Unpacking While it Snows Outside

It’s cold and snowing today.
Super pretty, fluffy flakes swirling around.
The snow and cold don’t bother me. Though admittedly, from the month of Colorado winter I’ve seen, Colorado winters are pretty darn mild.

My kids backed up and then overflowed their toilet in this rental and there is a major hole in the caulking here so the water leaked into the basement. I got to clean that up this morning while Everett screamed his head off.

Sometimes I think my life is way too similar to those cheesy family comedies where everything goes wrong.

Yesterday Allan asked me what my unpacking goal was for today. I answered, “To fully unpack one box.” 
It’s 3pm and I’ve unpacked two boxes so I totally knocked that goal out of the park, right? Haha

My internet will be connected tomorrow. It’ll be nice blogging with pictures.

Everett is telling me it’s time to go so… later.

  • Colorado is having a pretty mild time, so you're lucky. My husband grew up in Denver and says it can be horrible some winters. I'm glad the weather is cooperating for you right now! 🙂

  • We moved here from MN 8 years ago and I still can't get over how perfect winters are here. I love that my kids can wear shorts one day and play in the snow the next, but it's not piled 3ft high in my yard all winter! I hope the rest of your unpacking goes smoother for you:)

  • Have you seen the Oscar Mayer Carving Board Turkey Breast commercial…with the family sitting around the table saying this is like Thanksgiving only better? Like you have a lot of spare time to watch TV, right? 🙂 Anyway, when I read in your post that Allan had asked what your unpacking goal was for the day (and given all you've had going on lately), I pictured your response being similar to the wife's in the commercial when her husband walks into the kitchen and asks, “When's dinner gonna be ready?” If you haven't seen the commercial yet, maybe you'll chuckle now when you do.

    Sounds like you're on your way to getting settled…albeit one box at a time. Just remember, each unpacked box is a small (or big) victory given everything else you're juggling!!

    Hope your internet connection is up and running soon!
