Settling In

DSC_5011On Monday morning, after what at times felt like forever, we closed on the new house. The rest of the week was a frenzy of activity, but we got a lot of work finished and the house is really starting to feel like our home.

Monday afternoon we spent working on the house, I sealed a little over half of the grout while Linzy cleaned the house and setup some of the things we brought over with us. On Tuesday we had Two Men and a Truck move everything from my parents house and the storage unit, as well as had all the appliances delivered. I spent most of the afternoon carrying boxes around the house to the right rooms, while Linzy unpacked box after box of kitchen supplies. I don't think either of us really recalled just how many kitchen boxes we had.

Wednesday was scheduled delivery day. We had deliveries or appointments scheduled 7-9, 9-12, 12-3, and 3-5. Only three of those actually happened (sofas, cable/internet, and water softener), the last (end tables) didn't happen because the delivery guys couldn't find the house. They called, we missed the call and apparently they decided that was good enough and called it a day. After some phone calls, they rescheduled for Thursday morning.

The rest of the week and this weekend has been spent unpacking and trying to get things arranged in the house. At first it didn't feel like we were making much progress but by this weekend things really started coming together.

The house is awesome and has been everything we were hoping it would be. The great room in particular, with the new furniture, is very relaxing. Overall selling our old house, moving, building the new house and moving again was a long process and a lot of work, but well worth it.
