My computer tells me it's the last day of April, but in all honesty I have no idea what day it is. I'm not even sure how long we've been here. Our move was so stressful and tiring. We rented a 17' truck on a Friday afternoon. The plan was to get everything on the truck that night. Mainly so we could get the tow car attached. Ha! Such a funny joke we played on ourselves. By 10 that night we still had so much left to do, and the truck was practically full. We were freaking out! What would we do if it didn't all fit? Could we get a bigger truck? Could we get a small trailer to tow? Would we have to leave it all? After a fitful last night, on the floor, of our house we got up and just packed as much as we could. We would just have to store the rest. So by 5 Saturday evening we were all packed up and ready to leave on our 10+ trip to Indiana. The trip was very slow going. We had to go 50mph most of the way. We stopped to rest in Charleston, WV around 2 a.m. Sunday morning. So, at 4:30 Sunday, we were into our new apartment. We unpacked the truck (this time with help) and finally rested. I guess it's been a week now. The first thing I did was get the kitchen functioning. Then I tackled the bathrooms. We have our bed set up, but still need to put Story's together. Jordan had to start work the day after we moved in, so we're waiting for his days off to get the big stuff put together.
The kitchen is coming together nicely. Even though it is smaller than our old one, I feel like we have more space. More functioning space I should say. It's obviously still a work in progress. We don't have any of the decor out.
Oh yeah. we're painting the kitchen the same color as the old cabinets. The kitchen has fluorescent lighting, and we hate it. So for now we are using the small light under the sink and over the stove.
The plan is to put shelves on the wall over the dishwasher.
Our island fits really nicely against the long wall. We will probably put more shelves above the island. Not sure about that. It might just be a really awesome piece of art, that we don't have yet :)
Each room in the house is about this put together. I did move a lot of random items of the way. For now, storage is complicated. I'm storing boxes that will eventually be unloaded after I get a certain area put together. It's a weird cycle. But, it's getting done. It's slowly getting done. That's the beauty of moving.
Thanks for sticking with me. I will have a lot more to share in the upcoming weeks!
The kitchen is almost completely painted!
