Moving In

by Tammy on May 9, 2018

Our closing went off without a hitch yesterday. We were in and out in less than an hour, and then it was off to the utility company to get the water put in our name. After that we stopped and grabbed a quick lunch, went to the house to get keys and garage door openers, and then Dan took me back to work. After I got off, I went to the trailer and emptied what Dan had left behind. He brought the animals to the house and as much of his stuff as he could fit in his truck, so I have my clothes, all the miscellaneous crap I had packed in my car on the trip down, and the food. There are still some canned goods that we need to get out of there, but other than that it is basically empty. I did just a little cleaning and by the time I got back to the house, it was after 7:00 P.M. I got the birds settled into their cage in their new room and put a few things away, but then we had to run to Walmart to get an air mattress since our ABF truck wasn’t delivered until after we got home, so we got zero unpacking done last night. Today Ben is going to come over and help Dan unload while I’m at work. He spent one last night at April’s apartment. April has not felt well, so she has not even seen the house yet.

After we get somewhat settled in, I will need to measure windows and buy window treatments. The previous owner did leave a couple of blinds and curtains, but she took almost everything. The bird room has a huge window with no covering at all, so I need to get some room darkening curtains for that one. We also need some patio furniture. I want to get a nice swing or loveseat for the front porch and then some comfy furniture for the screened in porch. I will probably wait until this weekend to do the shopping for those things.

Well, I need to go get ready for work now. I’ll write more this weekend.

Hi Tammy, so excited for you. I hope you take before and after pictures for me. I bought room darkening shades too for my craft room which will not be Daniel and Mel’s room. I wrote about it at my blog. How long does it take you to get to work? I am sure you are looking forward to the weekend. I have to go pack now. Hugs
