The new place is a duplex. Our portion is on the corner, so we have a little yard in the front and side. Best part about it, the landlord maintains it!!!! There are only two bedrooms so that means no scraproom...I am REALLY sad about this, but I am going to do my best to create a little scrap corner with a little desk and hopefully some storage...yes, Ikea Expedit I am talking to you! There is a TWO CAR GARAGE!!!! Can't tell you how excited I am about that detail. I rent a garage where I am now, and it is nice to be able to protect my car from the weather, but it is detached so it is across the lot from our place.
The packing has begun, but with that being said in a small apartment it doesn't take much for the place to look out of control. Trust me, it is approaching that point and FAST! If you don't believe me, take a look...
|Boxes and messes everywhere!|
|Blank walls are appearing everywhere....I HATE blank walls|
|A virtually empty bookshelf, more boxes..complete with a Jack photo bomb!|
I also almost forgot to mention that as of March 8th, I will be the only support person in my department at work. HOLY MOLY!!!! Definitely some OT potential, but also pretty crazy "I am going to lose my mind" potential. It is just the start to our busy season and it runs through June. I am going to do my best to keep my chin up and keep a good attitude, but honestly - I am kind of freaking out. There is a lot on my plate!
On a crafty note...I was determined to get my Chicago scrapbook done before I had to pack my scrap stuff up and with the exception of not knowing what to put in that little pocket on the front cover - I AM DONE!!! One down and three to go for 2013. Here is a peek at the cover page...
