Friday was our big moving day. We were up bright and early to finish the last minute packing before the movers arrived. Kristian stayed at the condo while the movers loaded the truck and I went ahead to the townhouse to wait for the water guy to come turn on our water which was supposed to have been on Thursday. No flushing toilets = no bueno.
Our movers did a fantastic job. I can't even imagine having that as a job and spending your days lifting and carrying heavy boxes and furniture. NoThankYou. Hiring movers was the best decision ever and I will never not use movers in the future. They arrived at 9am at the condo and were done unloading at the townhouse at 2pm. We gave them each a tip along with some pizza and beer that we had for lunch.
Right after they left, Value City showed up with our new couch and bedroom set. I LOVE them! Our couch is quite large and probably a little too big for our living room but I don't care, I think it looks great and it's SOOO comfortable. We've become great friend already. Our bedroom furniture is beautiful, my only complaint is that having the darker wood shows dust so much more easily. I feel like I'm constantly having to wipe down the furniture. Also, our bed it now set up REALLY high. Like ridiculously high to the point where I may need to get a step stool to get into bed at night. But I actually like the look of the higher bed.
We've been working like mad to unpack and get everything set up. My mom and brother came over yesterday (Sunday) so that helped motivate us on Saturday to get shit done. We have probably 75-80% of the house unpacked. The office hasn't been touched and I just started clearing out the guest bedroom and made that bed today. We still have to unpack all of our decorative stuff, picture frames, candles etc. And of course we still need to paint and hang stuff so we're far from done but at least it looks like a home now rather than just a house and we couldn't be happier.
I promise to post pictures soon of our progress so far, keep in mind the house is a work in progress and we will be making a lot of changes and updates.
