Got a lot done at the new house

United States

A lot has been done at the new house. The water is on now. The other day it wasn't on. We had it turned on yesterday. The living room and two bedrooms were painted today. The next to be painted is my bedroom, the hall and the solarium or sun room. The kitchen is a really peach and white. I'm going to sweep and mop the kitchen and two bathrooms in the morning. It will still be a couple if weeks before we move. However we can move our living room over any time. We aren't using our living room right now. It's the catch all place for all our packed stuff. So we can move our living room furniture over at the new house any time. I'm really happy about the move. Are you really happy about something in your life? Please share so we can talk about it.

hi dearest PQ thats really a lot done at the new house already. Now its the turn for your room to be painted that sounds promising, Hope you get the colors you like. Yes I am happy as well. you know how my life got better roughly one year ago and its still a new feeling for me that I am allowed and able to be ME. Life is worth living, you wouldnt have heard this statement from me before. I am much more relaxed and in general better off than ever.

Hi Dear RitterSport, I hear ya! I know what you are referring too, and I agree… you should feel FREEEEEE! I’m glad that you finally have your life to yourself and your hubby to enjoy. I am so happy. My room is a cream color. I have mini blinds on the window.. I will get a pink and bashful valance to go over the blinds. I will also have a bedspread that I am making myself… it’s also blush and bashful. I have 12 inches done.. it has to be 72 inches (6 feet).. It’s six feet wide and needs to be six feet long. I’m out of yarn right now.. and my family forgot to get it for me while they were in Walmart.. so I don’t know when I will get more yarn. Maybe we can go tomorrow and get some. I’m going to have my lamp I want… I’ll also have new sheets and new pillows… and a summer comforter.. also various shades of pink and pinkish purple shades too… I’ll have lilac throw pillows to accent my bed. I also found a beautiful hook rug to throw on the floor by the bed.. it’s pink too. I’m going to have my Cinderella Room!

thats wonderful news you will have the room decorated as you dreamed of. Reminds me of my first rented apartment where I had the kitchen painted in yellow, living room and bedroom in pale blue and hall and bathroom in pale pink..... looked pretty as I had always dreamed of. I also got me some nice stuff from IKEA to go with the old furniture of my room at my mothers house so that also looked good together.

Good luck with your move. I am really happy about the fact we had another grandbaby 7 weeks ago. She's a beauty and I get to see her on a regular basis. I was so excited last week when I got her to smile. Guess she knows the tone of my voice or maybe even the smell of my perfume. I've really enjoyed being a grandma.

Glad to hear that things are going well for you. Even though moving is a lot of work it can be exciting too! Decorating the new place and be fun and frustrating at the same time...finding a spot for everything, choosing paint colours, new furniture, whatever! I'm happy because I got a special delivery today. My son and his g/f sent me my Mother's Day present. This was my only day off before Mother's day, that's why I got it today. I'm also happy today because my hubby and I went out to eat. He works days and I work evenings so little things and time spent together makes me happy!

I'm so glad to read that you and the hubby had a good day and that you got your Mother's Day present. That is so nice. I'm giving my electronic music keyboard to my adopted mom for Mother's day. My adopted brother is coming after it tomorrow.

Wow, this is great you are happy and all is well with you. I am not all that happy even though I just got home. My therapist said to stay away till my court date. But,I wanted to come home so bad. I am glad to know you are doing well. I can't hear my tv because it may be broken. I will find out in the morning when cable gets here. It was ot plugged in till tonight since she dropped it on the floor.

Ohhh! She dropped it on the floor? On purpose? I've missed you Sharon. So is she still at your house or is she staying with that no good boyfriend? Yes I'm very happy. I can't wait to get moved. I won't be here much tomorrow until later. I'll be so glad to get our house the way we want it.

Glad to hear that you were able to get a lot done at the house. That is great. We often feel better when we are able to get a lot accomplished. Unfortunately I'm not seeing to many happy things happening in my life right now. Hopefully though that will change in time.

I think good things and bad things come in waves. I think they are temporary. Hang in there! Things have to get better.

Thanks. I hope so. As I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel yet. I'm hoping that perhaps in time I will look back and be happy that I was able to hang in there. That I was able to stick the trials out and see positive results in the end.

Wow, you had done many things when you moved and it is nice to heard that you are happy when living in a new place right now. However, to be honest i don't like to move much, i have to do many things as clean, painting and move furniture also, it is hard works and it takes a time for me to adapt a new place....

It's going to be so fun to sleep the first night in our new house. I bet I'm just going to look around at all my new surroundings.

dumb though it might sound, I am really happy I am getting my credit card. Finally I will have an emergency card for all those things that keep cropping up

That's not dumb. It's always good to have a place to go to borrow money when you need to buy milk and bread. Not dumb at all... and you can pay it up the next month and not have any interest to pay.

That's so great that you're moving! Congratulations! I've always thought it would be really neat to have a solarium. :) As for something happy in my life, I've recently been trained at a new position at my job & am really happy. I had to change how I present myself at work a bit, but other than that, I'm just really glad for the change. :)

Hi Tabatha. Yes, it is neat. Congrats on the job change. Yes, change in position will take some changes in how you present yourself. It's all good.

Oooh, a sun room? That sounds cool. I am excited about something right now, but I've been forbidden to talk about it. And this time I actually understand why I was forbidden. Hopefully, in a couple of months I'll be allowed to talk about it.

Hi Laken. I can't wait. I'm like a kid waiting for our move. I want my Cinderella room. It will take some time to get it to where I want it. We have close neighbors. I hope to make friends with people. I bet you do enjoy your home. I'm so excited. I believe the sun room will help our depression. .

Hello Ms.PQ, I'm glad that your excited about the new house, I know the feeling of moving in. I also moved in here last year and even though it is hard for me because I don't have helper to helped me with my stuff, I enjoyed my new house. Last weekend I went to my grandson birthday at the big city and I also handle the food preparation. The party was great with lots of neighbor kids . I went home yesterday with body aches . I just rest the whole day yesterday. But I'm happy that I can still join and enjoy the important occasion of my family.
