Thank you for the kind words about the move!
Here’s a picture of the house. I don’t know if you can tell from this photo, but it was built in the 1980′s. Since we spent so many years house-hunting in LA looking at 50′s-built bungalows, the 80′s feel very fresh and modern to us. All that brass and wood trim. How very clever of them!
It is a nice house, but we have a lot of work to do before we can move in. (A new roof and correcting some drainage issues to start…) The truth is we have probably watched too much HGTV and bitten off more than we can chew. However, you might want to wait a little while before you point that out. It’s still new, and after a weekend scrubbing on our hands and knees, we might be a little bit sensitive.
I totally cheated on that last post and used a photo of some moving boxes from a previous move. (I know, I know. I’m sorry.) The reality is that we have not started packing anything. We are still on part 1: cleaning. (And to be honest, I think we may be on part 1 for awhile.)
It is all very exciting though. The house is full of spiders, so that keeps it extra exciting. We won’t need any Halloween decorations this year. The house came with plenty!
So tell me: how many couples do you think HGTV has sent to counseling? They make it all look so easy!
