So we've been living with my parents for almost a month.
Our stuff is in the cars, the garage, the upstairs bedroom, storage and at the new house.
My library books somehow made their way to the depths of storage, where they sit, unread, quietly accumulating library fines.
I've realized that as long as I have pants and work shirts, I really only need one or two other outfits.
There might be something wrong with that.
The house has been painted 2 lovely shades of grey as a neutral start so that I can add color as I go.
One of them looks completely baby blue .
It's really hard to pick a color for the whole house.
Today B and I spent the day moving things over and into the new house.
We're getting the floors done in a about 2 weeks so we'll try not to put too many things down stairs.
I'm really looking forward to having all my belongs in one place... in the same city... in the same house!
Meanwhile, at work we're in the home stretch to the end of summer.
After Labor Day I'd like to take a nice long nap.
Oh wait, I can't because we'll be moving... with a toddler who has a knack for climbing things and finding trouble.
You know what else I'm looking forward to at the house?
Having my computer with constant internet connection.
At my parents house the computer is in Peanut's room
and for some reason I can't connect to their wifi.
So for now I'm just doing a lot of mental "planning".
I have ideas for everything.
Changes to the house, changes to the blog, changes to the restaurants,
schedules, lists, projects.
Does anyone realize how close the holidays are?
I mean, we'll blink and Christmas will be here.
How am I going to get everything done before Christmas?!
In my mind it goes something like this:
move some more stuff
get the floors done
actually move in
never sleep again (because Peanut's sleeping routines do not take well to change)
schedule blog and article posting
try to keep house clean
(this may be unrealistic as I couldn't manage to keep an apartment half this size clean)
more article deadlines
restaurant build out
open nighttime restaurant concept
Sounds about right.
Oh wait, I think "Work out" is in there on one of those days.
Does your schedule look something like this or do you need to add in things like football practice, piano lessons, plant fall harvest and drink martinis?
And yes, I know these pictures have absolutely nothing to do with the post :)
