our house, in the middle of the street

i'll try to get a real post put together, it's been hard because all my freetime is trying to get our house settled. i try to busy myself unpacking boxes whenever aidan is sleeping or happy playing by himself.
...
here is the house

come on in
oh wait, robby wont let me invite friends over until all the boxes are unpacked. (don't you like how you can see boxes in the window on the left???)
...
but aidan and i are enjoying the madness.
...
actually the living room is basically done. my goal is to have the main living scapes (where visitors visit) done by the end of next week. wish me luck! and i really don't want to post pictures until we get some window coverings going on. tomorrow we are going to ikea to see what we can see, rob's mom is going to babysit aidan, wish us luck!!

Wow, I didn't realize that you bought Grandma and Grandpa's old house. How does it feel to own your own home?

Good luck getting everything unpacked. I'm glad we didn't have unpacking to do with Joy being newly born. That would have been crazy!

no, we didn't buy grandma's house, we're actually house-sitting/renting however you want to describe it. (they didn't want the house just sitting here empty, so we're staying here and working on fixing it up)

unpacking with a baby is hard stuff, i don't recommend it.

Best of luck. Funny how you always feel like you should have tons of time during the day to get things done, yet somehow it never quite works out that way . . .

Oh my Goodness! Jodi - The house looks unbelievably better than the last time I saw it...I still can't believe what horrible conditions Grandma was living in!

yeah it made me sad, i wish nwe had cleaned and fixed it up while she still was living here.

Hello, I came across your blog from ldswomenblogs...how fun to have a new house! We are in the process of selling ours, and its such a nuisance, but it will be fun to get a new one!
