Unless, of course, you’re in Monterey. It was overcast/drizzly the day we drove into town, and these type of days have outnumbered sunny ones since we’ve lived here.
Thankfully, the day the movers brought all of our furniture and boxes was a beautiful day. I’ve done a lot of moves since Jarrod and I have been married, but this was by far the hardest. We had 4 guys bringing in the stuff in off of the truck, Jarrod and me telling them where to put things and checking the numbers of the boxes/furniture off of the packing list, and two kiddos running around acting crazy asking every 10 minutes if we had found the toy boxes yet. Luckily the playground is only three houses down from us, so Jarrod took the kids down there for a couple of breaks during the day. And once some of their outdoor play equipment had been taken off the truck, they played in the driveway and garage.
We’re almost finished unpacking everything and only have a few more rooms that need stuff hung on the walls. Beds for the kids are on order and should be here next week. One bookshelf came in today and another one should be in soon (it got misrouted somewhere along the way) to hold 7 boxes of children’s books. I have a few other odds and ends that I need to put the finishing touches on the house, and then the house will be done!
Even with some crummy weather, we’re still loving it here in California! We can’t wait get out and see some of the local sights!
