Category Archives: A New House

Hi there!

We’re back online. It took a bit longer than expected, but otherwise things are going great.

John’s been working long, crazy hours this last week on a project that might just make national headlines. He’s been up at 6am, at work by 8am and although home at 4pm or so . . . he’s been online working from 10pm-2am. Crazy. Today he is sleeping.

I’ve been unpacking. (Are you surprised?) So far we’ve got the living/dining area done, the garage, the library will be finished today, and the bedroom. Since we have a painter coming in to do the guest bedroom and offices, we’re not unpacking those until this weekend. (When he’ll be finished.)

Sasha likes the new place. We put her in Soos Creek for a few days while we moved and got some things done on Sunday and Monday. It was the best idea. She was nervous about all the boxes and such before we left, and a little weirded out by everything in the new place, but she’s adapted beautifully.

I’ll post some pics. For now, here’s one of our little girl that a friend took back in May and recently shared with us.

Going Dark

This is it until we’re in the new place, and have Internet access again. Here’s hoping the move goes well.

We’re not completely packed, but we’ve run out of room to stack boxes. So I’ll be packing the kitchen and closets while the movers do their thing. After J. drops off Sasha at Soos Creek Kennels, he will be ferrying artwork and other precious items up to the new place.

It’s finally happening. After months of prep and work, its finally here.

Until the next time . . .


I am now the proud, poor, owner of two domiciles. I owe so much money to large institutions I am more than a little freaked out.

I am so grateful for J. and his calm calm calm demeanor.

I kind of feel like this:

(and yes, I am sure I will feel happy, excited, and all of that good stuff soon.)


One of the fun things one does with a new-built house is the walk-through. This is your chance to be as nit-picky as you want. About everything.

We noted slightly askew wall plates and outlets. A minor scuff on the wall. A bit of smutz on the windowsill . . . all of it.

The place looks amazing.

Here’s what the hardwood floors really look like:
