Moving Day

February 8, 2009 at 6:39 pm 4 comments

I’m getting way behind. Who knew things could get so crazy on “bedrest.” Moving day was last Saturday, and it feels like a hundred years ago. I think it was the smoothest move of my life, thanks to the Keegan army.

10:00 – L arrives first, does not pause for bagels, and starts whipping boxes into her truck.

img_1289img_1287By 12:00 our 1 bedroom apartment has been STRIPPED. We are off to the new digs, 3 whopping blocks away!

And at the end of it all, they are all still smiling. It’s good to be a Keegan. I love them all so.

Next up, pics of the kitchen/bathroom renovation. The gut/wall demolition started Monday and by Saturday they were taping & spackling drywall. Unbelievable the progress in a week. Thank goodness. I’m 34 weeks and counting down . . . hang in there little guys.

To see pictures of the house before we moved in, go to our smugmug page.
