Settling in

We are getting settled in!

I think Arthur’s not as stoked about the new house as I am.  He’s been the king of bodily functions here.  We’ve stayed here two nights and I’ve already cleaned up potty in the floor when I came home from work yesterday and this morning when I came upstairs from making coffee he had thrown up all over my bed.  Fun times.  It has, however, made me stoked that I chose a new place that was all hardwood floors and has a big-girl washer and dryer.  So cleanup has been a piece of cake.

I’m having the usual moving in headaches. 

*Four long phone calls to a certain cable company where they still haven’t gotten it right, but at least we now have a plan and I’m now getting free movie channels. 

*The movers put my bed together wrong.  I may or may not have cried about it, it made me so mad (because I had paid them to do it and I couldn’t fix it myself).  But my dad fixed it, and we didn’t even have to have an embarrassing conversation about it this time (Last time, when he was putting it together, he shakes it from the foot of the bed and says, “It still rattles a little bit, did it before?”  I was like “Oh, yeah, we were always worried we were gonna break it.”  At which point we both blush and I realize I’ve said WAY too much to my DAD!)

*It already feels like I’ve spent one million dollars at Target/Home Depot/Bed Bath and Beyond and I still have yet to unpack half of the house and uncover whatever else needs to be put away/organized. 

The good news is, I have slept here two nights in a row, and I’m so exhausted from all the moving stuff that getting to sleep has not been an issue, and staying asleep was an issue the first night but last night I slept for like 5 hours in a row, and I can’t tell you the last time that happened!  Yay!


  1. Oh, this made me laugh SO HARD! Good luck on all the unpacking and fitting yourself into this new and fun place. Gross on the potty and puke (I'm not enough of a dog person, and that would about end me), but yay on the easy clean up! Such fun.

  2. 5 hours of sleep - yes!!! Hopefully Arthur will adjust soon and you both will sleep soundly together. And again, I am so excited to see what you've done with your adorable doll house!
