But here are some moving and house updates, since that's what's up.
Our big move was on Sunday, Oct. 27th.
We hired some local college football players to just do the heavy lifting, and B drove the Uhaul.
The whole move took less than 3 hours! Hooray for Big Guys. (No, seriously, that's the name of their company.)
Then it looked like this for almost a week:
And now it looks like this:
We need to figure out the 'command center' table situation (on the left), since that's actually my sewing table. My in-laws have a skinnier table that is going to go there when they can bring it up. I'm also going to get a bulletin board and some desk organizing things. The island is still a mess and we're still finding 'homes' for stuff. (My purse actually has a new home, as we put some hooks up in the hallway.)
We will be changing out the lighting fixtures soon. I'll have a 'totally finished' after picture one of these days.
We did, however, switch out all the knobs already.

As much as I'm still not a fan that our master bedroom faces the street (almost didn't look at this house because of it), I'm in love with the accent wall we did in there. (And by "we," I mean the guy we paid to do it, along with the other tall areas of the house.)
The dining room is the only room in the house trimmed out in white, and it was previously a dark maroonish red. For whatever wacky reason, it was done in a matte paint, and I think it was sprayed on. It was in bad shape, and it definitely needed actual primer and not that combo stuff we used in the other rooms.

After picture, mostly. Still needs a new light fixture and maybe some new curtains.
Oh, it also needs furniture, since we have no big dining table or whatever.
So far, this house is a constant (expensive) project. I want it to just be "done" but that involves buying a lot of furniture and having more offspring or something.
I don't know a good way to end this post so here is a picture of our porch when it a few days ago. I don't think I've witnessed snow this early in the season before, but it is only my second year in Indiana. I have much to learn.
