Nineteen days.

Its been nineteen days since we closed on this house and we still haven't spent the night here. Tonight we will though. Its amazing how you can plan for a three week overlap to get all settled in and you still seem to be doing everything at the very last minute. Well, not everything, but I did envision us being all settled in by now. I also envisioned having everything painted and sorted and etc. Overambitious, you think?

The master bedroom and Beanie's room are painted. The living room is mostly done, just have to touch up some paint and finish painting the formerly IMO guacamole green accent wall above the fireplace. The workout room is mostly done as well. That leaves the office, the playroom, the accent wall in the dining room and (eventually) the kitchen.

Its funny because the whole three-week-overlap led me to believe we'd be all settled in and homey by now. Not the case at all! I've been itching to have some of Beanie's (and my) friends over for a backyard playdate, but this house is just not suitable for a bunch of toddlers yet. Soon, hopefully!

Almost everything is out of the rental. I think we will finish that today as well. I really hate going back and forth between home and sort-of home.

What is that law I learned about in business school? Oh yes, Parkinson's Law.....

Work expands to fill the time allotted to it.

So true.


  1. I have never actually heard Parkinson's Law, but it is SO TRUE! Or, at least it provides an excuse for my procrastination tendencies - it's not me, it's a natural law!

  2. Let me know if you need help painting...I dragged my mom over to our house and we did it all in a weekend! Of course, we just did white/cream throughout most of the house...Seriously, let me know if we can do anything to help! Moving is a nightmare and unpacking is the worst...we still have a garage full of boxes and we've been here since January!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
