Home/Life Status Update

Mar 9, 2014

I am so hopeful I will be back to writing book reviews this week (fingers crossed our internet gets set up tomorrow, and I can come out of isolation).

This week brought:
  • my first official, full-blown home meltdown (as in crying, wailing, screaming, the works--I went from "I love this home!" to "Why did we do this to ourselves?!?!" in just a few minutes.
  • deciding on a paint color and then taping, priming, and painting the living room (good-bye, obnoxious ugly gold; hello, cool inviting gray)
  • going couch shopping with three children (about as unrelaxing as it sounds). The next night, when we got a babysitter and went with Mike's sister and husband, was much nicer and resulted in us actually making a purchase.
  • shopping trips to Home Depot, Ikea, Home Goods, Overstock, etc.
  • meeting new neighbors
  • enjoying the glorious sunshine
  • not enough unpacking
  • very little reading
Here's to life getting more and more normal.


  1. Moving is always SO MUCH MORE WORK than I anticipate! Good luck.

  2. It's so hard, isn't it? whenever you make any major life change. Hang in there - it will get better. And before you know it you'll be remembering all the reasons your move was a good idea and you will love your new home as it begins to feel like home :)

  3. I don't know if I commented on your previous posts, so Congratulations on the new baby and new house!

  4. You know, I have been writing a blog without internet since August

  5. Homebuying is emotional. So I feel ya.
    Yay for Ikea, Home Depot, and Lowes.
    I heart soft gray too!
