I'm Back!

Andrew brought home a wireless do-hicky thingy for us to use until we get real internet service! It made me so happy that he did! So now I can finally post again, yippee! Our place is still a mess, and we have a lot to do, but we're making progress. We've had many adventures this past week shopping Ikea without a car, which is no fun, let me tell you. Three of the top stressors on a marriage in my opnion:  having a baby, moving to another country, and shopping Ikea in a large city without a car. The things we wanted to order are not available for purchase online, so we had to go and get them and have them sent via home delivery, so at least we didn't have to walk and take the train with huge, heavy boxes, but it's still been a big o'l pain in the rear. But we do now have a sofa!! We got the Ektorp sofa in a sand color. It's also a sofa bed (for guests, of course). I took the picture above with my phone, so it's not great, but you can see what it looks like! Also got my favorite rug, the Tarnby rug.  We had one at our last place but it was old and icky, so we needed a new one. We have a glass top coffee table, but it's just not shown here because we moved it out of the way. Also, the curtains and blinds came with the house. The curtains are very well made and pretty, but I'm thinking I'll get a different color since the sofa is so light and the walls are white.  I've never lived surrounded by white walls and never wanted to until now. I really like white walls right now.  More to come soon!

Moving is very chllenging, and moving to another coutry gives taht extra challenge to the challenge;)
You have all my sympathy! I have done that more than once and I´m still collecting my belongings...

It's starting to look like home! I can't even imagine the headache of trying to furnish without a car. Yikes! Looking forward to more :)
