House Tour

Steven's off at the dumps (quite literally) and I'm at home with a cold, so I thought Shelby and I would take this time to give you a tour of the slightly cleaned up new place. I must warn you that Shelby looks a little grumpy in all the photos. This is likely because she is still bitter about being dragged away from my mom's house which is clearly a doggie spa retreat. I would probably be upset too if my days of beef rib bones and 2 walks a day came to an abrupt end. She might also look grumpy becauseshe is waiting for Steven to come back. In fact, as I'm writing this, she's gazing at the entryway.

Here's our living room. It was the room that was covered in boxes in the previous post. We cleaned it up, but then a shipment of lights came in, so it's messy again. Steven's been very industrious getting all this stuff setup so I think we'll have this room looking decent again shortly.

This new place is actually smaller than our old place, so Steven's drums don't fit in his office anymore. Instead they are in the family room.

This is the entry way. We've got an atrium in the middle of the house, so the orange door at the end is the entry. Shelby is waiting for Steven to come home. Apparently, my presence means nothing.
Entry, waiting for daddy

Here's my office. I cropped out the part of the room that was still unpacked, but generally speaking this room is in pretty good shape since i had time to give away a bunch of stuff before moving.

Here's our bedroom, with a big ugly plastic bin of clothes in the middle. Yes Shelby, I sense your disapproval of this mess.
Our bedroom

And this is the corner of our bedroom where Shelby sleeps. She gets a view of us, as well as a view down the hallway from this position, so I think she likes it.
Shelby's bed
Yes, Shelby, Don't look at me like that. I know you're wondering where daddy is.

Speaking of daddys...

Who do you think all this is for?
Who's this for?

Hi Winnie, As I am glancing at your photos
of the house and shelby, and atrium picture.
Your new place kind of looks like
a cross between a Ranch and an Eichler home.
I love those kinds of houses..
Hope you get better soon.
