Movin’ Out. . . Er, In

Tomorrow is the day — Moving Day!

YES — almost two months to the day since Brian and I first arrived in Utah, our new house is, while still not 100% finished, livable and so we are moving into Retro Acres tomorrow.

Yeah.  That’s the nickname we’ve given the house.  It isn’t stately or charming or anything — I highly doubt we’ll be getting stationery with that embossed on the top — but it’s appropriate.  What else do you call the house with avocado kitchen appliances, a collection of high fluted tapioca glasses, and a “Florida Room”?

Did I mention the ever-awesome built-in sunburst clock?  Oh, Retro Acres, indeed.

The two months of construction have taken their toll, however.  My mother and I spent this entire week cleaning, cleaning, cleaning the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms.  (Floor scrubbing!  ACK!)  But it’s turned up some exciting discoveries, like an Ableskiver pan (mmmm, pancake balls), a hand-cranked kitchen gadget called a “Shred-O-Mat,” and a tiny brass fire extinguisher from what appears to be the 1940s.  Its packaging features a line drawing of a man putting out a flaming Studebaker.

Anyway, we haven’t arranged for an internet service provider in our new home yet, so it will be a while before I’m able to post again (unless I can sneak a trip up to the library or whatnot).

  1. You are probably closer to the Foothill branch than the U, but if you still remember your UofU ID number (you know the thing that replaced your SSN all those years ago), then you should be able to log into the HotSpot wireless on campus.

  2. HOORAY!!! I can’t wait to see Retro Acres. Too bad you guys don’t have an old Chevy Impala to park in the carport while you sip your highballs and watch the kids run around the yard in their too-short shorts and sundress. Have you made an appointment to have your hair set?
