Just a quick update...
Settlement Friday went well and was free of any surprises. The move on Saturday was as painless as moving a lifetime's worth of stuff can be (HUGE thanks to my and Greg's parents and siblings, my cousin, my two friends and my dad's neighbor for helping us move. I can't even express what a giant help they were). We ended the day with pizza and beer and some cigars for the gentleman.
The rest of the weekend we spent unpacking, but we still have a LOT to do. I am back at work today, but Greg is home re-seeding and fertilizing our lawn since the seeding they did was pretty minimal. We spent a lot of money at Home Depot yesterday on lawn supplies. Hopefully it will pay off and we'll have some grass before winter. Greg is in charge of lawn duty, so I just let him do his thing :).
I am already starting to get used to the fact that this house is ours. It was a little weird the first few days, but I'm starting to feel more and more comfortable. We will have a ton of extra space for a while, but I'm sure we will fill it all eventually.
I plan to take my time with decorating and furniture-buying (I don't really have a choice since we both work full time and we have 5 weddings and 4 baby/wedding showers in the next two months), but there are a few things I hope to do right away: install a garage door opener, add cabinet hardware, and build a deck. The first two should be fairly easy. The third will be a learning experience, but I'm looking forward to it!
I will keep you all updated on our progress. Oh and I will post some mid-unpacking house photos shortly.
