Home Sweet Home

Thank the Gods, we had a painless move into our house over the weekend. I was really dreading it, because the last time we moved, it was like we were babysitting grizzly bears who manhandled our stuff. We could only watch in horror as they broke our precious belongings, then charged us a ton of cash for the experience. M. says it was like babysitting convicts, but we've had convict movers before, and they were fabulous.

We've just been unpacking boxes and trying to get settled. I'm navigating a new train line (I used to be a Red Line girl, now I'm Purple.) As I was unpacking the bathroom, I was getting a bit frustrated, because everything wasn't fitting, and then I remembered, "OMG! I have a whole OTHER bathroom!" Awesome. Parking the car in the garage and bringing in groceries was a dream. You know what I do if I'm hot or cold? I just adjust the thermostat! Incredible. I've never known such luxuries.

Oh, your house is so nice. Look at the greenery and the tree in front!!! I bet it is luxurious. Can't wait to see it in person.

Actually, that's the listing photo - so I guess it's from last summer. The woman who lived here before us was a gardener, and I believe most things are perennial. We'll see if we're any good at gardening or if we end up killing all her hard work!
