Ready to Slow Down

I was doing so good blogging every day, then we moved and I don't have the time anymore. But I will eventually, once we're settled. I can't wait for that time! In the last two weeks since we've moved in we've done quite a few projects. Our basement had linoleum floors and white walls, and now it has dark red walls and we had carpet installed. My dad added the cedar trim and door.
I'm going to paint that bench (for our flat screen to go on) and add the little lamp shades (like above right) to the rest of the lights. 

We also knocked down our kitchen /dining room wall (and by WE I mean my dad and his wife).  (Don't look at my dead roses). My brother will be remodeling our kitchen some time this summer. For now it's a great open space for us. Such a difference.

Every day and night we literally have had thing after thing to do. Yesterday we cleaned two houses, then went back to our apartment and cleaned stuff out for three hours. I felt so bad we didn't get home to our son until almost six o'clock at night. No sooner were we in the house when the doorbell rang and the life insurance guy was here (we forgot he was coming).  He was here for two hours and finally left at 8pm when we still have to have dinner. 

It has pretty much been this crazy since we moved in. I told Mike that after this weekend, we need to slow down. No more major projects (except furniture for the basement, but that's fun). I want to just concentrate on unpacking everything and enjoy being a family in our new house. And start blogging again!!
