Finally we're all moved in. The move went great, we have sore backs and are still tripping over boxes but we could have worse problems. The house is still just as perfect for us as we first thought, and already it's starting to feel like home. J is a rock star when it comes to moving. He hasn't skipped a beat as far as his schedule, sleeping all night, etc. The first day at the house he was running around saying "new house, new house" and "helping" me unpack boxes, and that night he went to bed without a fight and slept for 12 hours. He LOVES having a backyard, which makes the whole thing worth it for me. It needs some landscaping but J doesn't seem to mind the dirt and rocks; we pretty much have to drag him back inside at the end of the day.
Just a side note on how much subliminal mind control my husband has over me sometimes: So like most new homeowners we have a laundry list of stuff we need for the new house, some minor (new garbage can, a rake, light bulbs, etc) and some major (washer/dryer, new mattress, window coverings, etc.) We set out yesterday morning with every intention of buying the stuff that we NEED for the house. Soooo, what do you think we came home with? Washer and dryer? Nope. New flat-screen TV? Yep. In TH's defense the TV was in the budget and was promised many months ago. It's just funny how that became a "necessity" all of a sudden.
p.s. Internet back up and running on Friday, lots of pics to come (of the house and of J over the past few weeks)....
Practice makes perfect
