We MOVED! (Sort of)

Well, the move is “finished,” quotation marks because a good deal of our stuff is still at the old house due to a NIGHTMARE experience with the moving company where we basically told them to leave after a few hours (they were that bad.)

The new house is amazing, though I was up most of the night from panic attacks about the fact that I’m leaving for Vegas tomorrow and everything is still so disorganized.  I have NO idea how I’m supposed to pack when I don’t know where anything is. It took me two hours this morning to get ready for the day because every single thing needed to be located (towels, hairdryer, clothes for me, clothes for Jasper, plates & utensils for breakfast etc etc.

Somehow I have to move my computer (LIFELINE!!!) so that when the Fios person comes tomorrow I can make sure I’m back online before I leave, otherwise I can’t access my computer remotely. The only problem is that we haven’t yet really decided where my office will be. We just haven’t figured out all that kind of stuff yet, it’s going to take a little while to sort of feel out how we best “fit” into the space!

Last night we lit our first fire in the fireplace, and this morning we enjoyed our beautiful view of the Hudson river while we sipped coffee in our mostly empty living room (we need TONS more furniture!) so that’s a great start!

In fact the list of what we need is a bit overwhelming.. have I said yet that I can’t believe I’m leaving??? Sigh.

At least Jasper seems to be LOVING the house, though it’s so big we keep “losing” him in it!

Here are the pictures from the real estate listing (i.e they have the sellers furniture etc)

I don’t think I will manage to be able to blog again until a week from today – at which point I hope to have great news about baby #2 and lots to fill you in on about WPPI!

I will probably be instagramming a lot (is that word?) from the conference so if you have any interest in following, my screenname is arianaf.

Have a great week everyone!!

ariana says:

@Jamie, I have a studio that’s about a 5 minute drive over a mountain and through the woods – so all I need is a space to edit and prepare client orders etc!

@Jill, it is our dream house definitely! That’s the reason we put up with all the hell we went through with our bank and are taking a loss every month renting our old house..and oh yeah, paying ASTRONOMICAL taxes :)

@Chantal lots of room for visitors!!!

Chantal says:

OMG!!!! Fa-reek-en LOVE IT!!!! This is absolutely stunning! You must be so excited… try not to worry too much, the house isn’t going anywhere and you have lots of time to furnish it. Have fun at WPPI and oh, did I mention that I love your house? I may have to finally come visit you this year. :)

OH MY GOSH! That house is a DREAM! Are you kidding me? I think I have to hate you now ;P

Amy Cyphers says:

Beautiful! I love your new home! Congrats.

Jamie says:

Beautiful! Where is the studio? How very exciting for you all relax, it will all work out and later seem like no big deal.
