So I know most of you have been following our house building process on Faceboook. It's been an awesome ride, and a lot of fun. Things have been going (mostly!) pretty smoothly, and hasn't caused any real inconvenience to us.
My poor Nana, who lives on the property also, has been putting up with the noise and people and construction happening in her front yard, but we've been blissfully oblivious over at our house. Work gets done during the day, and we go over in the evening to check the progress, and things have almost magically happened since the night before!
Now though, we are gearing up to move the trailer over to meet up with the new addition. And I'm needing to remind myself about it being "fun" a lot these days. I'm mostly hitting the "what the *%#$ were we thinking!?" phase. We have to move our little family out of our trailer for about 10 days while my hubby gets it ready to move, does the move, and then gets things hooked back up and safely functioning and livable for us all over at our new location.
We had planned on doing the move at the end if the month, after the drywall was complete, but we are fast tracking it and aiming for the middle of the month instead now.
My Nana is going on vacation for 10 days, and has graciously offered us her home to stay in while she's away. It solves the problem of " where the heck are we going to go!?" while the move is happening, and makes complete sense seeing as we will now be living side by side. This allows us to be right there working on things that need to be done.
Right now though, I'm looking around our house, trying to figure out what needs to be moved out, packed up, come down, be braced, etc before we move the trailer over. It's forcing me to do a bit of a purge, which is always a good thing! And I know it will be worth it once we are over there. But for now, all I'm thinking about is the drywall dusty, painty, floor laying, deck building, sawdust infested mess that we will be living in for the next couple months! With two small girls! But this is fun, right!? And it will be worth it in the end. That, I can say with confidence.
So for now, I will sit on the couch with this sweet sleeping baby on my lap, while my big girl naps, and look at paint samples that will go with our beautiful new flooring and furniture! And I will ignore the fact that there are a few weeks of crazy chaos ahead, and I will focus only on the end goal. Because this is fun, and will totally be worth it.
Love and hugs.
