In our current home, that is.
I haven’t updated on the progress of our new house in a while because there hasn’t been too much exciting happening for the past couple months. The finisher has just finished installing baseboards, interior doors and closet shelving and the glass panels have been installed in the railing. There is progress being made, but it is a bit slower then we had hoped and it is looking like we will get possession mid January.
I was REALLY hoping to be in before Christmas. We packed up all the Christmas stuff nicely last year to have it ready to move. I had visions of Christmas in the new house and having my little guy write a letter to Santa telling him the new address to bring his toys to. I was planning to buy the kids a play kitchen because we’d now have room for it, but I think it might wait now since it will just be one more big item to move.
Now I am faced with the dilemma as to whether or not it is worth the effort to haul out all the Christmas stuff and then repack it all again to be moved a few weeks after. I am sure we’ll be busy with all kinds of other packing and preparing for the move over Christmas so I really think the best solution will be to keep Christmas pretty low key in our house this year. This will be a challenge for me.
I can’t say that I am not disappointed, but I do know this really isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things. We still have a roof over our heads. We will still have Christmas. And most important we will all be together as a family. Plus this just means I will have plenty of time to prepare for next year and go all out for our first Christmas at the new house.
