Settling In

Well this is day 12 in our new home and things have been a little busy around here.  I'm basically finished unpacking, with the exception of a few things in our living room/office area.  But we have hit a few bumps along the way.

Our master bathroom shower leaks into the basement!  We discovered this 5 days before we moved in.  We were testing out the water flow/pressure and when Mark went downstairs there was water all over the basement floor!  We told our realtor about it and since then he has been over here 4 times to try and help us!  He ended up contacting the seller (who installed the shower last year) and they both came over last Sunday with plumbers.  They think they can solve the problem so the plumber will be here on Friday morning.  At least we have a second shower we can use. (or do we?)

On top of that when we were trying to find the source of the leak we discovered that the tub/shower in our main bathroom needs to be replaced.  We found water damage and mold inside the wall.  It was most likely caused by water seeping in through the poorly sealed tile grout.  The ironic thing is this tub/shower has the exact same tile we had in our condo bathroom that we also had to replace for the same reason.  Oh and I was 8 months pregnant then too.  The condo is haunting us!

There has been a lot of adjusting for everyone.  I think Jack misses the carpeting, as this house is entirely wood floor or tile.  He walks around a lot instead of playing on the floor like he did at the apartment.  I miss the carpet too.  I had to by some new slippers because my feet get so cold on these floors and I'm not used to walking on such a hard surface all the time.  Don't get me wrong, I love the floors, it just takes this girl a bit to get used to it.  Our plan is to by some area rugs and I think we will carpet the kids rooms. 

Anyway, enough whining from this wife huh!  I'm getting back into my normal household routine and should be able to post more frequently.  I am on the fence about my videos though.  I just don't think I have the personality, and they come off as boring, even to me.  Maybe I'll come up with a better format or scrap it altogether and just post here.
