We have a place to live!!!!

Monday, July 6, 2009

We found a new place to live and started moving this weekend. We were asked to leave our old home, to make room for our landlord's in-laws. It kinda sucked, but we were determined to make something good come of it.

And it appears that things are working out. Our new home is bigger. We have a living room, a family room, a formal dining room and a sun room. We don't have enough furniture for all the rooms we now have. My wife will get her very own studio in the sun room and the kids can still be in separate rooms. I'm hoping I hear a lot less of "MOM! HE'S TOUCHING ME!!!"

The yard has not been kept up. It's bone dry and everything is dead or dying. But it will be fun to start afresh. The back yard has lots of ivy and overgrown trees, a pond that has been removed, some rock and brick work and a couple raised beds for gardening. It's desperate for some creative work and we'll both enjoy that challenge.


Finally, I will still have a good sized kitchen. Obviously, the kitchen is an important room in my home. This kitchen is nice and roomy, has almost as much storage as my old one and has an attached pantry, so, hopefully I'll be back with the food shortly. I made enchiladas last night, so hopefully, I'll get that posted soon.

  7. Congrats! That kitchen, oh it's lovely looking. All that counter space!

  8. Whoa! Look at that kitchen. That was what drew me back to the house I am living in now. The kitchen.

    If I am going to spend that much time preparing food, I need to be comfortable in that space.

    Glad you are setling into your new surroundings.

  13. Glad you found somewhere to live, that kitchen's massive. I love my house but the kitchen is really tiny!

  15. I am glad you found somewhere to live as well, with space for you to garden. The kitchen is absolutely beautiful, it would be the first place in a house to draw me in.
