This is what the back of a Uhaul truck looks like alongside I-5, for an hour. Don't be jealous!
The baby wouldn't have anything to do with staying in a Uhaul truck for an hour, so Levi took him outside to explore. All the way staying in his arms, since the freeway wasn't very far away.
This is Abram sitting beside me, in the overfull capacity of our suburban, at the Uhaul dealership. Are you seeing a theme here?
This is what the view was outside our suburban windshield, while sitting at the Uhaul dealership for 2 hours.
Just in case you couldn't read between the lines, our Uhaul truck broke down on Interstate 5. It was a glorious rainy day, with five kids....lol After they replaced the fuel pump and the ignition we were off and running again. It was a bit of crisis, since we needed to be down at the rental office to sign our lease by 4pm, and it was still over 2 hours of traveling time ahead of us, and we didn't know when Uhaul would get done with our truck.
So as to not keep you all in suspense, we arrived at the rental agency at 3:45pm. Whew!
Since we have arrived, Friday, we have been busy unloading three vehicles, and beginning to unpack. We have made some serious progress, and the house is starting to feel more like our home. I really love it! The space for everything is delicious!! I just don't know what I may do with myself!
I have had my few trips to Starbucks since we've been here, which has made me abundantly happy. In fact, yesterday morning, I was overly exhausted from all the moving so I asked River he would mind running up to the Starbucks, that is 2 miles away (yeah, you heard me right....2 MILES.....I'm feeling a wee bit spoiled!) to get me a venti nonfat triple shot mocha. He quickly said yes (anything to get him out and about). So within 15 minutes I had a gigantoooooor sized mocha in my sweaty little hands, and I drank that smooth concoction with all the appreciation of someone that had been stranded on a deserted island, could muster.....and oh yeah my nose itched like nobodies business, but it was a price I was willing to pay! lol
Here is a couple pictures of the downstairs rooms that I have already put together. Nevermind the upstairs, we are still swimming in boxes there.
I still want to get a big picture to hang above the mantle, but for now this will do. I fell in love with this black wooden "Blessings" sign, and then put family pictures all about. I thought that would be fitting.
We had to buy a little round table to fit into the kitchen nook. I also began to hang all my coffee stuff on the walls. The wall colors in this house make me very happy.
I will take more pictures later, but for now you get the idea, right?
