Well We’re In!

So Tim and I decided to move yesterday. We were going to move today but it was suppose to snow (and it did). So we basically have 90% of what was in the parsonage in our new place but we still have to get all the stuff from the garage over here. I painted the family room but haven’t finished the kitchen (they flow into each toher). I had a hard time sleeping last night. We went to bed at 10:30 and I fell asleep way after 2:30. It could be because Tim was sick and snoring but I have gotten insomnia everytime I have moved in the last 5 years. It is really annoying and lasts around 2 months. So hopeully it was just the snoring.

Today I unpacked mostly everything except my studio. I am going to redo the shelving in the closet so that there are shelves on all three sides from ceiling to floor. The room is only a 10 x 9 so I need to make sure I have a lot of shelving with plenty of organization. I am so excited to get it all finished and actually have all my supplies out of hiding. Wahoo!

I hate moving but I love getting a new house and everything is organized and in its place for about 3 months. I will post some pics of the new digs once I get some decor going.

    Yippee! I can’t wait to see. How in the world did you get all that done? Unpacked even? You can move at lightening speed.

    Yay! How fun to be in your new (and adorable…at least from the outside) place by Christmas!

    Seriously, you saw the pics of our place on my blog….for $230K!! Are they hiring teachers in Indiana? JK. We could never leave our family, but the prices are tempting!! Your home is beautiful!!

    I love the “organized and everything’s in its place for about 3 months” comment. That is SO me. I am super-organized–containers, baskets, storage units, etc.–and it all looks way awesome for about 2 or 3 months. Then it’s a mess again ’til I get organized once more. One of my favorite places is The Container Store. I could spend hours in there…but if I did, my house wouldn’t get organized. HA!
