i have become addicted to craigslist. there, my secret is out! okay, my husband wouldn't call it much of a secret but it's definitely an addiction. i have had to force myself to stop looking on craigslist for awhile because i cannot stop finding things i want (and convince myself i need). i never really did this in ny. it seemed much more of a hassle... too much to sort through, too expensive, too hard to get home, etc. since we did throw out much of our things when we moved, and also moved into a much bigger space it is partly a necessity... but i also think it's a way to focus on something other than the stress of moving and starting our lives completely over. it can be a bit overwhelming when everything you do is completely new. i'm so anxious to get the house looking like a home, but i feel like i have just hit the disaster phase.... where you have all the "unappealing" boxes to open and figure out a place for, the piles of clothes to be put away... etc. my mom has a friend who would move into a new house and have it entirely unpacked, painted wallpapered, you name it... all in the first week! i wish i had that kind of energy or motivation. i get easily bored and distracted.... things like craigslist always seem to be calling me!
(i did get some good deals... the crate and barrel couch was only $200, and sid's antique mahogany bed was $25 dollars!)
in other news... our little kitty, bell, is growing fast! and turning into a holy terror! yikes. she looks so sweet, but we are all sporting claw marks these days. kittens are adorable, but i'm kind of looking forward to her growing out of this phase.
we also had another lost tooth! it was hanging by a thread for about a month because he refuses to wiggle them, but yesterday he let us (read: aunt katy, because it kind of creeps me out) pull it. i love the missing top teeth... so cute! ack, it seems like yesterday that those teeth came in for the first time:( i'm not in such a hurry for them to grow out of the kitten stage.
