This is a few weeks late, I know. This move kinda kicked our butts for the first little while. But we're settling in!
We painted the house on the Friday/Saturday before we moved in. And we learned that there are a few key things to have on hand when painting an entire house in a day and a half:
1. junk food. mostly to keep the kids occupied. go ahead and judge! it saved us!
2. Friends who show up unexpectedly and then drop all their plans for the rest of the day to keep on painting until it's all finished.
3. Did you know that there are two Round Table Pizzas in Burbank? TWO! You don't want to know how much money we spent there in August. My parents would be horrified.
4. This little guy insisted on helping. And being nursed every hour or so, just in case I had thought about weaning him too hard.
