Hello Everyone!

After being in our new house for a few days, I have had time to reflect on the process of getting settled into a new home. I thought packing up a house was a big enough chore, but I did not prepare myself for the task of trying to find a useful place for everything Mike and I were unpacking.

There are still boxes sitting in the living room, waiting to be gone through. For now I have decided to drape a tablecloth over them to make our home look a little less cluttered.

To make matters more exciting, Mike and I didn’t own any furniture except a bed when we moved. The reason we are such minimalists is because the last home we lived in was furnished and the one we just moved into is not.

If you ever have the opportunity to furnish a home, you will find that it is pretty expensive. So we have decided to look at thrift stores for things like tables and dressers. We did go to Walmart and buy the cheapest folding chairs they had so we didn’t have to sit on the floor.

I have also found that there are about a million other things to do when you first move into a new house besides the obvious tasks. For example, finding a good internet provider, registering our cars for parking, and applying for a new post office box. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Even though we are almost completely unpacked, I think the hardest part of this experience was figuring out where to hang the pictures and deciding where I would put everything away.

  1. Happy to hear your moving experience is moving in the right direction. Yes, there are a million and one things to do. I swear it never gets done. But all of it is your very own creation. You are adding your own personality into every corner. You’re creating magic even if Wal-Mart had a hand in it. Enjoy!!!
