The move!

Here is a little story mostly in pictures of our move! Poor Katie! So tired after SHE did all that packing!

Come on dad! I want to ride in the big truck. Katie was ready to get that truck back after she unloaded it!

Why do I look so grumpy? Didn't mean to! LOL! Katie and I were pretending to drive the big truck!


Katie goes balistic at the gas station! She enjoyed the ride with dad but wanted her mommy! LOL! Fickle hound!

How can Jack still be smiling after all that moving? I think he was glad it was over. Well, at least the move was. But my word all that unpacking to do!

An exhausted katie. I think we worked her to hard but she was so glad to see her sofa. Now for a good nap.

How do you like my fancy window shirt? I haven't had time to make a bathroom curtain yet so this will do! Anything for a little privacy and it works quite well.

We had a few glitches in our move but all in all it went well. The weather was nice and warm when we loaded but by that night it was in the 30's and was pretty chilly unloading the next day. We had a little trouble getting the freezer and sofa in and that was frustrating. Then dish network put our hookup off for a week which frustrates poor Jack. Lastly, the landlord had to have our washer repaired today so we could do laundry. Let me tell you it was just about to become a mountain of laundry! LOL! But we are in and love our house so everything is great!

So glad you got moved and everything went well. It will probably take a little time for all of you to fully recover. I have had window curtains just like your when we have moved before. like you said, they did the job. connie from Texas

Love your shirt curtain!!! Moving is a lot of work but setting up in a new home is always fun. I trust you will enjoy it.

Hi Michelle,

I'm so glad that you made it safely and that you're getting settled in. What a lot of work! I hope the three of you get some time to explore your new area and that the weather warms up for you.

Hugs to you.
