The Moving Blues...

Moving sucks.  There, I said it.  Don't get me wrong, we are thrilled to be in our new home.  But the actual moving process is not enjoyable.  At all.

Now that we are in the new house, we are surrounded by boxes and slowly trying to unpack and settle in.  Since Ledger has been so unsettled lately, we started with his bedroom.  It was pink and green with "princess" written on the wall when we moved in, so it made the priority list!  We decided to stay with the sports theme he had previously and matched some primary colors to his bedspread.  I love the way it turned out!!

That moment of truth when the tape comes off...  PHEW -- it looks great!

The finished project.
We have had some other little fix-its around the house too.  We applied some privacy film to a few windows that aren't convenient to have curtains on -- small windows in the garage and laundry room.  We liked the way it looked so much that we also covered the glass on the back door.  We still get the benefit of natural sunlight but we can also wander around half-clothed without giving our neighbors a show. :)

And, of course, we are trying to unpack and put things away which means that clutter and trash just seem to multiply.  Our living room and kitchen are mostly unpacked, but because it's our main living space, it is usually trashed.  So I have spent some time cleaning to try to make our home livable and presentable.

I know that the more work we do, the more like "home" this house will feel.  I am looking forward to that point when there are no more boxes to unpack... but that is pretty far away at this point... :)
