By now, I consider ourselves expert movers. You people in the ongoing training careers know what I'm talking about:) You clean out, pack early, and label, label, label. Moving day, you unpack and get to it until your boxes are empty.
The move went smooth thanks to a lot of extra hands. They hauled our boxes, set up beds, put away food in my pantry, kids were entertained, and in no time, we were resuming life as normal by the next day. I find it fascinating how quick and efficient the turnover can be. I've been shopping like a mad woman for essentials for the extra bathrooms and bedrooms. Eeegad, it can add up, but I keep having self talks and deep breath moments to carry me through. And, I hate shopping. I've decided that it is exhausting and I'm not sure this is the best rug out there. I have better luck shopping when it's not forced. I will post pictures soon with remodel plans. Mat says at least 2yrs and I am quickly placing myself in a seat belt until then. I'm such a product person and I already know mostly my vision of where I want the house to go that I'd like to do this remodel, eh, tomorrow. Patience. Patience. Patience. I'm going to need strength.
