Our much awaited day in our apartment has finally come, the rest of hubs family just moved to the unit downstairs. It's the "moving day" today and despite the hassle carrying, moving and cleaning it doesn't really matter at all because everybody's happy having expanded our spaces. Now we can finally set baby's crib, changing table and other things plus set up a better work area for our home office. Them on the other hand can be more comfortable moving in their own place.

It's been tough all these past 9-10mos, we lived so crammed here and it's just not healthy for everybody both physically and emotionally. Everybody needs their own space and every family needs their own privacy. This experience has taught me and hubs many lessons and definitely stretched out our patience. It's not easy I have to admit that. Even if you are in very good terms or not with your in-laws, it will never be the same as when you live on your own. We are just happy to house them and be able to give the support that we can for the time being.

I didn't really have much participation and help with the moving since baby's all over me. Of course mommy has to take care of the little one. In fact, baby's trying to get his afternoon nap that's why I get to sneak and write about this great day! While baby's busy feeding on mommy resting on my lap, mommy's busy typing away! =P Hubs has been busy helping them out move furnitures down there and right now out and about getting our things from the storage. After 3yrs we can finally use our wedding gifts kept in the storage since it was shipped 2007. Funny that the gifts came way ahead than me and had to stay in the storage for a long time.

I was able to put baby to sleep earlier so I did some sweeping & mopping in the kitchen, at least one area done. Can't touch the living room yet because we'll have to wait for the carpet to be shampooed and steam cleaned next weekends. We're really preparing everything to be clean and orderly for our little boy, soon he'll be ready to crawl around here. I have some decors that I can put on, photos and artworks to hang on the wall and thinking of putting a window box or window flower boxes on 2 of our front windows for a little spring decoration. So many things I want to do but can't really move so I'll have to do it little by little. We have our new rugs that we can put in the bathroom and kitchen and sets of new curtains too. After that we'll just need to work on window glass insulation and work on the draft protectors. Hopefully this week we can have more progress.
