letting the pieces fit

one down, one to go. we found a new home. it feels weird to think that soon we will be living in a new neighbourhood, a neighbourhood that neither of us really know at all, in a new house. it is a cute little house where we will live on the main floor, a student lives in a suite downstairs. there is a backyard and sun deck and it is all ours. cohen is going to have his own room where i can put his art on the walls, and at last i can go back to reading in bed at night without having to worry about waking him up. there will be many summer bbq's, complete with sprinkler jumping and wading pool sitting. the suite itself is about 1000 sqft with a fairly large living room, separate dining room and two bedrooms, with plenty of storage in the basement (which is perfect for the 9 rubbermaids of kids clothes i have).

cohen is at grandma's this weekend, so i really should be packing like crazy, but motivation has been a bit of an issue. still, i have managed to get the bedroom 3/4 done and the night is still young, so with a little perseverance i should be able to get it finished. i know that we still have two weeks before we move, but thinking about trying to pack everything while watching cohen gives me a headache, it would be nice to have it mostly done ahead of time so that i don't have to think about it.

we are going to sign a lease tomorrow, i will bring my camera and maybe come back with some pictures to share, till then enjoy another one of ada, cause one just isn't enough.

Ada is so beautiful. Totally beautiful. I'm so happy for you with your house. I know your excited. Packing does suck. I'm sorta doing a similar thing right now. Though it's my parents that are moving, from a 7 bedroom house of my youth where my brothers and I were all raised. To a much smaller 3 bedroom house that is better for them. 7 bedrooms will not fit into a 3 bedroom home. Plus their now house has a ball room, two sunrooms 3 full baths a living room, two sitting rooms and a full basement. Why am I packing???

Cause anything I don't want to see sold in the sale I have to take. Things like the piano which I want. I do want, except I've been thinking, where I'm going to put it is right up against the wall that goes to my bedroom...two litle boys "playing..." er beating on it...hum. So I have to get rid of some of my stuff or move it to the storage barn to make room for the piano. So I feel for you, and at least my kids can sorta help. Although they have unpacked one of the boxes I have packed twice.
