Day 17

We've been really busy, and it isn't that I've been neglecting the blog.  I just haven't had anything to report!  Jason had his first Symphony season concert this weekend, a recital, and Jason's cousin Allan is staying with us as he is taking the french horn audition today.  Jason also has had many contract negotiation meetings.  I've been working a lot as well, so we haven't done much work at the house.  We've had an electrician come look at the place, but he hasn't started working yet.  We rented a dumpster and with the help of Eric and Jon, Jason emptied the garage of plaster, cabinetry, flooring, etc.

Yesterday we moved in!  With the VERY generous help of Eric, Gini, Jon, Adam, and Allan, we moved the piano into the basement and the dining room furniture into the garage.  We also couldn't have done it without the furniture and appliance dollies that we borrowed from the Omaha Symphony.  We had to move EVERYTHING into the basement since we are still working on the upstairs.  Luckily, there is a bedroom in the basement that we can use until we are ready to move upstairs.  What do you all think of the knotty pine?  I've always thought we would paint it, but some say we shouldn't.  At the very least, we plan to replace the carpet. 

It's a side view, but you can see that we have a big fireplace down here.  It's currently surrounded by a wall of boxes.

This is our utility room.  This is the fridge from the upstairs.  Jason, Eric and Jon had to remove the doors and carry it around the house to get it down here.  We also had to move our washer and dryer the same way.  You can see that we have a lot of room down here!  I think we will survive until the upstairs is finished.  Thanks for all your support!  It really means a lot to us.
