We Did It

I need to write an epic post to catch this blog up on our incredible life in the past ten days.  And yet, I'm meeting with new clients today - so I don't have much time to write, but here's the key points.

Friday, April 25 - I flew out to meet my husband in Philadelphia for his final class weekend.  (The next time we're in Philly it will be for graduation!)  On Saturday his class held an MBA gala, which I liked to call MBA prom.  We wore our tuxedos.  While we were away the contractors were working at our house, all weekend.

Sunday, April 27 - We arrived back in Dallas.  We franticly finished packing up Sunnyland.  The key word being: franticly.

Monday, April 28 - I left for work (it was my last week on my 15-month client) with my husband managing 5 movers and 6 contractors.  Good luck.

Tuesday, April 29 through Friday, May 2 - we finished unpacking (after work) while the contractors finished painting.  My husband's parents came down twice to help us whip the house into shape.  It was insane.

Saturday, May 3 - Approximately 40 people came to the house for a couple's shower (that was planned long before we knew we were switching houses.) and when the last guest left at around midnight...I could relax for the first time in a month.

Yesterday, Sunday, May 4, I wanted to stay in bed...but my husband made me work to take down the party lanterns...
