We've Moved!

We rented a truck on Sunday and headed down to our "new" house! Most of our belongings fit (where did it all come from?) so we're still going back and forth. It's little frustrating that I've spent the last two weeks at home alone with the kids in our rental while Kansas Dad worked on preparing the new house for us and tomorrow I'll be alone with the kids in our new house while he finishes up at the rental, but it'll all be worth it when we're settled in.

We've lost some storage space, but we've more than made up for it in living space, which I think is a great trade. It's good incentive to clear things out a little, when we have time.

So, we have a lot to do and sadly blogging will be sparse (though I'm constantly thinking of things to say or pictures to show, if only I could find the camera). In addition to all the normal moving stuff, we still have a lot of fixing up to do on the house, but the new paint and new carpet are absolutely wonderful and we've already started to eliminate some boxes.

I must sleep now. I'll need to be alert tomorrow (yikes! later today!) with the kids since we don't really have any kid areas set up yet. (I know; it would be good for their stress levels to do that early on, but we spent the day cleaning the old rental and working and tonight clearing the kitchen enough so we could actually eat here, which we haven't done yet.)

  2. Many congratulations, KM! I look forward to photos not only of the house, but that land. I am so excited for your homesteading project and I look forward to watching it all. :)

  5. Thanks everyone! Everything seems to take longer than it should, but the washer and dryer are finally up and running so I can do some wash tomorrow. Of course, right now we're still living out of suitcases, so there's no real home for the clean clothes, but at least they'll be clean. (The clothes, that is; we're still working on getting the tub clean enough for the kids to take a real bath.)

    I've been meaning to take some pictures of the land but just haven't made it outside with the camera yet. In fact, I need to find the charger for it.

    Yikes, there's a lot to do!
