Unfortunately, we do not have internet or cable yet at the house and I am a freak that doesn't have a smart phone, so I have not been able to update the blog, research appliances, figure out where I am, check the weather, etc. The movers delivered all our junk last Monday and our house looks like a box factory and an episode of hoarders collided.
We got a big dose of reality that we moved into a MUCH smaller house with a lot less storage. All the built ins in our former home (china cabinets, living room and basement bookcases, master closet dresser, the wall unit we installed, mirrored closet in guest room, shelves in Ashford's room) are no more...and all the stuff that was in them is now homeless. We also have this impressive pile of rugs (8 of them!) in our master waiting for me to decide where to put them...and I also have a few less rooms to put them in.
Our yard is a real mess. The storm that ruined the roof last August also destroyed every tree on our property, and a lot of the lawn....so we have made a couple trips to Home Depot for plants, grass seed, compost, soil. We hadn't done many projects in the old house recently, so it was sort of weird to be back at one of our "minimum $100" stores. The other one being Target, obviously.
PS - it has not escaped my attention that every photo in this post so far has Ashford in it. That is kind of embarrassing. So, just wanted to give you all an update and let you know there are many projects coming up. Like the inside of our main bathroom vanity. What in the?!
