So, we have pictures on the walls in the living room/kitchen (but nowhere else). I spent a pleasant 45 minutes after the kids went to bed last night polishing my dishwasher and mopping my new floor (it's weird to love cleaning so much; I know this). Our grass is growing in like cute little green peach fuzz (in fact, sitting on the deck right now, I run the risk of being totally soaked whenever the sprinklers decide to come on, but that is a risk I am willing to take for some chirping birds and crickets and rising sun).
We're settling in.
The kids are good for the most part. Jack is totally fine, sleeps late, runs downstairs to play by himself. Harry, though, is awake by 5:43 everyday and is scared to be in another room from us, let alone another floor of the house.
This house is loud, too, and our new appliances make all sorts of strange grunting and rooting and beeping noises, which freak him out.
Ben conquered a tiny ant problem we noticed the day we moved in.
Come to think of it, Jack has peed his pants a lot.
Both kids love the park and being able to play outside whenever they want, and they watch maybe 20 minutes of TV a day, as opposed to hours and hours and hours like they used to.
We finally stopped eating at restaurants for every meal (seriously, we ate out so much I never want Chipotle or Noodles or Panera again) and actually went to the grocery store and bought real food again.
Weeds and the Big C started, and we managed to watch them even with our one DVR and one digital box.
I think we're going to like it here.
