yesterday was one of those days that you think you got it all planned out and you realize that you don't know nothing.
we arrived at the uhaul place and didn't realize that i should have made a reservation for a truck. derrrr. so, we cleaned the house instead and have it presentable for showings with the preface of 'we are in the process of moving!'...the kids and i had the best day of our life. it was hard work and hard fun. boothe said last night that it was probably the best day of his life. we were wallowing in a delirium mud puddle while working our little curlique tails off.
we hightailed it back here and unpacked the car. you can have your prius and smart car. my mdx packs a lot of shit. "mama, we don't have a box for this?" stick it in the car. it is just a big old cardboard box that cleans up good. after we unpacked it, i started hanging wallcandy...and i think it is pretty much done.
studio is still there and i miss my stuff, but i am over it for the day or next. setting up shop here will be a task, but a fun task.
what amazes me is that you can have one vibe in a house and put the same stuff in another and get another vibe. my sister & her husband came through yesterday on the way to pick up their urchins at camp and i was telling her that the style of this home is rio chic. when one of the movers walked in on monday, he looked around and said "now, this place is hood. i like it." and i know exactly what he means. it is simple and doesn't front.
i love my pantry. it is almost done. i forgot the basket that the little alreadyopened thingies (on the bottom shelf of the top photo) go in back at the old house, but it goes right there. i will be taking more photos this weekend. anyone who wants to see them, zip me an e and i will send the link.
today, i am finishing up three more boxes. eveything is painted and i have the last closet to install. i sold all of my items on craigslist that was for the ceiling fan fund so i will go get the last three today. as our reward for the past two weeks of work, we are going to hear some bands tonight at tantra. tomorrow, we will go watch the stupor bowl featuring football on unicycles and then get crackinlackin again next week and finish the move.
