The staycation continues.
It has been a series of relaxing and stressful moments; successes and failures; satisfaction and disappointment; as we continue to tweak and modify the home decor and set up, shop for various items, replace and clean things as needed and discover new things about the house that need our immediate attention.
In between, we’ve managed to cook our first meal and entertain our first dinner guest, enjoy a couple of fires in our new fireplace, confirm our shower comfortably accommodates at least two grown men, and see two movies: one at home, which we hated (Cowboys & Aliens) and one out, which we loved (Wanderlust).
We’ve also gone out on small shop and search adventures. We’ve managed to avoid major furniture/appliance purchases so far, sticking to smaller purchases, such as lighting, pillows, curtains and small fixtures. We did have to buy a microwave and we purchased our first power tool: a drill.
In 2 weeks we will do our first major home upgrade: we have a company coming to remove the old oil tank in our basement and install central air. Still no Hot Tub, but we’re working on it.
Sadly, we had to cancel plans to travel and see friends this weekend, plans we made prior to knowing we’d be buying and moving into a house at this point and time. I’m not a fan of canceling on friends, but this was an unforeseen event and I hope we can make it up to them in the near future.
So that’s what’s been going on at Breen Acres. Still plan to do a picture tour soon but haven’t gotten to it yet.
Now I’m relaxing with a peanut butter & fluff sandwich and watching Malcolm in the Middle episodes on Netflix until I’m tired enough for my usual 3 hour nap between the hours of 12:00 am and 3:00 am.
