Home "strange" home

Tonight is the first night we will be spending in our house.

I've been painting and painting and it seems that I'm not getting anywhere. Well unless you wanna count the paint I have on my hands and arms.....

There is a lot to do, but we will get there eventually. We were living in a 1 bedroom apartment before and now we live in a 3 bedroom house with a biga$$ basement, huge backyard and 2 garages. We have so much space we don't know what to do with ourselves or our things. So what did we decide to do? We have an empty house and we put all of our possessions in the garage. Bit backwards no?

The good thing is that I'm on vacation for the next two weeks and Jeff will join me next week so we expect to get a lot done. So far we've already painted most of the rooms, sanded our hardwood floors and refinished it in the whole house, now we just have to furnish, decorate, and sit back and relax. Sometimes I think its just easier to move ourselves into the garage to end the headache, um.... I might just do that...

Since its the first night here, I have to honestly say that it feels very odd. Its a strange place to me....for now..... I'm sure as we start getting everything together it will slowly start feeling as our home sweet home...


  1. New homes are always a lot of hard work..I feel your pain.

    We've been in our house for over 2 years now and we're JUST beginning to do some improvements. I'm expecting our kitchen to be in complete shambles in the next few days while our new floor is put in! Ack..can't wait.

  2. I'm sure your home will feel like "sweet home" in no time. Give it a few weeks and you will be comfortable. If that fails then I agree with you: move to your garage lol

  3. Thanks for the compliment- who are you? How did ya find me?

  4. New homes ARE a pain! We're currently helping my sister with hers! It's a lot of work!

    Thanks for your well wishes, and vote of confidence that things will be okay! Hope all is well with you!
