Buying a house has been super exciting mixed in with stressful.  The novelty and fun of it all has worn off at this point.  Why?  Because the movers are (hopefully) coming tomorrow.

Packing sucks.  We only have a 2 bedroom apartment, but it feels like we have enough junk to fill an 8 room mansion!  Okay, not really, but where did all this stuff come from??  Just when it feels like we are making a dent, we realize how much more needs to be packed.  It is absolutely awful and one of the most stress-inducing activities I can think of.  And to top it all off, we had an ice storm here earlier this week, have been in the teens all week (for the high temp, mind you) and today we got about 4 inches of snow dumped on us.  The combo of all this has made the roads pretty ugly and resulted in the delay of the delivery of our new living room furniture.  We now have to wait until Thursday to get the sofa and loveseat that was supposed to arrive today.  After the phone call from the furniture delivery people, I thought it would be prudent to call the movers.  Long story short, we are scheduled for moving late tomorrow afternoon if the snow/ice/slush melts enough for them to deem is safe to move/drive.  Please keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that they show up!

On a happier note, we got some new hardwood floors installed this week and they look great!  We also were able to get the dingy upstairs carpet cleaned before moving all our stuff in.

Also, we took Lacey to the house for the first time this week and she loved it!  She loved it even more today with all the snow in the backyard.

Pouncing in the snow
 As inconvenient as the weather has been, the snow covered house and yard were absolutely beautiful this morning.  Much prettier than a sheet of ice over everything!

Winter wonderland

Some sort of animal was lurking around the house - these tracks were in the front then between our house & the neighbor's

Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move this weekend.  Hopefully we won't strangle each other before it's all said and done!
