The Good News…
We finally moved into our house!!! Since our new mattress and our fridge had been delivered, we figured we had all of the bare essentials that we needed, so we loaded up the cats, the dog, and a few other essentials, and we headed over. After two months of waiting while I refinished the floors, and then we waited for things to be delivered, it’s been so good to finally be there.
The Bad News…
Our first night there, the temperature in Waco dipped into the 40s, and our house got COLD. I don’t think we’ve truly realized how good we had it at the condo. Our section of the building has six condos — three on bottom and three on top — and we’re the bottom middle condo. We seldom have to turn on our heat, even during the dead of winter, because we’re so well insulated by the other condos.
Now we’re in the house (and an old house at that!), and we don’t have heat yet. We have an ancient furnace that needs to be serviced before we can use it, so I guess we’ll need to get on that ASAP! In the meantime, my mom and sister have loaned us two portable heaters to use in the house on cold nights. And hopefully by next summer, we’ll have that furnace replaced with an updated HVAC system.
The Unbearable News…
We don’t have internet at the house, and we won’t for a week-and-a-half. *GASP* And when Matt told the Time Warner people that I’m a full-time blogger and website designer, and that I really needed internet NOW, they were completely unsympathetic. Can you believe that? 😀 We never quite realize how dependent we are on the internet until it’s gone.
So anyway, I hope to pop in here a couple of time between now and then while I’m over here at the condo, but I can’t promise anything. My time here is supposed to be spent getting this place ready to put on the market, so I probably shouldn’t be on my computer too much. But hopefully that will mean that I’ll have lots to share with y’all when we finally do get internet!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
