A PCS Story --2020-- Part 2

Leaving off from Part 1, in which we packed up the furniture and drove across part of the country...

These are scenes minus furniture in our new house...Wells and I spent 3(?) days here without anything, really. It was a very long 3 days. Thankfully, this kid is a champion napper at this point in time, even in the pack-and-play, which is insane. I'm talking 3 hour naps. Whatever. I'll take it. He's usually in bed by 8pm and up at 6am but, with a 3 hour nap, that schedule works just fine for me. 

This is a smattering of randomness, just so I can share what last week was actually like for me. The pictures aren't great, but this is what I was doing last week while I definitely wasn't blogging...Enjoy. 

Unloading the car. 

Enjoying his new surroundings. Tile + carpet > wood floors. 110%

Watching the landlord cut the grass. "Tra-TOR!!!!"

The true half-bath I've been pining for these last 18 months. 

My orchids have a new home. 

Confession: I love big empty spaces in houses. I adore them. I used to do this all the time: sit on the floor of our big empty extra living room in Alaska and read books. I read two books this way last week. It was delightful. After 18 months of being cramped in Pittsburgh, I can breathe again. 

Going for a walk and insisting I carry him. It was too hot for this. 

Most of last week was just spent sorting through boxes, looking for things I couldn't find. 

How Wells ate all of his meals last week. 

I went to a drive-thru coffee shop 3 days in a row, which is new for me; I rarely go out for coffee. But I had no coffeepot and I hold some very strong opinions about coffee (i.e. decaf is not coffee). So, I was more than thrilled when Scott brought the Keurig so I could go back to my 2+ cups a day. 

We ordered Mexican from a local place on Friday (Saturday? I don't remember). So good. This was poblano and chicken in a cream sauce? I put rice on top.

Scout loves moving blankets/furniture pads.

Why is it so hard to find a spot for the Tupperware? I never can quite get this right. 

Unpacking the new lawnmower.
