(Bowie's song always gets stuck in my head when I want to use the word changes... anyone else?)

Happy to report Jeff and I are in our new home. (Home- yes, it feels like it already.) And, we love it. We did discover a couple of issues that we could only discover while moving:

a. Our bed didn't fit down the stairs.

We bought an older home (built during World War II), so our box frame won't make it down the narrow stair case. Oops. Now, we have to buy all new bedroom furniture. (I think Jeff's secretly excited about this.)

b. We just purchased a brand new front-loading washer and dryer. However, our dryer needs to be a gas hook-up, and we have electric. Another oops.

c. Our cute dining table doesn't match our new kitchen. Have to buy a new table. (Eventually, as this is not a priority. But, it actually is quite apparent that it does not match.)

d. In between moving, hauling boxes in and out, putting everything in its new place, I really hurt my back. I'm talking- I-walk-like-an-elderly-person-back-problem. And, it really, really hurts.

e. This is not good, as it's my bestest friends wedding- tomorrow! And, I need to be able to attend to her every needful thing.

f. I'm also getting a cold.

g. I think that's it.

Ah life and all it's ch-changes... good changes, of course. (If only my body would cooperate!)

I hope you didn't move your piano all by yourself. You poor back. Hope it is feeling better now. I can't wait to see the inside of your new place! Beau and I couldn't fit our couches in the basement of our first home so we ended up having to buy 2 love seats!
