Moving In... and It's a Mess!


Well, we aren't totally moved in. Our stuff is now split between two houses, but we are making a lot of progress and all the BIG stuff is moved....so that's something.

I've been digging holes for landscape like a madwoman. I'm sure I've dug over 100 holes in 100+ degree heat. The plants are pretty stressed and we're using a lot of water to keep them alive.

There are tons of little things still to do inside like, install doorknobs and doorstops, still waiting on a few kitchen cupboard doors to come back from the shop, finish tiling kitchen walls, get closets fitted with shelves and hanging bars, make a bookshelf.....and a bunch of other stuff that makes a house a home. It's kinda like we're "just visiting" because our clothes are in stacks on the floors of the closets and nothing really has a place yet, but it's SOMETHING!! And I'll take it any-day compared to driving back and forth, between houses, multiple times a day.

 bringing the big stuff over in the U-Haul and putting the bed back together




 We just had the U-Haul for two days, so everything just got plopped in the great room.






Below is a picture I took with my phone of our old house after moving the furniture out. It makes me sort of sad...

 After many, many tries at mirrors for the boys' bathroom I finally decided on the plain 4 foot long medicine cabinet. I loved the look of the two different mirrors (below left). In the end, storage was more important than style in this bathroom without cabinets.
