Say goodbye to our darling Craftsman house, which we rented for a year. It helped us fall in love with Cville and had the best front porch a girl could ask for –
I cleaned for hours as FAST AS I COULD! My goal was to not have to return after the moving truck left. I made it just in time!! Every room was wiped, swept, vacuumed and steam-mopped.
Hello new empty, freshly painted by fantastic Justin the painter new house!!
Doors will be painted white tomorrow!
Justin’s family owns the Jimmy Johns here in Cville and he brought us lunch!!
I had a veggie + cheese sub – lots of veggies and cheese!
Salt and vinegar on the side
Gobble gobble I was starved!!!
Highlight of my day: COMCAST CAME!! Within their time period. And we have internet!!
Lowlight of my day: washing 1,000 dishes.
Karen has convinced me that if a dish goes in a box, a roach poops on it. She washed every single dish of hers when she moved and I decided it would sure feel clean to do the same. Don’t think I’m gross for not doing that in the past! Wrapping paper is clean, right!?
I own too many bowls!
But I have never owned a pot rack!!
Our empty house was soon a mess. A HUGE mess.
–> finished basement!!
–> Future brewery!!

I spent many nights worrying that the dining room table wouldn’t fit. Turns out it fits like a glove!
Other than the kitchen, Seamane came over to help with the move and we put together the master BR – so I can rest later tonight. It’s on its way to being so cozy!
Future guest room – to be painted!
Would it surprise you to hear that I had the kitchen put together enough to make dinner? I made the dinner I was supposed to make last night!

Matt said the clem-cashew butter on the noodles was the best nutty noodle sauce he’s ever had.
It was really really good. Slightly sweet, slightly orange and very creamy!
I was less tired and sore when I ran my half marathon last year. This move has totally wiped my out. My feet can barely stand and I’m so thirsty! Perhaps I should have been drinking Gatorade during my marathon of a day : )
Can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow!!
