Moving To Louisville KY Part 1

Well HELLO!!! Did you miss me at ALL? Well I’ve missed hearing from you guys that’s for sure! As you may (or may not) know that our family is in the process of moving to Louisville, KY. Now I say process because my husband has been here a month, but our youngest daughter and I have only been here about 2 weeks, but we still have no furniture. We closed on our KY house last Friday and have decided to “camp out” in it until our furniture arrives. While this may not seem appealing to some of you, it is far better than being in a cramped not-so-private hotel suite. We bought a couple of air mattresses, sheets, and essentials to get us through until we can get our stuff from the Richmond house, which will be the week after labor day, but not soon enough!

This is real life people… this is our LOVELY air mattress setup in our bedroom…

but don’t feel too sorry for me because we just got our new Sleep Number bed delivered today! While it is still on the floor at least it is far more comfortable than our other mattress or our lovely air bed… even though I’m essentially trading one air mattress for another I can guarantee the Sleep Number mattress will surpass the other mattresses in every way!

On a totally different note I’d like to share the lovely view of our backyard from the deck this morning.

Don’t be fooled by the pretty picture though, what appears to be grass is really a weed grass mixture. The sprinkler system for this house had been broken for some time it seems… it had to be repaired so I could water everything, the ground and borders were very dry and everything had the general look of a yard that hadn’t been loved in a while.

Like this lovely “natural” patch, great trees in this area, the weeds are taller than me though!

Another area in the back with 5 ft. plus tall weeds. I’m going to have a landscape company cut all of this stuff down this fall… I would just be too much for me, both of these overgrown areas are about the size of a community swimming pool!

However, since I can’t do much in the house (no tools) I have been pulling and spraying weeds in the borders around the house every morning. Apparently I was going to town on some Poison Oak vines and didn’t know it until the super nice irrigation guy pointed it out to me… nice right?! It is ALL over the place… I’m utilizing some Roundup Poison Ivy killer for the rest of the stuff!

I know… I know… “leaves of 3 let it be” right?

Well I’m heading back home next week to pack and move while my Mom stays in KY and takes care of Brie, her school started last week! I’m NOT looking forward to packing, but it sure would be nice to have some real furniture in the new house.

I also have a list of things to do in the new house a MILE long and I’m a little overwhelmed about that, but I’m trying to remember my own advice and just take one room at a time… the problem is where to start?!

Hope you guys stay tuned for more posts… I’ll probably be all over the place with projects but it’ll be an adventure!

Until next time…

About Susan Sease

Hi, my name is Susan and I’m a furniture hoarder… whew, now that I have said that I feel so much better! Anyway, I started this whole furniture refinishing and blogging business in 2011 and I have LOVED every minute of it! It’s not “easy” by any means but it allows me to utilize my creative side and meet lots of wonderful people… it is seriously my dream occupation! I have been refinishing furniture for myself for over 20 years but never gave any thought to doing this for others until my kids had gotten to the point that they didn’t need me as much… sad but true! So now I’m a stay at home mom and wife who has decided that fixing up and painting furniture is so much more rewarding than vacuuming and grocery shopping… my house is never quite as clean as I would like for it to be and there is furniture everywhere… but I couldn’t be happier! I hope you can come along on this journey with me!

    Sounds like you’ll have enough projects to keep you busy for a good long time! Good luck with the move. It will feel like home once you get to sleep in your own bed again!

    • Thanks Deb! I also have some hard core briar like weeds that are killing me too… I hate weeding but I hate looking at weeds even more! By the way I’m having a tough time finding good prices on fixer upper furniture here… Bummer! Maybe I just need to find the right places again!?
