I think.

Move successful. Internet acquired yesterday. House looking much better even after just one week. (Hubby only working half days for the win.) Body adjusting to torture of moving and housework. Got kitty (gorgeous 2 month old short hair, tortoiseshell). Got from shelter. Name that came with her: Raynie. Changed it to Rayna.

Now feeling miserable. Think I got food poisoning. Hope to get back to regular blogging next week. Got to run. :-S

Two days until the move! Our phone/internet provider, and our heating/gas company, both don’t end services on the weekend. So, as this is a long weekend with the holiday, our options were to end services on Friday or Tuesday. We didn’t want to get billed for three days we won’t be here, so they’re getting shut off tomorrow morning. At least we already bought our prepaid cell phone. This is my last day of internet for a while. We’re going to switch to Comcast, so hopefully we can get that set up in the next couple weeks (sooner rather than later).


On a good note, at least we will have electricity. They do weekends. Today is big laundry and dishes day, as we won’t have any hot water tomorrow. Not a bad thing, as the day will be busy packing. My husband has already asked for Friday off so we can get everything done with less rushed stress.


We’ll have the weekend to settle into our house. It looks so much better than when we bought it. Fresh paint in most rooms. New carpet in the den. A few new doors. So exciting! Looking forward to living there, not just working there.


I will miss checking in on my blogging friends. I will blog again when I’m connected. Love you all!

Quick Update

In an hour, B and I are leaving for the house with my in-laws. Going to do some painting, and a guy is coming to measure for carpet. We’ve done some fixes, gotten the vents cleaned (much needed!), put in a couple new doors, and painted a formerly Disney-princess-pink-with-purple-trim room. Not much left to do, thank goodness. We’re going to paint the family room, front room, and one of the bathrooms. Other rooms aren’t top priority, and will only be repainted if we have leftover paint. Saturday I was painting doors outside, and got sunburned. Been a while. Not fun. Bringing sunscreen from now on. We’re getting new carpet in the family room (previous owners had three dogs in there), and getting the rest cleaned. Really looking forward to all this pre-work being done, and being able to actually live there!


B had his first “monster-under-the-bed” experience. Now added to the bedtime routine are checking under the bed, telling him everything is safe, and leaving the door open.


Moving date is May 23. Not much longer! Still have packing to do…


Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day to any mothers who read this! My husband bought me a radio/CD player, which I have been wanting. :-)
