After the nice break that was our trip to San Francisco, the past two days have been back to business.
Tuesday began with the delivery of our new TV and stand from Fry's, which I spent the next few hours assembling. While it wasn't very fun to build, the end product looks great. I then began my second assembly of the day, the wine tower. It was significantly easier to put together, and it also turned out nicely.
After that we took a trip to Bed, Bath, & Beyond and Wal-Mart to pick up cleaning supplies and various necessary everyday household items (of which there are thousands). Tons of fun, lemme tell ya...
Dinner was at Chipotle, which is a burrito/taco restaurant similar to Moe's. We were both pretty hungry, so it was extra delicious.
After dinner we browsed TJ Maxx/Homegoods, and then went in search of a reasonably priced stainless steel trash can. We found one at our third stop, Target, although it's not quite as large as we might have liked. We then called it a night.
Today was another early day, and it was also a long one.
The movers arrived with our stuff at around 8 this morning, and they wasted no time in getting the truck unloaded. Everything was off the truck and inside by around 11:30. Well, I say everything, but what I mean is everything but the desk (my desk from Nashville) and bookcase (Paige's ladder bookcase from upstairs), which were destroyed in transit. Apparently we'll be compensated for them, so we'll see how that goes (we weren't particularly attached to either, so it isn't all bad). Otherwise everything seems to be in good shape, although the packing crew did pack a few boxes quite oddly and label them incorrectly.
We've been unpacking the kitchen and living room stuff since the first box came off the truck, and Paige is still at it in the kitchen (working on the Christmas stuff now). We haven't really even touched our clothes or any of the bedroom boxes, so we're hoping to get to them tomorrow. We know that the unpacking process will take some time, but neither of us are particularly patient right now.
Sorry for the lack of enthusiasm in this post, but Paige and I are both exhausted. The blog will pick back up a bit once we get some of the house stuff settled, and we'll also probably be in much perkier moods :)
