First, some quick Updates: Patrick met with the claims guy from the furniture store the Monday after the incident. He definitely saw the HUGE scratch in the master bedroom floor. And didn’t argue at all about whether or not the delivery guys put it there. And, he asked Patrick what it would take to make … More Moving in, + 2 Weeks.
We don’t own the Hadley house anymore. We’re going to miss the Oakwood neighborhood. It’s a great place to live and it’s a great house. We did go back to the house one last time right before heading to closing. That was a little retrospective … a lot of stuff happened in our lives in … More First House, Finale.
This post is just mostly for me. We’ve put a lot into our first house. And, our new house is not the same style at all. Which is good. I’m ready for a change. And the new house will allow us to incorporate some pieces and spaces we couldn’t at our first house. But, I … More #favoritethings from our #firsthouse.

Let’s continue … So, Friday night? After we finished working ALL week on the house and felt like it was a mad rush to the finish? We left Cincinnati, headed home, and walked to the Club for food & drinks. It was a nice treat. It’s been more than a few weeks since we’ve … More Hard Stop.
So, we put a final stop date for renovating the new house as Sunday, April 16. That leaves us with 2 full weeks to actually move. And, really, the hard stop for actual house renovations was Saturday, April 15 … because on Sunday we needed to clean – ALL DAY. So, this week, we chugged … More Mad Rush.
So, it seems like we just can’t catch a break with this house. For all the progress we make, it seems like someone else comes in and moves it all a few steps back. Very short version: We bought a new bed, and I cleaned the master bedroom floors … just in time for them … More One thing, and now another.
I took vacation on Monday & Tuesday this week. I used it to work on the house. I tried to warn you that this wasn’t a real vacation (see that question mark in the title???).
