The move continues…

20 Jan

Happy Friday everyone!

Our move into the new apartment continues this weekend. And I gotta say…this is the best way to move. Ever! We carry a little bit more across the hall everyday. And gradually, stuff has started to accumulate in the new apartment.

No muss. No fuss.

My goal for this weekend is to move our closets and our kitchen stuff over. I know that everyone probably says this but I’m going to be more organized in the new place. Ha! Well…it’s at least going to start out more organized. I’m developing systems. I’ve bought shelves and boxes. Our closets and kitchen will not be a disaster this time! Right?!

And because our move has been a piece of cake, I’ve also found room for extra projects. Can’t make things too easy, now can we? So, I’m painting all the IKEA furniture that I hate in a color that I love. Hopefully Deron and Henry like turquoise and teal as much as me cause we’re going to have a lot of blue-ish furniture here soon.

Hope you all have a great weekend!



Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week. Phew.

Our little clan will be decorating the apartment this weekend. Yay Christmas trees! Yay stockings! Yay tinsel and lights and snowflakes! We’re also going to celebrate with the family ┬átradition of “crappy frozen food” (as my brother calls it) and seasonal Christmas beer. I love traditions.

I’m also WAY behind for book club next week. We’re currently reading A Stranger’s Child by Alan Hollinghurst and it’s…tough.

Maybe tough isn’t the right word. It’s sleepy. It’s quiet. It’s unhurried. It’s about British aristocrats after World War I or, as our English book club leader said, “it’s about a bunch of poufs in the English countryside.” Which is true, it is kinda about gays in the English countryside. But it’s taken me two weeks to read 167 pages and I have 200 more to go by Monday. I don’t think that I’m going to make it (eep).

I also promise to put up our Christmas wish lists this weekend. I’m having a lot of fun putting everything together and the Simple Kids philosophy┬ápresents a nice challenge.

More later.

Day 20 complete…66% of the way towards completing my goal. 10 more days to go.


Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week. Our family is hunkering down at home this weekend. Hubby just came down with food poisoning (poor Deron!), so we’re in need of some extra R&R.

And look what came in the mail today…just in time… a care package from the weenie coffee fairy. Now we can snuggle in our jammies and drink delicious peppermint chocolatey-ness. Yum. Thanks weenie coffee fairy!

More tomorrow.
