MORE ABOUT THE MOVE.
A lot of questions last week......I didn't take very many photos of the whole process, but here are a few. Packing was really a mind bender, we weren't planning on moving at this time, but the offer on our house was too good to pass up, which meant we were headed for a rental for at least a year. Now, with 41 years of
The stripping down of the my craft room.
Betsy ( my desk) was left until the very last so I still had a place to keep my Bible journal and my mind.
Like working a jigsaw puzzle things got packed as they would fit in a box.
With no place to stack the full boxes, they got stacked in the spare bedroom.....this is just the beginning. Later there was just a small walkway to the bed, so I could sleep in there when DH had to leave for work in the middle of the night, and I was up late packing.
A long side of the bed
So what did we do with the things we figured we wouldn't need?
DH bought this car trailer all 28 ft. of it! No it is not full, only about 3/4 of it is full and thinking back I should have thrown away about 40% of what is packed! When we open it up for the next leg of moving I'll be sorting and getting rid of more.....
SAYING GOOD BYE!
The day I turned over the keys to Mary. Hannah and Megan went with me to say good bye to the old house. It looks so much bigger without the furniture, or maybe it's just that I hadn't ween it empty in 41 years :0 !
From the kitchen to the livingroom
where the kitchen table was ...among other things....
from the hall into the kitchen.....( sorry about the bad photo, took these with my old phone)
Hannah and Megan sitting on the fireplace talking about their memories of this house.
The floors were left a mess, the next day Mary was having new flooring put in......bless her heart for not making me clean that old carpet anyway......LOL!
DID I SAY ICE CREAM?
Oldest son, and family came by last Friday night and wanted us to go with them for ice cream. Nobody has to ask DH twice about ice cream...haha! So off to Dewars we went. Yes, Dewars that makes those wonderful taffy chews! Megan is working on a banana split, shared with her Mom........Hannah is finishing mine (she takes after her Papa when it comes to ice cream)
I finished with water
Now it was too dark to be taking photos with a phone, but these two insisted, stating that it was tradition to take their picture with Mr. Chew!
Well now, that was more than you bargained, for on this Tuesday.......sorry it got so lengthy.....but you all asked the questions....haha!
Now I'm off to make a couple of visits with the T-gang before the 4 girls get here. Grab your drink and come with me.........
