I am in the New Place and I love it. The Holiday Season wasn't very relaxing for me but there were things to be done. I had to get out of the house with AZ.
The police are watching the house and I cannot afford to be caught up in their illegal doings.
Jakes, Jaxon and I spent Christmas at my parents house and they loved having us. It was lovely to be in a place where I didn't have to worry about my stuff being stolen or my privacy being invaded. I didn't have to worry that the police would be breaking down the door to arrest whoever was in the house. Jakes didn't have to share the bedroom with a 45 year old man, who was drunk all the time.
Yes, things at the house are THAT bad. But I am gone from there and am moving on.
The weekend before Christmas, Neicy and I went into the new place and painted all the walls and ceilings. I love Neicy! All I had to do was say, "let's paint" and she was there. She lifted a 5 gallon can of paint off the counter and pulled a muscle in her back. She still painted with me though. We finished up the walls and ceiling on Sunday and I went back to paint the trim on Monday. I did a little bit of stuff at the new place on Tuesday but tried to relax until it was time to get Jakes for Christmas.
We celebrated Christmas and I didn't go to the new place AT ALL on Christmas day. Thursday, Jakes cleaned the carpets and I cleaned the kitchen and bathroom in the new place. The landlord finished up everything necessary for the CO inspection.
Here are some pictures of the new place before I moved in.
|My deck. I'm getting a table and chairs to put my umbrella up. Its going to be a wonderful place for dinner and sunsets.|
|The Kitchen. Its a good size and very functional.|
|Bathroom. I love the shelves in the shower! I've filled them already. :)|
|The Living Room is also a good size. I'm still experimenting with how to position the furniture.|
|My Bedroom. I love the windows!|
That's the new place! There are still boxes every where and I have some projects that need to be done. Tonight I will be finding Jakes's bed so he can sleep in it this weekend.
