This was the living room of our new old house back in March. I already posted about it once, but I’ve been flipping through photos to remember what it used to look like.

This was it on moving day morning, pre-truck. And don’t go asking me for photos post-truck cuz I haven’t taken any yet. But I will. Oh, I will.

Here’s that sun room photo again, for you who never saw the before.

And from another angle. This was what it looked like when we bought it. I doubted that this room had hope at first glance. But upon further speculation…

Ahhh, the after. Like my Costco rug? That was the I’m Moving Into A House With No Carpet Tomorrow And My Kids Are Really Gonna Need A Soft Place To Play Rug.

It was a good moving day, as moving days go. While I spent lots of time pacing, pointing and kicking myself for wearing bright pink underwear that tend to peek out from the back of my jeans every time I bend over (and can you imagine how much bending went on during MOVING DAY?), my kids were busy getting to know our neighbors. Now that we live on a cul-de-sac with their cousin, they are going to be outside all day, all summer. Which I love.
They have already begun to make themselves very comfortable in that sun room, which is of course as it should be. And life continues as usual, in a new old house we are learning to call home.
