making the move...


We have spent the weekend moving. Making trip after trip... old house... new house... old house... new house. Loads of fun, let me tell ya. And I keep thinking that after 4 moves in 5 years we should be better at this by now. Or at least not have so much crap.

We returned last weekend from the trip of a lifetime... all tan and elated from our beautiful Alaskan adventure... while reality just waited to smack us right in the face. We unpacked from our trip... I did laundry... but only to pack clean clothes right back up. Basically, last week was lived in complete and utter chaos. Here's the proof...

Then we started the trips. Every night last week we took a couple of carloads of crap, (ahem, I mean our precious valuables) and took them to our new house. We even revived the truck and filled it up with stuff so it could putter it's way to the new house.

Then we cleaned and scrubbed... swept and mopped... sigh... the joys of renting a 100 year old home. We gave the floors our best effort and were at least able to remove a thick layer of dust and dirt, but the rest is just credited to "character" and we'll leave it as is. Don't even get me started on the bathtub. Gag. Saving that for a full post of it's own.

We rented a truck and moved all of the furniture in this past weekend. Now we're just trying to find a home for everything. Little Cat seems to like the new place so far, which is good, since he is now officially an indoor cat only... no more of this in & out business. Hopefully we'll have some more photos soon, as we continue to make this house a home.
