So.... we did it! We moved. And we are all here...sort of. In a traumatized, what have we done, but excited, sort of way. Because - it turns out - moving into a much bigger place that needs tons of TLC with two little ones is NOT for the faint of heart.
We are hanging in there, chipping away at our to-do list a little at a time, and trying to maintain sanity and some sense of normalcy for the kids. Thank God for my MIL who turns out to be an expert at many household things, and for friends who are generous with their time and encouragement.
There is a lot left to do but we are trying to take it one day at a time, while working hard to make this place our beloved home. I will attempt to share updates on the progress when I have some semblance of sanity and routine back.
Christine, house painter extraordinare, over and out!
