Moving Update!

If you wondered if that last post was scheduled you would be right. I knew it would be crazy around here but didn't want to disappear altogether! So I thought I would update you one our move. First it was a lovely day! Hurray! I had visions of everything I owned being snowed on and ending up a soggy mess. But the sun shone on us all day! I should have widened this shot so you could see that there was another truck behind this one, a flatbed with wooden crates holding all our stuff inside. Looked just like those crates from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark!

We were sort of hoping that somehow our stuff would come out cleaner, nicer and upgraded from the state it was in when it went into storage but no luck. William keeps insisting that we must have the wrong stuff, we had much better stuff than this! It has really but me in a simplify and clean it out sort of mood. This is Joshua with the load we donated to the thrift store this morning. We have now sent 16 bags like this to new owners! I know I could have one heck of a garage sale but at this point I just want it gone!

As of tonight the kitchen is pretty well put together, the kids rooms are in good shape and we are just so happy to be in our own, new, lovely place! I hope to start decorating next week, you know I am going to torture you with loads of pictures! My big accomplishment for the day was when I found the slip cover for my other big stuffed chair. It has been torturing me with its ugliness all weekend. It was in a box marked "toys from the garage". Go figure.

Hooray! Congratulations on getting your stuff back! I know what you mean about "simplify" that is a silver lining of moving.
