Elbow room!

(Laughed Daniel Boon.)

Tonight is the first night we're spending in the new house. We're moving from 850 square feet to probably nearly 2000 square feet. I'm utterly at a loss as to what to do with so much space. Seriously? People need this much space? What do they do with it all? I mean, why would you need more than two of something? (Not including underwear, towels, etc..) What am I to do with a hall closet?!? TWO hall closets, even? Two hall closets AND two full clothes closets in the master bedroom. One for Superman and an entirely separate but equally sized one for me. We don't have to share a 3-foot square closet anymore!!! The mind boggles.

The other thing that we're getting used to is central air and heat. I was asking Superman such questions as "where does the system get the air it circulates when just the fan is on?" and we're discussing what temperatures we want the AC/heat to come on at. Heck, after where we've lived I think we'll set the AC to come on at 80. That seems plenty cool to us. It's all relative. =)

So we're cleaning and unpacking. Superman will be making trips to and from our old house all during this week. We have an offer on our old house but the bank hasn't accepted it yet. I've heard it can take a long time, months even. I hope they do take it. Foreclosure would really stink.

I've never moved before so I'm trying to figure out how to best get this done. Our situation is a little unique in that we don't have to be in/out by a particular date. This allows me a little more time to clean as I go and take time to think about how I want things situated in the new place.

Both dogs are here and I believe they've already encountered a skunk. In the backyard. I can't tell if it still smells now but that might be because I'm so close to it. Anyhow we heard them barking up a storm and immediately after that a VERY strong skunk smell permeated the house. Our neighbors must be thrilled to have us. I hope the skunk (I'm presuming it was) is not one of several.


  1. Hurray! I hope you can create lots of good memories in your new house!

  2. Might skunk spray be helpful for either fleas or a sore hip/leg?!
