Homeowner Kelly here, reporting in to let you know all that has been accomplished these past two days:

-Yard has been mowed and grass clippings carted to the mulch pile
-Attic fan located, adjusted and found to be working just fine, thank you
-Plans to rent storage space because of no-longer-necessary repairs to attic abandoned
-Several boxes of china and other fragile stuff moved to attic
-Old, worn (but free!) patio furniture cleaned and repainted poppy-red
-windowboxes painted same colour
-flagstone patio swept
-towel racks and extra shelves installed in bathroom
-two final carloads of stuff moved from old apartment (Christmas stuff is still there; will get next week)
-barbecue at a friend's house; made my potato salad and ate far too much of it
-laundry, laundry, laundry
-bound all empty cardboard boxes into neat bales for recycling
-plans to empty more boxes within the next few hours
-shelves in my office put together; one set of shelving is waiting on another trip to Ikea for completion
-tools that have been living in the 'dining room' put away
-kitties throughly skritched
-picked up mail at post office and met our carrier, Richard
-new mailbox emblazoned with our name and house number
-new mailbox installed

No doubt I've neglected to list a few tasks. No matter. 'Tis off to open boxes of books and papers and random articles from my old office and find homes for them in the new. Somehow I sense this will be the work of a few days.
I feel: accomplishedaccomplished
I hear: birdsong

That's a lot! Sounds like you're getting quite a workout.
I wouldn't worry about eating that potato salad, if I you were you.

It's a lot of work, but worth it.
There's just something immensely satisfying in knowing it's *your* place (even if yours='yours and the banks') and that you can do whatever you want to the place without needing the landlord's permission.

I'm not sure it's possible to eat too much potato salad...not if it's *good*. :) (Unless you looked in the bowl and realized you needed to make more for there to be some to bring to the bbq. :))
