Yesterday morning Mitch and I did some shopping for groceries and other important household items. We have made countless trips already and minutes after returning home, we had another list started. It will be nice to be settled and not having to run out to the store every day for something or other.
After our shopping trip, we cleaned and finished putting things away. A week after moving in, we have only a handful of things to find homes for. It's exciting to be almost done!
You know what else is exciting? Yesterday I did my first load of laundry in my new machines! While it was still fun, and everything came out clean (as far as I could tell), I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the front-loading washer. Of course I love her for the plain and simple fact that she's a washer, but there are a few things I'm skeptical about: the volume of clothing she can hold (which manufacturer's claim is the same as top-loading washers) and the amount of water used (where is all the water?!). I'm sure I'll get over these things in no time, but I'll forever hear my husband calling me old-fashioned for worrying about it in the first place. Perhaps he should watch what he says or he can add laundry to his list of chores (which is currently everything other than laundry - yes, I'm spoiled).
Last night we had our parents over for dinner and games. It was the first time they were able to come over to our house to do something other than help us paint or move. It was a fun first "get-together" at our house. We ate pizza and played Mad Gab. Mitch and I received this game as a wedding gift and it was the first time we were actually able to play it. It is a ridiculously fun game - it had us laughing all night. I highly recommend it.
Today as been pretty uneventful so far which has been nice. Another trip for groceries/household items is in store (boo!) and then Sunday dinner with the in-laws (yay!).
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
