What a weekend this has been! After thinking we were going to be moving the beginning of April, I have had quite a bit of my packing done since March. However, that did not make the experience any easier or any more enjoyable!!
Friday finally came and seven Palmer boys all told me to stand back as they took trip after trip of moving the heavy furniture (not sure why my bedroom set has to be solid oak) and all the boxes. By the end of the night, our old place looked almost empty. Not to be deceived though, the 'little' items ending up taking Kyle and I two days, a trip to goodwill, and sore feet. Around 4:30pm today, Sunday, we finally had everything out of our old apartment and cars and into our new place.
Although our new place looks like a tornado went through, I was able at least to get the closet and kitchen mostly put away. Clara is having a blast jumping in and out of boxes and getting herself stuck in the smallest of spaces. Kyle and I even managed to get out for a bit on Saturday night to enjoy Santa Clara's Red and White Gala. Not sure how I found a dress I wore for Homecoming in high school and how we managed to pull it off, but it was nice to dress up, even if it was just for a short while.
Once everything is put away, I'll have to photograph our new place. I thought I would have lots of extra room with a whole extra bedroom and bathroom, but it looks like we will fill it up all the same! We are getting ready for a busy next couple of weekends and can't wait to enjoy them.
