Home Lifestyle House-Sized Bite: Way More than I Could Chew By Star LaBranche Posted on July 3, 2019 5 min read 0 0 36 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr As we work through issues to get into the new house, it strikes me as startling just how much will need to be done in order to get everything where it should be. Usually, a move goes: move out of old place, move into new place, decorate new place, ta dah! You’re done. Our move is more like, move the parents out of their house, move them in with me. Fill up my garage with their things in the meanwhile. Build the new house. Move into the new house by combining all of their things with mine in one epic move I’m sure will take several movers and trucks to make happen. Decorate the new house. Which, I don’t have to worry about the parents’ generational suite on the first floor, or their rooms upstairs, but I will need to at least help decorate common areas as well as my new home office slash media room. The only problem with this immensely fun project is that I am so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work that has to be done, I find myself making meaningless lists, unable to even start. Not to mention that we haven’t even decided on a house yet (Although the Siena in Sykes Farm is looking more and more likely). It’s hard not to try to make decisions when the reality is that there’s nothing solid to make decisions about. Yet, not making any decisions feels like I’m wasting precious time and I don’t have that much time to play around with. Right now my Pinterest board for the new house is a mishmash of ideas and some bewilderment that no one seems to do themes for their home offices. Women apparently just tuck their white chairs into their white desks with their white pens and white vases with white flowers in them and go about their day. I’m thinking my office needs something a little… extra. But I have no idea what.

Hopefully we can either decide if we’re going to go with this house or not and then if we are, start thinking about how to we want to arrange things. The good news is that I found a program called Trello that has a mobile app we can use to keep everything organized. Dad has even embraced it. Which in itself is a big step.
