own. Wish I could stitch it!

Busy, busy

We made 3 trips to the storage unit today! I'm amazed at the progress we are making! It's hard work, lots of driving, but it's worth it. We put most of the stuff in the living room, and after our last trip to the storage unit, we moved everything to the proper room. Funny, it looked like a lot of stuff but when once it was put away, we began to realize just how big this house is.

More moving tomorrow and during the week, and then the big push on Saturday. Good thing we are going to have help! I hate driving those big u-hauls!

Weekend Plans

I'll be spending my weekend cleaning and moving stuff from our storage unit to the house. I think once we have all our belongings there and in some sort or order, it will really start to feel like home. Right now, it's very echo-y and kind of dark. We will buy some lights this weekend to brighten it up. I'm so looking forward to spending more time there! We have explored the neighborhood a little - walking to the CVS and the pizza place and the coffee shop, but nothing further than a half a mile form the house. Maybe we will take a break sometine during the weekend to go exploring, check out some yard sales. I don't think I'll be able to pick up my stitching again (without feeling guilty) until after Thanksgiving. That's okay, though. I have found quite a few unfinished projects (alas, the dreaded backstitching) that I really need to complete. That would be a good project for 2010!

It has been MONTHS since I have posted! I really have no excuse, except for the fact that I have been in a whirlwind of activity which has ultimately resulted in the purchase of our first home. No, it did not take 10 months, but it is what it is. We are thrilled, terrified and looking forward to spending our first holidays there. I will take LOTS of pictures, because we have LOTS of work to do!

The best part? I have TONS of wallspace to fill with stitching! Here is my current dilemma - unpack or stitch?
