Week in Review: Rhonda

Thanks for showing up yet again to see what I have been up to.  We have lived through the first week in our new house and I am so pleased to watch the house coming together!  Tuesday the fridge came, which changed everything for the better.   You really get an appreciation for appliances when you have to live without them for several days.

By Thursday, we had settled into an adaptation of our usual routine…waiting out front for Stuart to come home from work, then helping him make his dinner.

I spent Friday running errands and hammering shit into the walls.  It is starting to look less like a model home and more like we live here.

We spent Saturday cleaning and unpacking the remaining boxes in preparation to have friends over.  Some of Stuart’s coworkers came over in the evening and we had some drinks and grilled.

We wrapped up a wonderful weekend by grilling again and then I soaked with a new bath bomb.  Can’t beat that for a Sunday evening!

Here’s to another week!  I hope yours was amazing.

 

 

All the craziness of life

So, you may (or more likely, may have not) noticed the lack of posts by me lately.  When my apartment flooded last week and the water fried my beloved MacBook Elizabeth, I was lost in my blogging pattern.  Not only did I not have my trusty machine, but I also did not have time to compose something on my iPhone app.  I had to deal with all the ridiculousness that comes with a flooded apartment, including but not limited to, speeding up our search for a rental house.  We are just so completely done with our townhouse.  It’s too small and so freaking old that we literally have maintenance here every week.

We have looked at countless houses and applied for several.  We finally got a break today when we were approved for our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE HOUSE!  We felt immediately at home the moment we walked in the door and I just had a feeling it was ours.  I am so glad I was right.

It is the perfect home for our big little family.  Stay tuned to our Facebook page, where I will be doing a LIVE tour on move in day! You can also look forward to some decorating and organizing posts!

And please keep being patient as I work out my blogging equipment issues.  Currently writing this one from my OLD macbook pro, Estelle.  It took me 3 hours to boot her up and I am now trying to not let her go to sleep for fear she will never wake up.
