First Week in Our House

We are nearing the one week mark of moving in and have made great progress in the unpacking/setting up of our home. In fact, we were so ahead that after dinner last night we hooked up the tv with the dvd player and watched a Netflix. Honestly, I think it was exactly what we all needed, especially Tater who slept the whole time on the sofa with his daddy.

This weekend is the Monte Vista Home and Garden show. Reid and I are planning to go and peruse ('cause we're pretty sure we can't afford anything)! Our hope is that by the end of the weekend we will be completely box free downstairs, have made a good headway on the boxes in the garage and at least somewhat sorted my craft room.

In somewhat related news, Tater has been very good this week seeing as it is his first full week being alone for long hour stretches. We came home one evening to spots all over the floor (unfortunately including our cream carpet in the living room) made by both ends of Tater (enough said). After quite a bit of cleaning and griping Reid and I both took reality pills saying we have pets and are going to have children... these are just the first of many spots. And very funny... on Monday the only thing Tater appeared to have upset was a 5lb bag of potatoes, which he drug from the kitchen to the main foyer, tore into and rolled the potatoes all over the floor! He didn't eat them. He was just trying to tell me that he wanted more toys/balls I guess!

As I still don't have internet at home I hope that you all have glorious weekends and I'll be checking in with you on Monday.

YEAH!!! SPots!

So sorry about the "spots" - that is not a fun thing to come home to. You are right though, with kids and pets it is just a reality. I cannot believe we chose to put in light colored carpet that hides nothing. :) Oh well. One of these days we'll have to replace it.

Happy unpacking! Enjoy the home and garden show - I find them inspiring!

too funny about the potatoes! Tater makes his own toys with his bretheren.

Tater had to christen the house somehow! He will adjust just fine. And yes, more spots will come, just wait until your child pees on the floor (long story about that one). Yeah to more unpacking. Have fun. I get to begin packing soon, not really looking forward to that.

Poor stressed out little beagle. Look on the bright side? If he keesp doing that, you will eventually have a brown carpet and then you won't have to worry anymore.

Yeah, when the kids came along for us, we were getting tired of garage-sale furniture, but we still have it and likely will for another 2 years at least.

Invest in spot cleaner, and think about getting a couch that is vinyl so that any wet spills can just be wiped away. I just got washable slipcovers for my vinyl couch since I am sick of the color.

Hang in there... buying a house and moving is one of the most stressful things someone can do.
