For having movers-we sure moved a lot

Well, we are finally getting setteled into our hotel suite.  There have been a lot of changes over the past few weeks, but I think we are making the most of the situation the great pipe burst of 2010 has taken on us.

I do miss our big screen TV and the guide feature from Direct TV.  I like to know what's on all the channels, so I can make the best decision for optimal TV viewing.  Our hotel doesn't have a box or dvr-so I have to figure out when my shows are actually on.  Enter-www.tvguide.com.  I have selected my favorite channels and printed tonight's prime time schedule.  For my first night camping out in front of the TV in a long time it's going to be a good one.  I'll be flipping between Bravo and MTV.  It's a Real Housewives (NJ & DC) Bethenny Getting Married, Teen Mom and Jersey Shore kind of night-I am very excited. 

We will be in a two-bedroom suite at the Marriott for at least a month, and the movers (and us) finally got everything out of our house so the construction can begin.  For having movers, we sure moved a lot ourselves.  They don't store clothing in the warehouse, so there were countless trips up and down way too many stairs with all our closet and dresser contents.  Not to mention my husbands "brilliant" packing technique that involved industrial garbage bags.  (I was on my girls beach trip-or else this won't have been considered a packing option).  Needless to say, I'm glad he tired out on packing before he got to my side of the closet!  I'm also glad we have two bedrooms in our suite since one is currently serving as a temperature and climate controlled storage unit (you don't want to know how many HUGE black garbage bags are filling this room).

Hopefully we'll be back in our house before we are too far into football season.  In the mean time I will be browsing the TV Guide website or have my nose buried in a design magazine or book.  Decorating an entire house is slightly overwhelming!

OH MY GOSH Sarah Beth! I was gone the week of your pipe bust on vacation, and never did get to catch up on all the "back posts". Now, after I saw this one, I went back to see what in the world was going on! I'm so sorry to hear about your accident! But at the same time so excited about all the new remodel opportunities ahead. I'm sure you're just sick about your brand new beautiful kitchen, but hopefully the insurance will replace everything to perfection! Keep us posted on your progress. Hope you're staying comfy at the hotel! Glad you're all safe (and assuming Miss Molly is too?).

Oh my goodness, I hope you all are doing well in your suite and I hope you're home soon. I admire your positive attitude!

haha. That's funny about the industrial garbage bags. My honey's solution was the same! Or the infamous unmarked boxes, followed by "Where's the box I packed with __fill in the blank__?" Check one of your million unmarked boxes.. LOL
You should totally post a picture of the hotel room with all your stuff... I'm imagining it to be something like when Becky Bloomwood stuffed her closet full in Confessions of a Shopaholic. :)
