Moving In

Roll out the red carpet, we had a very nice moving day IN THE RAIN. Three guys, 8 and 1/4 hours, and I think I took about 3 pictures of the whole event. Below are some photos of our first night in NEW HOUSE. Empty rooms, a few boxes, and friends came over with Champagne!



I tried to be sociable, but the refrigerator needed a thorough scrubbing.

I was surprised how disoriented the process of moving can be. We only moved 10 minutes away, but the process of settling in could take months. Just NOT KNOWING simple things like WHERE ARE THE FINGERNAIL CLIPPERS? kind of drove me crazy for a few weeks. 

A month later we are feeling more at home. The kids are sleeping well, I have taken over the kitchen, and we find new things to love here every day. Yesterday Jude had a playdate, and the kids spent an hour playing behind our house while I raked leaves. 

Expect more posts in the future about my growing love for NEW HOUSE. Soon we will have OLD HOUSE on the market. The end of one era is the beginning of another.

Moving Out

A month ago we moved out of our OLD HOUSE and into our NEW HOUSE. The kids packed up their bags for the weekend at Grandma's, and we ran around getting everything together.


They both look a little nervous to me here.

It is amazing how much STUFF fits into your life over the course of our 9 years on Fairview Boulevard. I spent three months packing, and we were still slammed on moving day.

Be ye warned, those with a big basement! Sometimes there is such a thing as TOO MUCH STORAGE.


We got the keys just one night before our moving date, and called on a few friends to lend a hand.

This is one last photo of our favorite game in OLD HOUSE. On your mark, get set, GO!
