We had Verizon and the Lowe's blinds installer in on Friday, painted just ONE room (with the help of my mom) and moved on Saturday! Our new home is a MESS, but its still OURS!!
We still have a few things at the old place, but at least the movers got most of it for us. We used My Truck Buddy. They are awesome. We also used them last year to move into the apartment. They are affordable, quick and polite. If you are in the market for a moving company, they are your guys! The only thing they don't do, is back your boxes. TOTALLY worth it though!
My mom rolled up to the house right as the movers were arriving with our stuff on Saturday and once they unloaded everything, she blew through the kitchen and unpacked all of our boxes! It was such a big help. I wonder if I can get her to come back and do the rest of the house? :P
I think once we get settled in, it will begin feeling more like a home. We still have tons of painting to do because on Friday, the paint fumes and dust in the new house made me sick. Did you know that paint fumes can give you bronchitis? YEP it CAN! Its not contagious or anything, but still very inconvenient. So it will be a slow process for us, but I am determined to get it all done!
Once the house is in better shape, I will take some photos.
In the mean time, here is one of the messy living room with one of the rugs we bought during black Friday. Don't mind the TV on the floor. We are in the process of remedying that now!
