I’m exhausted and sore! The hubs and I have continued our tradition of not living on the first floor. (I don’t think we ever have!) About 900 trips up and down the stairs later, and we finally had our stuff in our new space. We are permanently in the owe column with my sister and brother-in-law as they were the other work-horses this weekend. Another thing we had on our side was the weather. It was absolutely gorgeous – 70 & sunny. I even wore shorts!
It was like getting married all over again as we rediscovered our housewares — old and new. (Our things have been in storage for over a year.) And were were quite fortunate that the previous tenant left behind a few things — particularly an ikea cabinet that we promptly moved into the kitchen because we had more kitchen boxes than any other room and we’ve had to downsize to a little kitchenette! My sister also took it as a good omen that 8 wine glasses were left behind – I tend to agree. We put them to good use right away.
Now I just have to keep reminding myself that “Rome was not built in a day.” I’m anxious to have it completely settled, but it’ll take a little time yet – and I really do enjoy the process.
