Well, me and the girls have been sick for over a week now. We all got the flu, and it was bad. All last week we layed in the livingroom together feeling miserable. It was pathetic. We are almost better now– mostly just a bad cough and stuffy nose.
The pictures below do not at all represent what our livingroom looked like while we were all sprawled out across the floor and sofa with Kleenex and old mugs of tea everywhere. I took these before we got sick when I was going to blog about my quick livingroom “makeover” that took place in one night.
These are the lovely sofas (above) that I bought on eBay a few months before we moved here for law school. They were brand new when I got them (for a measly 200 bucks I might add) — the person selling them just didn’t think they matched anything in their house. I sold them on craigslist.com one night the other week, rolled up the area rug, brought the little sofa and chair out of the kitchen (remember our home cafe?), pulled the area rug out that was rolled up in the office closet, and voila!
I have never had this much time to prepare for a move in my life. I’m usually frantically throwing things in boxes with my head spinning in circles. It’s been nice to be able to go through stuff slowly, and sell or give away the things we don’t want to move.
After next week (which will be Spring Break), M will have approximately 2 months left before he graduates, and then we will move at the end of May. I don’t know where we are moving to– that all depends on where he gets a job, but our lease is up on May 31st, so that is when we move. I think we may have scrapped the idea of getting an Airstream (but not entirely). It seems it would be more difficult for us to get any good loan rates for just property in comparison to buying a house. We’ll see what happens.
