Looking For Routine

Posted on

Before I forget, I’m over at J. L. Bryan’s blog today talking about the Big Bad Wolf. So I was mostly offline this weekend.  This was because I was conquering the garage (in which I can now park), putting together my new weight bench, pulling more stuff out of storage and putting it away, and […]

Adjustment Period

Posted on

Y’all, there is FLOOR in my house.  Who knew that was hiding under all the boxes?  I made massive strides in unpacking yesterday while hanging around home waiting for the internet installers (hubby is now in mourning that we are now paying twice as much for speeds that are a seventh of what we had […]

Midweek Non-Check-In

Posted on

So.  Yesterday was my first day back at work.  It wasn’t awesome. In my totally overwhelmed and physically and mentally exhausted state, I got to start my day being chewed out by my boss for things that blew up while I was away (and I was supposed to do what about this when I was […]

Post Move Report

Posted on

Well, it’s done.  We’re moved.  Well, except for everything in our storage unit and my in-laws’ garage.  But the furniture is in and all the stuff from the old house and my mom’s.  HOW on EARTH did I manage to cram so much into a 1200 square foot house?  HOW?  Because we’ve got over 1,000 […]

Closing Day

Posted on

Today is closing day.  We close on the old house at 9:30 and the new house at 1:30.  EEEEEEEE!!!! Yesterday I finished moving the kitchen (by which I mean it’s moved and unpacked at the new house) except for my pots and pans and a handful of dishes that were in the dishwasher, and the […]

T Minus 2 Days

Posted on

So yesterday went better.  I finished painting the library and the gym room, as well as the laundry room (which wasn’t even on the list to get done before we move but I decided to do because it was easier than painting around the washer and dryer), and I hauled over almost everything from the […]

T Minus 3 Days

Posted on

So, for those of you suffering under the grand delusion that I’m awesome at everything, this post is for you. I unbelievably SUCK at cutting in (you know when you’re painting).  LIKE REALLY REALLY SUCK.  Yesterday’s plan was to get both the gym and library finished.  Well, it turned out that the 10 foot ceilings […]

T Minus Four Days…

Posted on

So I am HOME from DFW and have immediately slid into the anxiety ridden panic that attends moving.  Not because I don’t have a plan, but because I have–erm–issues with having stuff in boxes, not in place, and otherwise general chaos. Which is why I’m so damned efficient at it.  I CAN’T TAKE IT, Y’ALL! […]

Smattering

Posted on

I confess, I’m having a hard time thinking of something to blog about today.  My brain is all full of Daisy (who walked from the car into PT this morning with my holding her harness) and house stuff.  It’s T minus 22 days to closing.  I’ve still got scads of packing to do and my […]

Sunday Summary

Posted on

Late post today.  We’ve been busy busy busy here at Casa Nolan. We started the serious packing today.  The current owner is letting us go ahead and start putting stuff in the garage, so we took the first load over.  Good thing too.  The front half of our house was filling up very rapidly with […]
