That one time, when we bought a house and I was in love with it, but it felt like a 40 pound newborn that I couldn’t figure out how to get a diaper on it?
I can’t wrap my head around why it is so hard for me to get a grip on the things that need to be done. It’s a house. 4 walls, just like I had before, only a little bigger. Why can’t I finish unpacking?
UGH. I thought for inspiration I’d share with you the photos of our house, before the previous owner took all of his amazing stuff out of it. I use these photos as inspiration to get my butt in gear and finish unpacking this place. I’ll show you progress photos in a bit and you can keep me honest about the fact that we’ve hung nothing on the walls and therefore all of these prints just live on the floor.
Facing the other direction on the first floor. He used it as an office, because he was cool enough to have a home office. Everyone knows I can’t think at home, so there’s no need to keep up the pretense that I might.
So he didn’t have them both set up as bedrooms. We know a lot of vagrants, so we are making these both bedrooms. As you can see, quarters are tight, so if you think you’re coming to our house for a private getaway, be prepared for me to hear your pillow talk.
Anyway, that’s her. She’s ours. So now I need to figure out how to take care of her. I’ll keep you posted on if we can live up to this guys’ design ability or if our house becomes one of those A&E specials about the end of the world and brick being overrun with vines and apes taking over.
