We moved in to our new place over Memorial Day weekend, and yesterday our dsl service was finally cut on. We're getting settled in out here in the country and really enjoying the change of pace from 'motel hell'. The unpacking is slow going. I rely on J to bring in boxes from the carport, and bring loads over from the storage unit, and if he doesn't do his part, I can't do mine. We're also waiting on some furniture to come TN later this month. I have the kitchen unpacked, and the nursery unpacked and set up, and mine and the kids clothes unpacked out of the suit cases. I still have stuff in baskets and boxes though, waiting on my dresser and chest of drawers. We bought some new furniture last Saturday. I have a new couch and a new glider with a foot stool, both of which are really nice. I am still on the prowl for a wing chair to put in the living room. I really want to paint, because the walls are pretty dingy, but I don't think I can do it alone, and I think it's pretty far down on J's list of projects right now. There are plenty of little, and big, projects to work on around here. I'm still a little peeved that we spent so much time and energy and money on the old house, making it nice for someone else. I feel like J. won't be nearly as motivated to help me make this place as nice for us. He is wanting to spend all our extra money right now on expensive lawn equipment and eventually a motor cycle to ride to work (to save money on gas he says).
