Busy, busy

Well, I think we're feeling a little more settled these days. I have been pretty productive around the house this last month. We had the electrician come and ground some outlets, add some outlets, and make some safety upgrades. Then we had the insulation guys come and add a foot of insulation to our attics. I unpacked and rearranged enough stuff to get both cars in the garage! We've had multiple refrigerator repairs and FINALLY got a new fridge yesterday- I'm so excited I'll be able to buy milk on our next grocery trip! We also had our stove repaired since one of the burners decided to stop working. We bought 2 sofas and a recliner for our living room. We also have all of our TVs hooked up with converter boxes and antennas now. We still don't watch hardly any TV, but the option is there if we ever have time. My latest project is getting blinds on all the windows. I am 1/3 done! I put together a 5 drawer dresser, nightstand and matching headboard for the guestroom too. Little by little it all seems to be coming together. I still lack curtains and wall decorations, but those things take time to find. Maybe some after-Thanksgiving shopping will help! I'll try to post some pictures before too long.

I want to see pictures of your new furniture!

I remember when we moved from our tiny Oklahoma apt into our house in Moscow. Not that the Moscow house was that big, but it was a mansion compared to our apartment, practically void of furniture. So we had to fill it, which was fun, and daunting, and expensive... but mainly fun :)

Hope you guys have fun with the decorating!

(Oh, and if it makes you feel better, we only have curtains on 3 windows, and still have a blanket nailed up in Lily's room... somehow not a priority for us!) :)

Don't feel bad. I've been here over a year and still have bedroom and living room drapes on hangers. You are definitely ahead of me.
