Ok, so we have completely moved in... finally! What awesome fun with a teething child with a cold, who then passes that cold on to the rest of us. Hooray! We got the keys a few week earlier than when we planned to move the big stuff, so it only took us a few days to settle in. They have been a few quite tumultuous and strange days, but we are in and happy. Ruby is ecstatic with the new house and wakes every morning with a (literally) big "YAY! Hi House!", and DrMr and I are happy that her 5:15am starts have seemed to have settled down. UGH.
Things we like:
New beds and bedding. After sleeping on a shitty bed for several years, we finally caved and bought a new bed suite and fancy mattress and I could cry every night when I go to bed for the joy of it. AHHHHHH. SO COMFY.
A house with a bath FINALLY. We only had a baby bath still for Rubes in the old house, so she is well pleased. Actually every day is almost like Christmas (for the joy and anticipation) for her as I don't think I have ever told you HOW obsessed she is with baths. She is also obsessed with using her full name all day long - "that's Ruby Rock's bath... Ruby Rock needs a drink"... etc. Cute and crazy all at once.
Both DrMr and I (for the first time) have separate working spaces that reflect our personal working styles and tastes....
HARD TO PICK WHOS IS WHO... I KNOW.
I bought a new mac laptop and a new camera recently, very happy. I am anticipating better quality photos for GL. If not, then I have obviously got to find something else to blame, because as it stands like with most things, I am a MAGNIFICENT photographer.
Actually my main aim for the next few weeks is to actually read the manual and figure out how to use it. Pictures are much nicer, that I can tell.
Other than that, we have been mostly painting (Wuby Wock is obsessed), riding our bikes in the big park across the road and just hanging out and settling in. Life is good. Oh, so I also decided not to take the new job I was offered, I was feeling a whole heap of anxiety about it and it was a lot of change for all of us with not much reward. Feel really good about the decision.
Right now, it's nap time ... for Rubes AND me. Have a good weekend!
