    The War on Cardboard and Other Amusements

    I’d say we are about at the midway point of the un-packinig. Slowly but surely we are taking back the house from the sea of cardboard. It’s an uphill battle but with enough lemon bars the war can be won!

    Annalie's bedroom

    Annalie’s bedroom was done but it just didn’t feel right so we rearranged everything all over again. Bethany and I were joking that we like moving 7 foot tall book-filled book cases around like they are 300 pound puzzle pieces.

    When we finally had everything just right with heater vents not covered and at least one exposed plug, the rug didn’t fit so we hacked it up like real IKEA hacks. That was pretty fun.

    We are having a lot of fun. If Toby wouldn’t miss us so much I would seriously consider doing this unpacking gig as a full time job.

    A princess in disguise

    Bug is having the time of her life playing with Annalie and generally just being a kid. The house is big and full of interesting nooks to explore. But to Bug the outside is even more exciting and she begs to go outside all day long. It’s going to be hard for her to go home where she is stuck in her boring old living room while I get stuff done on my laptop. That’s life I suppose.

    SAJ vs. the cardboard

    But until then we are going to live it up! And I’m going to show that cardboard who’s boss!
