After almost 3 months in Spain, our household goods have finally arrived!!!
There were 6 giant crates and 4 smaller truck sized boxes...what in the WORLD was I thinking bringing all this stuff? Particularly all these kitchen appliances that can only work with 120 voltage... Ay yi yi!
There were 5 men bringing boxes in and you should have seen their faces every time we'd send them up to Las Ninas room - ay yi yi! Those little girls have WAY too much stuff! And climbing 4 flights of stairs...and these boxes were HEAVY - those men probably thought we were ALL nuts!
Well, better them than me!
But, YAY!!! The girls were SO excited - it was like Christmas all over again! I finished unpacking and setting up their playroom first (to keep them busy while I tackled the rest of the house). They loved it and are still having a ball in there!
The men assembled our beds, put our dressers back together, but left the rest of the unpacking to me.
It's still a work in progress...
The girls are sharing a room - they wanted BUNK BEDS!!! And since Spanish rooms are a bit smaller than typical American size bedrooms, only the bed and 1 dresser fit in their room...so all their toys, books, dress up clothes, etc. had to go into the 3rd floor attic which we converted into a playroom.
My office is on the 2nd floor next to the girls' room. Johann and my bedroom is across the hall. Johann has a "mancave" in the basement. And there is a guest suite down there there as well.
The movers came back a week later to pick up the empty boxes and things are JUST about put together...
There's still some work to be done...
What was I THINKING bringing all this stuff to Spain?!!!
Now on to the rest of the house...
Ay yi yi!!!
