So my life has been centered on the big move lately. Nights were spent putting things in boxes, except for when my father was in town. Not that I could do much more, as we had a freak snow storm in Seattle that kept us stuck at home for days. But now everything is much better.
Anyway, back to the move: it was supposed to happen on Friday, but got postponed on Friday morning by the moving people because they couldn’t get their trucks out because of the snow. But we had everything ready. The bed was in pieces, all clothes were packed. So we decided to just take the air mattress and move anyway. And I was working on Friday, which worked out ok, because once we got to the house we didn’t have anything else to do. So I was able to get good work done in the evening and this morning.
The house is doing well. As I start to live in it I end up finding a lot of small things that could be improved, but it’s how it goes. It feels kind of odd that I now can do things with the house and when I see blogs that point to gadgets for the house, I can actually pay attention to them. Very time-consuming and potentially harmful to the wallet. But I have been good so far in trying to organize things and prioritize.
Tomorrow is finally going to be the real moving date (I hope), so it’s waking up early and going to the old house, making sure everything is ready to go, being bored waiting for them to pack their truck, come to this house and direct traffic to make sure I don’t have to haul furniture around the house once the movers are gone.
After that it’s putting everything in the right places and start to plan the new year’s party that will happen here on Wednesday. Mostly I have to have the kitchen ready enough to cook and then start to think of what I’m going to cook this year. The theme is “something new”, so it has to be something I haven’t tried before.
Oh, there was one problem with the house because of the snow: it had an awning in the back that didn’t survive the weight of the snow and collapsed. Fortunately it didn’t damage anything too much on its way down. I just will probably need a new cover of some sorts in the back to protect my grill when it arrives tomorrow.
Alright, enough about this. Time to go to sleep as I probably will have a long day ahead. Moving is very painful.
