This is our house. Although it feels like we've done nothing but clean it since Saturday, it looks the same. Maybe this is why:
Saturday: Instead of unpacking, Jake spent the day cleaning up the tree-sized branch that fell onto our roof.
Sunday: Met with a member of our church leadership, who promptly asks us to speak next Sunday. Sure, we have time to plan for that.
Monday: I washed a load of laundry and then found out that the dryer doesn't receive any power. All laundry is now on hold.
Tuesday: Still can't get the pool cleaner to work. Go to Home Depot and spend more money.
Wednesday: Jake tries to leave for work, but has a dead car battery. He takes my car and I stay at home all day instead of going to the old house to clean it up.
Thursday: Finally with a car again, I head out to the old house, only to discover that I have a flat tire (#5 or 6 in the last several weeks, I've lost count).
Friday & Saturday, what do you have in store for us? Bring it on.
