Our move went well. Like really well. We had a great turn out from the men at church and Easy even hired a couple guys in case we needed them. A friend had offered to watch the girls and in a matter of a couple of hours we went from one house, to one truck, to another house.

The afternoon of the move I focused all my efforts on getting the kitchen organized. As I sat and stared at all those boxes I wanted so bad for my mom to be there to just do it all for me. Even though I have moved way more than she has I still believe she has a great gift for putting together a kitchen.

Everyday since then it's just been more and more of the same. Unpacking and getting acquainted with the house.

Cut open box
Unwrap treasures
Find a place for them

Etc.


Luckily my little ones have been pretty patient - and they don't mind playing with packing paper.


Now we are working on getting our back fence done (our poor dog is going crazy) and I'm trying to temper my impulse to paint rooms, build garden beds and a pergola, tear down lighting (those ones in the kitchen), buy new appliances, and get rugs all within the next week.
