AND They’re Settled…Well, Sorta!
Mom and Dad are IN! Ummmm, how happy do they look?!?!?!?!
A little sassy even!
Their truck was supposed to come on Wednesday. However, due to a little office-in-NY mixup, it came yesterday. God bless the 4 men (2 of which moved US into OUR home almost a year ago!) who moved 7,000 something pounds up and down stairs in 97° heat. What a crazy hard job! A shout out to Eduardo (he prefers to be called “Homie,” but I just can’t) and his crew – you were the best! (FYI: Homie is SO not reading this.)
Things were too
messy hectic at the house yesterday for Mom and Dad to sleep there, but tonight might be the night! Mom is an ninja at unpacking. And Dad? He’s good at hiding. Haha – just kidding, Dad (kinda). The place looks GREAT and the new furniture looks AWESOME, thanks to Mom’s cut-out-$1 store wrapping paper-in-the-same-size-as-the-furniture-to-figure-out-how-it’ll-look-while-at-the-closing technique. See…
You should’ve seen their realtor/our friend’s reaction to that trickery! We are
crazy creative! (Yes – creative, too!)
That’s right, $herdog and John at Young House Love, why didn’t you think of that?! Haha.
CONGRATULATIONS on your new digs, Mom and Dad! Welcome to the neighborhood!!!
p.s. I’m brewing up the idea of a “Mom and Dad’s Corner” of the blog. They’re newbies in the South, too, and they lived in the North much longer than we did! Name ideas for their “corner?!”
p.s.s. I loved my friend Sean’s post on Facebook today (we went to the same high school in NY, but he now lives in Chucktown) – “Everyone up north is complaining about the crazy heat wave. Funny I call it June through August.”
