House on Happy Rock

Wednesday, May 16, 2007


Well, moving weekend came and went and we are slowly but surely settling in to our new house (pictures to come soon).

Thursday night, my brother came over to help move the couch and love seat into the new house so that the movers would have room to move the washer, dryer and TV to the new house on Friday morning. David and I took Friday off to get a jump start on the big move on Saturday. I spent most of the day carrying over small boxes and the dishes from the kitchen. I also manged to get the bedroom painted before any of the furniture was moved in. The bedroom went from green to Gothic Amethyst. I love the color, and can't wait to get all unpacked and settled.

Saturday was a blur! My mom was over bright and early to help start moving. Soon, there were parents, step-parent and siblings hauling boxes and furniture. We honestly couldn't have done it without them! As a "thank you", we are taking everyone out to the Wyoming Rib and Chop House for dinner.

Sunday I spent all day cleaning the old house and unpacking. We were totally exhausted, and I even managed a quick cat nap with the cat. She's adjusting nicely to the new house.

Monday morning, my new kitchen appliances were delivered. I got a GE Adora refrigerator and gas stove.

My dad just installed the stove last night, so I'll be cooking for the first time in weeks. I am so sick of eating out!
Now, I just need to plan a meal!

This weekend, I want to get the majority of the house in order, finish painting the kitchen and bathroom and I need to get some furniture assembled.

Get out of my house!

Well, we were supposed to start moving in today. Unfortunately, we probably won't be able to start moving in until next week. The people we bought our house from are building a new home. We closed a month ago, and the sellers agreed to pay us for the month they would be living in the house after closing of escrow while their house is being finished. And now their contractor is behind schedule.


So, they are really putting the heat on the contractor because he is costing them "rent" to us. He has also inconvenienced not only our two households but also our landlord who wants to get his property rented as soon as possible. Luckily, our landlord is very understanding and patient. So, I have essentially packed our entire house, with the exception of a few necessities. Our landlord wants to show the house sometime this week, amid the clutter of boxes.
