Man it has been a long, long, looooooonnnnnggggg time since I’ve stopped in to chat. Life has been so crazy the last month and a half and things are finally starting to settle down a bit! As some of you may know/remember from my previous posts, we had been packing up like crazy at our place. This was one of the last scenes I showed at our apartment…
Meanwhile, while we were packing our place up, we were moving Scott’s mom. Yep, that’s right, two moves in a matter of a month! Scott and I pretty much did all of the moving all on our own for us AND his mom. We had help one day with the big furniture items since I’m not that strong, but we did the rest on our own. That consisted of moving Scott’s mom’s things out of the storage unit (the massive storage unit) that was stuffed FULL of her things, as well as some of ours, too. It worked out that we both got places in the same town, just a few minutes away from one another. So making trips out to her place also allowed us to swing by our place, too. We took some days off of work to get the last of our things out of our apartment, cleaning the place entirely (including wet-vac’ing the floor) and settling ourselves into the new place.
It’s been an exhausting month and a half, but the worst of it is over. We have the main things put in place at our new townhouse, which we just love. It’s farther from work for both of us, sadly, but it has so much more space! It has three “bedrooms”, (one is our bedroom, one is an office, and the third will be a spare bedroom with my old bed and furniture-set), a HUGE BRIGHT kitchen (note my excitement, after our last small cramped dark kitchen) a full basement and two car garage. We love it. Here are a few pictures that have been taken…
So weird seeing this place empty! I’m going to miss it a bit. This was the first place Scott and I shared together.
A sneak peak of the initial chaos. Oy, am I glad that we have made a LOT of progress since these pictures. Phew.
Our first morning after our first night in our new place. Sunshine, warm weather, coffee, all enjoyed on our new deck. Absolutely perfect morning!
The kitties took a little time to get used to their new surroundings…but now they seem back to their normal, cute, silly selves. Plus, they have so much more room now, too, to explore. An upstairs AND main level to explore (although the basement is off-limits) They are loving it!
Some beautiful views from our new place. I just love it. I’m really excited about this place! 😀
That’s all I’ve got for now, just wanted to stop in and say hi and let you know that I’m still here! I’ll try and get back into a somewhat normal routine of blogging again soon!
