It doesn't feel like home, yet.  
 It feels like we're staying in someone's vaction house, or a hotel.

A really nice hotel, though.  That has all of our stuff in it.  *shrugs*

So, I've done 95% of the downstairs, and today I tackle the boys' rooms. 

*lays down to die*  

Ironically, I need to clean house (sweep, mop, bathrooms, etc), but I can't concentrate long enough from unpacking the house to clean it.  It's bizarre.  The house should have the decency to stay clean til I get all the boxes out, right?

Aaron and Ethan don't think it feels like home either.  Every day when I pick them up from school, their question is:  "Are we going to the new house?"

Well, as someone else already lives in our old house, uh, yeah.

********

Sunday morning, Aaron was rooting round in the pantry (as he is want to do) and he asked the question:

Aaron.  Hey, Mom, do these people have donuts?

Me.  These people?  We are 'these people,' A.J.  We live here, now.

Aaron.  Oh, right, I know.  But do they have donuts?

Me.  No, they don't have donuts.

*********

I took the child to The Donut Stop.  Sometimes it's easier not to argue.

*hugs* I know what you are talking about. It takes me around six months to feel completely at home in a new place. Let's leave out the fact that it takes me that long to completely unpack as well...

You didn't know you took on new identities when you moved? You like strangers to each other. ;D

As ever, your kids crack me up.

Aaron is too too cute. I would've slipped a nutrition lesson into the "these people don't have donuts" conversation so Aaron's lucky his name isn't Daniel!

Must be fun to live in a hotel. G'luck with the final unpacking and have a good day!
I'm just me: *sigh*airmidm on April 10th, 2008 01:29 pm (UTC)
*hugs* I am not looking forward to the unpacking bit. Your boys are too adorable. :D And yes, the house should have the good manners to stay clean at least until after you are unpacked. Good luck, hon!

Poor Aaron! Imagine 'those people' not have donuts in the pantry *smirk*

How sweet of you to take him for donuts. :)

Good luck with unpacking. I still think I'd trade you jobs this week, though. :)

Hang in there.

ps. Feel free to call and rescue me.

Your kids are amazingly cute! Good luck with the rest of the unpacking and cleaning and all that. I'm sure you (and the kids) will feel right at home soon enough!

Yay for donuts! (I have to be pro-donut, as my dad owns a donut shop.) I wish houses would clean themselves, I really do. Maybe then this one would have half a chance.
