Friday just happened to be the coldest day of the year so far! I woke up early and took the kiddos to mom and dad’s house for the day. On the way home I stopped to get coffee and donuts for the movers.
The guys arrived at 9:00 and got to work. By noon they were headed to the storage unit, and then to the house. I had pizza waiting for lunch and then the unpacking began. Once the furniture was off, the boxes went really quickly. Most of the boxes ended up in the dining room, which was fine.
By 4:00, the house was full of our stuff and we began to unpack. I made the bed first thing, I didn’t want to leave that till later. I knew we would be tired and making a bed was the last thing I would want to do. Then I started on the kitchen. It took the rest of Friday and most of Saturday for me to get it in order. Mom and dad were nice and brought us dinner Friday night. They also brought the kiddos back. Hal had a little accident in her carrier but thankfully it didn’t get on her so she was allowed in the house. 😉
After dinner, Matt and I headed upstairs. First order of business was soaking in my new tub! Matt hopped in the shower. Tub > Shower!
Julio was a crazy pants that night and no one got a whole lot of sleep. We woke up early and waited for the TWC and Direct TV guys. Direct TV was early but the poor guy had a time. He spent the entire day at our house. I felt bad I didn’t have any food to offer him. He went to dig the hole for the dish and hit clay. We think the ground was a little frozen because the clay was crazy hard. Then he realized the hole was too close to the house and the dish wouldn’t turn so he had to move it. Then something else wouldn’t work. It was just one thing after another. The guy was really nice and kept a good attitude.
Since we ended up spending the day at the new house, we had to run to the Townhouse on Sunday to get the rest of the odds and ends and clean. 7 hours, and 2 trips later we were done! I hadn’t expected it to take us quite as long as it did. We ended up borrowing my dad’s jeep and I’m glad we did. It saved us a third trip.
After the crazy weekend I think Matt and I were both ready to get back to work yesterday. Now we are both working from home since another round of snow decided to hit this morning. They said it would be a snowy winter but this is getting a little ridiculous! And more is on the way. I will probably try to walk around the ‘hood in a little while and take some pics. My camera is at mom and dad’s house so I’ll have to use the little point and shoot. Look for snow pics tomorrow.
