Getting Settled

January 26th, 2024 at 06:37 pm

We arrived at our new home on Tuesday; today is Friday.  Since arriving, we have been in a whirlwind of activity.  We've had roofers come, make repairs, and go. These repairs were quoted months ago. Today we have some plumbers installing a new hot water heater.  They will be back on Monday to install a new bathtub and fix a leak.

Before arriving, I had ordered a new queen mattress which was delivered. We have been sleeping on that. We had no other furniture whatsoever upon arrival. Since then, I have purchased a kitchen table and chairs, a dresser, two wing chairs for the living room, and a washer/dryer set which will be delivered next week.  We still need quite a bit so more furniture shopping is in my immediate future.

In other news, I have learned that my son and daughter-in-law's expected baby is a boy.

Tomorrow night we are going to a 38 Special concert at a casino in a nearby town.

    I’m sure you have thought of this, but you can find great, well priced furniture at thrift stores.
    I’d be careful about anything with fabric, but dressers, tables, bookcases, desks, wood chairs are great.
    Also good for kitchen stuff and decor.

    Have fun!
