Finally, A Day of Rest

I have a greater appreciation for "beasts of burden" today. The past 4 days, I have felt like one and I gotta tell ya, it's NOT fun. Like I mentioned earlier, we've been busting our butts to get moved downstairs. The frantic painting started Wednesday. However, Cory has been sick for a week and a half so throughout all this chaos, he helped when he could but it was up to me and both parents to get the job done. I'd wake up at 6:45 a.m., go to work until 4:00 p.m., come home, instantly change my clothes and head down to the basement to start working till usually about 10:00 p.m.. I really was worried that if I stopped moving I would just collapse. ANYWAY, the worst part is over, and today I can throw my "labor slave" graduation hat in the air because the projects we have from now on are NOT on a time restriction. Yesterday we moved all our stuff downstairs! HOORAY!! I didn't think we had that much stuff but reality quickly gave me a slap in the face. Duh Megan, we were just married. We have TONS of stuff!!! Thankfully, and I really am S0 thankful, Cory's parents and his nieces and nephews came over and helped, as did my own parents and Lisa. Oh and Dustin popped in for a while. I am so grateful to all of them right now because with their help, it went pretty quick - and none of this could have been possible if we were doing it alone. So guys, if you're reading this, THANK YOU!! I love you all! So that's the update on where we are right now. I'll post some pictures once we get the place cleaned up and a little more settled. We're so relieved to have the worst part over with! :)
