it is still very much a work-in-progress, but at least now you can see more than just stacks of boxes ..
I call this [J]’s happy place, but I sure tried.
we’re still working on where to hang the items in our bedroom. and [J] made the dresser on the right for us ..we’re just waiting on warmer weather, so we can paint it outside.
our guest room is our “war zone” currently. we refuse to open the door. so that’ll have to wait.
I want to scream it from the rooftops ..
I AM BACK!!!!
we FINALLY got internet at our new place last night at 8PM. ugh.
the past week has been filled with take-out meals [because we’d have food at one apartment & kitchen supplies at the other], a lot of
moving weight lifting, an excessive amount of cleaning, a nightly alcoholic beverage or two, a dance party based around our cable television being set up, and anxiously awaiting the arrival of our internet modem.
we are happily settled into our new place.
most importantly, I missed all of you + my blog. and I solemnly promise never to disappear for that length of time again. at least not without proper advance notice.
below are the “glamorous moments of moving”.
[otherwise known as: the moments I wasn’t carrying something down three flights of stairs & could snap a photo].
including: my dad & [J] taking a beer + college basketball break, my phillip lim x target tote doubling as a means for carrying lamps, [J] & I completely overjoyed
and blurry that our moving truck was finally filled, 25oz of celebratory beer, and a beautiful sunset at our new place.
you can now expect me fully back in action.
and so excited to be back .. :)
whether I like it or not, it’s moving week.
I can’t wait to be in a much more spacious apartment. if only there was a magic word & our belongings would be transported. wishful thinking. [J] & I have a lot of
manual labor work ahead of us.
on the bright side, we’re only moving 5 miles. in comparison to our last two moves, from illinois to iowa [310 miles] and new jersey to illinois [826 miles].
last night I came home to bare walls. which I’m convinced is [J]’s way of telling me it’s time to get packing.
moving week attire: tee shirts, jeans, tennis shoes .. & power tools. watch out world.
help wanted. payment: beer + wine!
