Pics of the new home

Dinner with friends was great. We got the bedroom curtain done. And the Sounders beat Chicago Crew. Awesomest of nights!  🙂  Here are the promised pics of the new house. Some of these aren’t great shots… but I do what I can with the ‘ol iPhone. And sorry for the total randomness… (also just realized that I haven’t taken any pics of the office, laundry room, or back yard)

Ok, I think it’s safe to say that we’re fully moved in! Yancy has already done a few little projects around the house (like fixing the shower faucet, the toilet, pruning the palm trees, and clearing the blocked rain gutters). And tonight I’ll be doing my last personal project of making curtains for two of the windows (with the help of a friend). I’ll be taking pictures and posting tonight or tomorrow.  🙂

I forgot to mention that I got to hear my baby’s heart beat out loud for the first time this week. At previous appointments the doc couldn’t find it with the doppler, but was still able to see it with ultrasound. This time I got to hear the whoosh, whoosh, whoosh! The baby has a nice strong heart beat and seems to be pretty active at times. I’m getting more and more excited about the 20 week ultrasound! :O)

I better get off the computer now since I’ve got a little more house cleaning to do. We’re having our first dinner guests tonight. It’s gonna be stewed pork chops, rice, and salad. Then curtain making!

Almost done!

I think we’ve set a record for moving and unpacking. Yancy and I picked up boxes less than 2 weeks ago, moved on Thursday afternoon, and had the last box unpacked on Saturday night! AND with my mom’s help, the old house was cleaned (better than when we moved in) and they keys were returned on Friday!! The new house still needs some cleaning and organization, but it’s pretty settled. The last big project will be to put all my artwork on the walls. Then it will really feel like home.  🙂   I’m already getting requests for pictures… I’ll try to post some by the end of the week, but I’ve got lots of busy work to do with all the address changes, calls to utilities, and job searching.

TTFN.   🙂
