Don’t you hate those people who get all excited on Monday mornings. You know the type, they’re all like ‘good morning sunshine’ and I’m like,
And especially when I’m tired or exhausted which is a much more accurate description after the week and the weekend that we just had. I mean closing on two houses in one day is crazy but moving from one into the other in less than 3 days is just, dare I say, stupid?
Clearly MacGyver and I are NOT real men. It took us about 14 trips with a huge car hauler. Did I mention that this is a vacation house? Yeah, we are obviously hoarders and we have a shit ton of pure crap, but we got it moved.
We managed to walk the dogs every day during the move as to try and keep their lives as normal as possible. On one of those mornings MacGyver almost stepped on something and that something is now a new member of the family. Let me introduce you to Squishy Toots.
Cute isn’t he? He was pretty chill during the moving too but then how excited do turtles actually ever get?
So, we got everything in the new house on Friday afternoon and then we spent most of Saturday and Sunday cleaning the new house and moving boxes and furniture into our rooms. We don’t have everything moved in but I did manage to finish, (or semi finish) setting up a few rooms and here they are.
The dining room
And the living room
We still need to paint and hang our pictures and fine tune but since we spend our weekends there, I had to go ahead and set up some things. I don’t mind. I get weirdly excited about decorating. Weirdly. Maybe obsessed is the right word but hey, who’s to say that’s a bad thing? Not me!
The new house is not far from the old one but the water is way better. The fishing is going to be awesome. In case you’re wondering how I know, MacGyver threw one crab trap in the water just after we closed on Friday afternoon. Saturday morning, he pulled up four of these guys.
We got home last night just in time for The Walking Dead which I personally thought was dismal at best. Not one of my favorite episodes ever and actually the Talking Dead which aired afterwards was more exciting in my opinion. Let’s hope it gets better because I can’t stop watching. Why? Ummmm, Daryl!
This morning, we’re over here just trying to get back to normal, which means, I’ve got some new shoes to try out and I’m going for a run.
Have a fantastic Monday, and tell me what you did this weekend.
Do you like moving? How about decorating?
