Movin' In


I got offered a job with a commuting distance of 1 hour and 15 minutes, so I will be moving in to our house much sooner than originally planned. It's a great job and I'll be working for the State! I had to come down for my drug test on Friday, so I stayed with Eric for the weekend.

We moved in all of the big stuff with the exception of the treadmill. Eric wants to save that for another day and put his brother to work so they can tag team it.

I cleaned up all the dusty furniture today, vacuumed, hung up a picture in the dining room, organized dishes in the kitchen some more, installed a couple switch plates, and I unpacked the rest of my boxes that are here. I still have my dolls in boxes and will wait to take them out until I have furniture in my sewing room to display them on.



I decided to take the mirror off the guest bedroom dresser and move the dresser into our room. We need a dresser and there's no sense in letting a perfectly good one sit empty in the next room. Our bedroom looks like a bedroom finally! We just need to get the bedframe from Eric's sister's house and our room will be temporarily set up with a queen bed. We have a king bedframe, but need to buy a new mattress and box spring for it yet.

 
 
 
We just had to fill up the fuel tank today. Up until this afternoon, the house was so cold! It warmed up very quickly though once Eric lit the furnace and heater.

I came into a nice soaked floor yesterday when I came to drop off boxes. The hook ups for the washing machine must have froze when our house wasn't heated and it was dripping a lot. I was so mad because our carpet remnants got soaked. I hope they dry out decently because I want to use them to make a cat tree. I spent time today cleaning that up. On the plus side, the washer and dryer work great!

I found my little chicken in storage and placed her in the kitchen. My dad and stepmom bought it for me as a teenager because I wanted a chicken for a pet...So I came home from school one day and here Dad had a chicken for me. I love it, and have been displaying it in my kitchens ever since!

 
Eric and I are so impressed with our living room. It's awesome to see the difference from when we were tearing out the walls. It was a ROYAL PAIN getting the couch in the door, and Eric's sister pinched her finger really good. We feel so bad that it happened. :(
