It went very smoothly. The movers were at the house at 7:15 a.m. I'm a good packer, so everything was ready for them They were happy that the boxes were flat on top and taped down. This let them stack them. It took two trips and we had everything at the new house by shortly after 10:00 a.m. The maid's day for the new house is Tuesday, so she was there to help me unpack What a great help she was!
We had everything put away by dinner time. Now we'll move things around as we settle into a life style.
The painters arrived on Wednesday, yesterday, and started with the bedrooms. They got both done. New colors make a big difference. I'll post pictures once I get the curtains up and a new bedspread for the master bedroom.
We're learning about the in idiosyncrasies of this house. Like the EP house, we are trying to figure out the keys and light switches. We also are learning a bit about the stores nearby.
I am having our maid, Marcela, give us cooking lessons and teach us related Spanish while doing it. She's going to start this coming Thursday with a shopping trip around town. Can't wait!
