Well, we got all moved! We're now discovering the quirks of the new apartment (like "hot" water that's really only lukewarm) and trying to learn our neighborhood. We think we like this apartment better... the family's decorating tastes are more akin to my own so it feels more like home...more like we're just living in a furnished apartment and not in someone else's home.
We moved on Friday and got a bit unpacked. We got a bit more unpacked yesterday, but Saturdays are always rough because of church in the evening, so we didn't get that much done. Today while Shannon was gone I determined to get just one room clean and fully unpacked. I picked the living room/office/entryway. I succeeded:
Our new living room. I even cleaned the windows and moved the couches and vacuumed underneath them!
The only thing that's ours in the blanket...I bought it ten years ago in China and have been toting it around the world with me ever since. It's toasty warm!
Our "entertainment center." All of Lane's books are on the bottom and on top is my favorite wedding photo and a Yankee candle that Shannon got me for my birthday.
I love this hutch. It's old and rinky-dink, but it's got character. And it's full of things that are actually ours!
The dining area/office area. I'm so excited that Shannon has a desk now!
A clean entryway/hallway!
Up next: the kitchen.
The food we brought, which is waiting on (clean) cabinet space.
Oh, at the mess and disorganization. It's driving me crazy.
Messy, messy, messy. Ick.
