Moving Weekend + Mishaps
Hello and happy Monday!
This weekend was moving weekend and a blur of boxes and packing paper. I am really liking our new place here in the city, but I am not a fan of unpacking. Thanks to Neil’s nonstop motion we have all of our boxes unpacked minus my 6 boxes of books that we need a home for. While I cursed him for pushing me to keep working (I would have preferred to take leisurely siestas), I am glad that we worked so efficiently to get everything done.
Friday onwards was a blur to me, so who knows what days these pictures were taken:
I was reunited with my long lost wreath that I thought for sure would be forgotten when the packers came. I went on a serious wreath finding mission last year and it took me multiple attempts to find one I liked (liked = covered in gold and glitter).
Our movers came on Friday and had everything into our place by 330 pm (not a mishap). Our cable/internet man even came early only to tell us that there was no wiring to the jack on the wall. He wasn’t able to do anything and I have calls out for someone to remedy this situation as soon as possible. It was probably for the best because then we were able to get everything unpacked without distractions. #firstworldproblems
The shelves in our bedroom closet are questionably sturdy, so we hung a majority of our clothes in the hall closets which appeared to be more reliable. Wrong.
So these are off the wall and a lot of our clothes are in a neat pile behind the couch. All in all it wasn’t a terrible issue, just annoying and a buzzkill to the excitement of moving into our home.
Saturday we grabbed breakfast and then drove about 45 min west to go to IKEA. I have a love hate relationship with IKEA. I love all the inspiration, but absolutely hate purchasing furniture, loading it into the car, and unloading it at home.
I want this:
We bought some track lighting that we are holding for when we can get a contractor in to hook it up, 2 desks, a kitchen shelving unit, and a shower curtain. There’s still stuff scattered around, so once the desks are more functional I will introduce you to our office space.
Saturday night I was in no mood to build desks, so I worked on unpacking the kitchen. I wasn’t able to finish until Sunday, but most everything is in its rightful place. I had about 3 full boxes of food, so finding space for that was a good practice in Tetris.
I have a lot of candles.
Maybe it wouldn’t take so long if I didn’t have to battle my OCD organizational needs.
Sunday we built desks all day and grabbed dinner at Doc B’s where I satisfied my meat craving with a filet mignon sandwich.
Now it is Monday and there are many calls to be made! I have had a cough since Friday which I attributed to breathing in an entire wall’s worth of drywall but I still have it and feel a little run down today so I am going to drink copious smoothies and heal myself so I don’t get sick.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
