Boxes, Boxes, Boxes!

I know I have been horrible at updating this as the move progressed early this week! It has been a little crazy and we didn't have internet during a few days of it! Yes, I know, it was so horrible! haha

I successfully packed the house in three days - thank goodness for being unemployed for the time being! God knows what He is doing :) The movers came on Tuesday and moved everything out that we hadn't moved ourselves! We were so grateful to get our bed up before it got too late and enjoy such a good sleep in it Tuesday night! I think I passed out the moment my head hit the pillow since I had been up since 6:30 that morning and had been constantly on my feet and moving all day! We were so grateful to get help from friends from church! They were so generous with their time and energy and we can't thank them enough for being such wonderful help and friends most of all!

Wednesday morning, we got up and hunted all over the house for boxes of things Todd needed in order to leave for some meetings in South Florida. We took a break and walked down to Ace to get a few needed items, and I was so pleased to see in the tiniest Ace I have ever been in - Caren body products and FreshWave! At that moment, I felt good about our new location! :) Todd and I had a nice lunch at Roly Poly at a sidewalk table (on a gorgeous day)! Then, it was time for Todd to get on the road. Which meant, it was time for me to get to work! I spent yesterday afternoon runnign around turning in our old keys, spackling holes in the old place, buying odds and ends at Ikea (and got out of that horrible place for under $100 - I know, very impressive!), and unpacking....until 2 am! After all of my hard work, you can barely tell I did anything, but I promise the kitchen is almost done, and there were about 10 more boxes there at the beginning of the day!

So, here I sit trying to give my poor feet a break before I get up and start back at it! The cable guy was supposed to be here this morning between 8 and 10....it is looking more like 10! Unpacking a new place full of boxes, with no internet or cable is pretty lonely! I cannot wait for Todd to get home tonight!


  1. You're too funny. Ikea used to be your store of choice.

  2. Yes, it was when I was in college and had absolutely zero money, but still wanted to have an apartment that felt homey, and not like a dorm! However, my newest find at Ikea is super cheap drawer organizers! They have the big 20" x 20" ones for serving utensils and things for $3!! You can't beat that!
