New Digs + Some Quiet Time

The Kid rarely takes naps anymore.  But he does climb up into the top bunk when it's naptime to read some books, or play with the toy of the day.  Generally, he waits until his sister is asleep and then comes slinking out, usually asking to watch a movie.  We call it quiet time.  Quiet time is Mommy time.  If the stars are aligned, Baby's nap will overlap with theirs.  I use the "free" time for laundry, dishes, outside stuff, dinner prep, any project I might be working on that's easier to accomplish without "help".  I also use that time for reading blogs, writing posts, trolling Pinterest, answering emails, etc.

As of this moment, I've gotten my Google Reader down to zero new posts and I've closed the tab.  I don't have a set date for reopening it, but it will be at least a few days.  It's my quiet time.  Time to get some things done.  Or just sit with a book, which I haven't done in too long.  I'll still be checking email, so I'm not off the grid.  I may even get to those posts I've been meaning to write for months.  Or I won't post at all.  I'm playing it by ear.

Okay, enough about me, let's check out my sister's new digs.  Yesterday, the crew of helpers got the Pod unloaded.  We got her kitchen completely unpacked and most of those things put where they'll live - for now anyway.  Today, the BIL spent all day making trips back and forth, hauling stuff they had stashed away at his mom's house.  Tonight will be their first night sleeping there.

I'll start with the exterior. 
It's a corner lot and the yard is awesome.

I'll have to do a yard crashers post, 'cause there's tons more to see.

Inside we go.

When they get settled, I'll get some better pictures.

In other news, Baby's first tooth poked through today.
So cute.
Check ya on the flip side.

    It has been quite a few years since I had a little one to work around :) But I still remember those days!

  5. I can't wait to see it live and in person!

  6. Good for you for lightening your schedule at least a little bit, Mindy! And what a gorgeous house your sister has--those hardwood floors are lovely, and that covered patio will be a great outdoor living space--I like it a lot! Take care, and have a fantastic (hot!) weekend.

  7. WOW! This house is seriously amazing! I'm so jealous -- historic, but it looks move in ready. That the goal for my next house :)

  8. What an amazing house! Such character and charm. I'm totally jealous that you get to visit it and help decorate (I'm sure!)...
