Well, it’s been a long weekend working at the new house. Thanks to Lyle’s power roller, the upstairs (minus bathrooms) is done as far as painting goes. We’ve got carpet on order – should be in the store in a week, and installed shortle after that. Once the carpet is down, we will officially move in.
On the “boo-hiss” side. I visited our little town’s post office today. Well, it’s a LITTLE post office! I was informed that, since the mail carrier cannot see our house from the curb where the mailbox is, NO packages will be left for us…just a notice to go pick it up at the post office. That’s gonna suck, the amount of on-line shopping I do! I will invest in the largest curb-side mailbox I can find, but that’s not gonna solve everything! And the road to the post office is VERY twisty, windy, and hilly….grand adventures come winter!
Today I spent a couple hours at IKEA…I fell in love there! I wanted so many different things, but had to settle on one thing to start out with (had my small car and no one to help me unload it once I got to the house!). Of course, my future craft room took priority! I bought some shelving units that have bins to slide in and out. These will replace the many plastic drawer towers that I’ve been using. I have to finish assembling them, then see what the space in that room will be like before investing in other storage units or tables. I can’t wait! I also saw a sofa, sofa tables, and a book case that I plan to get for the living room (unless Lyle completely turns his nose up at them). I’ll have to wait a couple weeks till I have enough free time – and Lyle’s truck! – before making any more IKEA purchases!
Once things start getting moved in, I will certainly be posting more pictures. For today – some views of the painting accomplishes yesterday!
