Moving in...

We started moving into our house on Wednesday, which was a long day, once the movers finished bringing in all of the boxes, Paul went to Sears to buy a steam cleaner to clean all of the carpets and try to get rid of the smell of dog. While he managed to the kids I steamed all of the carpets. There is still a small area to do, but I have been busy doing other things, like getting the kitchen sorted so that when our next shipment arrives there will be room for the boxes. Yesterday we got the refrigerator, washer and dryer delivered, then I put some beds part of the way together and washed (by wash I mean put in the dishwasher) most of the dishes that have been in storage for 4 years. There are a lot of things that will find their way to good will, or a garage sale. Then it will be time to buy paint, tape things off and get busy painting the kids rooms and maybe the half bath. That may be a job for the weekend. So much to do, our downstairs is pretty empty, but I am sure I will be able to spend money to fill it up. Today was spent finishing up the kitchen, and going through boxes upstairs to put things away. The kids will have their own closet upstairs to put toys in. Then it was just a general clean up. This weekend I will use Paul’s help to finish putting the kids beds together, shopping for furniture, and possibly look into some paints. The kids had a good time on Wednesday jumping running, and doing somersaults on the second floor and they did not have to walk with quiet feet (we are in a second floor apartment and the kids have to have 'quiet feet'). Nathan enjoyed hiding in the mound of paper from the boxes, and there is only more to come!! The neighbors have been really nice and have small children so it will be nice for the kids, mainly Nathan, there is a 6 year old and a 5 year old. They came over and asked Nathan to come out and play and he was more than willing. It was really nice. I am ready to be settled so I can relax a bit more and get involved in some of the neighborhood activities. That is about all from here. I hope that everyone is doing well and keeping safe.
