We're In!

Well, not completely. After what seems like eternity, we were finally able to get into our new house on Monday afternoon.

It smelled weird, and the reality of all the little (and not so little) things we have to do really set in. But we're so excited. Luckily since we're renting our current house, there's no hurry to get everything out, other than the very real threat of two mortgages. Who needs money! So the plan is to do any plaster work, sand and restain the hardwood floors, and paint the main rooms before completely moving in. We'll see how it goes.

The kitchen is worse than I thought. I spent all of yesterday (minus a couple of swimming breaks!) scrubbing it, and I still didn't finish. I don't thinking cleaning was a priority for the previous owners. Seriously, my arms are sore. What I really want to do is take a sledgehammer to it, but alas, kitchen remodel is not in the budget right now.

On a positive note, we found lots of little gifts throughout the house left by the sellers.

Lots more pictures and updates to come!


  1. aww, maybe the enjoy your new home randomness kinda sorta makes up for the kitchen cleaning you had to do?

  2. Nice people! Can't wait to visit the new house :)
