How did I do it?

How did I go an entire 7 days without home internet?! I am still unsure as to how I survived. I was moments away from making every barista at every coffee shop with WiFi my BFF.

The move is complete. The weather in Chicago did something it has NEVER done for us... it cooperated. On the day after Christmas, when there's usually a foot of snow or at least a solid sheet of ice on every surface, we packed our moving truck in nearly 40ยบ temperatures, without wearing coats, hats or gloves. We couldn't have asked for better conditions.

The last few weeks have been filled with...

Loading moving trucks...

 Final clean-ups of the old place...

 And getting just enough unpacked to start working right away!

While we're showing pictures of old and new, let's take a second to compare old kitchen /new kitchen. Remember how I said it's a fond farewell? Old kitchen's counter top space: 3' New kitchen's counter top space: 6' feet with 5 times the amount of cabinets. FIVE TIMES! I finally have space to store our wedding presents that had to be kept at my mom's!!!

And this is as far I as got with unpacking for today. There's always tomorrow. (And the next day, and the next day........)
