Here We Go

Last week was my much anticipated Annual Spring Clean. I shipped Thing One and Thing Two up to Grandma Cheryl's and my mom and I tackled the house. "The List" Closets were organized, drawers were cleaned out, we found all sorts of things behind the washerthatihate...
...the garage is now walk-through-able again and I breathed a big sigh of relief.
Then. Since we had no kiddos, Josh and I went on a date. And he drove me by a house we like. And then by a house I like. And then we did this. Some hot dates result in pregancy, but ours just ended up with a pole in my yard. Anybody? This meant that my lovely fridge would have to lose it's ornamentation. If you know me at all, you know how I adore this fridge and all of the people that we love being on it. I think this was the hardest part so far, so I did it first. Band-Aid. Ripped. Kate asked if we got a new fridge. The loft got packed up too. And even though most of it (like 8 boxes) were Josh's, I found some merry glee in finally finding my old 90's cds!!! Queen! I found you! Oh, Avalon - we meet again! I even introduced Miles to Will Smith, but there were mixed reactions. Our renting neighbors were so devastated that we were leaving that they tried to sabatoge us by parking this montrocity in their yard.
So, as if our life hasn't flipped right upside down enough this year, we thought we might as well change everything all at once. Hmmm... maybe we should just get pregnant too?

I love every bit of this. I feel like I'm right there with you in that house. I love your fridge! Move here.

where are you moving to?

Kristin said...

Your house looks great! I talked to Aubrey and Montana on skype the other night and they filled me in on our potential new digs. Give me a call sometime! Was that a pregnancy announcement???

Kristin said...

I meant to say on "your" potential new digs - don't worry, I am not moving in with you :)

Rachel said...

Where are ya'll moving? Just a different house, right?!?! Plus, I'd love having that dumpster nearby. I'd be cleaning like crazy and using it instead of my own trash.

Love the lists, too.

Lookin' good!

What? I wasn't called for the spring cleaning? Can't wait to have you in the 'hood ... then you can use the parks and be totally legal :) Um ... as for the hot date and getting pregnant? Perhaps the pole could be more fun? Just needs a bit of imagination?? (Did that just come out of my mouth? What is going on??)

Jen said...

I'm scared of your list...and your pole.

Pole in the yard...HA!

House looks great. Can't wait to have you in our neck of the woods.

You know you want another baby. A bigger house means more baby space. :-)

I can't believe that with the kids away you cleaned. That would be the last thing on my mind. But good for you. hope your house sales soon.

Klhark said...

Carrie - I personally invite you to cleaning hear as I am salivating at Mikele's super clean digs!!

Robyn said...

I'm going to venture out there and say that perhaps having a baby is easier than selling a house around here right now. Just my two cents ;) Your house does look so clean, who wouldn't want it???

Jenny said...

I vote that you have triplets, just like your cousin (?).
