Getting Settled

We have spent the entire weekend getting settled. But in all reality, everything about this out-of-state move sucked. We spent a lot of money on a full-service move. Our furniture was ruined in our storage unit due to moisture which caused mold. So we went out Sunday and bought new furniture, from Ashley Furniture Home Store. We ended up with two couches and an 11 piece dining room set (the package we got came with two extra chairs and the leaf to expand the table). So if you are in the market for new furniture and near Leesburg, VA head on over to the Ashley Furniture Store and see George, he was phenomenal. The washer we had in storage, is still in our storage unit so we don’t know if it has any mold issues. So we just bought a new one because our 4-year-old is highly allergic to mold. We also had to have a whole new water softening/ purification system put in the old system wasn’t doing anything at all. So that was another large expense that we weren’t expecting.

This house is only our starter home and we’ve put a lot of money into it already. We may sell it in a few years as our kids grow and as Kevin gets more time with his job. He’s only been there about 8 months. Our goal is to have a custom home built.

Life is just crazy hectic right now. With the kids home for the summer, we’re trying to find things to do that all of them can participate in. We’ve found that all the kids enjoy shooting Kevin’s BB Gun and Connor’s airsoft gun. Of course, we’re teaching them proper gun safety, even the littlest ones. Not only that but Kevin and I are the ones that hold the guns for the youngest two. Therefore, they aren’t even in control of the gun.

The last few days have been rather boring. Filled with chores, cleaning, grocery shopping and solving problems. So hopefully, next week will be pretty calm because Kevin leaves for Texas on Monday. It is going to be a challenging week without my love here. We sure are going to miss him.

Well, I need to go get some things done. I need to find all the kitchen boxes that are in the garage, then I need to wash all the dishes. Hopefully, the kids will give me the opportunity to really get something done today.
