I am thrilled to be posting from our new house this morning while my man snoozes in bed a few feet away. Praise the Lord!
The work is not over yet (we have lots of clean up to do at the old house, some finishing to do in our new room, and, of course, the whole unpacking thing), but we are so thankful to be officially moved over (aka - sleeping in our new home).
I haven't been good about posting progress reports, so I'll recap:
On Sunday we painted the new room. It was thrilling to see paint finally going up on the ceiling and walls. There were times in the last month that I have wondered if it would ever happen.
Here's Jonathan cutting in on the ceiling:

(a note about pictures: I've just started a new habit of of shrinking pictures before I upload them to the blog. So, when you click on the pictures, you'll see a bigger picture, but not as big as you used to see. If I ever post something you'd like a full-sized copy of, just email me and I'll send it to you. Not that I'm expecting you to want full-sized copies of our painting pictures.)
Monday we didn't get to work over at the new house because Jonathan's work-for-money day was very long. So yesterday, we brought over three loads. When we brought the first one, we took time to mop the floor in the new room, scrape up drywall mud, sweep, and mop again. The second load was beds and clothes, and the third load was office stuff. Jonathan got the computers up and running last night (or was it technically this morning...).
Today, I hope to get a bit of pre-cooking done and establish as much order as possible in my home. We'll see how it goes; I'm learning to be flexible and let go of my expectations more often. I even bought myself frozen pie crusts last night at the store!
My composition teachers would be appalled at my lack of writing finesse this morning, but I wanted to get an update done. So there you have it - we're in. Wootles!
