Settling In

Well I am finally settling in. Made some headway in the garage. Still trying to figure out where everything should go. Of course our plan is to move in the next year or so, so sometimes I feel like it’s a moot point. But I am still working on it. I have started back on my daily chore sheet and Flylady zones so hopefully in the next month even more headway can be made. I am hopeful this week to get back to going to the gym, regular cleaning and unpacking and cooking. I need to work on my menu plan and shopping. Right now we just have the one fridge and the freezer is very tiny so I am shopping week to week. Once the garage gets fully cleaned out and set up I can plug-in my deep freezer and spare fridge. THAT I am looking forward to.

Of course it’s not all sun and flying unicorns. On Saturday I got up early and decided to cook breakfast. I turned on the stove and it made a loud popping noise and a flame shot out. Not exactly what I wanted. So now this week we get to switch out a stove. Luckily I have a great father who will do it rather than waiting 2 weeks for the hubs to get home. Never a dull moment in my home.

So, do you have a new house adventure when you moved into your home?

MIA

If you’ve been wondering where I haveĀ been its complicated. First we moved. AGAIN! But this time not into a rental but rather into our new home. Then we had to get internet. And that was a job all in itself. It took THREE weeks to get it done. There was so much miscommunication. FINALLY I went in there and explained I wanted to speak to the owner’s wife. That got results. Had them out here the same day. But they couldn’t get into the neighbor’s yard due to their dog. Are you FREAKIN kidding me? So got them out the next day (yesterday) and got it all taken care of. I now have internet AND cable. And due to all of the mistakes I know have a year of all movie channels for FREE. Sweet!

So now I am back. And looking to get back into regular postings. I am working on a WFM Wednesday post and of course coupon previews. I also hope to work on posts on decorating and organizing my new home. Anything else you would like to see? Drop me a line.

Untill then…..take care!

A Moving Experience

As you may or may not know my family just moved over Memorial weekend. Let me tell you, its been an experience. I have not really moved to much. Moving out of my parents house wasn’t hard because I didn’t have much. Then when we moved into our first and second homes we still didn’t have much. But after 6 years and 2 more kids living with us we seemed to have acquired MUCH junk. We did not pack the way I wanted but I have now come up with a plan for our next move….in 2 months. Most of our stuff has stayed packed as this is a temporary move. When we move anything that we need absolutely will have a red dot placed on it. That would be food, china, & clothes. Then things we need after that will have a blue dot. Computers, DVDs, entertainment items. After that we wrote on the boxes what they contain.

Now while still here I will be purging. I love freecycle and hope to get rid of a ton of item. Maybe a garage sale at our next home too. I want to embrace the minimalist lifestyle…lol….well at least stand near it.

Have you ever moved? Got any tips, tricks or advice?
