Soon...

Now it looks like we might be able to close the deal on our house 16 days from today. If that happens we'll make the actual move Saturday before Christmas, December 22nd. A rental truck is booked and we've already called friends and family to ask for help.

We'll spend the week between getting access to the house and the move redecorating some on the inside. The main part of the house is yellow and I'm not a fan of yellow walls so that's got to go. Yesterday we decided to go for white wall paper with some kind of structure on it for the living room and the dining area. My idea and wish. We'll redo our bedroom too but haven't really decided what to do there. Wallpaper or paint? What colour? Colours? Something a bit fancy or crazy like velvet structure? Paint the ceiling in something that's not white? We'll see. It'll be our room as the door will be kept closed (to keep cats out - boyfriend's rule) and visitors will spend time in the other end of the house. Guess we can go for whatever feeling we want; stylish, fancy, sexy, luxurious, cozy, dark... Hmmm... How would you redecorate your bedroom if you had the chance?

Now I feel stress coming on as there are so many things that I/we/he have/has to do in the next couple of weeks. Change our address "everywhere". Arrange for our mail to be delievered correctly. Decide on a new phone operator and sign contracts for that. Investigate what options we have when it comes to Internet services and decide and sign. Decide on what to do with the bedroom. Arrange for a visit to my grandparents so we can collect our things from their storage room. Get vacation approved by our bosses. Get Christmas shopping done in the next two weeks and have the packages all wrapped and ready by the move on December 22nd. Make my Christmas cards in the next week or so as I won't have time later on in December... And the list goes on...

Oh yeah, we also have to pack.

Hej Anna! Jag har varit dålig på att kommentera i din blogg, bot och bättring! Underbart att ni ska få flytta in i huset snart! Det är ju fantastisskt roligt att bo i eget hus har jag upptäckt :-)

Jag skulle ha gjort sovrummet lite ombonat men utan en massa onödiga prylar. Bort med tv, dator och bokhyllor om det är möjligt. Diskreta väggar med vackra tavlor som symboliserar kärlek eller något annat som ger harmoni. Mysig belysning både i form av läslampor, myslampor och ljusstakar. Ja, du ser kanske var det leder...jag tycker att sovrumet ska vara en plats för sömn och älskog :-D

Anna, I'm so excited for you! I know you have a lot to do and it feels so overwhelming, but you're going to be so happy in your new home!

Hi Anna!!
I love that you've already got a pretty good list going, this means you're one step ahead in the game, even though I'm sure the pressure is still quite high. It will be worth it once moving day has come and gone :)

I also really love what you had to say about your goals for better health in your other post. I fully support you and could relate to alot of what you said in there. Cheering you on from here!!

Gudinnan: Hej!!! Roligt att se dig skriva här. :) Tack för synpunkterna om sovrummet. Vi har tänkt att bara ha sängen, en byrå och eventuellt någon stol i rummet. Dator och bokhyllor får plats på andra ställen. Så det blir till att inreda ett sovrum och inget blandrum. Ska bli kul!!!

Geek knitter: Thank you, sweetie! I think I'm going to like it there too. :kram:

Brown berry: You know what? Biking to work this morning feeling a bit fluttered at the thought of everything I have to do in the enxt three weeks, I thought about your comment here and I calmed myself down a bit! Thank you! :kram:
