Pinkish lavendar

We have been asked by many if the new color of the bedroom will be the pinkish lavendar color that is in the pictures. The answer is that while that is the prettiest pink Jason has ever seen because it was what was behind the wallpaper and anything was better than the wallpaper, no, we are not keeping it that color. Other than that we have no real updates about the room since we are cleaning the walls and trying to get rid of the last stubborn bits of glue before we can prime the walls.

In the mean time, here is a look back at what happened after we put down the offer. For the cats, not much changed. There was still football to watch.

There were comfy places to take naps and to watch the humans put stuff in boxes. The boxes began to pile higher but time started to run short before the big move.

So, we called Nancy's mom to come a week early to help us pack and to do some of the last minute things. She was even there when we signed the papers, which was reassuring to know that we were on the right track. She would have stopped us if we weren't, right?Once we had keys to the house, we brought over the cats so that they could finally check out the new house. Harper loved the stairs and many different rooms. It wasn't long before he was bounding around and loving all of this new space.
Fiona, on the other hand, was not happy and refused to leave her carrier. The only home she knew was the appartment and she wanted to go back immediately. One of their favorite places was the back patio window where they could watch the birds and all of the kids go to the elementary school next door. One of the last days there, the two of them even shared a chair to enjoy the activities outside. (This truly was a rare situation. Sharing is not usually in their vocabulary.)
Moving day came and we had a great crew that came to help: both families and a few good friends in the area. It took all day and some cleaning at the appartment on the next day to get it all done. Sunday night we spent enjoying the Super Bowl amongst towers of boxes.

Once the furniture arrived and the house started to fill with familiar things, Fiona finally decided that it was ok to venture out and discover her new home. It took about a week, though, for her to really be comfortable with the new surroundings.
