We are tired, and the children are cranky, and the jet lag means that we are all up at all hours of the night. But, again, this is how it always is the first week or so and the second night is always the worst.
We haven't even begun to unpack as we are just trying to stay fed and rested up to this point. But that ends today, because I am tired of living in the kitchen.
The kitchen in our house was redone last summer. It is really a great room. And because it has been recently redone it has a completely different feel from the rest of the house. We are all drawn to it and have "set up camp" here in a sense. The other rooms are for sleeping only. Of course, there is no other furniture in the other rooms. No chairs or sofas so we all gravitate tot he kitchen. It is the one room that I will be doing very little with because it has already been done. I will add a "pantry" and perhaps a moveable island for a little more cabinet and counter space but otherwise, it's quite perfect for us.
|Hejjo was the only one awake in this picture. He is having a rough time, folks. A really rough time. Poison Ivy is horrible. The high chair plus a crib were both purchased form IKEA the first evening here. Kacio is such a little prince!|
|The cooking and dishes area. Counter tops, etc. There is a really nice, huge dishwasher hidden in the last cabinet on the bottom right. Quite a luxury!|
The kitchen may be perfect for us, but the rest of the flat needs to be ready to live in as well, mainly for my sanity's sake. It's so hard to wait!
