I am welcoming the first day of July with open mind and fresh start at our new home. We have moved in finally and it has been very busy. We were supposed to move early in June but because of the delay in the flooring project, it pushed us to the very last week to finally be able to move in. It was chaotic too because, on the week that we are scheduled to move, I was here painting walls just because I needed to be here since someone is working on our floors so I thought mind as well knock out the painting project. Mind you, I finished most of it with the exception of the main bath and that's because there were furniture inside it and I couldn't get in there before. That being said, I did not have time to pack everything as I was here dealing with our floor dilemma.
But anyway, I have been unpacking for five days now and it seems like it's never gonna end. There's boxes still laying everywhere. It's crazy how much you have collected over the years and you never know it until you move! The living room is clear with boxes now so it is looking like a home although I haven't finish decorating in it.
As I have mentioned before, this house has no centralized air conditioning so imagine how hot it is right now that summer is in full swing. We purchased another unit of window AC for our bedroom and we installed the two ACs that the former owner left for us at the children's individual bedrooms. So while the upstairs is cool and comfortable, the downstairs is not! Luckily, I have awesome tower fans from Ozeri that we can use. These fans are great to have as the wind that blows out is very cool it feels as almost we have an AC unit in the living room as the fans oscillates quietly. It makes it comfortable for the kids to hangout there and watch TV. You can get this fan atAmazon at a discounted price with free shipping.
Joseph Joseph, the dish rack and the chopping boards. Although I love them because they are space savers, I kinda miss the big dish rack that I had at our old home as it holds a lot of dishes. I wash dishers manually pretty regularly so our dish rack is always full. Our plates are thicker so it is kind of a little tighter on this dish rack but I am glad that the it is well made as it holds the plates' weight pretty good.
We will rent a truck again this weekend to move everything out so we could list the house in the market. I dedicated my day yesterday cleaning walls and cleaning the carpets over at the other house. When we bought that house, everything is dirty so I had to clean and clean and now that we are selling it, I want to leave it clean so the new owners don't have to do as much cleaning as I did before.
Bathrooms are pretty much organized now too. I am glad there is a big closet in the main bathroom as I have space to stack all the towels and even some of the bed linens. The master suite is smaller and it doesn't hve a closet but a small standing space with open shelves for towels and other things.
That is it for now, I have to squeeze this post in my very busy schedule as it is long over due. I will try to clear the family room today because the piano movers are coming to bring the piano. Moving piano is costly. It cost $150 to move ours. Althought moving is very exciting, it is also very expensive and stressful!
