After many trips back and forth (with a WHEELBARROW) (in 95+ degree weather!) (UPHILL BOTH WAYS) last week, we’re officially settled into our new house. We still have plenty of projects to tackle, including emptying out our rented storage facility, dealing with bogus light fixtures, finishing the sunroom floor, despairing uselessly over all the mismatched cabinets, and un-fucking the family room we’ve been using as a dumping ground since we moved in, but man, things are looking much better than they were.
The whole process thus far has been expensive, exhausting, and time-consuming … but also kind of insanely rewarding? I don’t know if it’s Stockholm syndrome or what, but I am falling in love with our hoopty little home.
