Plan B...



I have been looking at the photographs of the new house that have been sitting for far too long here at the top of my blog, and scolding myself for not writing anything new. I feel a little guilty, knowing that most people are assuming that I'm not writing because I'm just too busy moving. Well...

I am sporadically busy, but we have made what seems like very little progress in the moving. Carey was called in to work on his days off, so we put off the major move and instead have been driving over a pickup truck and SUV load at a time (an hour plus each way might I add...I know, I know...very inefficient way to get it done). The furniture should go next week in a BIG truck.

So what have I been doing? (That is a rhetorical question, and I do not wish to hear any guesses. I mean it Kelley. Ix-nay the ark-snay.) I've been turning on electricity to the new place, and seeing about moving the telephone/internet service. I've been making sure that both places are adequately insured. I've been picking out paint, and preparing to start painting later this week (at least behind where the refrigerator and washer/dryer will be installed next Monday, so we don't have to move them out again after installation.) I have been going through stuff and trying to pare down. I have carefully moved every single Christmas ornament, bulb, garland, and bough from their home in the guest room closet here to the guest room closet there...and it all fit!. I have been making myself lists of things that need to be done (but not quite yet), and lists of ideas that seem ingenious at this moment, but I'm afraid will be forgotten tomorrow. I have even made myself a list of ideas for future blog posts.

Oh, and I've taken a few photos of the old place...the miniature horses that the new owner has put on the land here (see photo above)...the flora and fauna that I will miss.

    I think I may be a little offended!!! Notice I said may be? That is NOT the worst thing you have said to me, not even this week.
    And yes I do believe you have been putting together lists. I'm sure you are using your time very productively, it was sooooo hard to spit that out, but I did it!!!
    And yes I am reading your blog :P

  3. Cowgirl C and/or V: Would you believe I have never clocked the mileage? I need to do that. But for now all I can say is, it's a little over an hour away. :)

  4. Don't feel guilty some days are better than others for writing. Your new house looks lovely and it really is going to be a joy writing about it. I love the picture of the horses.

  19. Sounds like my 2 weeks in Edmonton... It was an hour return trip between old house and new condo.. in city driving on freeways that were under construction... I am home the old house is not empty... Man can people collect a lot of junk in 60 years!

    At least by the time I left you could see the floors in all the rooms in the condo... but my mother had to have all her pans and pyrex even though the only meal they have to make is lunch!

    I swear I moved 50 boxes of Kleenex , 120 rolls of toilet paper and 3,000 napkins... Costco is evil!

    Good luck on the move... the new kitchen looks lovely!
